- Friend: Why do you read?
- Me: I read to escape reality, but please do not misunderstand. When I escape from reality into my books, the world is different and I love it. I ask myself 'What if I lived in another time?' And these books let me live the lives through another persons eyes, giving me a chance of adventure.
- People who fall in love with the characters don't want the characters to be real, but to be fictional like them. Fans do not want characters like Harry Potter to live in this ordinary world, they want to live in THEIR world and so do I.
- I may be a bookworm, but that is because the lives in these books are more interesting than the reality that I live in.
- And that is why us readers love to read, because we escape boring reality to become the unimaginable.
