Earlier I was feeling really upset and my friend cheered me up by sending me pictures of Dorian and telling me about him and my Inquisitor reading together, but since Toran can’t really read, Dorian would have to read to him. 

So when Toran is upset, he wants to be read to. It doesn’t matter what it is, it could be the history of the Chantry for all he cares, he just needs to hear someone talking without having to listen or respond.
