Why you love books?
Well , if u hate them you can always shut them.. But you can’t do that to people. So I love books ..?
Well , apart from joking, they make me. Improve me..and definitely help me at times escape from reality..?
There are many reasons why I love books, I can write an essay on it! But, the main reason is because it is my handy portal for brilliant adventures and new experiences when I cannot afford it in real life. 🙂
To quote Professor Keating ‘…because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion.’
Books transport you to places you may never see and you can read about things that you may never experience…I like reading about how others deal with situations that I am dealing with like widowhood and an aging mother and also enjoy books that feature places I have been or woven in real historical facts as part of the plot… They can teach you something and make you laugh or cry…
The more I read the more I love books a learned behavior that I’m glad I learned.
Because they exist
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
Why do u breath?
Because they work with any light source; the access is infinitely flexible; they’re aesthetically attractive to view, to touch, to smell; they have character, imbued by their individual history as well as their content; they’re reliable; they’re easy to mend; they’re robust; they don’t depend on the latest technology; you can read alone or aloud to others – or even just to yourself, if the passage strikes you; the information in a textbook or reference book has been thoroughly checked (usually, anyway); & well-written fiction can transform not only your surroundings but yourself.
Many reasons. You can escape reality into someone else’s world, a wonderful way to learn new things to name a couple. It is my way of relaxing daily.
Cz its better than some ppl and distract me and i go places for free
They are the basic self teaching tool that can make you smarter and lead you to anywhere in the world, Improves your vocabulary and verbal abilities making you more interesting to listen to. Reading improves focus, concentration, and memory. It improves your imagination. And reading has been proven to reduce stress
To escape from my crazy family lol
I want to travel far and talk to people, but don’t have money for that and my family or friends would not have me do such a thing. I read books for adventures that I want.
Escape from reality, new knowledge, lasting impressions, make my endorphins surge :):):)
Books take one on great adventures. Also takes one away from ones own hectic life so one can destress.
Humans are the only living beings which can put down their thoughts to be carried on to generations. Each time you read a book you enter someone else’s mind and think like them. Reading really enriches ones life.
They give us places to go when we have to stay where we are
They have always been my closest friends when I had no real ones. They never let me down and are always handy to share a thought or an opinion. They are quiet and say what they mean. Being kind of a loner it goes without saying that with a book you are never alone.
Being an only child, they were my first friends, and today are still my best friends.
I can escape…
It keeps me from getting sucked up into other people’s drama. I can find peace while reading. There is so much negative in this world that I am thankful I don’t have TV.
Very well put ☺
Thank you! ☺
they open up another world.. you can leave everything behind you for a while.
Reading is love, a state of mind, a life, and it helps me to write
They can teach you about your world. In your time,at your place. They can take you to magical places.
They give me an escape from reality and give me the opportunity to experience more than one life
Because I can meet so many new people through them and can also forget about the rubbish parts of my life for a while.
Because it helps me escape reality.
It’s my ticket to traveling anywhere. And with no interruptions.
Too many reasons to list!
It’s an escape. A chance to live another life, go on adventures, go places that do and don’t exist.
Can’t explain it !!! I just am drawn to them !!
spend a lot of time alone and makes time go fast
So I don’t have to deal with stupid people ?
Turning the pages, sometimes not wanting the book to end
Love all these answers.. but my reason is a bit different..
I never used to like books.. couldnt stand reading. When I got into the 5th grade, my mom started dating this guy. Well before you knew it.. they were both on drugs really bad. Their friends would come over and me and my sisters was sent to our rooms.. we wasnt aloud to talk or be loud or anything. So to pass the time, I started borrowing books from the library, so I can read while I was in my room. When I got into high school, and put into foster care, I was diagnosed with severe social anxiety because of my mother and her boyfriend, and books helped my anxiety! I would read in school when I started to have a anxiety attack! We wasn’t aloud to go anywhere or have friends over, and I didn’t have any friends. So books became my friend. They became my home away from home, I didn’t have a care or worry in the world. It seemed liked as long as I was reading, I didn’t have to worry about anything and even seemed like I joined the characters in my book in their world! This is my reason! I’m not ashamed of my childhood.. it made me the person I am today! I am so glad that books where there when I felt nobody else was!!
Btw.. I am not looking for a pity party or anybody to feel sorry.. I just wanted to share my reason why I love books!!
That’s a reason worth sharing and may help many kids in this world! Thank You for sharing it.
Thank you! And your welcome!!
You are one of the toughest person I’ve ever known. Thank you for sharing this.
Its a great feeling to like see a new world. The stories are great. I just love it. Like everything. Its an escape from reality. Its an adventure and i love that.
I can create my own imaginary world by reading books. You can’t get that when you watch movies ?
They take me away from all the stress and worries in my life. For a while, I can escape into the wonderful world of fiction and relax completely!
exactly the same for me 🙂
To feed my brain.
My best friend ever.
Because they love the way I want them too.
I need a reason why? Books are life, therefore I read to live.
They are my window to the other worlds, the language transports me to another dimension of life whether it be the story of another individual or the mystery of a crime. I love fiction because it gives me time off from reality. I have physical issues and through books I have learnt and discovered so many new places and cultures. Books are my solace through bad times, my refuge in times of anxiety and my pleasure when I am happy. I remember these lines from a poem about books, “my never failing friends are they, with whom I converse Day by day, with them I take delight in weak and seek relief in woe while I understand and feel how much to them i owe” ya books are pretty much my companions through highs and lows. That’s why I love them.
Because they help me escape bullshit and idiocy that is in real life
They are the ticket to world’s thst never were. A magical escape to the imagination. They are fun, relaxing. Knowledge teachers that stimulate the mind and I love stories. The reason I love reading are numerous.
They take me to another place.
reading is actually a coping mechanism for me. Escaping from the reality even if i read realistic fiction.
Worlds and people and worlds and people!
Because they can take you to many different places and different times
to live a temporary fictional life.
Transports me to other worlds, makes me think, and keeps my mind active.
Great way to relax, see different places and takes me to different places.
Hard question, because I can go on and on why I love books. But I’ll just settle with this reason: they’re full of knowledge and make my imagination stronger.
Because they take me away from my miserable life.
Josie~~Because I can get lost in it. Also I’m not any sort of social butterfly, with a book I don’t have to be.
Escape from the realities of this crazy world…..
Originally I started reading books in my late teens as I was living in a non-English speaking country and I wanted to improve my English before going to live in England. But once I started, I was hooked … forty years later and I still prefer reading over other activities. I find books more entertaining than TV most of the time and will read whilst my husband watches the TV (usually I can descend into the story sufficiently well to avoid hearing the TV). I love reading about how an author makes people interact with one another in all sorts of made-up scenarios – the more bizarre and removed from reality the better as you then really get to focus on the social interactions (i.e. if it’s not like reality then I’ve no preconceptions). I guess that makes me a people-watcher of sorts.
Escape and journey
It’s like a boyfriend that you can’t live without.
I find love in it 🙂
They give me joy.
I love books because they act as portals to other places, other times, and other worlds; because they introduce us to the perspectives, ideas, and cultures of others who we can never meet and may not think like. I love the way that reading requires comprehension, and thus requires we learn to understand these worlds and gain a new perspective for ourselves (even if that is ‘just’ a strengthened version of our own at times). I love getting lost in a world I imagine; one that is most likely different from the author’s, but is still inexorably connected to the narrative they wrote. I love the imagery and storytelling I see in certain authors’ works, that’s so masterful that I -can- get lost in their books from the start to the end and not think twice of it, and I love the books that make me think, that stop me in my tracks and bring me to a realization I may well have not had at all without reading them. I also love to read for the escape we get to go on, without ever leaving our couches or beds or wherever we read. That is the joy of books to me <3
I find I am happiest when I am reading. Have had a love for books since childhood. Reading is my comfort and peace. It is almost like breathing for me.
because reality sucks
Because I can travel anywhere, and can jump from past, to future, and the present.
I feel a calm, peace with books. The amazing stories and lives of the characters.
Oh, & because I love being surrounded by them, knowing that at any moment I can take one down & vanish into it.
And I much prefer to research with books (though modern pressures can make this difficult). With reference books, one can always trip over something intriguing & new, & which is nothing to do with your original research. Computers can’t do that.
