I enjoy reading because it allows me to visit so many different worlds without ever leaving my house. Reading is a wonderful form of escape when reality gets too stressful for me.

Probably a common answer, but I like to be taken away from reality for a bit. Even a nonfiction book will take me out of my own reality. Its not so much running away from your own troubles, its more like running towards someone else's much more easily managed troubles. Its satisfying to read a fiction novel that takes you through a perfectly made web of events that all culminate into a beautifully crafted ending.

I started reading when I was eleven years. I began with Nancy Drew series by Carolyn Keene and the mystery after mystery was exhilarating and I just could not stop. Reading made me busy and I learnt to speak and write English better.
Reading is really an amazing hobby. I really love it.

I love reading because it transports me to a new world. There's nothing better than sitting down with a book after a long day and escaping into someone else's life.

When I was younger, and I didn't have a good sense of my identity, I used to try to emulate the characters I would read about. Whether it was a brave warrior, or a snarky queen, or a witty assassin, I would try to act like the people I read about. I think a lot of who I turned out to be was a combination of the characters whose lives I followed.

I got into reading when i was young because my mother did it and she looked so cool and sophisticated doing it. I wanted to look like that too and also i did it to have a lot to talk about with my mother.
