Ah, Mihaela Lica, four excellent reasons to add to the list! Thank you!

All great reasons, including Mig's additions. The top for me is #15 - I've loved to read for as long as I can remember. When I was a child, my mother used to say that when I was reading I was oblivious to everything around me, and I can still get lost in books today.

I love the feeling of getting lost in stories, finding new worlds. Reading is one of the greatest "inventions" ever! This was a great list!

Lisa Vella said...

Lillie and Julia, I think getting lost in stories is one of my favorite reasons to read, too! As number four on the list says, "It's a great escape."

Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!

It helps me recognize good writing.

It makes me laugh, cry, feel inspired, mad, want to visit the locale.

I don't watch television, so....

Nice blog.

I would have to say #15 applies to me the most. Regardless of whether it improves your writing skills or educates, it is just something you either love or dislike.
