I checked in at the Booking Through Thursday blog, which is the host for a weekly book meme or blogging prompt. Here is this week’s prompt:
Why do YOU read fiction?
I always read because reading teaches me something about life. There’re good stories and great stories. Good stories are good reads. Great stories that one that provoke me, that to which I react. Usually I don’t think about why I read because reading is like eating. Why do you eat? You need nourishment and and answer a craving. Reading is the same: there’s an inner craving to be satisfied. Have you wondered why the world is separated into continents and languages? Why people have different physical appearances? As long as we are different, our cultures diverse, our preferences unique, there are stories to be told. Humanity spawns fiction. Fiction might be fictitious but the motives in creating these lies could help us see the truth.
