Except that I do have to take Tami up on her challenge for the night! Check it out here at her blog, Just One More Thing. She asks why I read and what I gain from it?
Reading has always meant one thing to me and I don't know if its common with all readers - I would assume it is the very biggest reason most people read - and that is to be transported to another place and time. The minute I start a book I picture the house in the story or the front porch or the lake or the city that is described. So I think that we gain imagination from reading - because there is nothing else that I do that forces my brain to work the way it does during reading. I love movies more than books I have to admit - but movies are strictly sit down and get involved in - it's all right there in front of you in big screen, high definition, colored TV. When I read my mind goes to work!!
And that's a good thing.
Good challenge question sis, and so I answer back with a challenge for tomorrow a.m. In the wee hours of the morning when the coffee is brewed - read 10 pages and find something to share!! Come back here and post it or write your own post!
Hope some of the rest of you join us!
