Why read?

There’s a new Blog on the Block: Hans’ Reading Journal, which promises to open up interesting discussions on many book-related topics. His first post is “Why Read?” It’s a good question. He provides some suggestions; I provide mine. What are yours? Why don’t you drop into his blog to give your own suggestions?

Hello, I’m Hans, a 53-year old, slightly overweight, self-deprecating, happily married family man with a touch of insomnia and a great fan of anything culture and literature.

For a while, I’ve been resisting  to start a blog about my reading journey. Today let’s give it a try.

When asking the why-question about sports, food or travel, responses come naturally: health, fun, relations, experiences, etc. Why are these harder to identify for reading?
