I read because I like to because I love getting to know the characters and see the plot unfold then find out what happens. I read because I want to be entertained, because I'm bored, because I want to be inpired or learn something new. I read because I think it's fun.
Just sharing my reaction a lists of book to read. I have read several of them a long time ago. There are so many on these lists that do not thrill me in the least. Sometimes I think I would like to re-read many of the classics I read when I VERY young to see what I think about them now and I just cannot get myself excited about them at all.
