Why I read to escape the stresses of the day…

eBooksReading a book is my favorite way to unwind. My mind is taken to another place, another time, another story. I know ideally I could take a vacation from my normal routine and go somewhere exotic…but let’s be practical – that takes money and time that I don’t have. So it’s wonderful to have my instant escape in my books (and yes, most of the books I read don’t cost me anything). Even if I can only spare 5 minutes for my mental escape, my eBook is always ready from my iPhone to enjoy.

Why do you read books?

I can’t remember ever not reading,It’s an escape and a lifelong love.My life hasn’t always been easy and reading was a way to forget the loss and pain and be happy even if only for a little while at a time.Now even though things are great, it’s still an escape and a way to relax.

I LOVE books! I read because I exist. My favorites are the long-forgotten classics or the obscure, quirky, out-of-print treasures. And I can actually find these at my library. I really enjoy series, but only if they’ve been out awhile: they are more likely to be available at the library and I can read all of them in succession without waiting in line or waiting for the next one to be published.

I read because it is the only way I can relax and get my mind off of all the daily stress of working from home, homeschool my children, housework…basically everything.  Love that you post free books, just finished reading Sentence of Marriage….I enjoyed it so much, I purchased the second book Mud/Gold.  So far it is just as good…looks like I will be buying the third and fourth books.  Again Thank you!!

I read to be transported to another world for awhile too!
