Hi Stephanie! I follow your blog and I read to escape reality. (Because, hey, don't we all need a break from that sometimes?)

$15 amzone gift voucher...That is really great... Well I love to read this blog as you have different style of writing. The way you present the content is quite different from others. So that I like to read...

Thanks a lot...

Tamera Westhoff said...

I follow you now and I love to read, because there's no better way to take a break from the real world with a fake world in which children aren't constantly wanting your attention and fighting with each other because you did one kid's hair before the other...

For me, reading is all about stress relief. I love to escape everything at the end of the day and just read a book. It keeps me happy. =)

Thanks for the giveaway!

I've subscribed to your blog via Google Reader. I like to read because it makes your world and possibilities endless. Through reading you can travel in time, space and all over the world, and live a thousand different lives, and that never fails to excite me.

Thanks for the giveaway!

I love to read because I feel like I am a part of the storie(s).


Vojalyn said...

I'm the first commenter, I can see :) Well, I love reading because I like getting away from it all and most of the books I read have a totally different world where there's action and much more passion than in the real life. I miss it in my life but I can find some of it in the books :) That's why I'm such a big bookaholic, I think :)
Thank you so much for the giveaway - if I won, I would spend it all on books, that's for sure :)
I follow you as mikki-mano :)

I follow through GFC
I like to read because it offers me an escape. It is my chance to be someone else for a moment, to travel the world, to fall in love or have my heart broke. I chance to feel!

Leah said...

I follow your blog.

Why do I like reading? I love entering worlds that are not my own and getting to know characters. I love imagining things and the stories allow me to do so. It's why I also like writing.

melora said...

I like to read because I can go into another world or character's head and just live out a part of their lives. I also like seeing what is in the author's imaginations in sci-fi or fantasy books, and getting a glimpse of what the past was like or learning a little bit of history in historical novels.

Thank you for the giveaway.

Marsha Ward said...

Hi Stephanie. I'm already a follower on your blog. Answering your question is a little harder.

Why do I like to read? Might as well ask me why I like to breathe. It's part of my make-up, my deepest self, because I was read to as a child, then went on to read anything and everything I could and can, even cereal boxes.

I guess I like to read because I love stories and information. I'm a life-long learner, and being a very visual learner, reading is a natural way for me to be entertained and informed.

Thanks for the giveaway.

I am not sure I am posting this is the right spot. I follow you. I don't have a blog yet - but I love reading - my Mom taught me when I was young the love of books.

Krystal said...

GFC Krystal Larson I love to read because it is my life -.- my dad taught me to read when I was 2-3 and I never stopped. I have cleared out library shelves and bought 10+ books on Amazon at a time much to my mother's chagrin. Reading takes my mind off of all the studying I have to do and lets me escape into a different world-I couldn't live without it. Thank you so much for the giveaway, I'd buy more books with it! edysicecreamlover18@gmailDOTcom

Thanks for the giveaway! I am a follower. I like to read because it takes me to a whole other world. It's fun to get caught up in a story line and forget about the world for a little while.

I have loved to read ever since i was a young girl. First it was about horses-Black Beauty- then I graduated to Romance and Vampires. Now I read just about anything. I love getting lost in the books for a few hours. It relaxes me.


Lolawid said...

I am now a follower. The reason I love to read is that I can travel to different worlds and different times, I can escape, and I can feel and learn so many things that I wouldn't otherwise, all in the comfort of my own home! Thanks!!

Reading is like breathing, something I must do. Reading is like having the key to the Kingdom.

I like to read because it's a way to escape from boring everyday reality, and also because it's entertaining.
