Wow. These are all really great examples and reasons. Thank you so much.
I know everyone has their own preferences when it comes to books, but it actually seems deep down we are quite similar. Something that engages the mind, attaches you to the characters, and takes you on journey (through whatever type of story or narrative you enjoy).
I, myself, enjoy the warm and fuzzy... well, I enjoy an epic story that twists and turns but ends well enough. I have enough stress in my own life. I like books that aren't like life
. But I completely understand a more realistic point of view.
This discussion makes me want to read more types of books.
