This gave me a smile. It reminds me of being a kid, when you really could (and did) read all day long. I’d love to get again that feeling of being immersed in a book to the exclusion of all my senses again, and come up groggy as for air when you were done!

Or read till it's time to go and make breakfast. Then go back to it.
Actually needing to sleep occasionally gets in the way of decent reading.

It's late, tomorrow I have to go to work but I will read a little more, just a few minutes ...
And then it's 2.00 A.M.
It doesn't happen to me too often, I usually go to sleep earlier but sometimes ...

It's a small compensation for the children mostly having left home and no longer being in the work force.
I do have to take time off from reading to do a few other things.

Reading increases my vocabulary and my knowledge of how to correctly use new words, reading helps me clearly articulate what I want to say. The knowledge I gain from reading also gives me lots to talk about with others.

I've been retired for about 25 years or so. I can read as much as I want to. How much I do varies a lot. This week I've spent most of most days reading. Last week was about the same. The week before I mostly watched TV shows with a bit of reading here and there.

It's not that getting old doesn't have it's downsides. It does. But it's really nice in some ways.

Same here! I also just enjoy using my own imagination and thinking about the book even when I'm not reading... I try to read as much as possible, especially in the evenings, it is the best to relax for me (when I'm reading a novel / mystery / fiction).

The very first complete story book i read, the first one without pictures and such, as a child, i lived the story, it enveloped me I could see feel and touch the story, never had that happen again after that magic first time.
My parents, when i went burning with enthusiasm to them to explain how magic it all was, berated me, said i was silly and it was al make believe. They send me to my room for telling nonsensical things, that must have broken the key to that magical land beneath the pages of books, i still feel it, know it is there, but it is out of my reach.
Still am a vagarious reader, but that magic world is gone.
The fact that i can clearly remember after 55 years says how much impact it had.

That's sad, man. You parents shouldn't have sent you to your room. There's no need for behaviour like that.
