What is it about reading that you love? I found that when I meet people, or see people I haven't seen in a while I usually ask what they are reading or recently finished. When friends say the stopped reading because of time or whatnot I am kind of disappointed in them. What I love about reading is the mental exercise of imagining a different world/place/time. I'm not trying to come off as snobby and there are lots of movies I love, I just think books really work the mind, and no two people "see" the same story in a book.
