A regular feature of this blog is querying Big Read authors ---both those whose work is part of The Big Read library and those who have  participated in various Big Read events across the country---as to why they read. If you're visiting this blog, chances are you're a fan of reading. So today, I'm asking you: Why do YOU read?

Leave a comment or send an e-mail to I'll try and post as many answers as I can over the next few days.
