Why do YOU read fiction? Here’s one person’s answer.
That's definitely an interesting answer, but with fiction, you both know and don't know what you're getting into.
You know it's not 'real' when you start it. One week, two weeks down the line, someone isn't going to disillusion you with the fact what you just read doesn't actually exist.
Non-fiction is equally readable to me- but I don't want that all the time. It becomes dry and utilitarian.
I want the swoon worthy heroes of fiction, the action packed fantasy realms of fiction.
I read fiction because to me, it's exciting.
