Welcome to our series “The Readers’ Diary”, we’re asking readers why they read and what does reading mean to them.
As readers increasingly share what they’re currently reading and plan to read on social media, we wanted to share more about the people behind each post.
Reading has many different purposes in my life. At the heart of them all, I’d say that I read to learn. About facts and history and science, of course. But also about different life experiences and what it means to be human. Reading broadens my worldview to help me step outside of my opinions and beliefs. It helps me to understand. Through all of this, reading books has also helped me to learn about myself: what I hold to be true and important, but also those little things that seem important and really aren’t. For me, reading is a constant adventure with endless discovery.
