books are the main source for various things .........and they also give a variety of emotions to the reader..... do you take or derive something fromm your reading or do you just read for pleasure.......for time pass???

My sole reason for reading is to gain additional knowledge and in able to do that you will certainly spend time on reading. Reading is one of the most beneficial to human brain it feed lots of information and sometimes a sudden twist of emotion. I value the time I spend reading informative books and I don't do it for recreation only. Cheers to us.

for me, it's both. i read to pass the time, but at the same time, i learn a lot from what i'm reading. it may be a new word, a different writing style, a cool expression, anything at all.
