On what is reading, here's a definition for it: Reading is the process of retrieving and comprehending some form of stored information or ideas. These ideas are usually some sort of representation of language, as symbols to be examined by sight, or by touch (for example Braille). Other types of reading may not be language-based, such as music notation or pictograms. By analogy, in computer science, reading is acquiring of data from some sort of computer storage. On why people read for fun, well I for one do enjoy reading not only to pass time but I do get some form of entertainment while reading. Also a bit pleasure and I feel that I'm adding to my knowledge. greetings. : )

i like reading cause it doesnt limit the story unlike a movie. In a movie you really see the environment and how the people look like. With a book it's completely different you can let your imagination work things out. So for me the book is always better then the movie.
