I live the stories I read, the stories I write.
I imagine myself in the same places as the characters I’m reading about. I imagine the space they’re in, the people they’re interacting with, what the weather is like. I’m able to live in a whole different world just by reading a story.
And when a story is written to perfection, the sense of belonging to the story becomes even greater and allows me to be at one with the characters, in a way that lets me leave my life behind and live a new one in peace. That’s why I love reading fiction books, because it is so different than my current life.
Books based on real events, historical books, business books, etc., just don’t have the same effect on me. And yes, I do love reading anything, but the purpose for which I’m reading different books is very dissimilar.
