Why Read

A good friend once challenged me, "Why do you read?  What's the point?"  I considered for a moment creating a mission statement but decided that a Letterman top 10 list would suffice.  The reasons:

1. To learn

2. To visit other worlds

3. To expand our sense of what is possible

4. To seek new things to which we can aspire

5. To find clues and answers to what our lives are meant to be

6. To challenge ourselves and to be changed

7. To participate in the “great conversation”

8. To learn about the human condition

9. To observe beautiful artistry

10. To pass the time

So, why do you read?
