I like to read because it keeps me feeling calm. I also love that I can be transported toanother country or time in history and empathise with the characters even in another world like the discworld series by Terry Pratchett. As a child I read the classics but now I like funny books, fast paced and even childrens books such as Artemis Fowl and Terry Pratchetts childrens books. I read 4-6 books a week and I always like to return to particularly good books as there is always something you missed first time round. I get very tetchy if I have nothing to read or if the library is on holidayand I need new books.
