  • Why do we read?

     

    We read to make connections between pieces of literature, history and our life. When you read a book, you should be asking, how is this book important? Why did the author write this book? What can we learn from it, whether or not we like it? What ideas does it express that are timeless, ageless and relevant to all types of people?
