Why Read?

True too of literature: we like what we're like. Why do we read? Not for truth or beauty, but the opposite: for lies and ugliness, for reflections of ourselves. For glimpses that would make us less forlorn. For reminders that others read literature too, for evidence that we're not the only ones who sometimes feel like we're the only ones who feel like this.
