“Reading allows us to retreat into another world. It doesn’t have to be a fantasy world of witches and fauns it can be a recognisable world, like a high school. Reading allows for ‘ideal experimentation’. We can follow our protagonists as they experiment and traverse new social terrain. Through reading we can live vicariously through the characters. To this extent reading serves a valuable social, intellectual and critical purpose.”
