Why do we read books?
What makes them so entertaining to us?

Well, books can be fun. I guess I don't like to read because I don't have enough books that I like to read. My teachers are throwing Machiavelli and Foucault at me and it's interesting reading, but hard to get through. I'm a fiction person myself, and learning how to rule the world is fun and all but I'd really prefer an actual story.

IMO it's one of the most natural ways to see someone elses POV within their mind and their experience.
When I'm watching a movie, I sure as hell don't want to hear some kind of freaky monologue over the movie telling me everything the main character is thinking. screw that!
