A verdadeira razão porque eu leio / The true reason why I read

"I read because I hate how reality limits me".

Eu leio porque odeio os limites que a realidade me impõe.

Nesta linha, concordo com Mario Vargas Llosa:

But thanks to literature, to the consciousness it shapes, the desires and longings it inspires, and our disenchantment with reality when we return from the journey to a beautiful fantasy, civilization is now less cruel than when storytellers began to humanize life with their fables. We would be worse than we are without the good books we have read, more conformist, not as restless, more submissive, and the critical spirit, the engine of progress, would not even exist. Like writing, reading is a protest against the insufficiencies of life.
