Why read, from Dr Johnson a LONG time ago:

"Some read that they may embellish their conversation, or shine in dispute; some that they may not be detected in ignorance, or want the reputation of literary accomplishments: but the most general and prevalent reason of study is the impossibility of finding another amusement equally cheap or constant, equally independent on the hour or the weather.”

....not to mention for some of us hermits, such study is about the ONLY semblance of connection(if only one-sided) we have with other humans....L.B.
