2. When I connect with a protagonist.
3. When the hours drift away as the words and pages pass by.
4. The silence and solitude offered by books.
5. Forgetting stresses and whatever else is going on in my life.
6. The sometimes cliched, but totally worth it, romance.
7. The blood-pumping adventure.
8. The need to know more.
9. My ever-growing to-read pile of books.
10. That I can read nearly anywhere, regardless of what anyone thinks.
