為什麼要閱讀?

偶爾讀到一篇文章談「閱讀」的未來發展:The Future of Reading

文章內有個發人心省的論點:或許「閱讀」的媒介將會大幅度改變,「閱讀」將全面電子化,在電子書、電話甚至手提電腦上閱讀,就如在街上聽MP3隨身聽一樣流行。可是「閱讀」仍會是獲取知識、充實自我、交流經驗的最理想方式。如何「閱讀」、怎樣「閱讀」最有效率才是最值得留意。就算紙本書、紙本雜誌不再流行,「閱讀」也不會過時,不能被取代。

究竟為什麼要閱讀? 以下的理由很充分吧。

轉自 Stephen’s Lighthouse: Why Do People Read?

I also think we need a better discussion on why people read. It seems basic but do we really understand why people read? Here’s my modest unranked list of twelve reasons off the top of my small noggin (add to it in the comments):

1. To learn
2. To engage in hearing other’s opinions (to agree or disagree or just to understand and be empathetic)
3. To develop more knowledge about myself and develop as a whole person
4. To be entertained and laugh, to engage and interact
5. To address boredom and the inexorable progress of time
6. To research and keep up-to-date
7. To participate well in civil society (everything from news to voting)
8. To be informed (and maybe smarter)
9. To understand others (individually and culturally)
10. To escape our day-to-day lives
11. To stimulate the imagination and be inspired
12. To write and communicate better through reading others
13. To teach
14. To have something to talk about
15. To connect with like-minded people
