I am a 19 year old student at Uconn going for my B.S. in Biology at the Waterbury campus. My passions include reading and that is about it. I read constantly and read just about anything. As a young college student I understand why most people my age and younger despise reading with a passion or are otherwise uninterested in it. I totally get why people would say movies or TV or videogames or the internet are so much more interesting than a plain book filled with nothing but words. However it is for that reason that I love reading so much. There is no picture of the location or the people in the story for you, the reader, to see and that makes it special because while the author might give the readers descriptions of the places and what people look like all the details are up to you and you alone. For example: a large castle somewhere in the Highlands of Scotland. The castle has extensive grounds with sloping lawns, flowerbeds and vegetable patches, a loch (called the black lake), a large dense forest, several greenhouses and other outbuildings. The place described is Hogwarts and the description I used is from the location section of the Harry Hotter Wiki. Now look up a picture or two of Hogwarts and see how boring it looks when compared to how you imagined it to look. That right there is why I adore reading so much and why I wish to show others my age or younger the joys of reading. Movies and TV and and the internet and videogames are all stuck to two dimensions and a set size with books the limits are what you as the reader define and in your mind you decide what everything looks like down to the last detail. There is no 'that character would have looked better like this' or 'casting that actor as him/her was a mistake' or any other compliant is just not found in books because what everything looks like is unique to you.
