I kind of hate when my friends ask me why I’m reading something. Whenever I take a book to school that isn’t required reading it seems as if everything falls to a state of chaos and mayhem. What are you reading that for? Why are you reading that? Why are you reading a book that’s not for English class?
Maybe I just want to read for readings’ sake. Perhaps I just feel the need to wander.
“In reading there is an expectancy that does not seek to come to anything. To read is to wander. Reading is errantry.” -Pascal Quignard, The Roving Shadows
