    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Sometimes when you want to know more about a certain subject, you read about it or if you have had a certain experience, you read someone else's thoughts about it to remember your experience better. Other times, you have a lot of worries, and pick up a book to read so you can concentrate on something else.

    Just think about when you read and why and I'm sure the meaning will come to you.

    Reading can be both a learning process - in which you are reading to remember- or a relaxation, in which you are reading to get rid of the trials and tribulations of the day.
