In 1st Place we had For Pleasure.

2nd Place was a three-way tie :

For Research, For Enlightenment, and For Improving My Writing

3rd Place was a two-way tie :

For Escape and For Insights

4th Place was a three-way tie :

For Study, For Fun, and For The Plot

5th Place was a two-way tie :

For the Characters and For Self-Improvement

6th Place had For School

Plus, there was one Comment :

“I enjoy reading, so I read. Sometimes it is for pleasure and other times, it is for work. There are times when I read to learn something new.”

~~~

Now for this week’s Polls–one for Readers and one for Writers (and, some of you will be able to take them both).

Multiple answers are definitely welcomed and I think the “Other” Space will get a lot of use this week :-)
