I believe most people like to read. It is just what you like to read about that may differ. Some people like novel, others may like fiction. But all these do not matter.
What is more important is that when you are completely absorbed in your reading and imagination, you are focusing your attention on ONE thing ie. the book in your hand. Other distraction happening around you just do not matter.
And time flies past…before you realized, an hour has passed (which to you may seem like 10 minutes). It appears that time is moving fast but in reality, it is your consciousness that is moving.
This is one phenomena of hypnosis.
