Razones para leer

Como posteamos en facebook, circula un pequeño manifiesto (creado ingeniosamente por el sello editorial El Barco de Vapor) sobre las razones para leer.

Entre ellas, aparecen mencionadas:

"Para huir del ruido"
"Para aprender a pensar"
"Para aprender a conocer a los otros"
"Para saber que no estamos solos"
"Para saber que estamos vivos"
"Para no ser lo que somos"
"Para detener el tiempo"

A lo que nuestros amigos en facebook agregaron:

"Para salvarnos de nosotros mismos"
"Para conocer lo que los demás piensan"
"Para sentirme vivo"

Estos son algunos de los motivos con que los lectores justifican su afición a los libros. Y ¿qué dicen los propios escritores, los que escriben lo que luego leemos? Ellos también han leído; algunos, incluso, le asignan más importancia a leer que a escribir (tenemos de ejemplo la famosa frase de Borges: "Que otros se jacten de las páginas que han escrito; a mí me enorgullecen las que he leído"). Veamos algunas de las declaraciones de narradores y poetas sobre el beneficio de leer:

"He buscado en todas partes el sosiego y no lo he encontrado sino sentado en un rincón apartado con un libro en las manos" (Jorge Santanaya, filósofo y literato estadounidense de origen español).

"Un libro debe ser el hacha que quiebre el mar helado dentro de nosotros" (Franz Kafka, escritor checo).

"El efecto que tienen los libros sobre la vida no se puede medir. La gran literatura nos hace desconfiar de lo que nos rodea y nos crea el apetito de la perfección y la belleza" (Mario Vargas Llosa, escritor peruano y Premio Nobel de Literatura).

"Sucede que leer es aceptar una convención: el lector asume el candor necesario para creer en esas ficciones, esas magias, esas mentiras que alguien urdió con palabras. Afrontará los peligros que eso entraña porque el fin último es la felicidad" (Isidoro Blaisten, escritor argentino).

¿Qué creen ustedes?

  3. Yo leo, porque así viajo por el mundo y conozco otros lugares, la lectura me describe lugares exóticos y maravillosos, rutas que otros han recorrido y que a través de las letras me hacen imaginar... ademas de que así vivo otras vidas y otras experiencias..

  10. Leo para aprender.
    Pienso que los escritores trascienden con sus obras.
    Me quedo con la opinión de Mario Vargas Llosa "El efecto que tienen los libros sobre la vida no se puede medir"...

  11. parece una variacion de las primeras, pero creo que es importante "Leer para comprenderse a travez de los otros", quiero decir, la lectura es un espacio donde por ejemplo se puede discutir al individuo (uno mismo) sin estar obligado a defenderlo (como sucederia en una conversacion). Este tipo de operaciones "metacognitivas" ocurren naturalmente durante una lectura y son imposibles o bien muy raras o dificiles en otros ambitos.

  12. Leo principalmente por la noche, en la cama, antes de dormir. Procuro que la historia no me enganche demasiado y, por esa razón, tarde en dormir. Quiero únicamente distraerme de los altibajos del día y meterme en el mundo que el autor de la novela me dicte. Cuando cierro el libro me siento descansada y relajada. Si el libro es malo o mediocre me distraigo criticándolo; Como el autor no me oye no hago mal a nadie...Creo. Elita

  13. Leo para aprender lo que no se, para vivir lo que no vivo, para enseñar después lo que he aprendido y para imaginar que estoy donde no puedo estar.

  20. Leo porque me transporta, me introduzco en la historia y participo. Me cuesta dejar de leer, el cansancio me supera. Al otro dia quiero continuar,el tiempo no existe. En el metro el viaje se hace cortísimo; en casa hasta que anochece, en la playa a la hora de la siesta, todos esos tiempos son demasiado breves.

  21. Leo para excitar la imaginacion con deleites nuevos. Y desde ahi sacar conclusiones nuevas de este mundo inconcluso.
