How reading Twilight makes your life better

I always have a book on the go. So this study about how reading satisfies a deep human need intrigued me–and the fact that the study involved Twilight and Harry Potter books.

Seems that when we read, in our minds we “become” vampires (in the case of Twilight) in that we immerse ourselves in¬†the fictional¬†community–and this satisfies our basic human need for belonging.

(Come to think of it, I’m currently reading Bacon: A Love Story–and it’s taking me awhile to get through it. Perhaps I can’t identify with truly belonging with bacon; more of a just-wanna-eat-it relationship, me thinks :).
