Learning is living. When one stops so does the other. There is something to be learned in every day, often by accident. I read a lot for entertainment, mostly fiction. Even though my aim is only to amuse myself or maybe escape to a fantasy world for a bit I learn about cultures, eras and places as I follow the plot. Historical novels let me feel as if I were there better than a history text book might. I think learning is better and the knowledge acquired has more staying power if the process is pleasurable.
