Why Read?

Here are some reasons suggested in an email I've just received from AbeBooks.

Fact: Reading can make you a better conversationalist.
Fact: Neighbors will never complain that your book is too loud.
Fact: Knowledge by osmosis has not yet been perfected. You'd better read.
Fact: Books have stopped bullets - reading might save your life.
Fact: Dinosaurs didn't read. Look what happened to them.

The first one sounds like something from The Reader's Digest. Any more?
