    Do you read books/articles because you agree with them or do you read to be challenged and think through things?

    I read books for both educational and entertainment reasons. I read authors I agree with and authors I do not agree with.

    How is a person to think logically about an issue if they only read one side of the issue?

    I typically read to be challenged (often I disagree with the author's perspective).
