critical reading

I was studying for the SAT today. I was working on the Critical Reading section and passed by an interesting passage, quoted below:

Readers who believe that literature provides a memorable experience, who take the printed page seriously as an opportunity to enjoy a significant experience, are sometimes regarded with suspicion, as if they had lost their touch with reality and become escapists victimized by the unrealities of the imagined world of fiction. Such suspicions are groundless, for the very world of reality in which we live our daily lives is filled with imagined experience.
