Michael Dirda says it beautifully…

“Pleasures of a book reviewer: To open a new book tentatively, with indifference even, and to find oneself yet again in thrall – to a writer’s prose, to a thriller’s plot, to a thinker’s mind! Let the whole world crumble, so long as I can read another page. And then another after that. And then a hundred more.”

Taken from Readings (2000).
