Simple entertainment plays no part in your reading? A shame, that.

You are right.
I often read for simple entertainment.
I get more emotionally involved with some characters in some stories. I get less emotionally involved with what happens to other characters in other stories.

I find that when I don't care what happens to the characters in a story, I tend to put the book down, and forget to pick it up again. However, you are still right: finding a story amusing and entertaining doesn't mean I would have an emotional crisis if the characters in it died.

But some stories and some characters cause more emotional investment.
And some readers have less of a support network than others.
For people who don't have a sympathetic support network, I'm glad there'll be an option of support available elsewhere.
It's not like people with lots of Harry-Potter fans on their friends-list don't expect to have people to share their feelings over the latest book with.
