"Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.”(Scout)

Scout equates the importance of reading with the importance of breathing. This is a subtle joke but we can understand how much Scout loves to read. We can also understand that Scout is a bright girl with an intellectual curiosity that she had been given to by her father.
