the best stories are the ones that we can see ourselves in, our classical myths are those stories we used to tell each other that had the most meaning for people over enough generations that they became our religious myths. i've never thought about how making a character read a book can be a device for helping the reader understand the characters better.. when i see someone in a movie watching a movie it doesn't really draw me more into the story.. in last action hero when they're walking around a video shop it didn't make me feel part of that world.. i did strongly relate to the protagonist in it tho who loves his movies as i do, i guess i see what you mean
