Works of literature have the power to deeply influence people's entire beings, and what someone chooses to read can be defining of character even when they don't realize it. Once in the hands of the reader the author can usually do no more, but authors have already put so much of their effort and their self into a book that they can hope it has an impact.
I love reading books again and again. It's like coming back to old friends. And you will always notice something new or make a new connection that you hadn't thought of before. Even if the world in that book is always the same, the reader is not, thus the story will always grow.
