The article examines validity of the analogy between the two empires of Imaginary: reading and love. Through analysis of a memory, two discourses are compared on personal and general levels by showing characteristic moments. Reading and love are observed as exceptional cases of „misreading/misunderstanding“, with common root in the Desire and deficiency. In a changing world possible changes in the experience of love and reading in the „new readers“ and a general importance of this analogy in the human world as the world of metaphor, are examined.
