vudukungfu: Interesting.I get paid to read books.
Calmamity: I like John Waters' take on it: "If you go home with someone, and they don't have books, don't fu*k them."
Okieboy: I read at least 10 'actual' books last year, I'm on my 3rd re-read of the Dark Tower series just now and I only read on the toilet or when I go to bed.
Rising_Zan_Samurai_Gunman: I'll admit I'm in that group. I haven't finished a novel in years (several started and not quite finished). I've read plenty of children's books in the last 5 years though.
mcreadyblue: Calmamity: I like John Waters' take on it: "If you go home with someone, and they don't have books, don't fu*k them."Having met John Waters in person, no one should take dating advice from him.
Huck Chaser: Speaking as a lover of reading novels, I feel to need to ask.... so what? Why is reading always put on a pedestal as some sort of universally virtuous activity? How is reading 50 Shades of Gray inherently better than watching The Wire or playing The Swapper?Relax, everybody, it's just a hobby.

techgeek07: Okieboy: I read at least 10 'actual' books last year, I'm on my 3rd re-read of the Dark Tower series just now and I only read on the toilet or when I go to bed.Reading on the toilet is a highly undervalued educational medium.
Lsherm: I'll say this for the eReaders: before I got my Kindle, I read about 20 books a year, usually while I was traveling. Last year I read 82. Granted, some of them were series books that I just hadn't read before (like Jack Reacher) but a fair amount were nonfiction books or recommendations from articles I read online.So right now I'm making my way through "The Passage of Power: The Years of Lyndon Johnson IV" and "This Book is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don't Touch It (John Dies at the End)"I find being able to have a few different genres on hand really works for me. You never know when you get to bed or are on the crapper what you're in the mood for, and having a choice is nice.
