i am very fond of reading books. however, because of the very busy schedule i have nowadays, i cannot even finish the novel i am reading right now. it's been almost two months since i started reading that and yet i still haven't reached half of it. whenever there's a vacant time, i just sleep. i just wish i could finish that book.

I love to read, unfortunately I just can't find the time to do it. I have two little ones that never seem to nap at the same time and even by some miracle that they do, there are about a million things around the house that needs done. I am hoping to catch up on my reading when they head off to college LOL

Well, with having three kids during the day, it's hard for me to read then. but, after they go to bed I read as often as possible. I absolutely love to read and it calms my mind down before i go to bed. It really relaxes me after a long day with my children. thanks for sharing and God bless

I read books everyday. It is my form of exercising my brain. I want to maintain the sharpness of my brain and gain new knowledge at the same time. I don't want to grow old with Alzheimer's.

I'm one of those people who can't go to sleep at nigt unless I've read a little bit. I usually keep two or three books by the bed so I don't run out.

I go in spurts, depending on what is going on in my life, over all I love to read, and when I can't find something new that catches my interests, I will reread something I have enjoyed in the past. If I could I would read all the time, lol wish I could make a living at it, and house would magically clean itself. Yet I can still manage to finsih at least two hundred pages or more a day when reading for pleasure.

I try and make time to read every day, and normally I can get about 30 minutes each day to read. I am a quick reader though so find that I can get through most novels in a reasonable time

same here, i love to read too. but because i'm tied up with other things, like you- i havent finish the novel that i'm reading at the moment. i try to read whenever i have nothing to do at home. hope you'll be able to finish that book you're reading soon and get started with another one soon! ;)

I read daily and every chance I get to do so. I am a huge bibliophile, and I love reading. And have a extensive library though I have limited space. Mostly, I am working two jobs and getting to them both, but I try to read on my breaks and such.

I don't read like I used to. Now it takes me a month to read what used to take me days. I actually do most of my reading either on my computer or on my pda, I have downloaded books from the internet to read. I also tend to read more non-fiction, especially tech related books, those I need the hard copy so I can use it while doing repairs or so I can move back and forth among pages. I also have gone to listening to audiobooks. With Audible books I used to have a subscription where I would get 2 books a month. It was good to listen while driving or at night with the lights out (problem with that was I would fall asleep and have to figure where I last remembered. I still read as much but it is more reading from the internet, web pages and forums.
