Very important, Shiloh_222. Like you, when I'm reading a good book (exciting, interesting to me), I'd want to continue until it's finished. And even when my eyes are quitting, I'd try hard until the brain shuts down. That was what happened to me when I read Da Vinci Code. I stayed up the whole night to read ..slept around 4.30 am; the following day at the office was terrible. I needed umpteen cups of coffee to keep myself awake!

Reading is my life. I read books a lot and half of my salary goes to books. In books I can go to in different places that I never been to and I can take the role of every character. Reading is a good source of knowledge.

Reading is important to me as much as what I read. I'm not into reading novels and romance pocketbooks, I'm more interested in science and technology, personal development, computers and the internet, and much more. Constant reading keeps me up to date and stimulates my mind...

Reading is very important for me. I prefer not to travel and rather to read. Reading reduces cost of traveling and can makes you visit the whole world. I love visiting and discovering places and people through books.
