it is just not a passion but a very important aspect for gaining the knowledge, which is the only weapon, stronger than the nukes. I love to read. NOT just in the print media, but also online. I have downloaded loads and loads of zipped files, including TOM SAYER, and such other epics. I have also joined circles and groups, like the CRIMSON CIRCLE, which talks about UFOs, Extra Terrestial beings, Star Visits, ASTRAL TRAVEL, clairvoyance, telepathy, etc, etc. I have been gathering knowledge from reading, about MEDICINE, ALTERNATIVE practices, Traditional methods, Para-normal, etc. So, reading is truly a method of LIVING for me. Goodluck, and happy reading.

Well I think it's both :) but it is also like an obligation to me to exercise or stimulate my mind.

Reading is a passion of mine, but I guess it could be called a hobby as well. The kind of books read most often is fiction. I especially like junvenille/young adult literature. I rarely ever read a book twice. I tend to feel that there is too much I still want to read and would rather spend the time on something new. Welcome to myLot, summerstarts. What about you..... what kind of books do you enjoy reading?

Literature and learning are lifelong passions of mine. Book and publishing have also been a big part of my working life. I am never bored of reading and I do it every day. I read books mostly for pleasure now, but I always like being informed and adding to my knowledge. I also appreciate good literature and I can enjoy reading classic fiction more than once or twice.

Reading to me is a passion and a hobby. As much as I love to settle on the couch with a comfy blanket and a novel, I don't always have the time I would like. In that case it's a hobby. But then there's those times when I come across a book that I can't put down and it goes everywhere with me and my nose is stuck in it every second I have. Reading is a passion in this instance and more often than not it is a book I will reread time and again. The "A Child Called It" series is just one of those that have become a passion. It is a definite must read series.
