I like to read but I kinda go in spells where I will read a lot for a few months and then I'll go where I don't read any books for a little while. Last month I read about 5 books and this month I haven't really read very much. I do have a book that I'm reading and it's in a series but I just haven't really read much of it. I need to just sit down and finish the book so I can move on to the next one in the series. I can read pretty fast and can read a book in a couple of days.

Only if I need to learn a new program or some programming language for my web design business. As for fiction, ahh I miss those books but not enough time =(

I read books every chance I get. When I was still in high school until mid years in college, I used to read every weekends. Novels, self-help, and relationship-related books, I read them all. Now, I only get to read once every months or so. I spend more time reading blogs and or articles online. But I haven't forgotten or lost the love for paperbacks, in fact I have a list of new novels that I'm planning to buy and read one of these days.

Hello Apples. I love reading ever since I first discovered it as a young child. Every day, I read something. I begin a novel and read some of it each day until finished, and then I read another. I figure I have, by now, read thousands of books in my life! Karen

in a matter fact i spent the last 5 years reading books,novels,stories, and i still do everyday when i have time, at least i read 2 books a day and when i start one i never stop until i finish it.today i read about self-ignition i mean how to set your self on fire by using just your mind without getting burned or hurt, it was fantastic stuff although it maybe not real but the theory it self is charming.and the other was about mind control and that what i liked the most i mean wouldn't it be great to mind control someone and let him/her do what ever you want. i found reading can be very entertaining and don't say Book Worm,because books and reading that what got us in here now i mean this advanced.

I normally read every night before I go to sleep, unless I have been very busy and am just too exhausted to keep my eyes open. If the book is really interesting, I will finish it in a day or two, but if it is one that is just okay, it takes a bit longer because it is easier to put down. I generally begin a new book about every three days.

I read all the time. When I run out of books I just go and get more from the library. What kind of books do you like? I am reading Dan Browns new book, The Lost Symbol. His book Deception Point was really good. I read that in two days. I could not put it down. The Lost Symbol sucks you in pretty quick too. He is one of my favorite authors.

Hi Apple, I did not read a book for a long time after I graduated from college. During my campus time, I go to library daily to absorb the knowlege. Now it seems that there are a lot of channels to require the news or knowlege saying the internet, the TV. I am lazy now. In fact, reading books is better than watching TV for some novels as reading is an active process that watching TV can not compete. Happy mylotting.

All of the time, I have probably read 8 or 10 books this year. the variety in reading material that is available is incredible. I don't understand how people can not find something that interests them.

I used to read books constantly, but when I went to college and was required to read books, I ended up reading very little for pleasure. After college, I worked in a bookstore and read constantly. I mean, book after book after book. Now that I'm job searching and using the computer on a regular basis I hardly read at all. Actually I'm starting to miss picking up a good book before bedtime.

i usually read about 15 books every 2 - 3 weeks. that is how often i go to the library to check out the books. i read every single day, all hours whenever i have a free moment. right now i have almosted finished a book called HALO based on the video game. i love those kind of books because they give some background on the video games. i also am reading wicked, the book about the life of the wicked witch from the wizard of oz. i read about 2 or 3 books at a time, so i have another 2 books on the go at present. i alternate them.

I've been a big reader since I was little. I usually read about one book a week. I read on the train/bus on my way to work and back home. I've also been writing quite a bit.

Well, I haven't got much time to read but the last book that I've read was a German book, calles "Jakob, der L├╝gner"- which means "Jakob, the liar". It's interessting- it's about the Second World War and a man who lies that he has a radio in his home, tells the other a good news, that he never heard.

I always have one or two books on the go as I love to read. I get through about 5 or 6 books a month I have always enjoying reading. It is one of my favourite past times.

I love reading. The problem is that during the university semester I am really tied up. I make some time late night to read a chapter or two when I have the chance. Sometimes, or kind of often actually, the late nights of reading become early mornings when I am reading a good book. I just get so into the story that I lose track of the time.

I love to read, and try to read one every month. Unfortunately, when I do, it completely consumes me, and I get no work down. Therefore it is only when I have caught up with what I have to do, do I actually read a book

I read a book at least four times a week. Right now I'm reading ten books at a time. I currently reading Ralph Ellison's INVISIBLE MAN, Christopher Paolini's ELDEST, Diane Setterfield's THE THIRTEENTH TALE, Plato's REPUBLIC, and a few other books as well. I like to read a lot of books at once, because it's good exercise for my brain, and helps keep the mind in check by keeping it active. Reading is one of my top two passions. I especially love the classics, although I will read some current authors if there is substance in their writing.
