Are you reading books? Some of the good times when i am on a journey are passed when i take to reading intersting books recently purchased from the local book store or the pavement sellers who have the hottest selling books on date. Whats your take on reading books when spare time is there?

I am a book fanatic. I always read books. I started reading books when I was still young. Of course, during that time I am reading story books but now when I get older I love reading all sorts of books especially if it has a thriller genre just like the Twilight Saga!

when you have some time it could be visiting nearest library to get the best books and works. I must tell you that i love to read books, thrillers, romantics novels and fictions, but works of some are terrible. Some times i get to books from stalls and down market secondhand ones.

I used to read books bought from bookstores,but now I only read books I downloaded to my phone. I now read articles online more than reading books.

I think there aren't much difference in ebooks and reguap books.I prefer ebooks because they are cheaper than regular books,and sometimes there are sites that offer free download of some good books:)

I can't imagine my life without reading. I think I'm addicted to books. Also it's great way to unwind and escaping into other world. Lately I find difficult to have some free time for reading and that's make me unhappy but I try do my best.

I love some horror stories and I just adore Anne Rice's books. She is just great. Lately I discovered some books of Kresley Cole and I can say that she is excellent writer.

I really enjoy reading in my spare time. It's something that I've enjoyed doing ever since I was a kid. It's a great way to pass the time.

I used to love reading books, now I have just kinda put it off. I'm going to get a library card, and get books. It's something that I used to enjoy doing, but I have just kinda put it off. I can;t think of any books other than children's books that I have read to my daughter that I have been reading lately.

hi dhawanbm, I absolutely love reading even when I was still a kid. I love it when my mom read to me stories. When I learned how to read, I started to ask my mom to buy me many books. Actually, I do not feel bored because I love the companions of books. It gives me knowledge and makes me smart. I also do what you are doing when you are in a bookstore. I usually look for a book sale and look for good novels to read. I always have a book with me whenever I have to wait for someone in a particular place or I have to travel.

I like to reading books! Every summer I go to Smolyan, Bulgaria to my grandparents. There not have an Internet and I reading a books. Summer 2010 I read Harry Potter series. They are fantastic! This Summer I read Percy Jackson and Twilight. They are so interesting, too. I love to read but I read books only if I'm in Smolyan. When I'm home I don't read because I surf in the Internet all day.

Hi sanddo you seem to be fond of your grand parentes who are there for you as usual for holidays. You might be spending some very good time with them. Its all the affection you get its really too good. Reading books of course is one of the best hobbies and its simply best thing happening. Fantastic indeed when alone and no body to disturb.

I read books... almost everyday. I read different books with different genres, it depends on my mood. So I don't open only one book until I'm finished with it. I open about... 6 books or more and read them at different intervals. hahaha, the most interesting book among them is always the first one that I will finish reading. I read before I go to sleep... when the book I'm reading is exciting, I sleep late or until my eyes close

hi dear you seem to be avid reader and like to read some of the best collection you got in home. Is that true you got so many books you bought out from stores. As you are addicted to reading books, could you share what are your fav books and you read most of the time?

I miss reading so much. Reading used to take up most of my free time at home and in the office. If I have a particularly interesting book, I even take it to the office for reading during breaktime. Whenever I have extra money on hand, it most goes to books rather than on any other item. With the online jobs occupying most of my time nowadays,I have hardly read a book in the last few months. Much that I want to read, my eyes are already too tired from staring at the computer monitor all day long. There were times in the past when I used my books as solace in times of stress and disappointments. When I become engrossed with reading, I tend to forget all the problems and trials that are troubling my mind. Since English is not my first language, books have helped me in improving my vocabulary and grammar.

I go to the library about once a week to get books. This last trip I got 5 novels, and read one a night. I don't buy books, unless it's a reference book, or something I know I'm going to read more than once. When I do buy books, I usually check out our local second-hand book store, especially since I'm on a very, very, limited budget. For books for gifts though, I do buy new editions. While reading the hottest books are great, I usually put them on the wait list at the library. I love to read!

me too have been to library for some time now. I cant have some time for visiting it now. But now i tend to take books off the second hand book stores on the corners of streets which make my faboulous collection for reading.
