How often do you read a book?

Several months ago, I applied for a library card. Then, I just borrowed twice. For the keeping time of books is only 2 weeks and I have to return the books within it, I just give up borrowing the paper books anymore. I do my reading slowly. So the hundreds of pages' books couldn't be finished within the stated period. Moreover, I don't have much time to do reading daily. Thus I start to buy new books or read the E-books. Now, the library card just be laid aside and covered with dust. It is a waste. For the library is full of books I want. Maybe I will start to borrow books there when I find some books less pages and suitable for me.

I like to read some novels, so the books would be a better choice.

Usually your library will re new your book so you can keep it a long time as long as no one else wants it.... I listen to books on CD's while I paint. I have very little time to read a but but I love being read to.

It can sometimes be hard to find time to read. I don't always have the time to finish the book. I love reading books. Always have.

I buy books at the charity shop here, for less than $1, because I dislike having to return books to the library. I read every day.

I love the library. We go often and can recheck our books if we don't read them in two weeks. You can find small books if you like. Good books don't have to be long.

I love the library too. But it's a little bit far for me. It's 4-5 bus stops from my home.

I only have time to read if I like the book. For now, I've been reading Paulo Coelho's Adultery.

I can use my library card for books or e-books, music and movies for free. I can renew a library book online up to five times and we have it for 3 weeks each time so plenty time to finish a book

This year, I have read two novels- one was quite big- almost 600 pages by Robert Ludlum and another one is "Murder on the Orient Express" (Poirot-Agatha Christie). And perhaps I will start one more by the year end.

I use the library a lot. I just keep renewing the books until I finish them. I read only a little each day.

I prefer to reading on phone than books, because I read before sleeping and reading a book while in bed just hurts my neck and damages my eyes because its dark, that's why I prefer EPUB or PDF stories because its easier to position the phone and I don't have to worry about the darkness. It also helps me sleep faster because of the light of the phone.
