When was the last time you read a book?

I used to read all the time when I was younger, as well. I was a real bookworm! I might still read more if it weren't for the internet. I spend so much time on here that I really don't find the time to read much nowadays. The last book that I read was in December. I had a really good friend give me some books for Christmas, books that I wanted that weren't available at the library (which is usually where I would go) that were from the Dr. Who Adventures series. She sent me three books, and I loved them all. They may have been almost the all three books that I read all year, but I could barely stop reading once I got started! I really do miss reading more. Maybe I'll do better this year and read more than three books! *laugh*

do you mean the ones based on the recent series (Christopher Ecclestone/David Tennent) or the 90's New Adventures published by Virgin? I was really into those books at the time - the whole mythology, and the way they were taking things much further than the tv series ever did.

I used to read alot but I've been reading magazines more than books for sometime now but I've just moved house and need to clear some shelf space so am gettign reaquainted with my collection. last books I read all the way through were Redemeption Song - The Definitive Biography of Joe Strummer by chris Salewicz (I'm been dipping in and out, re-reading parts today as there's so much information, so many events covered, not somethign you can really read quickly. I've also been re-reading Vision of a Homeland by Anthony Davie, it's the story of Joe's last group The Mescaleros by a fan who got invited to join them on several of their tours and ended up running their offical website. It's a mix of interviews with the various band members and some of the crew, and his memories. Interesting to see how some of the same incidents are told/interpreted differently between the two books and there's several events that are only in one book and missing from the other. Some of the band have changed their stories a bit since being interviewed for that book. books that I'm sort of reading at the moment - Chronicles vol.1 by Bob Dylan - very good writing, reads like a conversation, somehow reconisably his style but with out the deliberete surealistic obscureness. Reasons to be Cheefull by Mark Steel - "from Punk to New Labour through the eyes odf a dediccated trouble maker" a mix of British left wing social history and autobiography, funny and serious and ultimatly inspirational.

I used to read a lot before the internet, now I hardly finish a book in a month :( Anyway I'm still hanging on to it, I get some time to read every 2 or 3 days while I used to finish a book every 2 or 3 days. Work, internet and TV are eating up all of my time.
