I have a reading addiction.

I have developed a very bad addiction. When I was a kid in school, I hated to read. Now I just can't seem to get enough of my favorite authors. I'm averaging close to 40 novels a year. I love to read! I find it relaxes me. I like mysteries and crime dramas. I read Jonathan and Faye Kellerman, Janet Evanovich, Sue Grafton, James Patterson, Catherine Coulter, and the list goes on and on and on. I read roughly 900 words per minute now, having had to take a speed reading class as a teenager as part of our required courses at the school I attended. I would love to become a writer like my favorites, but for now, I'll stick to reading theirs, and learning. Is anyone out there who reads many books a year?

I read several books a day. I never took a course, but I read pretty fast. I'd love to write a book, but I don't have any writing talent at all.

Reading addiction is a good hobby. I like people who like reading. Nobody can take away your knowledge. Keep on this addiction:)
