I have to be ini the mood to read books and this comes and goes for me.
At the moment I have not read for about 8 months, since I started doing voluntary work.
I have now stopped the voluntary work however cannot seem to get back into reading for some reason. I have about 30 books waiting to be read and do not use a Kindle or the like.
But not enough time these days, far too many things to get done.
When they are done, I like to go on the computer,and do this.
Soooooo maybe I should spend a little more time reading, than working.! :)
Who doesn't enjoy reading books? If I go to someones house and they did have a heaving book shelf I would be very suspicious of them.
I love mostly fantasy, Sci- fi fantacy and comical fantasy, transgressional fiction (wikapedia words not mine) and alternative history. I read on average one book week. Anyone who says they do not have enough time to read books needs to get their faces our of the ipad and into a book
i often think if i visit house without any books (or see them on real estate mags.) that the owners could be people without imagination or an inquisitive mind. Don't mean those 'matching' books that some people have, and some are just covers without books - just to give an impression.
I'm a great believer that all children should be read stories from a very early age,it gives them a great imagination, and they soon become familiar with words..... just like mine did.
I love books, I even like the smell of them. The only problem though is that when I read a book I don't want to put it down until I finish it. Also I try reading in bed but I go straight to sleep within two pages! I like a range of genres and am interested in contemporary issues
I love books - have done since I was a small child. Was encouraged to read by my mother who also loved books.
We, in turn, instilled this love in our son who is rarely without a book in his hand - be it a text book, graphic novel or sci-fi.
Can't understand people who say they don't read. What a world they are missing!
My genre is mainly crime or thrillers - have gone through most of the other genres in the past but prefer crime dramas.
