  • I don't even own a tv anymore. I read a lot but usually donate my books to the local library. It's a small library and state cutbacks are hurting the library budget. I prefer non-fiction but if I can find interesting fiction I'll read it. I like historical fiction, something that will make me laugh or something on a spiritual plane. I enjoy Sharon McCrumb's writings.

  • I have hundreds of books! I read all the time. The thing is, I really hate to get rid of them. I finally got rid of some. I was running out of places to put them. LOL

  • i actually just got into reading. i hated it in school and never took the time to find a book worth reading at the time. but lately it's one of my favorite things to do. i like real life drama but still fiction. i don't get much into autobiographies or memoirs. haven't read the same author twice

  • I have to loved to read since I was a child. It started with Nancy Drew and the Baby-sitters Club, and Caddy Woodlawn. Now I am in love with Nora Roberts, any paranormal series, biographies, Chick Lit, and anything else that appeals to me. Reading is my number one past time and I was worried that I was going to have to give it up when I had a child but thankfully I haven't.

  • I love to read. I'll read as many books by a favorite author as I can, and I frequently reread my faves. I hate giving up a book, so my bookshelves are packed. I read Mysteries (Agatha Christie, Dick Francis, Sue Grafton), and Sci-fi/Fantasy (like Terry Prattchet). My husband bought me a Sony Ebook Reader for Mother's day this year and I have been devouring books like crazy since then. It holds about 160 books, and the battery life lasts up to 7,500 page turns. The display won't hurt your eyes like a computer screen it is supposed to look just like paper. The cost of downloading an ebook is unfortunately just as much as buying the book. My husband has been able to find some books online though that he was able to download for free.
