I never find friends from NC that read. Am I the only reader? Tell me, what do you read? Are you reading now? Talk to me!

I love to read I just don't have a lot of time for it anymore.  I did read the Fifty Shades series over the summer and I just downloaded a lot of free Kindle books to read when I find the time.  I like Steven King, Mary Higgins Clark, Nicholas Sparks, and many more.

I love to read. I usually read 3 books a week. This pregnancy is kicking my butt, and I haven't really been up to it.

I take it in spurts. I have to be able to focus only on the book, and well.....I have 3 kids of my own, my brother's two kids, and the Internet to distract me.

I love reading!
Love it so much. Edward mckays is where I get my books otherwise I would spend way too much on them. Lol.

I read too quickly and so it saves me $$ and I buy more books for less.

I buy far too many books too although I get a lot for free :D Also a fast reader. I did an online reading test recently and this was my results



You read 864 words per minute.
That makes you 246% faster than the national average. All quiz anwers correct

YES!! Reading and napping are my favorite hobbies. I have read as many as 2 books in one day, and I was reading about 12 a month for awhile. I slowed down when I started back to school and was getting only 3-4 a week on my breaks.

I start back to school tomorrow, so I will probably be stuck reading nothing but textbooks again until May. I am going to try to get at least the first Crossfire novel read tonight, and then maybe the second one in tomorrow since the first day is usually just intro's and syllabus quizzes.

Let's just say that I love my Kindle Fire ... I have over 400 books on there and usually read 3-4 at a time. Currently just have one book open but that's b/c I have been addicted to a new game on there.
