    Sometimes I read to much.

    I hate how the television has taken over

    so many lives. I much prefer to curl up with a good book. I feel reading stirs the imagination much more than tv. I also enjoy the solitude and inner reflection that comes from reading.

    I'm currently reading Fifty Shades of Grey.

    I never planned on reading it, but I had a male friend tell me it was a decent read and a cute story. Half way through the first book I have to agree so far it's cute and not really what I expected. For right now it's something to read and at least I'll know what the other...

    I read lots and try to read

    for at least an hour a day. I especially like reading books about those in the medical professions and books written by people with mental health problems who are in recovery. I like fiction too and have recently started reading some thrillers.

    I'm reading Dracula by beam stoker

    for an extension class, we're doing a genre study (gothic), and I love it. We also read a couple of chapters from Dr Jeckle and Mr Hide and I think I found my favourite book.

    I Especially Adore Audiobooks.

    Chores go faster! Hands-free! Classics and physics and metaphysics... it is a smorgasbord, a cornucopia of wealth. Amazing variety of experiences in autobiographies, amazing amount of speculation in biographies. Spectacular variety in religions. Love it!

    I recently got to finishing a book I had

    for a long time. Dumbing Us Down by John Taylor Gatto. The book is a summary of author's observations on the education system in the USA. As a teacher with years of practise he also tries to find an alternative to it and push forward ideas buried for hundreds of years.

    Reading is my favorite thing to do.

    I like real books not just reading on my ipad. My favorite books used to be Harry Potter but Im getting more into Divergent series now. Reading allows me to escape everything sometime. I can get into another world and not have to worry about everything else.
