    All the Time

    All the time. I've actually recently bought another to books to digest in due time. I've finished one already and am well over half way in the other. I shall probably finish it by tomorrow, depending on whether I'm busy or not.

    I'll Read Anything

    I read everything from books on ancient China to comic books.  I read every night before I go to bed.  I dislike movies based on books because it destroys my perception on every character.  It's very disheartening.

    Poem By Auden

    Just a poem i like.. enjoy :) All I have is a voice To undo the folded lie, The romantic lie in the brain Of the sensual man-in-the-street And the lie of Authority Whose buildings grope the sky: There is no such thing as the State And no one exists alone; Hunger allows no choice...

    When I Get Time

    It's hard to find time to read with things like TV and the internet to distract me, but I like to do it, so I try to make a little time to read each day, maybe just half an hour here or there. It's fun, and it helps me keep my spelling and vocabulary reasonable.
