    NO!!

    I never, NEVER do that. It spoils the entire book. I didn't learn that way and I'm too old to start now. Anyone who does that to a good book either doesn't REALLY like to read or is lazy. And I have read HUNDREDS in my lifetime. A

    When I'm alone and bored at home I'm usually horny too, so put my hand in my pants and touch myself. This normally turns into a wanking session after too long.
