I have a book going all the time and don't mind reading the same one multiple times. Luckily, I have been able to afford to support my habit of buying books. I know I could use the library, and I have a library card, but I'm one of the worlds worst about turning things in when they're due.
I read all kinds of books but tend to shy away from autobiographies. Don't know why, other than they just don't grab me.
I enjoy the anticipation of reaching the end of a story, therefore, I don't get people who read the last chapter first. To me, that's like opening your presents before Christmas.
My niece & nephews, and my children when they were young, can always count on me to give them books as gifts. What greater gift than to expand young minds and hope a seed is planted?
I have no shame at being lost in space for lengthy periods of time while I devour another good story.
