I love to read and write it is so fun for me and keeps myself from being a [email protected]# to people. It really calms me down.

I don't know how many books in total I've read this year, but I guessed "Greater Than 20".

Less than 20 books.

I dislike reading. I actually rather read reference material and the several message boards I access each and every day.

One good book is easily worth 20 bad ones.

Reading without understanding might aswell be staring at the sun.

So what ur saying is that reading a bad book is like reading 20 bad ones. well that makes sense because if the book is really bad than wahts the use of readimg it. :P Somtimes I dont understand some of the books i read so i reread it and then i get the point or i understand the book.

no I ment that reading one GOOD book is like reading 20 BAD ones, not all books are made equal.

I usually read at least 15 books a month (sometimes more)- I love to read, but have found that when I'm depressed its hard to concentrate enough to read so that has reduced how much I read.
