Reading

Postby Doc 42 » Sat Jun 14, 2008 12:58 pm

Quick question I want to put to people on the site.

How often do you read?
Not as in "I read every full-moon! :3"
or "I read my milk cartoon in the morning! :3"
or "Read? You mean, like, the internet?"

how often do you stumble across a book, pick it up, and decide to read it. For me, maybe once every two months I randomly stumble upon some gem of a book and it completely captures me for a week or two.

I frequently pick up a book and sit down to read it. Even if it's one i've read before, i like to go back and read it to make sure i didn't miss anything.

I read every day. X3 I'm such a nerd. I read books that are at least 700 pages long to challenge my attention span.

I read...randomly, in all honesty. I don't have a set time, I just have the urge to read something, so I do, then get sick of it at some point, sometimes while in the process of reading something :P

I've been reading a bit during the summer-one thing I'll do to stay awake until everyone else is asleep is read in my room. I've read through both Aldous Huxley's Brave New World and Orwell's Animal Farm, am working on Lord of the Flies and intend to read Orwell's 1984, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, and A Clockwork Orange-probably more as the summer goes on, but that's all for now.

Anyways, the length of time I've been reading is usually in the area of 2 & 1/2 hours to 3, but it varies heavily depending on how early I want to get out of my room and how interesting the novel is.

I read a fairly disturbing book, the sinking of the Essex whaling ship from Nantucket. Some one might have heard about this *Cough*KP*cough*

Thats like saying "I eat so I don't starve"...a bit redundant :P

And Doc, your still a tard for reading the MIDDLE BOOK in the trilogy -_-

But meh, its still a good book. Day of the Dragon and War of the Ancients Trilogy are my favorite Warcraft books...Day of the Dragon was actually the last book I finished (Began re-reading JP, but didn't finish).

OMG! Almost all the time. I'm serious I could be looking for one specific book and find an even cooler one I wasn't even looking for at all! And sometimes the book just catches my eye.
