  1. In the past I never counted, but I joined the Goodreads reading challenge late last year and again the first of this year. So far this year, I’ve read 56 towards my goal of 72. I will probably end up reading between 80 and 90 books. Yes, I am a voracious reader and have been since my first visit to a library when I was only 7.

  2. I’ve never counted, but not nearly as many as I used to. I’m working on reading more often. I just finished the newest Harry Potter play that was released as a book at the end of July, oddly enough on Harry Potter’s (and J.K. Rowling’s) birthday. 😉 The Sherlock stories that I read this year are fascinating, hoping to finish the rest of them, along with other books and short stories, including the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson.

  3. Not many, but I’m extremely selective. I started reading seriously when I bought my kindle about five years ago after having published my books on it. If I’d never bought a kindle I would still read books very rarely. Often I read several times books that I really like. With kindle it’s wonderful because one can highlight passages that one finds interesting and reread them whenever one wants to. It’s also a tiny portable library than can store thousands of books that one can take it anywhere so as it happens to me I often read my books in cafes. The main reason why I’ve never been a great reader is because I’m a doer who likes to do things and reading, while it can be very constructive and beneficial if one is selective with what one’s reads and critical as well of what one’s reads can be a passive occupation. There are people that read many books but I often wonder what they retain or what they read. For me reading without retaining is a useless occupation unless one does it in an engaging active way.

      1. any book i come across i read as long as it does not make me sleep on the 1st page…from inspirational, fiction,autobiographies,paranormal,fantansy, comedy etc
