OK, I'm going to start doing this meme each week. Booking Through Thursday posts a book related question and bloggers reply on their blogs and link the answer.
"There was a widely bruited-about statistic reported last week, stating that 1 in 4 Americans did not read a single book last year. Clearly, we don’t fall into that category, but . . . how many of our friends do? Do you have friends/family who read as much as you do? Or are you the only person you know who has a serious reading habit?"
I think that all of the people in my circle of friends have read at LEAST one book last year. Probably more. The one person I know who doesn't read at all is a work friend who I know watches a lot of TV instead. Family: my parents read, and I read, but my brother who used to read a lot hasn't been reading (he asked me for recommendations recently so I think I can pull him back over to the dark side), and my sister doesn't like reading either, but even she likes books - art books.
i read. obviously. i think i need to read more though. you put me to shame with your 100+ books a year. i should start to keep count. does re-reading old books count? i do that a lot.
I think you read more than you think. If you kept count you'd be surprised. I count the rereads. 🙂 I also asked if I should and Josh said I might as well, so I do.
