How often do you read? Is reading very important to you.

Its been a month or two for the people who renumber me, but as for the question, I read mostly on weekends, and sometimes  at night.:smileytongue:

reading is very important to me, because its a good way of learning, and it also helps you look at the world a different way.

I read daily, i always have my nose in a book. Reading was a distraction for me at first then a habit and now a necessity. I would die if i did not have a book at my disposal.

Re: How often do you read? Is reading very important to you.

ok so here goes...

i used to read(last year and the year before that...8 and 9 grade)every day, all day...id read on the bus, id read in like every mod when there was time and during lunch sometimes...then id come home and read from the time i got home till my bedtime which was ten, with a break for the usual stuff...i even had a booklight for when it got dark or something(and still have it)...now, since its volleyball season, the only sport i play, ive only read 3 books since school started, and that was a month ago, compared to a book a day...so after the seasons over i got a list of over a hundred book i want to read so...yeah

obviously reading is important...i like to read educational books...but like 95 percent of my books are romance..so yeah,

i started readin heavy duty in the 6/7 grade with lurlene mcdaniel...it got to the point when i didnt want to put a book down, just one more chapter/page, etc. so yeah...in seventh grade toward the summer like may and april when i didnt have homework i read books in an evening...

i know i sound like a geek..but thats how it is...

now im trying to get a little life in my life instead of just reading it away...

i read like 82 books this summer

so thats how my cookie crumblers...

Re: How often do you read? Is reading very important to you.

wow ya thats impressive. i love to read, its important to me although i've never read that many books in one summer. i would like to though lol. In the summer i read a lot more, but during the school year its mostly on weekends cuz im always doing homework or at dance during the week, and then i just want to go to bed lol.  But i like reading just because its fun to me, and I definately believe it just generally makes you smarter.

Re: How often do you read? Is reading very important to you.

Reading has always been important to me, and I just recently started getting really into it again. Instead of spending my free time browsing the internet aimlessly, I spent most of it reading this week. I guess that the books were so good they just sucked me in.

Re: How often do you read? Is reading very important to you.

I LOVE to read!

:smileyhappy:

It's so important to me that I read!

 

But.....

 

Since I started high school (for some reason I LOVE being a freshman!) it's like I have no time left to read!

It makes me soooo sad!

I come home-tired-have to do my homework work, than I sleep.....I'm to tired to read!

And I hate it!

*Sigh*

Re: How often do you read? Is reading very important to you.

I read everyday, with a few exceptions. Although with all the work I have now, I'm only reading small portions so it takes me forever to finish a book. My family and I went on vacation this weekend and my favorite part was the road trip because I got several hours where I could just read and not have to worry about anything else but the best part is I was actually able to finish a book! Yippeee!
