I've read over 60 books this year. The most recent was The Madonna of Bolton by Matt Cain.

I've only read two novels cover to cover in my entire life: Hulk Hogan's WWE autobiography and one of the Animorphs books. Sitting still and getting involved in reading requires a patience and discipline I just don't have.

Autiobiographies aren't novels :fyi:

I'm reading all the time, I don't think there's been any time since my childhood when I've not had something on the go.

I used to read like a madman but recently due to a variety of personal reasons I have stopped doing it regularly, the last book I read was "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" back in September, beautiful book I definitely reccomend it.

Damn it, and I just corrected myself to say novel instead of book in the first instance. Not my finest posting moment.

Novels are fiction.

Good grief, I've written four times as many books as you've read. That's sad.

A while ago, i sacrifice the time i would spend reading for doing drawing and practising art, which is just as a valuable use of time

Really been enjoying Brandon Sanderson's fantasy novels recently, read the Mistborn Trilogy and all of the current Stormlight novels this year, which is quite a lot for me since I don't read often. Been delving into some philosophy on the side, about to delve into some of J.S Mill's essays when i've some free time from A levels. I'm interested to know what others have been reading, any suggestions?

worrying how many people seem to be so proud of general ignorance. Aside from all the good educational benefits reading can have, it is tremendous for lowering stress and anxiety levels, and increasing empathy.

Rather spend 2hrs watching the movie than days reading the book, my time is precious to me.

Not everyone enjoys the same thing. People shouldnt be looked down on not for reading, there are loads of other things that lower stress and anxiety etc like exercise. People dont have unlimited time to do all these things so they pick the ones they enjoy. For me that is art.

The written word isn't a very useful way of delivering information to me. I don't mind little stints of reading on forums, but as mentioned above reading weighty texts is a true challenge in itself: the sitting still, the handling of the book, the smell and feel of paper, the unholy levels of focus required to have any degree of comprehension, etc. It's just not worth the ordeal to me. On the other hand, I have no problem with the spoken word and can quite happily listen to audiobooks, interviews, and lengthy radio shows.

Not gonna wash man. I'm dyslexic and still read a lot and write novels for a living. If it's not to your taste, say it's not to your taste, but don't make pathetic excuses.
