Yes.
Usually 6-8 books a week.

Did your parents read out books for you at childhood age?
Yes from the time that I was a baby.

Do you think that printed books are outdated today?
No.
I always enjoy seeing novelty books, recipe books, hardbacks and brightly coloured picture books for children.
I like ebooks and some audio books too.

Sometimes

Did your parents read out books for you at childhood age?
My mama did.

Do you think that printed books are outdated today?

It is becoming outdated. Podcasts are now the popular media. Some popular ones are Joe Rogan, PDB Podcast, Fresh and Fit, Gary Neville Podcast etc.
Do you read a book at least once a week?
Not necessarily a full novel every week, but I read something every day.

Did your parents read out books for you at childhood age?
Yep, both of my parents did, although my mum did it more often. She's the real bookworm in our family.

Do you think that printed books are outdated today?
They're certainly becoming outdated gradually, with e-books being so common and simple to pick up these days, but I think print has still got some way to go before it disappears completely. There's still plenty of bookworms like myself who prefer printed works.

Reading something is a good description that suits to me. My mother and grandmother read out for me, although they were never bookworms.

Did your mama read out fairy tales for you too?

Looks like that another people have had a childhood. I feel pity for the children who had no parents to read out tales.

Depends on time, but I try to & I'd say I probably average about 1 a week.

No. I've got a number of ebooks saved on my phone & tablet, but sometimes it's nice to have an actual physical copy
