Title says it all, are you a reader ?
what kind of stuff do you read either in computer or printed ?

. do you read printed books ? which ones lately ?

. what about e-books ?

. do you follow any blogs ?

i am sure you at least read wiki sometimes, perhaps some news, comic books maybe

so how much of a reader are you ?

I like to read printed books rather than e-books.
But lately, no time to read books with school and work :(

I usually have about 3 books going at once...well, not exactly at the same time, but you know what I mean. I like science fiction, leadership, new technology, and religious.

I've actually devoted a page on my blog to all my reads. I've currently around 80 books on my list... these are the ones I can remember. But I have a lifetime goal of 500...for now. RA Salvatore (Legend of Drizzt) is my favorite author and series.

I recently bought an ebook bundle on a pay-what-you-want deal. The books are all sci-fi, nothing hugely mainstream, but worth the price.

I used to read a ton, but I feel like books are a bit expensive when I usually only read them once. Cheap ebooks might not always be up to the written standard they could be (they usually lack a strong editor) but the stories are as good as anything else out there.

I enjoyed it. Ted Nugent has a bluntness that is refreshing. Instead of tapdancing around issues, he hits them hard, and backs them up with facts.

I just finished Asimov's Robot Series, and I'm about to start LOTR (never read it before or seen the movie). I love science fiction and fantasy novels though. I also just finished The Rover series by Mel Odom, I highly recommend it to fantasy lovers.
