FMM: Bookworms (Revisited)

  1. How often do you read for pleasure?  I try to read on my breaks and at lunch during the week.  On the weekends, I usually end up having a nice hot bubble bath each day and soaking for an hour with a good book.
  2. Are you currently reading a book? If so, which one?  I just finished The Devil's Rooming House and am about to start The Coke Machine (I loves me some nonfiction).
  3. Do you subscribe to any magazines and/or newspapers? If so, which ones?  No, although last year I subscribed to Shape.
  4. Do you prefer reading traditional books or using an e-reader?  I've never tried an e-reader but my eyes have enough trouble staring at a regular computer screen so much already.  I love the feel of the paper in my fingers.
  5. How often do you go to the bookstore?  About once or twice a month but usually to just look around. I try to watch my pennies and get most of books (and dvd's) from my local library.
  6. Do you read at the gym? Back when I first went to the gym when I was in university, I'd read a magazine on the recumbent bike.  Now, I stick to my treadmill at home and watch TV or walk outside and might listen to music.
  7. Have you ever been a member of a book club?  No but I'd like to.  However, its hard to find one that likes nonfiction as much as I do or wants to focus just on the classics.
  8. Do you wear glasses when you read? I have to read glasses all the time so ... yes. :)
  9. Has anyone read the Hunger Games?  I haven't but probably will one of these days.  I'm usually late to these sorts of trends.
  10. What is your favorite thing about reading?  I find it very relaxing and love the feeling of learning while enjoying myself.  Plus its great to escape into a completely different world if even for only an hour or so.

Now it’s your turn!  Happy Monday!

Came by from FMM. That sounds like exactly the kind of book club I'd enjoy! I've been in one for a long time, and there are only a few people who regularly pick books I enjoy, but the company I find makes up for all the other lack-luster books we read. But I'd love a non-fiction/classics one!

I had to giggle at your "Who's That Girl" section about taking over the world - FUNNY!

Stopping in from FMM - hi!
