    I was just wondering how many books Tempers read

    This can include online books, real book and mature comics (aka not DC or Marvel stuff)

    Me myself read every day on the train to work and back home. I think I average about 5-10 books a year

    Also my holiday's are spend reading in the woods or on the beach depending on where I take my holiday

    EDIT:
    Ok I put another option there .. 15+ a year

    I did vote for daily, but I can be a bit all over the place. I try to read every day but some times this doesn't happen, and other days I'll read heaps. I would average between 3-5 books a year though

    Well my vote is for daily, but the amount most likely exceeds 50 books a year (I spent most of my days reading) which is not exactly in the poll [​IMG] .

    Daily, and my amount is around 30-35 I guess according to my library card. Not an option. Then we add all of my e-books and the ones I actually bought, and that's gonna reach a lot more. Perhaps 40-50.

    I haven't read a book in a while, what with school (that just sounds wrong), but I do read on a daily basis.

    Contradictory, much?
    I read books every day. I hate the long walk I have to take to the library. I don't go there often. That's probably why I have a $5 late fee on my account, ATM.

    If you read something at a forum it count as read, so you read all the time.

    Lack of voice acting in older games made me quite an avid reader.

    Why no 15+ option? Is it inconceivable to you that people would read that many?

    I read all the time, especially if it's a good book. I'm one of those people who won't put a book down until it's done. xD

    I don't read too many online books, just usually books I get from the library or ones I order.

    I don't read fiction at all. I did when I was a kid but now the only reading I do is when I'm researching something, which is where a fair chunk of the hours of my week go. I'm always learning something new but I don't think that counts in this poll [​IMG]

    I read 3-4 books a week. I'll read anything but mystery (too predictable lol).

    The latest good book I've read is "The Art of Racing in the Rain." Read it. Do it. It's by Garth Stein.

    I love reading a good book, even more than playing a good game. I haven't read anything in a while though, quite busy with schoolwork. I plan on buying a couple used books online in a week or so, since I can't stand reading from a computer screen. I like feeling the pages in my hand [​IMG] I'm also a quick reader, maybe too much so. When I get a hold of an awesome book, I'll risk damaging my eyes by reading it under the covers with a light. My favorite genres are sci-fi and fantasy.

    Not inconcievable.. I just didnt expect it O_O

    Before I started work full time I did about 20-30 a year depending on my holiday

    Anyway, 15+ is now included in the poll ^^



    Also.. I need a good alternative for a library since I cant actualy borrow books there anymore, my ex took about 10 books with her to Australia when she left -_-

    Maybe grammar and reading are correlated.

    German and English are the only languages I speak fluently, but most of the great German novels have been translated to English [​IMG]
