I love to read books. I read mostly fantasy/sci-fi and fantasy/romance.  I also like to read historical romance and time travel romance written by authors that do research first before they write their books.  I learn a little history and other information from the better authors.  I also feel that reading in general helps keep your mind sharp and helps you strengthen your vocabulary.  :)  I also read the newspaper sometimes to try and keep up on events in the world.  So much of it is so depression though.  I mainly just get the newspaper to receive store fliers and coupons.

I love reading books, but rarely touch a newspaper anymore.  All the news is online.

I love to read newspapers but they cost so much I can not afford them. So, I get my news from the internet and my books from the library. :)

I'm an avid book reader, I read over  (motivational, spiritual, therapeutic) books. Which i refer afterwards, to my mate. Who also read as i do.  The (news) on (paper) is  an informative leaflet. But , I veer away from it, since it depress me.

I get two different newspapers every day and go through each one and read anything I find interesting.  I also read a lot of books.  I read from a book every day.

I read books constantly, and just skim the newspaper from time to time.  I get pretty much all my news online.

    I love the internet because it is fast and easy to connect. I love to read but I do not like heavy books, boring videos and fines at the library. I have my own laptop and that is what I use because I love to read. I read the news, articles and  book summaries.

I subscribe to one of my local paper and read daily. With the popularity of ebook readers and the ease of my own Kindle I have been reading books more also.

I'm a magazine nut. I read about 10 per month because I love non-fiction. When I retire soon, I'll read books, too.
