Couldn't agree more. There's heaps of crap out there - a precious few can even do you more harm than good by reading them I think. I always research a book on Amazon before I buy it - to make sure my time is invested wisely.

I'm a bookworm

I read about 6 a week and on a wide variety of topics.

Lots of business books - though my interest in these tends to come and go as it's easy to get guru overload.

Local history, fiction etc etc

I just wish they'd build computers into the back of toilet doors so that I could read e-books there.

Cheers

Pete

Well it all depends on what kind of books, i tend to read informative books of many kinds. I read in the college courses im taking as well i read 4 books a month, some i scan over but other than that i read everyday as apart of my research. I think more and more its getting easier to read online than read a book lol.

I read a lot online. I find it's necessary to keep up to date with changes on the Internet.

Other than that I read loads of books. I like lightish fiction or biographies for reading in bed. I'm a big fan of Terry Pratchett's Discworld. I enjoy reading business or text books too. I have a few bookshelves full of them from when I did my business degree.

And I've invariably got my nose in a cookbook or two for at least some time every day. I've lost count of how many cookbooks I have now. Must be getting close to 150. Very Happy But that's not really "reading" is it?

How many books in a year? A few hundred at least. We're the kind of people who buy books by the bagful.

For me it depends on my availability..I love reading books but If I'm tired from work, it's really hard for me to read a book even though it's really my favorite.... So I think I can only read 5-7 books per year...

I've just seen the program of pass out books that fall in the 'once only' field by registering them on the internet and then leaving them somewhere. Sounds like a good idea to me.

I read books for relaxation and it's not nearly as much as I would like, but one must make a living. Probably about 24 - 30 books a year. I've just finished one called "Murder on the Railways' which is a collection of short stories combining the two irresistible (to me) elements of the railway and mystery ... I couldn't put it down. And the next one on my list is Triomf, a South African book about a town that I've just completed some work on. It promises to be fantastic. I do read marketing books, but most of my business development reading is done online.

authorsbooks... it was a straightforward question but you just decided to copy and paste some text from your website instead, huh...? Rolling Eyes

Why?

Oops, Paul. I was in the middle of banning authorsbooks when you replied. Laughing

As for the "why?" - because they've no intention of joining in and contributing anything to our forum.
