Reading makes a full man. Francis Bakon Reading is to the mind what exercises to the body. Richard Steele All books are divisible into two classes: the book of hour and the book of all time.

To read or not to read - that is the question)) I wonder how many people here like reading books..what genres d'you prefer?? what's the latest book you read and liked/disliked?? do you read books in English?? Bizarra 22 Hi! I don't like to read, except some books on psychology, especially about relation ships between man and woman :). So, my last book was about it. I don't want to tell you the title :). It's too personal :). In English I read Tolkien The Lord of the rings. It's hard to read, but I liked it a lot. And what about you? Libran, 21 For me this question is quite clear - definitely to read. Reading broadens your horizons, so the more your read, the more doors you can open. Of course I'm talking about the doors of creative thinking, of a new concepts and perspectives in your life. Life is a constant process of getting something new and if you don't get it a long period of time, your life becomes an empty automatic reflex. Reading books is a way to find that doors which are still closed for you. It's not the only but proven way to do this, that's why it'll never die. Blink, 20
I like reading. But I can't say what genre is my favourite, it mostly depends on my mood)). So last I've read are by Fauls and Gavalda. It was a real pleasure to read them. And in English I read Nice work by D.Lodge now. It's so interesting and funny!!! Funnyghost Well, I like books. I like reading books in original... In my spare time I like translating articles from magazines, and what I see in russian translations of books - sometimes the translation is so awful) so I prefer to read in English. Leon,17 To read or not to read?.. Certainly, to read! I am reading now "Three Dumas" by Андре Моруа. But this is not the main matter. The matter is that my 11 years old granddaughter likes reading very much, though she is not against the PC. This honey girl has read Mark Twain, Arkady Gaidar, Vitaly Bianky and many other books. We (grandparents) are very pleased of that. Poseidon, 63
To read or not to read? 1. Books can tell us a lot of about life's of famous people, latest news and so on. 2. Books help to learn about all in the world and solve life problems. and solve life problems. 3. It is the perfect way to spend free time.
