There was a widely bruited-about statistic reported last week, stating that 1 in 4 Americans did not read a single book last year. Clearly, we don’t fall into that category, but . . . how many of our friends do? Do you have friends/family who read as much as you do? Or are you the only person you know who has a serious reading habit?
I am lucky in that I am surrounded by a number of readers. The girl I sit next to and I have regular book chats, and there is at least one person at work who comes to have a look at my blog to see what I have been reading if we haven't talked books for a while. My sister likes to read, but she finds it much harder work than I do. Having said that, there are at least two people at work who haven't read a book in the 3 or 4 years that I have known them. We have agreed to disagree, because at least one of those is completely DVD obsessed, whilst I am not!
BTW....I've posted a review over at Historical Tapestry, this time for The Tilecutter's Penny by Caiseal Mor.
