This week's Booking Through Thursday question:

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.


  1. I think some people would just like to watch instead of read. I've a couple of friends who are DVD obsessed too, and in all the years I have known them, I have not seen them read a book.

  3. You're very lucky to have so many people IRL to talk about books.

  4. Speaking of DVD obsessed, my family are!!! They're nuts about DVDs and their collection wins hands down... So much for time for books. LOL.

  5. I admit that I am both book and DVD obsessed. By far though, the books win out!
