    I bought a book on Indian Runners a while ago...I read it from cover to cover on one weekend... My daughter has bought me two books since then...And I hardly got past the first page of either... I love reading...But just get time anymore it seems.. I used to read at night...but it ended up keeping me awake too- so I had to stop.

    GOOD for YOU!! I knew that would happen........ see what you've been missing!

    Do take little breaks or look up and away from to book and focus on something in the distance for a sec while you're reading.... stareing at a book closely for too long will make your eyes feel buggy, well, cause eye strain anyway, and could give you a headache.

    Quote:Good luck with the book readings, by the time I was 18, I had read over 5000 books---All the Tarzan series, Doc Savage, Danny Dunn, Tom Corbett, and any Sci-fi I could find. This was in B.C. of course (Before Computers) I have since discovered E-books and spent my rainy days reading, if the Sun is shining, I'm in my Garden or messing with the Chickens avoiding the "Honey-Dew" list. After you read the Twilight series, go for the Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton, it will make your Twilight look like a preschool primer series.

    Good for you! [​IMG] It sounds like you're definitely a reader; your trouble was just finding the *right books* to get you into reading. I hope that after you finish the Twilight series, you'll continue to read by looking for other books you might like.

    I am so sorry. It started out that way for me too. I was in jr high and started reading Louis L'Amour. Mom gave me "Last of the Breed" and I was hooked. Haven't stopped since.

    The good news is reading makes you smart. The bad news is, it makes you poor. In the past, I have budgeted $100 per month, for new books.

    Stupid Harry potter!

    I was angry when Michael Crichton died. It opened up a whole new hole in my reading list that needs to be filled with a new author, who will probably have written a million other books that I'll have to buy and read. DRAT! Thank goodness, if I start reading the Twilight series, there are only a few books. I can afford that and, like any addict....

    "I don't have a reading problem, I can quit anytime I want."

    Edit: Nope, it was Edgar Rice Burroughs "Martian Chronicles" that led me down this road. They are a gateway drug to harder reading.

    JUST SAY NO!!!!
