12. How many hours a day would you say you read? Two or more hours.

  2. I think you may be the first person I've met (other than myself) who has read "Gone With the Wind" more than once. I usually get weird looks when I say I have.
    And yes, there'd be so much more time for reading if we didn't have to work.

  3. Too bad we all have other things to do besides read, eh? Life! Gets in the way of everything.

  4. I am almost ready to start listening to audiobooks in the car on my commute. Almost.

    I confess, I've never read GWTW.

    PS--I added you as a friend on Goodreads! :)

  5. So many of us read less because of work. Goodreads is a very nice place. It's time to use it more, me thinks. Sweet Sunday, reading day! Well, and laundry day too, if memory serves. Enjoy your Sunday. We have beautiful clouds today.

  6. I used to re-read books, and GWTW is one that I have re-read a couple of times.
