Happy January, Guaili!
I agree..it is unfortuanate that people are not reading anymore. A book provides a more stimulating source of creativity and imagination for the human mind. In my opinion, watching television and surfing the internet is fine, as long as one doesn't become "glued" to either one!
I love to read! If you don't find me here typing away on PR.com, I'm reading a book. As far as reading interests, I'm pretty versatile regarding subject matter- one day I'll be reading "The Path to Tranquility" and several days later, be glued to "The Cobra Event". Reading is definitely an important and invaluable tool!
