I am currently reading Judge and Jury by James Patterson. I also just bought Da Vinci Code so I will be busy for a few weeks. I read daily for at least one hour.

I read anything that doesn't move fast enough to get out of sight.

I have about 4500 books in storage (all read, mostly paperback, mostly science-fiction), and about a thousand more to be read, stacked in boxes against my bedroom wall.

I don't read as much as I used to or as much as I'd like. Working for the library services I am surrounded by books each day and have a pile to get throughh at home.

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on the Da Vinci Code...I have heard some mixed reports about it.

weeeell, his writing is a wee bit stilted and smells of romance novels. the plot also would be at home in the romance novel genre and one has to forgive a few impossible stunts a la 007. on the whole it's fun. i read the version with photographs and that made quite the difference for me.

the prequel, "angels and demons" is more fun.

I read anything and everything, it's my greatest addiction.

I'm not reading as much as I used to. As an only child, I've had a love affair with books since I could hold one. I used to hoard my books, but now I keep only selected ones that I think I may read again. We have a wonderful store here called the Book Dispensary where you can get store credits for bringing in your old books and get some you haven't read. I think the last time I went in, I had about $90. worth of credits. It's a great way to recycle!!
