Kara IM'd me today and mentioned that she has been reading like a fiend. Diana does so in spurts as well, and my parents were always reading when I was a kid. Somehow that didn't rub off on me, and it bothers me.
It's not that I don't have anything to read either. I bought the Potter books and only read the first one, even though I have them all. I have non-fiction sitting around like In Defense of Food and Tribes. I even have the composite Watchmen sitting here.
I do "read" a great many technical books as related to my profession, but I wouldn't characterize that as pleasure reading (even if I do enjoy the learning). And I wrote a book once too.
Like everything else I want to do or feel like I should do, I need to make the time and do it. I have time, I just don't use it well. I wonder if my wiring isn't quite right. I sure seem to have a hard time committing to doing anything regularly.
