I'm a reader. Not a heavy reader - but I'm usually reading a book slowly. Right now I'm reading "The Deniers" ... it's titled after what Al Gore calls people who don't believe the global warming hype. It's by Lawrence Solomon, a scientists who doesn't feel the science of global warming is settled.

My favorite is "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" ... I've re-read it 3 times.

I'm not really a book reader, just newspaper and a magazine once in awhile.

Yeah, I may not read as often as I should. But every day theres the daily work logs at work. The pricing menu. special order lighting. My schedule, as our schedules sometimes change from day to day. And of course, the forums Im involved in.
As far as the animal crackers....I just bought a pkg last night from the vending machine at work and they were yummie!

Are you a "reader" ? yes I am

Bonus question: Do you ever "reread" your favorites ? Yes i do, I just started rereading one.


Because I can't be the only one who does this, extra credit ?

If the book is part of a "series" or follows a certain character,do you have to read them in "order" yes


Animal cracker day...Yum

Over and over again.

Yes, I like to read them in order.
Sometimes, like Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, or Mary Stewart's Aruthurian series, I discovered it back when the very first one came out, so going in order happened naturally.
But other series, such as George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, I discovered quite late in the game, so I had to buy up all the paperbacks, figure out the correct order, and get caught up with the story (which is enthralling.)

Are you a "reader" ?
yes indeed, I'll read anything.

Bonus question: Do you ever "reread" your favorites ?
absolutely, til they're in shreds, then buy a new copy. I like different editions, too.

Because I can't be the only one who does this, extra credit ?

If the book is part of a "series" or follows a certain character,do you have to read them in "order" ?
no. It's also interesting to jump around through a writer's development over time

Are you a "reader" ?
I love books. No better store than a book store. Always have at least one I'm in the middle of. However, I must admit it is rare for me to every get to the end of a book.

Sometimes, but rarely.

Definately. It just isn't rational to start a series anywhere than at the beginning.
