I read everyday. I bring a book to work and read on my breaks and lunch period. I get two magazines, one once a week and one once a month so I read those too. I also read whatever book I'm reading, I'm a fast reader, at night and on weekends if I'm not doing anything. All in all I love to read!

Before I retired, I always had a book with me at work to read on breaks. The primary criteria when buying a purse is a book has to be able to fit in the purse comfortably. I read every chance I get.

Before I retired I took a book to work and would read during my lunch break and then I read nearly every night. Now I read even more. Retirement is wonderful.

That's how I choose purses too. I read every chance I get which isn't enough.

I read every day. I always carry a book with me, and I alternate reading three or four different books at the same time.

I read everyday. Usually after work, though I've read before work on occasion (just a couple of pages). Weekends, definitely. I haven't taken books to read on breaks, though.

Everyday. I have a Kindle and I have the Kindle app on my iPhone. If I get stuck waiting somewhere, I can sync my phone to the Kindle and pick up reading right where I left off. Love the flexibility and ease!
