"Specific reading"

why do you think people read? People read to gain a vast imagination,it also builds your vocabulary and help you with verbal communication.

what do you do in your free time? I read books,listen to music,chat with friends or go shopping.

what kind of books do u like to read? novels/newspapers/articles or magazines?why? Magazines! To get the latest buzz on my favorite actors.

what kind of genre do u like? why? i'm a genre hopper.I read little bit of everything...sci-fi,fantasy,historical fiction,paranormal romances and occasionally True crimes

why do you spend more time in that particular activity rather than books?I'm sorry which activity are you on about?I'm confused

approximately how many hours do you spend near books? If I find a book interesting I can spend all day with it. Sometimes I carry it around whilst i'm eating or even when I'm going for classes.Its always with me until I read the epilogue.

any specific author/reporter u have always liked/inspired of? Agatha Cristie I absolutely love her mysteries. Stephanie Meyer is my recent favorite.

do you go to libraries? if so why? and how many hours do u spend there/ if not why? I dont go to libraries at all, I rather prefer buying the books I like and read them at home. For some reason i cannot read books without the music and libraries dont have music facilities..its always quiet and boring.

Do you think observing is better than reading? Maybe no..umm like someone said both have their pros and cons

why do you think people nowadays don't rely on books but rather on internet and other media types? Possibly because internet is fast and advanced. If you are looking for a cetain piece of information then looking through books will be time consuming while the same search will be much more faster if its internet.

"Specific reading"
    why do you think people read? so that they can get better at english and literature, for fun, school purposes or because their friend told them to try it sometime. what do you do in your free time?watch tv (cinema), read, go on computer and chat, cook and eat.free time also includes india-forums.   what kind of books do u like to read? novels/newspapers/articles or magazines?why? a variety of all, but love scary novels and latest gossip going around in magazines. what kind of genre do u like? why? horror/romance. why? because these genres come under the Vampire Diaries. =) why do you spend more time in that particular activity rather than books? umm..what activity are we talking about exactly? approximately how many hours do you spend near books? including homework, i guess 2 hours. free time- umm..half-an-hour or so. too much 'tension' if i do both in one day or at once. yikes! any specific author/reporter u have always liked/inspired of? L.J Smith, Stephanie Meyer, R.L. Stine, Laura Dower and many many others- including Dr Seuss and Mr.Brown. do you go to libraries? if so why? and how many hours do u spend there/ if not why? My school library- like every day! during spare blocks, and after school with my friends a.k.a my social/study group. LOL. Do you think observing is better than reading? Absolutely not, because unless you dont read, you dont write or observe. To learn letters is more important that making letters. Did that make sense?
  1. why do you think people nowadays don't rely on books but rather on internet and other media types? Younger people are dominating the country (with population and developing wide spreads) Us people are usually plugged into the outside world. They see what life is like in other countries (like U.S and my Canada). With all the conservative rules and bibles, other literature supplies- they like to change with the 'right' technique- using the source of the net and magazines (cinema)
my answers suck guys; bear with me! hopefully now u guys know more about me. reading is a big part of everyone's life. we just have to discuss more to know that we actually do take reading in a positive way sometimes- and not always negatively. oh..and reading doesnt = studies. it can be used in SO many different ways.
