How many books do you read a year?

5? 10? 50?
Me, just about 20 I guess...

How many books do you intend to read a year? 

5? 10? 50? 100?
Me, n or as many as possible.  Unfortunately I don't earned enough to buy so many, I haven't got so much time to read so many (for some reason, I can't read on a moving vehicle any more, that's killing me), and the books I read just get thicker and thicker.

For me, I intend to read a book every 2 or 3 days.  But that's just wishful thinking.  I remember I used to read one book a day when I was in high school.  I would visit the library everyday, and just pick up the next book card from the drawer that I left off a day before.  Sometimes, I could read up to 2 or 3 books a day.  But now, I can only manage 1 a week.  @__@

I only read Chinese books back then and are still what I read most, but I do read a bit of English books occasionally and once in a blue moon, Japanese comics. 

What do I find in books that I read?  Mmm... brain work out, heart work out, sometimes, lacrimal gland work out.  Naa, it's a lot more than that.  You'll only find out when you start reading.

to me, reading is like a solitary hobby. You can share the book but quite hard to share the joy of reading, very personal. Hope you are well?

are you now in Hongkong?

Yes, I agree, you just can't share the joy of reading. You have to be there and feel it for yourself. It takes me places I've never been, it allows my imagination to fly.

Yes, I'm in HK, check your email my dear :)
