This year, I've probably read 25 adult books. Likely several hundred children's books. I usually read a lot more in my downtime, but this has been a
weird year. In a normal year I probably read 75-200 books, when I was younger it was more like 400-500 books per year.
I don't have a smartphone or tablet or e-reader of any kind. I don't even use text messages. I work on a computer, play games on computers, etc, but
still prefer the nice papery smell of a well-worn book for entertainment purposes.
I get books from the library if I'm not sure whether or not I'll actually want to purchase it. Well, the exception is for Jim Butcher - I always
pre-order his books because I know they'll be good. Otherwise, secondhand books work for me.
