This may sound very strange but I am interested is there anyone who doesn't read at home because I am of that kind :D I work as system administrator in pretty big company and I often do not have much spare time so most of my reading is taking place in public transportation to and fro home smile.gif It was hard in the beginning to focus on the reading but now I am well trained and nothing bothers me. Trip to the job is about 45 minutes so I can read few short chapters... smile.gif

I do read alot at home but as I travel some 300 kms by train 2-3 times a month ( 8 hours a return trip ) so I tend to read a book or more during that time. By reading you don´t even notice the trip itself....!!

I read everywhere, at any time, whenever I can. I mostly read at home, hours during the afternoon and night. While going somewhere by car, plane, bus, underground... I get to read some ten books a day and I still have a severe deficit of books, since I buy many more than I can read... redface.gif :rolleyes:

Alright Kai, you read only that much and yet you make me sick with how much you know. :D Man, how do you do it?

I read anywhere, any time, I was talking to my father about this the other day and realised that I am almost never more than six feet from a book that I may want to read. I tend to bring a book with me to read when travelling though there is usually a book in my bag anyhow so if I have a quiet few minutes out it comes. On the other hand I am a bit of a slow reader sometimes, it has taken me ages to get through 'beyond good and evil' and Middlebrooks 'The Hamburg Raid' simply because I have been busy doing other things.
