But, enough about books. . . what else do you read?? Magazines? Newspapers? Professional journals? Cereal boxes? Phone books? Purchase invoices? Homework? (Please be specific. There may be a test later.)
The easy answer, pretty much anything. At least if I'm not specifically reading a book or magazine, or watching tv, my eyes will drift to whatever text is available, including the soap dispenser, toothpaste tube, cereal boxes, whatever. Growing up in Canada meant that I would read the English side, and then the French side too! And kept reading them over and over every time I brushed my teeth or ate the cereal! Phone books? Not so much, but it's usually tucked away so it's out of sight anyway. Newspapers? Only when I'm on holiday somewhere and I pick up the free hotel copies. I've tried having a subscription and they just stack up, each one partly read. Magazines? Definitely. Besides the ones I just pick up on a whim when I'm at a bookshop, I currently have a subscription to TIME (small, easy to carry and keeps me up on world news once a week so it works much better for me than newspapers), McSweeney's (just started this year), Zoetrope: All-Story (another one I started this year), and newbooks. When we lived in the UK I would also regularly pick up Pages and the Waterstone's Quarterly Books Magazine (free when you spent over £20 so of course I always spent over £20!). There are plenty of others I've been tempted by but shipping costs to Japan make me think twice. Plus I've already gotten loads of great book suggestions and info from blogs and websites to keep me going for years!
