    7. That would depend on how you define "reading" :look I mean, I read something every day, if only the labels on the food, or traffic signs. ;)
    But if you mean reading as in reading a book, maybe a day or two? I am not sure really :$ok

    I'm pretty sure I've gone a month without reading for pleasure before. It always makes me sad when I have a reading drought.

    I assume you mean reading a book. Then it is about 7 or 8 years. But more recently it might be a month or so, not sure though.

    Oh wow ..... it's been almost 2 months since I picked up a book for a sheer pleasure read through. For sooooo long it has been all textbooks, all the time. Which is great, because I love reading them, but I do miss reading just for reading'ss sake. Unfortunately being a grown-up means prioritizing my reading time :(

    1. What is your favourite beverage to have while sitting comfortably with a good book?

    In warm weather, curled up in a hammock in the mountains. In cold weather, curled up in an armchair with a lap full of kitty.

    Never!

    Totally. And do all the time.

    1. What is your favourite beverage to have while sitting comfortably with a good book?
    Hot or iced tea... preferably hot.

    2. What is your favourite place to read?
    My chair. It's a comfy recliner in my living room.

    3. Do you write in your books and what?
    WHAT? No.

    4. Do you prefer to read one book at a time, or several at once?
    One at a time. I can't keep stuff straight if I try to do more than one at a time.

    5. Can you read on the bus, train, car, etc.?
    I can... not if there's lots of turns or anything though.. just straight going is best.

    French maybe? I've never really thought of that.

    7. The longest you’ve gone without reading?
    Um.. probably around two months or so. It was awful.

    1. What is your favourite beverage to have while sitting comfortably with a good book?
    I've no specific preference.

    2. What is your favourite place to read?
    In a sofa or a comfortable chair

    3. Do you write in your books and what?
    Only in non-fiction books for studying purposes, otherwise no.

    4. Do you prefer to read one book at a time, or several at once?
    Well, due to my studies, I'm always reading multiple books at any one time. However, when it comes to fiction, I tend to prefer one book at a time. The most fiction books I've read at once was probably three, though unintentionally.

    5. Can you read on the bus, train, car, etc.?
    Sadly, no. I get motion-sick very easily. :(

    6. If you could read books written in another language which one would it be?
    Well, I already read a lot of books in English, but I guess Chinese or Arabic would be interesting in terms of seeing different cultural idioms and associations.

    7. The longest you’ve gone without reading?
    Probably a few weeks at most. Not counting my pre-literate years, that is. :p

    8. A book called "My Barnyard Animal Friends". I was raised around horse people, so they wanted me to be educated on the subject :lol

    French I think :)

    7. The longest you’ve gone without reading?

    After I've start reading, then I'm not sure. I feel like I've always had my nose sticked into a book or cartoon :lol But few days?

    8. Huh, what is the question?

    No idea. As I've said before, I've always been reading once I learned how to read. Donald Duck? :lol

    I can't remember my first book, I've just always had them.

    My first reading memory is me in kindergarten, reading a Weekly Reader (a little newsletter that was age-appropriate) and learning how to read the word "kindergarten."
