Yes, I am an avid reader.
I will read a magazine in the checkout lines........if a book really grasps me, I will devour it, losing sleep to do so. In fact, once a start a book, I feel compelled to finish it. If it was a particulary good story,....I feel sad, at its ending, as though, I had said goodbye to a friend.
There have been times, that I have read the dictionary!
