Let me know if there is a thread like this one or not.
Thanks a bunches.

My Turn:

I don't read books all the time because I can't visualize when I read why I prefer to write rather than read. My condition sucks but enough about me tell me about yourself.

Bonus Questions:

1) How often do you write stories?

2) What are your opinions on people who do not like to read books?

If light novels, visual novels and manga counts, then yes, otherwise no.

I don't write stories
Not everyone can like the same thing

I love reading books, but I tend to take my time with them too. I would say I read a book every other week.

I don't write all that often, although I'd like to.

No prejudice against people that don't like to read. I might still make recommendations though.

Last "book" I read was a year ago.. Maybe two and it was a VN I still haven't finished.

I used to love reading books, and I seemed to be able to find good books all the time. But now...


Either a lot of books I've read are either terrible or just aren't exciting enough for me. It's like, in the end, nothing really happened, or only a few interesting things happened. Plus I don't have a lot of money to buy books regularly. So I only read like only one or two books a month.


I really enjoy writing, and I want to become a famous author one day. But I hardly write for a multitude of reasons.... I'm really bad at writing beginnings, which often causes me not to write, to name one reason.


I can't help but slightly look down on people who say they don't like reading depending on their reasoning for it. If they're one of those people who say "Ew, books r lame!!" then yeah, I feel a bit disapproving.

Hooray! Another person who wants to be an author!

Daily. On lunch, after work, before work, you name it. I need more hours in the day dammit!

And that's usually not even the manga/LN related stuff.

I read a lot. I always have a book or two or three that I am reading. I usually finish anywhere from three to twelve books a week depending on the type of book and whether or not I am rereading any of them. Right now I am trying to downsize my library. Even though I left most of the books behind after my divorce, I still moved 9000 pounds of stuff to my new place, and most of this was books.

I don't write very often anymore. I used to write a lot of poetry. I started a novel once. People keep urging me to write up my life story because they say it would be wilder than anything on tv.

I think anyone who avoids reading is missing out on more things than they could ever imagine on their own.

Hi,

Dunno if anyone else has / had this problem too but when you read so fast that you are almost disgusted of purchasing books, i mean even though i "re-read" those quite often it still seems like it's wasting money when you've already finished the book just a few hours after you bought it.

As for answering the question, if manga / LN count then i've read one this week. Even more if you count scans.

I don't read books very often (except boring textbooks ).

It's mainly due to lack of time. I used to like reading a lot, but I am busy with school and the free time I do have is typically short bursts (I hate reading only one chapter and stopping).

Bonus Questions:
1) I don't write stories, but I have a couple in my head that I am thinking about maybe writing down someday.

2) Saying you don't like books is like saying you don't like anime. It's a medium of entertainment. If you discount the whole medium for little to no reason, you'll miss out on everything it has to offer.
