I Used To Read Books

cryptonaut-in-exile: My Top 6 Books Read in 2000

A pretty decent list. Hurts a little. There was a time I used to read six books a month ... heck, there were times I read six a week. I still read, but mostly online these days, so not many books. I like to devour books. Dive in for hours at a time and read the whole thing in a night or two. Don't live that way any more. I make time for Kim Stanley Robinson novels but, aside from that, my reading is 10 minutes here, 5 minutes there and almost always on the web, usually starting from google reader.

Netflix streaming and Hulu have also put TV and movies at my fingertips all hours of the day. There's always something to watch and, being lazy and busy, I can watch Veronica Mars while I un- and re-load the dishwasher. Can't do that with a book in hand.
