I am an avid reader, and quite proud of that fact.

As a consequence, for my sixteenth birthday I recieved the Amazon Kindle (2) as a gift. If anything, this new technology (e-books, e-reader) multiplied my reading time. Over the summer, I downloaded probably 20 or 30 books, not all of which I have read, but most of which I am planning to.

I started a new fantasy series (because mine are all dried up at the moment) and read all my summer reading. I reread some of my favorite few, which is a collection of probably more than 30, and I branched out in my interests, trying a few nonfictions and modern fictions as surfing through 2,000 fiction books, only nine of which I chose samples from.

When I read a book, I read it straight through: I read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in 10 hours after it was released. If I latch onto a series, I won't be able to stop reading until there is no more material to be scavenged, and I have been known to finish a set of four books in a weekend between school days. 

I have subscriptions to The Onion (because I like the subtitles) and The New York Times Book Review on my Kindle, and I read National Geographic before I cut up the pages for collages.

I am not a newsy reader, I mostly like the imaginary. It's more exciting than the actual, most of the time.
