I would only read a third the number of books I used to in days before www and probably one quarter of the papers and magazines. It is my choice. If I want to read, I read. If I want to sit at pc with the www, then I shall.
What I mostly read are books with an historical bent, often local Australian history, but sometimes about very different subjects. I am known for getting much pleasure from just staring at maps
When someone's partner was on holidays over easter and so no free newspapers were arriving, I thought I would get through a couple of books, but I just did not feel like reading anything full of facts. I wanted something light, something I could not put down, but could also put down for a couple of days and pick up easily where I left off.
I remembered a couple of books my step mother lent me, the time when we went to Broken Hill mid last year and we stayed a night with her.
So I have knocked of John Grisham's The Last Juror and I am half way through The Partner. It is nice to just escape into books like these and enjoy the read.
I still have The Broker to go and it will probably travel to the UK and back with me.
