    I don’t read as much as I should, but I do read way more than I want to. I never get around to much entertainment, though. It’s mostly leadership and spiritual discipline. I do not like reading, so I find my entertainment elsewhere.

    Nancy Drew?! I can understand Hardy Boys.

    While I know this post is from over a year ago, I had to make a comment about what my wonderful non-fiction reading husband had to say. 🙂
    I personally read both Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys and enjoyed them both. If it is a good mystery story it should appeal to both boys and girls, and both of these did when I was young.
    I’m still a bookworm, and read mostly for relaxation. Give me a good fiction book and I can escape for hours if I let myself. Sometimes you need an escape from your own problems for a while so you immerse yourself in someone elses.
    I do agree that we need to balance our reading and that for me is always a challenge, given my wonderful bookworm tendencies. 🙂

    YES! When I was a kid any mystery book hooked me and I didn’t care if the main character was a girl. Maybe that is why I liked them…hmmm.

    I still don’t read many fiction books because I tend to not put them down until I’m finished with them (like you state, they allow for the escape). Just like when I was a kid. I do think to some extent books have been replaced by the Internet but that is a different post.

    I probably read more now (in the past year or so) than I have in many years. Wouldn’t put myself back in the bookworm category though.
