Reading interest depends upon age?
Reading is my hobby.But I don't have enough time to read.During travel time I enjoy reading.I read novels for entertainment.I think reading increase our span of attention and improves our curiosity.
What about you??
I liked reading too much before such as novels, motivation books, comics, but lately I am being lazy to read haha. I've just sorting out my old books then gave them to others who are interrested to read it.
Being lazy you missed the happiness of reading.Just read and enjoy the world's happiness.Thanks for your visit and comments.
I'm fond of fantasy books, like Sapkowski, Abercrombie, Cook, Martin, etc. It helps to escape the real world. But also classics, documentary or historical pieces are great. Read all the same is boring, so these are great genres to make a change and educate ownself.

I like to read books. Historical books, novels and books with detectives (I love mystery) and generally books that have as fond History and real facts and stories like: WWI, WWII, Jack the ripper, and other things. This kind of books helps me to learn many things. I also like to read books which their stories take place in different period of time and in different places. For exapmle, recently I read a story which was situated in London in 1890. I have read a book that the story was situated in France around 1600 or somewhere there (I dont remember well). I like to see how was the life that time and it is magical when I can see the images and catch the feeling while I am reading. Writer has done very very good work :)
Generally I like books that keeps my interest and I learn from them. I don't like books that say much but say nothing.
Well said.Reading make us to learn many things.Reading gives confidence, strength and will power to us.I appreciate your reading habit.Thanks for your nice comment.
Sure do, I love reading :)
And I read only for entertaining purposes. Everytime I read for academics I got deadly bored.
I think reading can have a lot of benefits: It broadens not only the imagination, but also the intellect, it helps to see and hopefully understand points of view, opinions, backgrounds that are different from ours. It is a cheap way of traveling, it helps to avoid undesired people talking to you on your way home, it helps to kill time. It helps to improve your writing skills and it broadens your vocabulary.
Also, if you put a little effort, you can use it as a tool to improve your analysis skills - though I haven't improve mines AT.A.L.L. 'cause I have given that little tiny effort part.
I don't have a favorite kind of book. I like to read children's, horror, existential, dystopian, 18+, long etc.
Right now I'm reading Girl with Curious Hair by David Foster Wallace in my native language and whenever I got bored of it I continue reading The Complete Works by H P Lovecraft in English.
