I'm a book-worm! Always in books!

The best  place  to be  , behind  books  Tetyan a :)  Thank you  for passing 

I agree that reading is very important for improving our English skills. I love reading but not reading categories I prefer. I prefer books about social life, I find it less complicated than others books. There is a saying that says: " tell me what you read, I tell you who you are" ....

Exactly   reading  educates   us  and  shows volume of our personality as well

Thank you bright rubies for you presence 

Books are my best friends. I'm an avid reader. A few years back I can read 2 - 3 books in a month (average 300 - 500 pages), but nowadays I only managed to read about 1 book in a month. I prefer novels - murder, crimes, thrillers as such, and read the net news - BBC and Daily Mail UK.

It enriches my vocabularies as well as general knowledge.

I like to read people's blogs on this site to learn about what they think and where they live.  I also like to read fiction and non-fiction books.

The non-fiction that I like is history.

The fictional books I like are mystery novels or adventure novels.  Some books that I start I may leave unfinished if I am still not interested after one or two hundred pages.  I believe that reading is the best way to increase your vocabulary and you can often tell the meaning of the new word by the way it is used.  If you are unsure, you can always look in the dictionary to find the meaning and how to pronounce the word. : )

Reading is my hobby in leisure time. Book categories I like are about religion, politics, adventure, fiction and laws. the novel I love the most is "three kingdoms", an ancient novel written by a Chinese author (Lo Kuan Chung). It talks about the time when China was divided into three nations with unremitting battles.

I love reading because besides making my mind relax, this hobby may enrich me with knowledge of the world around. Moreover, I also agree with Mr.Bob above, reading is the best way to gain vocabulary and the way such words are used, since then it helps to diversify word-use during writing process.
