Keep in mind, you can read a book in any format you like. I like paper books because I enjoy the smell of the ink on the page. If they ever make new book perfume I am going to buy it by the gallon. There is something wonderful about holding a paper book in your hands and turning the pages. The thrill you get when you bend back the corner of a page to save your place for later is like nothing else. At the same time, I like reader on my e-reader. The e-ink is great on the eyes. It is great to have literally thousands of books in my happy little hand at all times. I never leave home without one of my e-readers. I do not read on my phone or tablet even though many people find that enjoyable.

Reading can be fun. There are lots of people who would like to be readers, who like to read fiction and non-fiction, mysteries, humorous stories, sad stories, stories about war, stories about peace, good books, bad books, business books, religious books and self-improvement books. I like almost every type of book. I am different from most people. Many people who do not consider themselves to be readers have a favorite type of book, a type that they pick up and cannot put down.
It is sensational to love to read.At its simplest level, reading is the act of looking at groups of letters , determining that the letters are words and purring those words together to convey information. Most people learn to read when they are children. In the beginning, we learn to read so we can learn. Later we read so we can learn. The truly fortunate among us, begin to read simply for the joy of reading.
In my opinion, the best time to read is all day every day and twice on Sunday. In 2012, the Pew Institute participated in a study to determine how many books the average American reads in a year. E-readers read approximately 24 books per year and traditional book readers read approximately 15 books per year. In a good year, I read about 50 books per year. In a great year, I read 75 books per year. All that reading takes time. If you are a working mom like me, with a husband, 4 kids, a dog and a cat, life is busy. It is sometimes hard to find time to read. It reminds me of the expression – “get it in where you can fit in.”
