hey guy, I'm telling the truth. I don't read mangas, anime or any comics except " Doremon ". I watch them on TV. Nowaday, I read novels, Vietnamese's ones and English's ones

I think I only read 2 book ... but I decide to read more than what I use to.. because I want to improve my English skills .. i hear that if you read more you will do more better in the writing ...
but I use to read a lot in Arabic .. I can't confirm how much but I remember I always keep reading whenever I have time to read.

I never count how many they are. I thought I have read about 30 books a year. But now I think that's enough. And I want to apply what I have read in my life. :twisted:

In my opinion the idea of summing up the number of books you read in a year time is not so preposterous as it seems to you. there is no use to emphasize that you're a reading and intelligent person - I was sure in it :wink: 8)

but I guess it's very easy, I do remember the books I read and the plot and the characters, so why not to count the books? :roll:

so how many books did you read so far starting in 2007? :D

My dear Lady! that's just fine as sometimes I read the book as long as I can - to prolong the pleasure!

In january I was reading a lot, though it was supposed I was preparing to my exams, now I started a new semester and my books were replaced by studying :(

So, this year I’ve read eight books in English, four in Russian, and one in Ukrainian. Thirteen in total.


So how do you know Ukrainian? Any relatives?

i've started reading The old man than the sea by Ernest Hemingway... i'm going on so slowly... i've read only 38 pages since yesterday...
honestly, i'm not really liking the book... i'm finding it boring :roll:

i usually take too long to finish a book when i don't like it.. let's see when i'll finish this book :P

to know what happens in the end! :P
i've read many books which i didn't like & thought were boring only to know what will happen and how it ends; so i think i'm doing the same about this book...
honestly, i doubt if i'll finish it... maybe i'll just put it away & try reading it again later after a couple of months or years... i've just got to page 55!!! it's a record for me... i usually read and finish a book of 500 pages in a day :P
