Such a great topic you have raised. From every passing day, there are less people who are into reading. I've read news that by 2050 we will have holograms, which will replace books.
True or not, I am sure there are still many people in modern world, who have libraries at home and enjoy reading. My favourite athor is Hemingway. I like his style of writing and amazing books

I'd love to be more into authors like Hemingway or Nietzsche, but I guess the books I was obligated to read at school made me too scared or uninterested in anything which isn't mainly fun. Like Sidney Sheldon, whose books are like Hollywood movies and Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes which is more on the fun side than anything else(although you learn a lot by reading Sherlock's adventures).

As for books turning into holograms, well I also suppose that there will always be those who'll still prefer actually turning paper pages instead of the easier stuff like audio books or holograms or cell phones apps. I'll probably always be among those people.

I read constantly, daily, and have since before I started in grade school. Literacy was big in my house, and Mom had me reading really, really young. I never, ever go anywhere without my kindle app on my pad. Waiting, delays, time to kill in an unfamiliar place...I read. I do not do waiting, with any patience at all...so I read. Before bed... read a few pages. Even while cooking! (Like I said, impatience and boredom are a problem)

I read mostly historical fiction, sci-fi and, well, whatever strikes my interest. Usually fiction of some kind. Right now, I'm re-reading American Gods (Neil Gaiman), which I first read 10 years ago (-ish).

I am book eater and I can't stop until the dish is finished. That is why I am afraid to read when I'm busy - after starting a new story I'll disappear from the reality for 3-6 hours.
