I am a casual reader. I am honest about it. I spend more time behind my Apple computer than with reading books. The problem I have with reading is that I need to have no distractions of all kind. No TV, no music, no chit-chat in the background, no computer screen in front of me. Believe me, I tried, but after reading the same sentence over and over again, I gave up.

Then again, if the situation is right, I like to read books about history, culture, spirituality, philosophy, fantasy and any combination between those kinds. I like an intellectual challenge. Books that make you wonder. About myself, about the world, about the universe.

I like change. People say I have an opinion about almost everything. I think it's true. But I gladly let them change my opinion if they have the right arguments, for me that is :-)
And there's one good point about books: the writer speaks to me and I am not able to interfere or to argue with him. I just have to hear his story till he is finished. Then he rests his case and leaves me with new answers and often a lot of new questions. Time for me to go on.

That's what I like.
