70 yrs old. Avid reader since age of 4. Have read 2-3 books per week most of my grown up life. Like fiction mostly, some bios, some history. Do not read bosom rippers. Same characters, same story line, just different settings. Waste of time.
"What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it."
