I try to read all the time. I mean I read on my way to work and sometimes during the lunch time. I guess it's much better than updating your status on social media and posting photos of your lunch:)

I would read books or a new book after I finish one. But most of the time, I would read a new book if someone would recommend me to read it or if there's a movie I love and it was based from a book, then I would read it. :)

In my case I'm not sure that I don't read altogether too much. I reckon around 35 or forty books per yr lately. Predominantly nonfiction and research; its rare that simple fiction interests me anymore. Unless its some sort of classic I've been putting off. Also: every December, I usually re-read Dickens' 'Tale of Two Cities' (which is in my top five favorite books of all time). Anyway for a 52 week yr, this is all fairly avid enough. But like anything else, it can get out of hand if one fails to practice some moderation. One has to give time to other interests too. As much passion I have for the printed page, I wouldn't want to become a completely myopic bookworm, detached from the world at large. Knowledge without experience is a dangerous and unbalanced design for living. Oh--
Blow up the bridge?!

To be honest, I don't know. I read randomly like when I feel like it.

Never. I have read in the past, but it's no coincidence that my no longer reading came at the same time as completing my story The Representative in 2013. Nowadays I just appreciate visual art.

At least a little bit every day. Don't have a set schedule for it.
