    I'm reading 1984 right now, but I usually read physics related books.

    Because I happen to find books boring? They don't suit my learning style? People are different, you can't ask someone why they would find books boring, they just, do.

    I didn't ask if you thought they were boring or why, I asked why you could think it wasn't productive. Productivity has nothing to do with interest. I find doing the dishes boring, but it is productive nonetheless.

    Like I said, it doesn't suit my learning style. Some people will learn practically nothing from reading a book while others, find it very productive. People learn in different ways, it may be productive to try and improve your reading skills, but there is more productive things for me to be doing.

    I like to read a good book, sometimes i can get lost into a book for hours not paying attention to my surroundings at all. I have a lot of books on my "to-read-list", but i'm gonna save them for a later time. Right now i'm very busy with college, and i'm glad when i can do something other then reading a book, after being burried under schoolbooks the whole day long lol.

    But when i finally have my degree, i'm positive i'll catch up with all the lost time.

    books i want to read:
    - DaVinci code (Dan brown)
    - Angels & Demons (Dan brown)
    - De dominee (A real story about a dutch mafia boss)
    - Dune series(Frank Herbert)
    - Lord of the Rings (maybe)

    And i'm positive there are tons of other books i want to read. I like the fantasy/sci-fi genre the most, but i also like other genres. It's the same as with music, i like allmost every genre, just not every song in that genre.

    completely agreeing with Tallain and LA-384 on this matter. Reading is proved to be good for you, you can read about anything you can possibly think off (there's like no subject that doesn't have a book written about it) and it's a great way to kill extra time.

    I'm currently reading the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan.
    I'm somewhere around the end of book 10 (lol a 12 book serie that isn't finished yet :tongue: 10000 pages XD)
    I mostly read fantasy, I loved LotR, Harry Potter and wheel of time

    I got to the fourth or fifth book in the Wheel of Time and then couldn't find/get any of the rest. >.< I do hope he can finish and publish the last book before he dies.

    Books are like oxygen. I will always find something to read and read it at least a page everyday.

    Da Vinci code was fairly bad in my opinion.
    Angels and Demons, Deception Point etc. were far better in his collection.
