Dh hates to read--unless it is a car manual. He has 2 books he got from my Mom 5 years ago and isn't halfway through either!

Dh loves to read, but doesn't have much time for it. He keeps buying books that stay unopened, lol. The thought is there, though.

Dh is a reader like me. But we read different things (I like mystery, he likes fantasy) so our house is a library! I just don't have the heart to throw books away. They're like my babies.

DH claims he reads on the computer all day...which he does I guess. He has not picked up a book since high school. I wish he liked it more so we could discuss books together.

My DF likes to read too. He used to read Science Fiction books, but now I have got him reading the same fantasy books that I do. That is good because we can talk about the books together

DH loves to buy books, but he doesn't take the time to sit down and read them. As far as writing, not at all! He does blog a bit on blogger, but that is it!

My DH never read until a couple of years ago. He finally got into the Left Behind series and discovered that he likes to read at night. He said that I just made it look so fun that he had to give it a try . I'm glad I had an influence on him.
He hates to write...I Love it!

Dh claims that reading just makes him want to do something else. If he is interested in what he is reading- most of what he reads are college textbooks BORING- then he says he likes to read. But I have never seen him just pick up a book to read for fun. He doesn't see why I do and what is so interesting about it.

No! DF doesn't read that much, he says it makes him tired. He bought a few books a few months ago and has yet to read the cover Oh well, more for me, i guess! He doesn't really like to write either!

DH loves to read. Although I read more books than he does. He used to read more than he does now. We both like to read the same type of books, so we share. We have a huge collection. Neither one of us can bare to get rid of our books.

No, he doesn't. He claims he is ADD and it certainly seems like it sometimes.

DH doesn't read although he says he "has in the past."
