Deanna Fairchild (edstweety) | 6 comments Was hoping to find someone in this area that reads also....seems to be a shortage of folks that read instead of hunt and fish......or whatEVER they do!

Andrew (UncaDrew) | 3 comments My wife and I read voraciously here in Houston. And we don't hunt or fish at all, but we do like camping.

Deanna Fairchild (edstweety) | 6 comments lol! I guess in the eyes of Southeast Texas you are SAVED since you at least camp...lol. Around here I KNOW there are some people who read but I've yet to find them...and my husband doesn't read at all. So, he has to suffer watching me read all the time, poor guy!

Andrew (UncaDrew) | 3 comments We find that after a day of hiking in and setting up camp and all that, a little reading with the background sounds of nature are a perfect end of the day. Mind you, I don't mind cooking a nice fresh bit of fish for a meal, but fishing is more of a zen meditation for me than an "actual sport"! My wife hasn't yet seemed to master this concept and is often embittered in her attempts to adopt wild animals. Alas, c'est la vie, ne c'est pas?

Deanna Fairchild (edstweety) | 6 comments lol! My idea of 'fishing' is a good book and something interesting to drink... I have a menagerie here at home, a dog (Golden Retriever), two cats, a snake and a dwarf hamster. I stick to the 'tame' animals. Once, while camping in Utah (we lived there for a bit) we were treated to the early morning sight of two moose drinking from the river...sun barely up, mist on the ground...VERY awesome!

Robin (binmow) | 3 comments I am in the Houston area too and I love to read. No hunting or fishing, and really don't go camping either. Books are my drug of choice.

Deanna Fairchild (edstweety) | 6 comments I'm with you on that Robin. I've been reading tons since I've been laid off work. Reading is better than any drug!

Robin (binmow) | 3 comments I've always read alot. It is rare to see me without a book. I carry one in my purse just in case we stop somewhere and I get bored.
Nothing worse than sitting in the car while the hubby or one of the kids run in the store to get something and I don't have something to read. Or the doctor's office. I usually bring two. Just in case. :-)
when we were moving here last summer, I had set aside a few books so I would have something to read for the week we were in the hotel before we got back to the US. The movers packed those books before I finished packing my luggage and I couldn't find the box they had gone into. So I ended up reading all of my kid's books (daughter had the Twilight series and son had a few Harry Potters and the Eragon books).

Deanna Fairchild (edstweety) | 6 comments I understand that. I fit an iPhone last August so now I'm NEVER without a book between Kindle for iPhone and the B&N eReader. Then for Christmas I got a Nook. I LOVE the Nook! Still, you can read ANYtime with the iPhone and don't even need a light.

I've read all the Harry Potter and the first two of the Paoli books but even though I HAVE the books for the rest ( Twilight series, Bersinger) I haven't read them yet. I have them on my list to read this year. I got laid off in December so I've had more time to read than I normally do.

Where did you come from before Houston? I've lived out of country also and you don't find many folks that have. I lived in Spain during Jr High with my Uncle and his family. Of course that was a million years ago!

Robin (binmow) | 3 comments I am originally from Louisiana, but I've been moving around the last 6 years and I'm now settled here in Tomball. Before here, I lived in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and before that I lived in Muscat, Oman.

Deanna Fairchild (edstweety) | 6 comments How cool! It definitely opens your mind to travel to other countries.


message 12: by Heather (new)

Heather | 2 comments Hey Robin you're kinda like me. I'm originally from Louisiana, but have lived there, Texas and England. Now that I've settled in Katy, Texas, I love it here!!!

Jessica (jesslsteele) | 4 comments I am from the very edge of setx. I live in Orange which is right on the border of Louisiana. I am luck enough to have a small independent book store maybe 15 minutes from my house so I am able to support my local community and read all I can.


message 14: by Julie (new)

Julie (sabuda1009) I have also always been an avid reader. Though now that I have two very small children I don't have as much time. It is also rare to find me with out my book and I seriously only buy purses that are big enough to fit a book :). I am not from texas but I do live in Houston now and I hate fishing and I love camping.
