    Depression and Readers

    There is a connection between creativity/intelligence and mental illness. There's a book by Kay Redfield Jamison called Touched With Fire that examines the link between creativity and mental disorders such as depression and bipolar. Try googling the book, the link I found was too long...

    Can you ever catch up or is it a losing battle?

    I have the same sort of problem. I feel obligated to read classics and "expand my mind", which takes longer than reading lighter books, so it puts me behind. I should gorge myself on Stephen King novels all summer because once I start college I'll be doing plenty of reading to "expand my mind"...

    Who is your favorite fictional character and why?

    Hannibal Lecter, without a doubt. The release of Hannibal gave so much additional understanding and depth to his character, which had been building through Red Dragon and Silence of the Lambs. He has mental capabilities beyond the measure of human beings, which make him seem to be a...

    I agree that getting unabridged is a must. What's the point in listening to a book if you've missed out on a bunch of the story? It's like reading every other page of a book. I only get unabridged. Also, a good deal of what I listen to is recent enough that the author is the one reading...

    Are Audiobooks Cheating?

    Hello. I'm Sara, I'm 17, and I'm new. Well, I love reading, and I do it whenever I can, but the problem is as I've gotten older my time has become rather thin. My days are filled and by the time I get home at night I have a hard time staying awake in bed to read. I still get books read...
