    What other hobbies do you enjoy?

    No, I haven't. But I've seen it in the stores & it does look interesting. With the price of games, I usually prefer to play the game at someone else's house after they've bought it first lol. Pictionary is one of my fav. games.

    Reading more than one book at the same time

    I have read more than one book at a time, but I stopped doing that... I really don't like it. I like to get lost in a story, and I just don't feel I'm doing that when I read more than one book at a time.

    How quickly do you read?

    Has anyone ever taken a speed reading course? I never have, but my friend took one in University. He said they teach you how to skip a lot of stuff & just take what's relevant out of the story. I always wonder where we develop our speed (or lack of), reading habits. And if they improve...
