I’m a firm believer that reading is one of the key factors contributing to good writing. I’m an avid enough reader that my book purchasing has sometimes gone from the “expensive” to “problematic” category.

And, via Professor Stephen Bainbridge are my results to the “What Kind of Reader Are You?” quiz:

Dedicated Reader
