Which one of these activities do you dedicate more time to?

In other (crude) words, are you a book worm or a tech freak?

Edit: could an admin please add this option to the poll: Hanging out on MobileRead
and correct the typo in the title of the poll: to -> do

Oh god, absolutely reading. But I do spend time working on my list of what to read on my book spreadsheet, and I also read on my breaks at work and whatnot.

I also just buy my books on the Sony store, too lazy for the other stuff.

In short, total bookworm.

Good tech allows me to spend very little time in organizing the ebooks.

The real time stealing culprit over the past several months has been work. Yes, I know I should not use four letter words in this family orientated forum and I am sorry that I had to use that one. PLease forgive me.

Ack, not only did you use a four letter word, you used the worst one possible! Go stand over in the corner, and just wait till your father gets home!

How I wish I spent more time organizing my books. How I wish I spent ANY time organising my books. How I wish my books were organised. Looking for an ebook book is nothing like looking for a needle in a haystack, it is more like looking for a needle in a needle stack.

Way too much time on all 3.
Does anyone have one of those 12 step programs?

Organizing my ebooks ....
One of those things I have to do, along with organizing my MP3, organizing my videos, organizing my software install backups, organizing my game saves ....

Anyone know a way to remove the need for sleep?
It should make things easier ...
Well, except that I would surely use that time to collect more things rather than organizing them
