You know reading is important to you when...

you hear there's a big winter storm coming and the first thing you think to do in preparation is make sure your ereader is fully charged and loaded with plenty of unread books!

Or you know when reading is important because you do this even when the weather is perfect.

...you feel somewhat uneasy if there is nothing to read within easy reach.

- You carry your ereader at all times.
- You feel extremely energized when your read after a long hiatus (I don't live in my home country and went there for a month, because I had company all the time, I did not read much).
- When you read (ereader) while you take a walk.

I am very hurt by the suggestion that I might take a hiatus from reading.

I always read when I am walking places. Walking is boring...

- You have made sure that every single device that has a screen, has the ability to read books (applications and books are present!)
- You have always at least one device on your body that allows you to read
- You read before sleeping, even if you're actually too tired to even keep your eyes open

Not sure I could even do that... When I go to my mother for a holiday, I'm always reading when they're watching TV...

I never read when I'm walking, but I'm being read to

You have memorized the backs of all the cereal boxes, and are fixing to move on to the canned vegetables...

(It involves an emergency sleep-over at the home of a non-reading friend. Let's not think about it, it is too painful....)

You take something to read when going to watch bobsleigh world cup races - there is some downtime and even allowing for time to move somewhere else along the track you can squeeze in at least 30 minutes worth of reading between heats.
Improvement for this year: bought a cheap stylus to poke the PW with so that I can turn the pages and keep my gloves on in -10c temperatures (last year I just took a pbook with me for that reason).

  • You build a wardrobe of shirts with breast pockets big enough to hold your ereader.
  • You always keep a backup ereader charged.
  • You keep different sizes of ereaders for different types of books.
