Does it Count?

I've stated before in a post that I don't read. Here, Lines 5 and 6. Well, obviously I can read or I would have issues while visiting you guys posts. I just mean I don't read books. Well I read books but not the novel type, or most other types. I usually just waited for it to come out in the movies.

Fortunately that has changed. Last year we were discussing movies at work and I mentioned wanting to watch "The Hunger Games" to my boss. The wife aint a fan of any type of action movie so I never got around to seeing it. He said he had it on Audio CD's so he let me borrow the discs.

Well I kinda got hooked. I have a 50-60 minute drive each way to work so I have plenty of downtime. Normally the drive is just a sing along but now it is Story Time. In the past year I have read 14 books, or have I?

I mentioned that to the wife and her sis the other day and they claim it doesn't count as reading.

Is there something about paper that makes it better?

Just curious.

I was amazed at the difference between the movies and the books.

Overheard in the Restaurant

A co-worker and I went to lunch the other day. He took me to a new Thai restaurant. Two ladies sat in the booth behind us.  One was discussing her recent problems locating a place to live.  One facility would not allow dogs over 100 pounds. Another would not let her install a fenced area outside. She felt they should for a 160 pound dog that tends to nip people. The other woman said she had not had any problems with her Leopard Gecko.

I dont believe I would introduce the dog to the gecko.
