    Physical almost always, the screen hurts my eyes
    Usually before bed, I try to read about as long as I can still comprehend what's going on
    Almost once a day, but I don't keep myself to a schedule

      physical books all the way
      I prefer to read in the morning and generally when there's sunlight outside, I can't stand doing so with industrial lights
      I read almost everyday except when I'm too tired to, I don't push myself because that makes it dreadful
      I typically read in my couch, I'm grateful for how much light can get into my living room

      Real books

      Physical books, oftentimes thrifted
      If I'm not busy I'll do some in the afternoon. Otherwise before bed.
      Usually just one reading session of ~1,5 hour. When I have a free day I'll add another such session in the afternoon.

    Both. I ordered an ereader the other day because I hate reading on my phone.
    During the day.
    I only recently started reading again but I'm trying to do it every day for at least 30 minutes.
    In bed or on my chair. Gonna start doing it outside.

    or physical?
    Physical. For some reason I can never seem to concentrate when reading e-books, plus I like holding a physical book in my hands
    >>What time of day do you typically read/prefer to read?
    If I'm busy, just before bed. If I have a free day, I'll read for a few hours in the afternoon and then again before I go to sleep.
    >>How often do you read, and how much do you read in a given sitting?
    Every single day for at least an hour in each sitting. I don't know if any other anons relate but I feel like a need some time for my brain to "warm up" before I start going at a good pace so I can't just read for 15 minutes at a time.
    do you read?
    Either lying on the couch downstairs or sitting on my bed with a few pillows behind my back.

      Physical books
      Night. Before go to sleep.
      On most days I read for about an hour.
      In my bed.
      Currently reading Girolamo Savonarola the Pope’s greatest adversary.

      Physical, unless I have to read an ebook.

      I prefer to read in the morning.

      In the mornings I read a chapter of the Bible, a Hadith from an-Nawawi's 40 Hadith, some Qur'an, and then I read 25-50 minutes of a book I have in rotation.

      I read on a bed, couch, or desk.

      I am currently reading the Iliad, the NRSV apocryphal literature, The Ode Less Travelled by Stephen Fry, the Three Pillars of Zen, and Slowed Reading In a Hurried Age.

    >>What time of day do you typically read/prefer to read?
    Morning and nights.
    >>How often do you read, and how much do you read in a given sitting?
    Read everyday. Four hours per day. Two in the morning, two afternoon. Read 30 minutes, take a 5-10 minute break, read another 30 mins.
    do you read?
    In bed or sofa.

    or physical?
    Both for different needs. Physical means I got it from the library, and I treat those like you would treat a TV show in the 90s: ephemeral, comes and goes, if I don't like it I'll just return it next weekend, and discovery. It's satisfying to go to the library, see something like "Recreational Math" and "Alexander The Great by Paul Cartledge" and go "I'll read that, I was reading too much WWII books"
    Ebook is when I need to read the book, cause it's a IQfy classic, on a topic I'm interested in, or I don't wanna check it out in library. Catch-22 is an exampel.
    I FRICKING HATE LED screens so I use my kindle (might get a better version of those e-inks, but not now)
    >>What time of day do you typically read/prefer to read?
    After work, before bed and outside/in library.
    >>How often do you read, and how much do you read in a given sitting?
    I read everyday (cause you gotta sleep everyday) and about an hour. I cannot stand 5 minute reading sessions, it's like foreplay with no sex.
    do you read?
    Library or outside.
    reading?
    Alexander The Great by Paul Cartledge. Great read and really illumined that youtube videos on a topic suck. Cause the videos I watched on Alexander before left a lot of stuff out, as well as context around Alexander, such as his shitty relationship with Philip II.
    Let me add in another question
    >What would you read
    I try to be diverse in my reading, but I cannot for the L I F E of me stand twitter books. I have no idea what's a better way to describe the concept other than examples my school's book club tried to read. (I forgot the names but I'll just say what the issue was)
    >first book: decent opening, then we had four pages on the MC saying his dad was a piece of shit.
    This was before we even saw him speak, and it certainty didn't add to his character. It comes across that the author was just picking a bone with his own dad
    >second book: maid is a super duper autistic, and is unable to cope with anything except cleaning
    It's so over the top and heavy handed with expressing this idea. Tell, don't show, and it left me not wanting to read. I read a short story where a husband/wife wanted to kill each other, to spare the other from learning about their adultery: in nine pages those couples were more fleshed out and compelling than this b***h in 30.

    Physical. I do not like digital.
    I don't have a hard rule, usually when I can find the time but these lately typically means more towards the afternoon when everyone is settled.
    Depends what I'm reading. I try to shoot for at least a chapter or two a night but if I'm into it I can lose track and go further.
    On my couch in the game/tv room.

    >Ebooks or physical?
    Physical. Read a few full books as PDFs earlier this year and it was fine, but my eyes prefer physical copies. More often than not when I get a free PDF somewhere and I enjoy the book, I’ll buy a physical copy. I will say that the Calibre e-reader is nice for language learning. Just link a dictionary to it and away you go. Makes it so much easier. I respect anyone who has the tenacity and dedication to work with a physical dictionary when learning a language.
    >What time of day do you typically read/prefer to read?
    Getting up at 5am and reading for 2 hours is the best. Caffeine, kefir, silence, and flow state reading. Nothing beats it.
    >How often do you read, and how much do you read in a given sitting?
    Everyday, and I shoot for 30-40 pages per sitting. 60 pages a day is always my goal, but I haven’t met it since the winter months. Reading has fell off due to language learning.
    >Where do you read?
    Inside or in garden. Finding a quiet space is important.
    >Currently reading?
    Jünger - “A German Officer in Occupied Paris”
    Hitler - “Mein Kampf, Vol. 1” (re-read in German/English edition)
    Comparing these two men in these works is interesting.
    Platonov - Happy Moscow
    Marx - Capital
    As someone on the right, I feel like I need to begin to seriously engage leftist theoretical texts.

    Physical
    I prefer to read late morning or around noon, though I do read at any part of the day whenever I get the chance.
    I read every day for at least an hour.
    I usually read outside or in an armchair by a large window in my bedroom.

        Had a book lice infestation last year and had to put all my books through that process. Now I do it with every book I buy just in case it comes with any bugs.

    >Ebooks or physical?
    Used to read physical, but once I bought a kindle, I completely dropped them and went digital. Literally zero downside to ebook reading.
    >>What time of day do you typically read/prefer to read?
    After I wake up in the morning, or right before I go to sleep. Morning reading is usually the best, because you are fresh and therefore you can concentrate easily. Night time reading is usually more rewarding since it helps you relax, but 7 out 10 times tiredness catches up with me and I struggle keeping my eyes open.
    >>How often do you read, and how much do you read in a given sitting?
    It depends with my mood. Sometimes I spend months only reading, and sometimes I dont because I prefer to watch movies/finish my gaming backlog
    do you read?
    At my house. Reading outside can be fun, but its distracting
    reading?
    Book of 5 rings by Musashi. Better than Sun Zu's Art of War in terms of giving technical advice, and there is also something there for the common man as well. Its an easy read. Right after that, I will try to read Infinite Jest. Its size is daunting and I dont know if its worth my trouble or not
