    Does reading USMB 'count' as reading?

    I say it does.

    Just like in most novels out there, here you see the good the bad and the ugly.

    Shame the (insert your anti-deity here) and tell the truth, I'll admit to adding my 2 cents to each category.

    I consider anything that requires a degree of concentration, reading. I don't think reading USMB posts count. Although I have to say some people's posts based on good research are highly elucidating.

    You can only read a specific book so many times before it's no longer interested, and most people don't enjoy every single book out there (I only read three authors and a few unknown ones). The internet is one huge, never ending, always changing, living novel. Hell, one could get more sci-fi, fantasy, drama, and comedy online than anywhere else. So yeah, anything on the web is considered reading.

    I'm not a "reading snob."

    I'll read anything, even the boring newsletter my condo ass. sends out! :eek:


    I have learned all kinds of things on here from other posters, be it silly stuff like funny names for body parts, to how corrupt this world can be.

    This place is as entertaining as a lot of things people read, it has a lot of chapters of various subjects, and characters that either piss you off or you start to care for!

    Just because I know you love me doesn't mean I'm not thrilled to hear you say it! :D
