    I love reading and I read all sorts. I think you can deduce things about a person from their reading list but I wouldn't judge someone on it. If they add value to my life in some way, they are in. Whether they can read or not. It is a solo hobby.
    As for partners, it is important to me that a partner can read. Mostly so that they will understand why I do and give me the space to do it.

    I'm always curious to see what's on the bookshelves of new friends and acquaintances. Now that so many people have ebooks and audiobooks, it can be hard to spy discretely. But then, most people are happy to talk about what they are reading. It's great to substitute booktalk for smalltalk whenever possible, I think.

    I am a huge Harry Potter freak. (: However, those aren't the only books I read...I actually love the classics. If my English teacher assigns it, I'll probably like it to some degree. Hell, put a book in front of me and I'm engrossed. Currently, though. I'm on an HP high. (Until my next little obsession.)

    if this is true I'm kind of a nerd...

    Mmmm...yes and no, books have different interpretations to different people. You ask one person what they get out of reading this book, the next person will give you a different response.

    We are how we've reacted to what we've been exposed to. If that makes sense, hope it does, it does in my head lol.

    What we eat today, walks and talks tomorrow.

    And just as once we start eating, we can't stop; so once we start reading, we can't stop.

    @topic: I evaluate in the sense that it may give insight into what moves someone or excites their minds or soothes them. Reading can be so many outlets.

    Or maybe they are not much of a reader, that does not mean they are unintelligent necessarily. Maybe they simply have other points of focus. There is some art and science to examining people through their stuff (yes, its on my bookshelf)

    Sometimes its not so difficult.
