Back when I was a yungin' I read books all day. Now let me stop, cause I'm 18. But basically, you couldn't catch me without a book under my nose everyday. Now, I'm always reading, always checking out books, and if I'm not working I'm reading at work for break. I usually go on binges and when I'm book binging, I can burn out a good 350-400pg book in 2-3 days, work included, and burn through about 4 in a week. I don't have many favorite authors, I usually go in a library and walk through the aisles and always walk out with at least one book by someone I know and two by random authors but because it looked decent. Hell, during the last month of school I was in both the schoolslibrary and the city library at least once a week. I read so many books I honestly lose track of what I'm supposed to be turning in and whats do or not.
Don't get my wrong, I do other things. I also write stories, poetry and short stories typically, but I work out at the gym a lot as well cause I gotta keep in shape (and the money I'm spending is great motivation when all else fails). I work, I hang out, I'm not a nerd or a good kid (no, I sometimes cause trouble for fun), and I can be a rebel. I'm not a completely bad kid, but I'm not good either. But I've been told, however, that my reading addiction is really nerdy and a turn off as well as a sign that I'm a loner with few friends (which I can be). By few girls, I've been told the opposite. So I'm coming here to see what you ladies think on GaG. Is it a turn off or something is a guy admittedly reads a lot?

It all depends on what kind of girl you are talking about. If you are into one of those outdoorsy adventurous girls then they will probably find you boring.
But a lot of girls who are also into books and reading will be really glad to talk to you. It's always fun to exchange opinions with someone who has read the same stuff and knows as much as one does! ;)0
