Read lots of books and played outside all the time.

I had TV but still did those things. I used to be a voracious reader. Now I find it easier to listen to books, but it's not the same. I find I don't retain as much. And I have never been able to read a book from a tablet - I reserve that for news articles and the Fool. I still make time to read, but not as much as I used to. I say 8-12 a year depending on length. There's something about holding a book and turning pages.

AC *thinks the lack of reading is why there are so many stupid people in the world*
