Do You Have a Reading Problem? (apologies to AA)
  1. Do you often read to relax, or to escape from your problems?
  2. Do you turn to books when you get mad at other people, your friends or parents?
  3. Do you prefer to read alone, rather than watch television with others, or go to movies, like a normal person?
  4. Does your reading habit interfere with your work or school?
  5. Did you ever try to stop reading or to read less, and fail?
  6. Have you begun to read in the morning, before school or work?
  7. Do you read quickly?
  8. Do you ever lose time? Have you ever looked up from a book to realize that the entire evening has gone by?
  9. Do you lie about your reading?
  10. Do you ever read while driving? Books on tape count, you know.
  11. Do you lose track of your surroundings when you read, even when you don't mean to?
  12. Do you think it's cool to have read a lot of books, and to be able to read quickly?
  13. Have you ever read in the shower?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, especially number 13, please call your cable company immediately. Literature is a highly destructive force, and ruins countless lives, but there is help.
