An interesting quote

To a considerable extent reading has become, for almost all of us, an addiction, like cigarette-smoking. We read, most of the time, not because we wish to instruct ourselves, not because we long to have our feelings touched and our imagination fired, but because reading is one of our bad habits, because we suffer when we have time to spare and no printed matter to fill the void.
-Aldous Huxley-
(Taken from A Book Addict's Treasury)

Kind of describing myself but I want to add one thing, at least I won't get lung cancer by this 'bad habit'.
