Subject: RE: BS: TV is irritating
Ron - I'd happily boast about not reading a magazine (well, a certain type of magazine) if anyone I knew would be remotely interested... they all WANT to know what Jade Goody has done, where Paris Hilton is sleeping tonight (and with what) or who's had more botox done...

I can proudly say I have never EVER bought a copy of 'OK' magazine. I relish the fact that I've never seen a copy of 'Playboy' (although I understand it usually has a couple of good articles) and I wouldn't be caught dead with 'Hello'!

There.. does that make you feel better?

If you want, I can honestly say that I've spent as much time this week reading, as I have watching TV. The advantage with a book is, if I fall asleep before the end of it, I can pick it up and read it again. Bereft of 'repeat ad nauseam TV' (Terrestrial and digital only), I'll have to wait for weeks until the CSI I fell asleep to last night is repeated.
