I like to read.
Reading by far ! I just had to pick up a mountain of books I've read to donate to the library. I have a couple of sheets of paper on my desk for months with the few things I've written.
I like to read what other people write
Writing is rewarding but reading is sheer pleasure. Both are good but reading gets my vote.
I am always preferred reading...
Reading is leisure time and requires limited imagination.
Writing is more laborious requiring the focus of your full imagination giving creative birth to your creation. It can be very fulfilling.
I prefer to write but often have the limited time to only read.
For me, i like to read. But sometimes, i perfer to write something.
Reading. I love to escape into a different world. It makes me feel free.
Reading, hands down.
Interesting question and also interesting responses. I find it telling that the one published author who has answered this question also votes for reading.
The following quote is from Wikipedia.
Perhaps this is why those of us prefer reading do so:
"Reading is a complex cognitive process of decoding symbols in order to construct or derive meaning (reading comprehension). Reading is a means of language acquisition, of communication, and of sharing information and ideas. Like all languages, it is a complex interaction between the text and the reader which is shaped by the reader’s prior knowledge, experiences, attitude, and language community which is culturally and socially situated. The reading process requires continuous practice, development, and refinement. In addition, reading requires creativity and critical analysis. Consumers of literature make ventures with each piece, innately deviating from literal words to create images that make sense to them in the unfamiliar places the texts describe. Because reading is such a complex process, it cannot be controlled or restricted to one or two interpretations. There are no concrete laws in reading, but rather allows readers an escape to produce their own products introspectively. This promotes deep exploration of texts during interpretation."
I love to read and write both because it keeps me happy and motivated.
