  1. My hubs and I are the same way! I absolutely LOVE to read, and he loves the good stories, just not so much the reading. I also read really quickly if it is something I am interested in, and he reads slowly….which totally kills me when I finish a book and want to talk about it. We discovered that the best solution was for me to read aloud while he does other things. He’ll turn on a video game, and I’ll pull out a book. It is a 4 hour trip from our house to where my family lives, so when we make the trip, I keep a book in the car. 🙂

      We do a lot of our reading in the car too! (as long as I’m not getting carsick, which does happen on occasion when I try to read).

  2. Love this! We both love reading so we often read aloud to each other. He’ll watch girly movies with me, just because I love them. 🙂 (Pride and Prejudice, Princess Diaries, that kind of movie. 🙂

      Just this week I made my husband watch the entire Anne of Green Gables saga. Next on the list is the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice. 🙂

  3. This my favorite post yet! What a blessing you two can share.

  4. Love this idea! Not sure my husband would listen to novels, but we do have many other books I would enjoy reading together.

  5. Oh wow! My hubby’s the same way! I’ve read him several books since we’ve been married. I don’t know about anything he does WITH me just because I love it. But there’s things he LETS me do just because I love it. (writing primarily) 😉
    Do you have any cures for keeping him from falling asleep while you’re reading? Evidently, what I think of as an exciting read, puts him to sleep. He totally digs long theological treatises though 😛

      *laughs* My husband falls asleep all. the. time. 🙂 No cures. We just start over at whatever place he remembers last.
