I hope you don't mind me responding to this after such an extended length of time.
I was really into philosophy for a while and read a ton of it in a very short ammount of time. I didn't really have time to read any while in college, I was much too busy doing visual research for my multimedia studies. I spend most of my time studying movies, animation, etc, and hardly read at all during my time at school, something I really regret. It may sound like it was just fun and games, but actually studying a lot of that stuff in terms of it's contextual meaning and structure was a lot of work. Of course, it actually was a lot of fun at the same time. I suppose I could have read in my free time, but I spent most of that hanging out with friends watching bad movies for fun.
It's kind of funny, when you study good movies to try and figure out what makes them good, watching bad movies is a great release, and a lot of fun as a social activity.
I recently started reading again now that I have time to, and my reading list has really grown in size and type. I'm reading a lot of journalistic war accounts (I recently finished reading Anthony Swofford's Jarhead
about being a marine sniper in the first Iraq conflict, and right now I'm reading Peter Maas' account of the Bosnian war Love Thy Neighbor
and it's absolutely heartbreaking). Up next I have </i>Don Quixote</i> and Black Hawk Down
on my reading list. But I still read a lot of fantasy/sci fi, and also have the steam punk novels, Perdido Street Station
and The Light Ages
waiting for me to begin them.
Although if I decide to go to apply for film schools, we'll see how much I read once I'm in...
