Do you spend more time reading comics or regular books?

These days I tend to read comics almost exclusively, partly because I really enjoy comics and partly because my time is short and I like a quick read. I do enjoy regular books (for lack of a better term) but find little time to read them these days.

Pretty much stopped reading comics... well, NEW comics, I should specify. I'll pull out an old graphic novel or TPB collection every now and then. Otherwise, there are way too may books out there to tackle on my to-read list.

I can't remember the last time I read a novel. Read them a lot thru high school and college, but I bet I've only read two or three novels in the last 20 years. Nonfiction books, maybe 10 a year. Comics, 5-10 a day.

I've only been reading comics lately; with smaller kids it's hard to focus on a novel and I prefect the visual orientated story telling of comics.
