Hey, Mark I saw that you're reading a book out there.
Yeah, that's right.

Seriously, I only read.
Wow, how many books do you get through a week?
A week! Ah, at least one a week, because I work all the time.
Oh, that's pretty good.

on the trains when I'm reading, they look over at my book.

That's cool. I love to read on the trains.
