The same but that's only because reading can be more entertaining, unless the book is terrible or doesn't go the way you want it to.

Did you seriously ask that?? I would never in my life be able to choose! writing gives me things to think about and things that are truly my doing, and reading... I am pretty sure if I stopped reading i would die!!!!

This poll is from 2011, it's really supposed to be locked. I'm just pointing it out so nobody else posts and angers the supervisor people.

Why must we not anger them? It's NOT locked, let's have a posting party

Both. I like them both the same.

Probably reading, it gives me ideas with my stories and I can just pretend I'm at Hogwarts
or trying to figure out Gollem's riddles with Bilbo!

I spend a lot more time reading but I do enjoy writing too.

I agree with Jordan on this. She is right; writing cannot exist without reading and vice versa.

I like them about the same because, in my opinion, who could like one better than the other?
