Reminds me of Peter Piper picking a peck of pickled peppers.

My beer intake used to be considerable, but I've cut it out of my diet completely in recent years.

If you didn't drink beer then you wouldn't drop all those books you're having to pick up.

Yep, a man with similar tastes in alcohol.  That being said, during the week (for now, at least) you'd pick up 0 books, on weekends, between Friday and Saturday a maximum of like...8, depending on the preceding week.

I'm a pretty big reader (I'd say around two or three hours per day, excluding web and work), but there is no way that I'm picking more than three books a day (maybe if the daily newspaper counts as one)...
and when I do.... It's most likely Belgo-French comics books  (I'm a little further advanced than Tintin or Asterix in that regard) 
 
BTW, although Belgian... wine or a single malt, pleaseBig smile

1-3. This goes for both books and beers. But although I am a North-of-Belgian (a.k.a. Lagerlander), a wine, whisky or wodka might please me equally.
