How does your being sick (or injured) affect your reading? Do you read more? Less? Do you pick out a different book than you had already planned? Do you have a "comfort book" that makes you feel better?
Hmmm, this question really made me think. As an adult i don't get ill very often, cough and colds that other people get seem to pass me by, which is a good thing! I did recently have a kidney infection though which left me alternating between being in excruciating pain and away with the fairies when the painkillers were working! I read a lot during this time because I couldn't move very far or very fast. What I actually did was re-read Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles because I couldn't concentrate on anything else. I didn't think much about this at the time but thinking back now, it was probably a world I could get lost in without too much effort because I've read them before.
As a child I was occasionally ill, and would spend most of the time wrapped up on the sofa. But I did have specific books I would read then. It was always Mallory Towers by Enid Blyton, or Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild. These were my favourite childhood books so this was obviously jut escapism or easy reading!
