Watching my fourth season of Australian Big Brother I’m interested in what the housemates do to pass the time away, given that they don’t always have set tasks. One thing I’ve noticed in comparing this year’s season to last year is that I have not seen anybody read a book. Are they allowed to bring books into the house this year or is it just that nobody is a reader? I would go absolutely insane in the house, or anywhere for that matter, if I could not read. I have things to read all over the place. On the kitchen table there’s the paper from last weekend or the weekly free paper and maybe some junk mail. I have at least one book on the go in my bedroom that I read before I go to sleep. My ex-boyfriend was not a reader and he could not understand why I liked to read so he used to deride me for reading and for my choice of books (mainly thrillers).
Back to do the BB housemates read? I’m going to post to the BB forum and see if anyone can tell me.
