Setting priorities

Where you fall in poll of U.S. reading habits

Pollyann Baird, 84, a retired school librarian in Loveland, Colorado,says J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter fantasy series is her favorite. But she has forced herself to not read the latest and final installment, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” because she has yet to file her income taxes this year due to an illness and worries that once she started the book, “I know I’d have to finish it.”

Good dog, woman! You’re 84! Should the worst happen, are you going to want to have filed your taxes or read Harry Potter?

If you don’t file your taxes, they might take you to jail, in which case you’ll have even more time to read!

I mean, really. Priorities!
