How do you like reading your manga? (or books), loudly, or to yourself?
I started reading loudly and i noticed that this way i read faster and its more fun. :) (though it feels kinda weid, haha)

How about you?

Depends. If it's a boke-tsukkomi gag manga it gets WAY funnier when I read it out loud with intonations and accents

Sometimes I read loudly and expressively, but that's just for fun. My throat gets tired pretty fast so I stop. Of course reading to yourself is a much faster way.

It takes me longer to read out loud, so no. I can do all the voices better in my head, anyway! xD

I read to myself. Reading out loud never crossed my mind. Maybe I try when I'm alone...

I usually just read to myself. My voice would get tired if I read out loud.

To myself. Although one time I read a whole volume of Guyver out loud and gave each character a different voice and tone. It was fun, but I had a sore throat by the end.

To myself, unless there's a part I don't understand then I read out loud to make sense of it.

There's no way I'd read louder if I spoke out loud xD I read way too fast and too many for my tongue to catch up like that xD Plus in my head I have the atmoshpere set and my voice would proly kinda ruin it xD I ONLY read aloud when it's a very random moment and it's like one phrase xD

I read to myself, but I do read aloud once in a while out of boredom/amusement.

Sometimes, when I'm alone, I find myself reading out loud to myself. I usually try to change my voices and read with expression to fit the characters' dialogues.

Most of the time, though, I read to myself.

No, but there are rare times were I'll read outloud if someone is in the same room. Usually my brothers, because I find fun out of annoying them. Herp.

You must read at the pace of a crippled snail, then.

Anyways, the last time I have read anything aloud is when I was 3 years old.

I'm the type that reads out loud and usually in the tone of the character speaking. Lol. When others are home, I read to myself but depending on the scene, I have often times laughed loudly, uttered a curse,or simply growled at their stupidity... Yeah I'm a bit weird lol. ^^;

When I was reading Bakuman(Before it got an anime adaptation) I used to read out loud. I'd do different character voices and everything. My family were usually away working or visiting their friends while I was at home trying to find my own Eiji voice XD

I hate reading aloud. I read fairly quickly normally, but If you were to hear me read aloud, you'd think I was only just learning how to read because I tend to stumble over words.

That's not weird. I do the same thing. You don't know how many funny looks I've gotten at school because of something funny I read.

Haha, I dunno people tend to call me weird quite often. But then that may not be solely based on me reading manga though. >.<
Oh I know the feeling. Lol. My mom is always like "I don't see how anyone can laugh so hard at a book." It can be later in the day and I'll still crack a smile remembering it. ^^

Nice topic this never even crossed my mind. I always read to myself no matter what I'm reading. It just seems like it would be kinda weird reading out loud.

Out loud when I'm pissed or want to add a bit of ridicule to a sucky drama scene, to myself if not.
