    I've loved reading ever

    since I was a kid. Terry Goodkind used to be my favorite author, but his work seems a little forced now. I'm the type of person who has to take my Nook with me whenever I travel so I can read my latest purchase.

    I love to read. I guess is something i grew up

    with. My parents would read to us all the time. We didn't have much growing up, so getting a book from the library and reading out loud was a way to have family time! to this day we still try to do that. So, even though i didn't grow up with a house full of books I was still...

    Escape

    I've often used books to escape the cruelty of life. Its a way to get away from everything I hate, a way to be someone else. I'm an empathetic person and it really makes me get involved in stories. My favourite book is Green Heart, because I connected so much to the main...

    The burning of a book is a sad,

    sad sight, for even though a book is nothing but ink and paper, it feels as if the ideas contained in the book are disappearing as the pages turn to ashes and the cover and binding--which is the term for the stitching and glue that holds the pages together--blacken and curl as...

    Reading is a way to escape this life into

    another's (unless you are reading an article... Oh the struggle!!!). And at the end of the reading you are not the same person as you were in the start (It is cliché.. I know...).

    Stranger

    I love meeting new people because I like to listen to their story. I find people all have a story and I want to know it. I like to write very much and each person I meet is like a new inspiration for me. I like to weave stories and think about the past... because its a part of...

    Stephen King is the ultimate king of all horror

    and I LOVE him!! But lately I'm very interested in Shakespeare and his words swim within my soul and creates emotions that can't be explained in words. I also bought myself an Oscars Wilde book. I love his quotes... but I basically read almost anything.

    Books are an investment.

    Reading is a good exercise of the intellect. I read for school, I read for pleasure.

    I'm a slow reader though.

    . I love profound articulate words.. to go back to the line before an interesting line just to inhale the anticipation of meeting the interesting line and repeat it until the words sink in my heart is the reason why I am such a slow reader.. oh but I won't pour myself in a book...

    I Do Like My Books...

    I even like looking at books sitting on a shelf, or packed in a box, or a bag.  I get a mini-buzz just seeing them sitting there, waiting for my attention.   I don't know, there is something satisfying about seeing your collection of books grow and all the empty space on the...

    so we can read novels at the same time and discuss them. I raised her well.

    Well I study literature

    so I kinda have to? You would find anything in my little 'library'. Goethe, Schiller, Kleist and all these famous (boring) german authors. Favourite book yet is 'Cloud Atlas' by David Mitchell. I'm also a huge fan of Ray Bradbruy :3

    If you're in to fantasy (not the erotic type)

    go read some of Brent Weeks' and Patrick Rothfuss' stuff. I can assure you they are brilliant authors.

    For years - honestly

    as long back as I can remember, teenage years, I've had a novel I'm reading. So many books you can never run out. Used to be a lot of fantasy and sci fi, esp funny like Discworld and Douglas Adams. Then more historical novels, Bernard Cornwell, Simon Scarrow etc. A lot of...

    Books have stood the tests of time.

    Reading is to exercise the mind and the spirit. Combine the two whoever you can and grow as a human.

    I LOVE books and reading

    so much. Funny part, I used to hate reading when I was younger. Mostly when I was forced to. Then I got to junior high and I began loving books. I remember I used to LOVE the Cirque du Freak books. They were just amazing... I couldn't ever get into Nancy Drew though. I...

    so big that, my fiance made me stop bringing them home. I love anything from James F Cooper to Richard Matheson. Some people will tell me that print is dead,and to get with the 21st century,but I refuse to accept that.

    Words

    Words are my thing, my life. I can't get enough of them. I collect books, and people think it's strange. I've started a little library in my basement, and I've collected around three hundred books so far. I love spending dreary days reading them over and over again. People think...

    as a teenager, and always have a book that I am reading now. I really enjoy reading alot in the winter time, when it is too cold to go outside. My favorite author is Terry Brooks, and some of his books I have read numerous times. I also enjoy reading Anne McCaffrey, and Piers...

    that keep me (fairly) calm. I'm always reading at least half a dozen on the go! I mostly read on my iPad at the moment because I have hundreds of books downloaded on it. :)
