    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...

    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...

    "i Cannot Live Without Books."

    I believe the above quote is from Thomas Jefferson and such is the case with me. To me, books represent knowledge and, thus, I cannot understand why anyone doesn't like to read.

    Books

    I have always loved books and reading, right from a young age. I have a massive collection of books and some of my favourites have been read over and over again. I love the escapism of a really good story. It transports you into another world. I am usually reading 2-3 books at...

    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...

    I really got into reading

    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...

    J.G. Ballard

    I have just heard that J.G. Ballard has died. A unique writer, whose like we rarely see. I would like to think there would be proper and fitting tributes to him on terrestrial t.v., but I'm not holding my breath. Mizzen123

    Books can make you cry,

    love, smile, ect. so whats there not to love about them? My whole room smells of books and I love it. The feeling of the pages, the words that move you, it can make or break with a single word.

    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...

    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...

    I Do Like My Books...

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

    Free Time Pleasure

    I like factual books, like those about Buddhism which I'm reading, but I also like sexy books. I have the collected stories of De Sade. I also read quite scientific tomes as well.
