    Books are an investment.

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

    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...

    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...

    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 love to just escape reality with a great book.

    You can go anywhere and be anyone , from a brave warrior to a damsel in distress. You can battle terrible monsters on an exciting quest and you don't even have to leave your house. Books give excitement and wonder to my full monotone life and for that I'm extremely grateful to...

    I literally read a book a week.

    I sound so crazy! But I absolutely love reading. Also, if you've never heard of it try out goodreads.com, it is an excellent site to help find new books and honest reviews!

    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...

    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...).

    To choose a book in my own private library,

    to curl up with it without being disturbed by other persons and to forget the reality completely while reading - I like that. :-)

    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

    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.

    My daughter passed down her old kindle to me

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

    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...

    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.

    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.

    My collection of books got

    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.

    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...

    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.
