    Right now I'm reading East of Eden by John

    Steinbeck. A very good friend thought I might like it, so we are reading it together. It never would have been one of my first choices, but now I can't put it down. Hurry up, MSeigler!

    Reading Is a Lot More Than Fundamental.

    It doesn't matter where I go, I always have a book to take a long to read.  I have a device called a "kindle" that my ex purchased for me from Amazon.  I can download books to it like I download songs to my Ipod.  I am never bored on trips because I can...

    I love to read. It is one of the few true

    pleasures that I enjoy every day. My book shelf is always filled with books, and I am always looking forward to getting new books. Most people always have their cell phone in their purse, but me, I always have a book in mine!

    A Book Is Always A Constant Companion That Never Leaves My Side.

    I am always reading a book, always have one in my bag (along with a journal). Reading books always draw out emotions that I have kept submerged. Keeping a book at arms length is a requirement in my life. I read at least two books at a time, both fiction and nonfiction. Right now...

    I Always Read....

    ...the Buddhist Scriptures. There's always something in there to help me think. The copy I have is my mum's that she got given by my dad on her first day at art college. It's really old and battered, and now lives under my bed

    The Seventh Grade Refugee Book Reader

    In seventh grade I had to go to the local library to choose a book for class. After reading the book, I fell in love with books. So, when I got bullied so much I find refugee in any reading book I could get my hand on.

    I think I always will.

    I have a lot of books in my flat and I'm scared I will never finish them all or that I will never read all of the ones that are at the top of my To Read list. I'm mostly interested in modern classics and all the transgressive existential crap I'm enthusiastic about.

    Feel Lost Without One
