    Take Me Away...

    Although I have a very high IQ, I also have issues with Attention Deficit and Hyper concentration, especially when I was younger. I swore people were speaking a different language then the one I knew. Then suddenly I would have an Eureka moment and then I could run with it. It...

    Love Books

    I have been a voracious reader and collector of books for quite a long time. I have to be reading, or have a book available to read, at all times. I don't necessarily read 24/7. I also have a pretty large collection of books, even though I've gotten rid of quite a few that I...

    I love books more than anything in my life.

    I totally lose myself into the books I read. I cry when my favorite character dies. I laugh whenever I come across something funny. And all my friends wonder about how can a book make someone cry or laugh. Maybe they'll never understand. This year I'm going to be a sort-of...

    Love To Read, Love To Write

    I started reading at an early age. I remember all the school kids reading picture books and just looking at the pictures while I read all the chapter books the school had. I guess I was a born Matilda in a way. I couldn't stop reading and read everything I could get my hands on...

    Can'T Get Myself To Care..

    Basically, I should be buried deep into my books and studying from the day break to day end if I have any hope of getting into a good college. And that wouldn't have been a problem if you had seen me a month back. But now with the exams just 10 days from now i cant get myself to...

    I Devour Books

    I go to the public library at least once a week and pick out two or three books.  Although I don't have much time to read, I can read a book in two to three days.  And I'm not a speed reader.  If I find a really good book, I can sit down over the weekend and finish...

    And I Used To Be The Friendly Neighborhood "Pusher!"

    Ahhhhh..the delight of the bookstore and the intoxicating scent of books...Row after row of tomes waiting to be appreciated and read!  (I much prefer the term "Bibliophile." It seems less malignant, don't you think?) While I enjoy modern technology, I don't see myself...

    Why Couldn't This Be Me?

    I saw this article as I was surfing the net and I have two comments for all of us that are bookworms; why couldn’t it have happened closer to us, and is this extreme overabundance of books related to the electronic books such as Kindle that are out these days? ...

    Just Get Lost

    I have a bad habit of getting lost in books. I will read one book after another for months and forget about the world around me. I usually will do this when I'm going through a rough patch in my life. It helps because I leave behind what is troubling me. But it can be bad because...

    Books Are Windows And Mirrors

    How many times have you read a book and discovered parts of yourself you never knew were there? Mirrors. I've found mirrors in my aunt's cheap paperback romance's when I was 12 and hormonal, sneaking them to an empty room and skimming my way to the dirty parts. Mirrors in the...
