    What I Am Reading

    Right now I am reading the Nicholas Sparks books. I am so ashamed to admit this, because they are so girly. But no you still won't catch me watching the Notebook. I will never fall that far

    And I feel sad for people

    who don't appreciate books. Why???? There are worlds to discover when you open a book!

    Love To Read.

    I absolutely love to read, and I don't understand why other people don't. It's like a movie in your head, and you can change what it looks like.

    I'm an avid reader! If you ever happen to

    recognise me in real life, you can certainly expect to see me holding a book, regardless of the location - on the train, in a shopping mall, on a plane, etc. I actually don't get how so many people, when asked when they last read a book, would immediately refer to a book that...

    I always have more than one book on the go at a

    time. You read something which quotes an authority, so you have to read that book to get an understanding of what you read. It can be an all assuming act!

    Books Were My First Love.

    Ever since a young age, I've been reading books. I have poor eyesight because I would read at night with hardly any light. I read a lot, constantly. There are few days where I go without a book. Books allow me to forget about worries/troubles and just focus on the story...

    I read more books than I can count.

    I don't know when this started, and no one else in my family is really like this, but I read all the time. If you give me a good book I'll probably love you forever. In fact I just went to an independent book store the other day. That was a lot of fun. I spend way too much on...

    The Beauty Of Books

    When I was younger, I lived in a highly dysfunctional family. I did my best to distance myself from it. I did anything I could to get out of the house, and when that wasn't possible, I locked myself in my room. I blasted my music so I could drown out the yelling outside my door...

    My history with Books

    I have always loved to read; my love of reading may be due to the Pizza Hut book-it program, or the fact that I went to the library very frequently when I was younger. Whatever gave me my love of reading is largely irrelevant, but by 8 years old, I had been bitten by the reading...

    Not Much Better Than A New Book.

    I love to read. I can honestly say that's one thing I've brought with me into adulthood, although I never quite left the fantasy world that young adult novels brought.  I am an avid YA reader, and it takes a lot for me to put down a book I enjoy once I've really started to read...

    I started liking books

    when I was a kid. My aunt used to read children's books to me all the time, every week she brings different books for her to read, and that made me anxious to learn how to read. I wanted her to teach me because I didn't want to be isolated to the knowledge from children's books...

    A Good Book

    Worming Your Way?

    The Invasion Of Literature.

    Don't know if any of you have read my last post called 'General Bookness', but if you have then you'll know I mentioned a book named Before I Die. Quite frankly, it's amazing. I finished it yesterday afternoon and was so ridiculously swept away by it that I decided to give it a...

    Some Really Good Books

    I am an AVID booklover, and many times I find myself with a book so AMAZING, I just want to share it with the world, or burst at the seams. Now, when I try to share it, I realize many of the people I am telling don't care for books at all! So, to let this book be cherished by...

    I love reading. It’s like an escape.

    My entire life is constantly being thrown about and torn up but I can easily open a book and everything’s alright. I don’t have to be me, the worthless scrap anymore. I can be so many other people at the same time and have so many different experiences all at once and there...

    General Bookness.

    From a young age reading was one of my favourite pastimes. I'd sit for hours in my room reading every book I owned from cover to cover. When I turned six, I moved onto a broader range of children's literature - as far as I can remember, Roald Dahl was always my favourite. Charlie...

    I have actually spent entire days

    and nights reading. Going from one chapter book to another as I finish them. When I go to the library I have to get the next couple books in all the series's that in reading because I can read so fast. Good thing I can manage to go to the library once or twice a week! :)
