    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! :)

    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...

    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...

    A Good Book

    I was having one of those days.  I felt very down about myself and felt that there was nothing good about me or the situations I have put in.  So I was going through my shelves looking for something to read to kill some time and I found Please Stop Laughing at Me and...

    I'd rather spend my night reading a good book

    and drinking a cup of warm chocolate rather than go out and party

    I am very much a bookworm

    and have been so since my early childhood days. I love to read multiple books at a time. From my readings I am well informed in many areas of life. I am currently reading books about religion, real life celebrities; alive and dead, and a book on American history.

    Some people in my English class have no idea

    what the play of Romeo and Juliet says. They think it's super complex, when it's really the easiest thing ever to me.

    I couldn't pinpoint which book I liked the most.

    I love adventure, historical fiction, science fiction, romance or fantasy. But I'd say the book I really love was my own, the ones I have written. Well, I am not yet an author of any published book (but if you count some on online sites maybe yeah). But I l like my own. It's my...

    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 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...

    Reading is so therapeutic.

    I love, love, love getting lost in a good book! I read everywhere--planes, trains, cars, beds, chairs, benches, mountains, deserts, beaches, cities, farms, pools, jacuzzis, tubs, backyards, front yards, parks, roofs, basements, attics, garages, sheds, everywhere!

    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.

    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

    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...

    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...

    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 can get lost in the pages of an artist's

    imagination. Yes, writers are artists too, but of a different element. They have an understanding of words and how to pair them together so as to seem effortless and beautiful. They draw their readers in through their art of creative persuasion. I admire their talent.

    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...

    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 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!
