    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! :)

    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...

    Worming Your Way?

    I am absolutely shocked that a discussion has not been started as to what books us bookworms should read next! I have wormed my way through many, many books and am looking for the next series in which I can lose myself.   I vote we start a running commentary on what books...

    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...

    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 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!

    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

    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...

    A Good Book

    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...

    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...
