    and usually it doesn't get me down but when I see and hear people saying how much they love the new book smell or the old book smell, it makes me wish I could smell it too :(

    Lassiter is an awesome creepy and twisted book! Read it and let me know what you think! I absolutely adore Timothy and know he's gonna be the next big author when his next book comes out.

    I have more books than clothes.

    Sometimes, more than food. I absolutely love to read, and I collect books so often that I still haven't read some of them! The worst part--or is it the best?--is that I feel I have to buy an entire series when I buy the first book in it. For instance, I just finished a series...

    I like reading out loud to people.

    I should become a teacher to toddlers. When I read I read with character. Each person in the book got it's own voice and attitude. When it comes to animals forget about it. I probably make you laugh, I even do the animal sound while reading books to kids.

    Yes I am! I love how books make you feel.

    Since I was a little girl it was some kind of a escape for me - from this cruel and not very interesting reality. And of course books will make you think about all this different types of things and question your beliefs- which is good of course.

    I accumulate a **** ton of books, and I never seem to get around to reading them. I'm starting to read the stack of books faster than it's growing, so I hope it stays that way until I catch up with myself.
