    Confessions Of A Bibliophile

    Okay, so I'm not really familiar with this, nor very comfortable, but my therapist recommends actually talking to people, and I'm hoping y'all will be less judgmental. I started reading when I was nine with The Hobbit. Well, I guess that's a bit untrue. I read the basics before...

    Not The Textbook Teacher

    I have always loved books, ever since I was a little girl. I read a couple of books a month and still haunt libraries, bookstores and on-line book services for new treasures. Sometimes, believe it or not, that leads to trouble. In fifth grade, one of the teachers at my...

    At one time I had 8,000 books

    but halved it when I moved . I am now planning a major dispersal of my specialist books to a College Library which means I will know where they are if I want to look anything up!

    Hi, I'm Ck and I'm a Book Addict

    I cannot stop buying books.  I can't.  I think I might need some help.  If I go into a bookstore and leave without buying something, I start to have a mini panic attack.  I get all nervous and jittery.  I know that I should be proud of myself for not...

    I have a book buying problem.

    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.

    Three Degrees of Separation- by Timothy

    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 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.

    Reading a book doesn't just make me enjoy them,

    Books are fountains of knowledge,

    When reading, we don't fall in love with the

    characters' appearance. We fall in love with their words, their thoughts and their hearts. We fall in love with their souls. 🌷 I just love spending all of my time reading 😌

    Perfect Company

    Whatever my mood there's just the right book to cheer me up or make me think. If it's cold and wet outside there's just the right book to curl up under the covers with and help me drift away into a new galaxy. When I'm bored and restless there's just the right book full of drama...

    Reading

    I remember I would sit on my bed and read an amazing book all day until I was ready to go to bed. I was the Harry Potter fan BEFORE it got famous. I enjoy reading, because it takes me out of the world that I'm in. I'd feel like I'm in a deep sleep. Sometimes, I'd stop reading and...
