    I've been getting back into my reading hobby

    after having more free time now. I been downloading so many Kindle books and iBooks on my Ipad as well as purchasing tons of used books on half.com and amazon. Lately, I have been reading a lot of nutrition science books but only the ones that go against mainstream science since...

    I have set myself a goal

    for 2015 I decided on this near the end of February. I plan to read 50 books this year. To some people that seems like a too big of an amount and to others they find it easy. For me it will be easy once I get back into the swing of reading books again. For a while I stopped...

    Tried the unusual way around.

    I never really liked reading books which I've already watched on movies but because I could really relate to this one. I find it as an exception. ☺❤

    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.

    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...

    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.

    I have just finished reading a true story

    called 'The Bite of The Mango'. It's the story of a young girl and her fight to stay alive during the rebel wars in Africa. You read the story of the horrors she faces and the trauma she experiences. It is a story of war, ethics, abuse, morality, self preservation, heart break...

    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...

    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

    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...
