    Soooo Much!

    Today my local library had this book sale of used books. You buy a five dollar bag and you get to fill it up with as many books as you can. I was so happy, and I found sooooo many awesome books! I was beaming afterwards. I am creating a library for myself and my future kids. I...

    How I Cope

    I read to escape. To lose myself in someone else's story. I live vicariously through my books. Hundreds of experiences all tucked away onto one bookcase... well three.

    Real Books

    Will be buying the first

    and only edition of Johanned Stuttgen's "Der ganze Riemen" or 'The whole belt'. I know the author personally and will be pleased when finally able to read the book. Pretty expensive, but important to me and culture in general :)

    I Love Books

    I FREAKING LOVE BOOOKSSSSSSSSS They help me escape from my horrid and abusive life. Not enough good things can be said for these packages of knowledge, wisdom, truth, fantasy- whatever form they may come in. Big or small, I love them all. (That was an unintentional rhyme)

    Someone once said to me. Buy yourself a kindel. You'll get all your books on it plus many more. You can change the font and the brightness of the page and you can take it anywhere. And using theirs I can see they have a point. But you cannot duplicate the feel of the page or the...

    Do not get me wrong. It's not like I'm constantly stealing books. I steal old books mostly. It's just that if I read a few pages and love it I'll steal it if I know I won't find another copy soon enough before I find another book. I always say that a book is not worth reading...

    '"Huh?"I asked. "You spend your whole life

    stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you'll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present." I guess that made sense.'

    naive young lady who only spends her days waiting for her Prince Charming to appear, but the romance novel What a Lady Most Desires by Lecia Cornwall broke that stereotype for me. I can now see why it was rated 4 1/2 stars in the Barns & Noble reviews. Now I want to read more...
