    I love reading! All types of books

    but there are some that you read that just draw you in. You become do absorbed in it that it feels like you coming up for air when you stop reading. You literally have to blink, look around and ground yourself in reality. Sometimes, it's the imagery a writer creates...

    I LOVED reading the Harry Potter books!

    I also have enjoyed The Hunger Games series and the Game of Thrones series. Now, though, I can't seem to find anything else that really captures my interest and feeds the imagination like those. Anyone care to share any books you thought were fabulous?

    Does fanfiction count

    as being a good book? If not, then I've just recently finished "Tricks" by Ellen Hopkins and I'm about to finish off "All the Bright Places" by Jennifer Niven at some point today.

    The Swerve: I'm reading "The Swerve,

    " by Stephen Greenblatt. It's a book about books, specifically the rediscovery of ancient books that marked the beginnings of the Renaissance. So far the book is more bitter than sweet, as I read it. I guess I see today as a time less about the furthering of learning and more...

    I read a book every couple of weeks.

    One of the thing that has defined me as being an enemy of the American people has been my tendency to read since by the time I was 5-years-old in 1976.

    I'm not sure if anyone around here likes

    anthropomorphic animals, but I just love reading Kyell Gold novels. They're mostly gay romance which pulls me in being that I'm a big hopeless romantic. Winter Games is my absolute favorite.

    Books are my best friend. They never ignore me, they always entertain me, and they are always there for me when I'm down.

    I recently read 'A Moveable Feast' by Ernest

    Hemingway, a book which I first read about thirty or so years ago. I liked it just as much this time. It is an account of his early years in the Paris of the twenties when he was a struggling writer, meeting in cafes with other now famous figures of that golden age. The chapter...

    I have read Forty Rules of Love,

    Sidney Sheldon's one of the books that was about his own life (the name slipped my mind). And a few more. I like the books which opens my mind rather than shrinking it.
