    I absolutely adore books!

    I could ready through day and night, I love to read snuggled up in bed, on the train or lying in the grass with the sun shining down. If I have my nose in a book I am usually one happy girl.

    Thought This Was Worth Sharing

    A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?" "Because I'm a woman," she told him. "I don't understand," he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, "And you never will." Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?" "All women cry...

    I would like a book recommendation.

    I want to read something about a post-apocalyptic world but no zombies. Also, I'm looking for something meant for adults. I've read: - hunger games - divergent - the enclave - red rising

    I hate how the television has taken over

    so many lives. I much prefer to curl up with a good book. I feel reading stirs the imagination much more than tv. I also enjoy the solitude and inner reflection that comes from reading.

    Sometimes I read to much.

    I Especially Adore Audiobooks.

    Chores go faster! Hands-free! Classics and physics and metaphysics... it is a smorgasbord, a cornucopia of wealth. Amazing variety of experiences in autobiographies, amazing amount of speculation in biographies. Spectacular variety in religions. Love it!

    ever since I was a kid. Even books in school that we had to read, I enjoyed, such as "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and "Treasure Island". Right now I have about five books I am in the middle of reading!
