    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.

    hard covers are my favorite.

    the feel and the weight along with a nice dust jacket make reading a much more enjoyable experience. sure a book is a book but a hard cover is much better. I think itd be awesomenif somenof stephen kings books got released as hard covers again.

    My Favorite 'Another Roadside Attraction' by

    Tom Robbins, is hands down, my all time favorite book. It is now dog eared, and well used, and once a year, I come back to visit her like an old friend. There are very few books in my library that I've read more than once, finding the bulk of them rather predicable and mundane...

    I Love The Smell Of Books!

    There is nothing like the smell of books, both new and old. I swear every time I am reading a book, I hold my nose close to the pages and inhale. I find the smell comforting and reminds me of my happy reading days. I also like the feel of the paper. I always run my fingers over...

    To Kill A Mockingbird

    It was like Mark had lost his.

    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!

    Sitting down and reading

    for hours is one of my favorite things to do. I just love immersing myself in stories, and traveling there in my own mind. It's like exploring, but you can go anywhere any time you want without any restrictions or rules.

    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.

    once I start a book, I cannot stop it. I may stop to do things I absolutely need to do, like eat or shower but I will spend all of my time reading that book until I am finished. And then I'm just really sad that it ended. Lol.

    Anyone here read John Dies at the End?

    It's a mix of demented, hilarious and sneakily poignant. It is not a highbrow philosophical book, but man does it nail human behavior. It's a book l rarely recommend and then always with warnings and disclaimers because I think the author may have written it while doing a meth...

    So, I never got in to the movies,

    and never read the books. However, someone at work brought a bunch of books in and left them on a table in the lunch room. I saw that Twilight was one of them. So I grabbed it, and although it's very unrealistic, I'm reading it and it's a pretty decent book.
