    Don't tell me to use my kindle

    because I'd rather have a real book in my hands. I'd rather be able to hold the book and fold the pages to save my place and turn them when I've finished with a chapter.

    Here's a story about books

    since three years ago. When I was 12 years old, I was in year 7! I got A's on my report card for Maths, Science and History. But I only got C's for English. English was my most weakest subject! I always mumbled "ugh" when I have English next period! The reason why I was so bad...

    Dogs of War" by Frederick Forsyth. It's about a rich man who hires a mercenary to overthrow a fictional African country so he can gain access to a rich supply of platinum. This book is HUGELY detailed, and supposedly, it has been used as a manual for carrying out coups d'état...

    When I was younger, I was quite the reader.

    My favorite series was Shivers. I read all of the books in the series. It was a lot like Goosebumps. Every time I went to town with my mother, she bought me a new one. I could finish one in two or three nights. Reading is a hobby that is still with me. I now read mostly...

    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 love the YA dystopian novels.

    One lesser known but really great one is the Iron Butterfly series by Chanda Hahn. You have to overlook the editing as there are many mistakes but its a great story if you like the genre.

    Earlier today I finished the book "Rabbit,

    Run" by John Updike. Very well written book. His prose are beautiful, and has away with similes, and metaphors like I haven't read since Nabokov. However the main character of the book Rabbit, is such a piece of **** you want him to die through out just about the whole book...

    I love books - real books not ebooks

    or Kindles or tablets. I love going to the library and browsing the shelves and could spend hours doing so, if I had hours. Books help me escape the world and be happy.

    I just have to say that I hate Romeo

    and Juliet. I think Romeo and Juliet were idiotic teenagers guided by hormones into a world of obsession and eventual suicide. It's not a love story, you know? It's a story of extreme infatuation with a side of family dysfunction. I wouldn't hate it if most of society saw it for...

    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...

    No matter how many books I read,

    all the different stories and adventures, my favorite book that I love to read over and over is the The Count of Monte Cristo. With the adventure, the action, and the revenge; it's just so good.

    I'm currently reading Fifty Shades of Grey.

    I never planned on reading it, but I had a male friend tell me it was a decent read and a cute story. Half way through the first book I have to agree so far it's cute and not really what I expected. For right now it's something to read and at least I'll know what the other...
