Israeli-American Miko Peled: His beloved niece Smadar was killed by a suicide bomber in Jerusalem. That tragedy propelled Peled onto a journey of discovery. It pushed him to re-examine many of the beliefs he had grown up with, as the son and grandson of leading figures in Israel...
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.
the clear, sensuously curvaceous container, with its golden cargo, crowned with a spherical stopper, with its tapered base in intimate contact with the neck of the vessel, a vitreous phallus waiting to deprive the oleaginous content of its extra-virginity.
made of words. Hiding behind the figments of someone else's imagination, burying myself in the paper cuts that burn my skin. With each new novel I pick up it's like learning how to breathe again: there is a lot crying and screaming and usually love it once I get the hang of it
for pc and I was shocked when I seen that I had 2240 books (mostly all free also :D) on my kindle fire but I have a lot of box sets on my kindle also so I actually have way more than that. How many books are on your kindle?
.. 'Just one chapter' to me is like 'just one beer' to an alcoholic...And maybe it is a similar addiction. To escape the pressure and thoughts and everything pressing in, to just forget and escape from all those things pressing on my brain, to think of something else strongly...

"'I refuse to prove that I exist,' says God, 'for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.'
'But,' says Man, 'the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED...
and Dad were always big supporters of their kids reading, those I was the only one that really took to so totally. Probably spent more time reading the socialising at school. Prefer sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal romance, also bit of crime and thiller stuff. Visit the library...
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!
An interview with Connor Fitzgerald; author of A Brave New Squad, In Each Other We Trust, The Enemy Within and The B-Squad.

I have just finished reading "To Kill A Mockingbird" by Harper Lee. This was my first time reading this beautifully written book. It is interesting how I came across the book because, I didn't really choose it. One of my distant relatives had passed through my area last...
I love it! Books are just like i don't even know :P they're magical! They can fill you with so many different emotions and fill your head with thoughts. You start thinking that the things that have happened should've happened a different, or you picture what it'd be like to be...

Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes, who has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.
Find a girl...
OK, folks, you asked for it, so now I'll share it.
The year was 1983. My best friend at the time, Haig, was a huge Trekkie. This was just after the Star Trek movie "The Wrath of Khan" had come out, and there was a Trek convention (actually, I ...
Vonnegut and what I love most about it is that it left me peaceful. The book details horrible things as well as good but in the end I closed the book with a sense of serenity and calm which was new to me. Definitely worth a read.
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?"
