    A co worker left a book

    for me while I cover her shifts for the weekend. Pretty Girl-13. I'm pretty sure this book was written for the teenage demographic, but this look has seriously got my insides all twisted up. I can't shake the feeling, imagining all those horrible things being done to such a...

    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.

    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...

    Whenever I want to escape reality I read a book.

    But when I get done I find myself missing the story line and the characters. So instead I keep my head in a book as much as I can. It helps. A lot.

    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!
