    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.

    Connor Fitzgerald Books Are Awesome

    Don't know if you have yet had the chance to read one of the books in the B-Squad series by Connor Fitzgerald but if you haven't yet sampled this hot new author you need to check him out ASAP. I've just finished reading the final book in his B-Squad series which could be...

    Reading makes me feel emotion

    when it's good. Makes me feel as though I am there. Makes me imagine everything they're telling me.

    But what's the point of being told to read a

    book by someone mid-discussion just to get their point? Now, if the book is FULL of so many interesting points and discussions, that's one thing, but sometimes a person just (lazily?) refers to a book. I like discussing with people who can think for themselves. If you can read...

    My new husband was a single child

    and lived a sheltered life. We have only been married a few weeks now, and since he comes from a religious family, we lived strictly apart until our wedding night. All that went well, so I won’t say more about it. But a couple of days after the “big night” things began to...

    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...

    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 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 joined this group,

    very happy that I found it. I am an avid reader, I will read just about anything. My favourite authors to read are H.P. Lovecraft and Eager Allen Poe. I also read a lot of the classic science fiction from the 30's, 40's and 50's.

    I was checking out a thrift store to pass the

    time and way in the back under a rack I found a box of mystery novels someone donated. The ladies running the place let me have the lot for five bucks. They should get me through a long, hard winter.

    I have books on my phone, on my kindle, in my backpack, in my car, at home, in my workshop and over 200.000 titles in my computer... I read I read I read ... and I saw that all my bad periods in life were passed with me in bed reading like a maniac :)))

    I love reading. In my spare time it is probably

    my favorite thing to do when I have the time. Some of my all time favorite books are The Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, the pillars of the earth, the girl with the dragon tattoo, and Harry potter.

    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...
