    I really wish I had more books

    that where actual stories, but I just love to sit down and read something that I know I can take and apply to life. Most of my books are either translation of ancient eastern philosophy, or history. I am seriously dying to get my hands on a book called "Guns, Germs, And Steel"

    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 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.

    Always been a big reader,

    ever since I was little. I remember reading adult books (Michael Crichton, Tom Clancy, etc.) by the time I was 12. Librarians in the public library would always ask if I was lost. Then, when I was finally ready to leave, I push one of those carts they have just LOADED with books...

    been working on. Books let me escape and help me to focus my mind on something else other than the constant waves of crashing thoughts I tend to have going on in my head. When I'm angry or upset or sad, I'll draw a hot bath, put up some candles, grab one of my books and read in...

    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!
