    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...

    My boyfriend gets frustrated with me

    because I "waste money on books"..I'd rather have a hard copy book that's really there that use a Kindle or something. I love my book shelf, it's like my trophy case. Reading makes me so happy and such a different person. It allows me to think about someone else's problems than...

    Primarily non-fiction,

    biographies, self-help, psychology and personal finance books. I like seeing a pragmatic return on my time investment. I don't really read for pleasure. If I was to read fiction, it would be to develop my empathy.

    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.

    Goes without saying. But I'll say it anyway -

    I'm a voracious reader. Everything from Jane Austen to Clive Barker, I have weirdly specific but nonetheless fierce passion for books. Or even storytelling in general; a movie, a video game, a knock-knock joke... if it tells a worthwhile tale, I'm in.

    I love reading! So as you guys can imagine,

    it's so frustrating that the book I'm currently into doesn't t live up to its potential and fizzles out. I want to stop reading it, but I hate quitting when I invested so much time in the character. So now I'm just rushing through it, looking for my next interesting read

    I love books entirely too much,

    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 bought an old book called "Caesar's Gallic

    War" from the used book store uptown some months back. It's almost a century old, so I keep it in a small safe in my bedroom. The book is the original Latin text written by Julius Caesar with the English translation underneath.
