    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.

    Books fill my days. Not to mention my bedroom,

    dining room, living room and my closet.

    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'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...

    I am currently reading 'Rebecca' by Daphne du

    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 always read...it's like an obsession.

    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 :)))

    Hate it when this happens .

    .. I borrowed John Grisham's book The Testament from a co-worker. When I saw her in the hall this morning, I told her I would return the book tomorrow. She assumed that I finished, but I haven't. Before I could stop her, she described the final plot twists. Ugh! I hate when that...

    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 love books entirely too much,

    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...

    Jean Louis Fournier is one of my favourites.

    Translated into multiple languages. Very sober, humble, never ever asking for sympathy. He writes like a child which is deceptive. He writes about tragedies, real ones with a dry humour, he writes about his life. He writes simple without any ego. Yes he has an ego. Very...
