    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...

    Just this past weekend I went to the library

    and got 89 for 4 bucks. Right now I am reading black hawk down. I saw the movie and I hope the book is just as good.

    I love books entirely too much,

    and have such an emotional attachment to them. They give me so much comfort delving into these imaginary worlds and keeping your mind occupied and in a sense of calm & wonder! I just spent my first pay check stocking up on some books for winter, including the secret garden...

    Imagine you are floating atop a clear white

    lake, you can feel the cool brisk water beneath you. Evergreens and giant snow dipped mountains surround you....What kind of feeling does this give you? To me, it is clean and untouched happiness, unexplainable freedom. A giant crisp space to rest in. Tell me below what kind of...

    At the shop I work at,

    we have a section only of Le Petit Prince. Over the months working there, I had many tourists and people, especially elderly people (50 y-o & up) who told me how much they loved the Petit Prince. I had never read the story. I considered it a story for children or a veryyyy...

    Has anyone read The 48 Laws of Power

    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 always read when I'm upset

    or bored (which is a lot of times), it basically washes away my worries and I'm sent to another world. Time washes away too.

    Currently reading The Longest Ride by Nicholas

    Sparks...I love reading the book before I see a movie based on it. Please no spoilers! My favorite chapters are with the character Ira. Looking forward to how the story unfolds even if certain parts are predictable.

    than anything else. I can spend weeks without ever turning on the tv or radio. I have several books that I love to read and I am always looking for new ones to enjoy. I don't read romance **** novels though.

    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...

    Ive been reading this series by Charlie Higson

    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...
