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!
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...
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...
OK, folks, you asked for it, so now I'll share it.
The year was 1983. My best friend at the time, Haig, was a huge Trekkie. This was just after the Star Trek movie "The Wrath of Khan" had come out, and there was a Trek convention (actually, I ...
by Patricia Ryan and I love this book. I am adding it to my collection of books that I will definitely read a second time. I have been searching for a very long time for a particular book called 'when she was bad' but seeing all different kinds of books for it except the book I...

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...
I like real books not just reading on my ipad. My favorite books used to be Harry Potter but Im getting more into Divergent series now.
Reading allows me to escape everything sometime. I can get into another world and not have to worry about everything else.
but the problem is when I go shopping for a good book all I keep finding are those love stories or eroticas what happened to the old classics such as the art of war and moby **** ? lol ****. anyway where can I read good books online in high quality?
.. 'Just one chapter' to me is like 'just one beer' to an alcoholic...And maybe it is a similar addiction. To escape the pressure and thoughts and everything pressing in, to just forget and escape from all those things pressing on my brain, to think of something else strongly...

I am awed by the love Henry and Clare have for each other. Does something like that ever really exist irl?? Or like Noah's love for Allie from The Notebook?
I don't really think it does but it's nice to read about it.

For right now it's something to read and at least I'll know what the other...
for a long time. Dumbing Us Down by John Taylor Gatto. The book is a summary of author's observations on the education system in the USA. As a teacher with years of practise he also tries to find an alternative to it and push forward ideas buried for hundreds of years.
"'I refuse to prove that I exist,' says God, 'for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.'
'But,' says Man, 'the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED...
Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes, who has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.
