    I absolutely adore books!

    I could ready through day and night, I love to read snuggled up in bed, on the train or lying in the grass with the sun shining down. If I have my nose in a book I am usually one happy girl.

    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!

    I find it difficult to choose a book

    which is my favourite. Favourites change depending on the mood or interests at the moment. But I do remember books that had an affect on me at different periods in life and like to revisit them from time to time.

    My favorite author is Charles Dickens

    The Coat I have always loved a certain coat.

    It protected me from a lot of things. It gave me warmth. It gave me a sense of security. It felt wonderful. Then I discovered a new coat. It makes me feel secure much more than I ever felt with the older coat. It fits me a bit better than the other coat. It has a surprising...

    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 love the fact that it can literally take you to a whole different world. Sometimes we all just need a break from this world and a good book can do just that. I read a lot and there are books that have simply given me a break from reality and then there are those books that...
