    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...

    Sometimes I read to much.

    .. '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...

    4 authors that set my reading habits : CS Lewis,

    J RR Tolkien, Isaac Asimov and Frank Herbert. Without these creative geniuses I wouldn't love reading or writing as much as I do now.

    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 just downloaded "A Dirty Job" by Christopher

    Moore. I figure it's time to rest my brain with some quick wit, humor, and absolute hilarity and Mr. Moore is just the one to oblige. If you have never read his books I highly recommend him. "Lamb" and "The Stupidest Angel" are fabulous...I'll keep you posted on this one...

    The Asimov Story

    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 ...

    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.

    I totally agree to this.

    "People who do not read the Bible should not quote it for matters of proving points. I wouldn't think to quote the Book of Mormon, the Tipitaka, the Ramayana, or anything else I have not read to prove my points, for I would surely make a fool out of myself, and misrepresent the...

    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 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...

    or fluff novels. I'm not one for damsels in distress waiting for a hero to save them. I like when the damsel saves herself. I have enjoyed select series by Sylvia Day, Shayla Black, Lexi Blake and Kristen Ashley, so I'm not completely opposed to what's deemed "chick-lit." The...

    I love books so much.

    They are an escape from the real world. All the crap we have to deal with on a daily basis is unreal sometimes. Books help me get through my life by looking at theirs. In books I can imagine the impossible, magical worlds, flying creatures. It's just so beautiful

    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...
