    You know how guys will see a girl at a bar

    and buy them a drink? Why can't there be a thing where a guy notices me eyeing a book at a bookstore and buys it for me? That would definitely win me over. I cannot handle using a kindle or "flipping" the pages on an ipad screen. I love books for the pure experience. The smell...

    My passion for reading began at a young age.

    In fact, as soon as I was able to grasp and understand words my fascination for them grew. The idea of being a librarian never occurred to me, the thought of working in a little book shop tucked away in a turning on a London street did. It didn't happen of course, life got in...

    Books are my escape from reality.

    They're like movies that I can cast myself in. It amazes me how a book can affect me to this day.

    I Was A Librarian.

    There's no other experience like it for me. I love the feel of the pages and the cover. I love how many different styles of writing the authors have. It's amazing to read a book and feel like you're standing right next to the characters the whole way. My mind makes up these...

    I love The Shining and Doctor Sleep.

    I love how they deal with the supernatural but have issues that are very close linked to the world we live in . Jeffery Deaver's bone collector is also great.
