    "You are not you--you have no body,

    no blood, no bones, you are but a thought. I myself have no existence; I am but a dream--your dream, a creature of your imagination. In a moment you will have realized this, then you will banish me from your visions and I shall dissolve into the nothingness out of which you made...

    Sometimes i feel like the only way i am truly

    alive is when i am reading a book or thinking up a book to write. Life can be so depressing and lonely some times.

    This book completely changed my life.

    I just recently read the book/autobiography "Forever Today" by Deborah Wearing. It's a true story about Deborah and her husband Clive. In the 80s he became ill and a majority of his hippocampus in the brain was destroyed- leaving him almost completely without memory, and even...

    Has anybody read Go Set a Watchman?

    What did you think? I'm not sure I understood it completely. It was okay but definitely not as awesome as To Kill a Mocking Bird.

    Books are beautiful. I think of them

    as if someone mixed thoughts, memories and speech in a big jar and out came a book

    Books are such lovely things.

    Portals to fascinating universes. I probably wouldn't survive for very long without them.

    I've never really understood

    why some people have a dislike of reading. It's becoming almost a lost hobby because living in an age where technology and computers take up most of our time, the beautiful art of reading and writing has been replaced by brain cell killing video games. Why not learn to pick up a...

    I got 5 new books so far.

    :) 3 of which are part of a trilogy and 2 are just random novels. They're all fantasy, considering my number one favorite genre is fantasy. I enjoy horror and thriller too, but the only really good books in that genre that I have read are mainly from Stephen King. anyway...

    Books were my first love.

    I've been borrowing and reading library books all my life. I just couldn't afford to buy and store all the books I want to read. Luckily, lots of free ebooks have come online, and I now read them on my tablet. I can't relax with my phone or computers switched on, but I can...

    I never seem to get over a feeling

    when your favorite series/book ends. It's some sort of quiet yearning to know more, to know everything that happens to your favorite characters.

    Books are addicting Book Hangover When you've

    finished a book and you suddenly return to the real world, but the real world feels incomplete or surreal because you're still living in the world of the book. A goals to live a life of a girl I'd love to read a book about.:)

    just reading books. Whether it's non fiction or fiction (which I prefer) i just seem to always get lost in the book and then can never put it down. I am recently reading the maze runner series which some of you have heard from the movie. I really recommend the book if you like...

    It has been months since the last time I bought

    some books so yesterday, since it's payday, I decided to go to my favorite secondhand bookstore and treat myself. I spent an hour or more inside the store that the saleslady probably think I'm sort of crazy or that I am going to rob or shoplift. Haha! No, I am not like that. I...

    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...

    Nothing can beat the feel of a book in your

    hand..the smell of the pages when you open a new one. When I buy preowned books I just leaf through them, looking for little secrets left between the pages by previous owners. Years ago, I owned a big house with a library room where I stashed and stacked my books. When I...

    The one thing that sucks about Nooks

    and Kindles... Is that you need to charge them in order to use them. So, I need to stop reading to charge it. :(

    After having my daughter I wasn't able to

    really read anything because of how much energy it takes to care for her. She's 2 months now and today I was finally able to get some reading in without being exhausted! I feel so good to be able to do something for me.

    Grab the book you're currently reading,

    sit by the window while it is snowing, brew some hot coffee, get some toasted bagels, cuddle yourself in a blanket, light some scented candles and bam, it turns into heaven.

    Over the past two weeks I've been reading,

    The Dark Heroines and I've been amazed at how much I love the writing, the plot, the character development and the romance of course. I don't normally read physical books that often but with this one, it was instant love.

    I love curling up in my bed with a good book

    and a steaming cup of coco. One of my favourite books is the "The breadwinner" I forgot who wrote it- I read it as a child. It's about a young girl who has to take on her families responsibilities, because of the Taliban. It's extremely eye opening to the fact that many...

    for reading more books rather than watch movies with them. But I don't mind. Those idiots can't differentiate a book from a magazine. I'm comfortable with what I'm doing and I won't change reading for them. It hurts, but fictional characters taught me to be who I am and just be...
