    every time I read books I become someone else.

    I become a heroine or a villain through those pages. I love books more than myself sometimes

    Just bought Erin Morgenstern's novel "The Night

    Circus". I'm a sucker for a book written by an author who knows how to properly use the art of imagery. I read the excerpt before I bought the book and I liked the author's play on words. "The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it, no paper notices on...

    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.:)

    Every book is a TARDIS,

    innocuous on the outside, bigger on the inside & able to transport you through time and space.

    Currently reading Choke by Chuck Palahniuk.

    I was amazed by how well-written Invisible Creatures (also of Chuck's) and the plot was great too. Anyone else here who has read his books feels the same? And perhaps could tell me what should I read from him next or any books alike?

    Do you ever finish a book,

    and realize everyone is carrying on with their lives as if you didn't just experience emotional trauma at the hands of a paperback?

    Do authors cry when they kill off the best

    characters? Or do they smile, laugh and have a cup of tea with Satan?

    I have been in love with reading

    since I was little. I always wanted to be read to and once I started to read on my own I couldn't get enough of books. I am not a book snob and will read just about anything, but I've always liked horror the most since I first read Misery by Stephen King. If asked today I...

    Someone asked me why I don't use a kindle

    instead of reading an actual book, I couldn't be the only one who loves to actually hold a book and read until all hours at night.

    I was going through the books in my room,

    and found two that I got not too long ago, that I have yet to read. I guess i'll read these two before starting the others I recently bought. They're: "Poor Little Dead Girls" and "Asylum" Asylum is part of a trilogy - so i'll read that one last. If it's good, i'll get the...

    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.

    As a reader, I got to show my respects

    and share my sadness on the death of Gunther Grass and Eduardo Galeano. Both authors I enjoyed reading. Grass book, "the tin drum" and Galeano's "the open veins of Latin America" were both favorites. Both authors died on Monday, April 15 as a big coincidence. May both...

    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...

    Reading has been one of my favorite past times

    since I was a young child. I could live in book stores, I loved reading so much. In recent years I've gotten away from it, as my interest in the internet has grown. So, I think for this year I am going to take the 2015 Reading Challenge and read a book a week from the following...
