    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...

    I feel more emotion for fictional characters

    than I do most people in real life.

    I've always loved books

    and reading. I take great care of every book I own, carefully breaking in the back and treating it as if it's a precious object, which it is. When I finish reading a book, you could re-sell it as new. I don't read nearly as much as I thought I would and there's no way I'll...

    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

    Unfortunately with the advent of the Kindle app

    on my phone, I dont seem to buy books any more - only the Kindle versions. A bit sad really, because I love my collection of books, but the fact is its easier to travel with only your phone / reader!

    A day in heaven for me.

    ..laying in bed, cuddled up to my sheltie. Listening to the beautiful sound of rain. And caught up in a great book. I love the blissful escape from reality. Or passionately stepping into another persons shoes. If only I could make a career out of reading:)

    Just a good story, a comfy chair,

    maybe a beverage and if I'm feeling ambitious; maybe a cupcake too. (I love cupcakes) you're not really "you" when you're reading, it's like taking a step out of your current situation and letting yourself get 100% caught up and distracted in a completely new world... I like it...

    One of my favorite quotes from one of my MANY

    favorite books! “I'm not going to wear a red dress," she said. "It would look stunning, My Lady," she called. She spoke to the bubbles gathered on the surface of the water. "If there's anyone I wish to stun at dinner, I'll hit him in the face.” ― Kristin Cashore...

    It's weird. I'm a pretty impatient person

    but I'd rather read a book for 3 days than watch a movie for 2 hours.

    We lost one of the greats today.

    Rest in Peace Terry Pratchett. He co wrote one of my absolute favorite books. "Good Omens" and "Small Gods" was hilarious.

    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...

    My classmates all ridicule me

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I am a librarian, a writer

    and adore being around books. I appreciate the binding and fonts of older books. I cringe at the stickers they now put on well bound hardbound books. I have made love in several at home, academic and art libraries.

    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.:)

    Do authors cry when they kill off the best

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