    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...

    Books versus movies: Almost every bookworm

    knows the book is better than the movie. My question is if given the choice which order do you prefer them? Do you read the book then watch the movie or watch the movie then read the book?

    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.

    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...

    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.:)

    Books are a perfect retreat.

    when i read the world ceases to exist. the worst part about books are the endings. i always feel a sinking feeling when i realise im on the last chapter or the last few pages

    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:)

    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...

    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 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.

    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 have THREE e-readers

    and 500+ books on shelves in my home (I stopped counting). I dread the day that I have to pack them up and move. It's going to be a task, but at least when I unpack I will finally have a chance to organize by genre and alphabetize by author's last name. Okay, now I'm excited!

    Nothing can beat the feel of a book in your

    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...
