    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?

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Do authors cry when they kill off the best

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

    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!

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.:)

    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!

    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:)

    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

    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.

    Every book is a TARDIS,

    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...

    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...
