    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...

    HAHAHA! This is me when I get disappointed at

    the end of a story/book because of my expectations on how it should end. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7In_e6_4WIk

    I am and always have been living in between the

    reality and fiction. Since reality holds a lot of pain (actual pain through my chronical diseases) and fear for a lot of things that occur unfortunately too often and at the same time, so to say that since life was what it is: A rather rough experience, I found my strength to go...

    Favorite book series: The Maze Runner.

    Read all of those books within 2 or so weeks. I just couldn't put them down. I've read a lot of amazing books, but this one takes first place. It was a good attention grabber, and the end of each chapter made me want to keep reading. No matter how much I wanted to put the book...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    And books, they offer one hope --

    that a whole universe might open up from between the covers, and falling into that universe, one is saved.

    Ever since I was a little kid I escaped into

    books.nothing could distract me more. not even my brief stint with controlled substances. It's like it carries me away and makes the real stuff seem less real.

    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

    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.

    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.

    What was it about a room lit by the purity of

    natural day light and the freedom of being home alone, barefoot? One can sit against the wall, on their bed, and slip away to The Door To December by Dean Koontz on a rainy day..Such a novel concept. The book itself was pleasant, but nothing compares to the sensation of a soft...
