    Do authors cry when they kill off the best

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

    I've got 5 books I'm reading at

    once including the Holy Bible. Two of the books are really short. And a normal sized novel I'm reading has almost 400 pages I've been reading since June 2015. It takes me a long time to read and ponder over books, but I love them and sometimes re read sentences because I want to...

    I get taken to this whole other world

    when I am reading a book, I get completely engulfed and I love it. It takes me away from any problems or any stress. Books just make me feel better, keep me interested and make me a dreamer. I don't understand when people tell me that they don't enjoy reading books.

    One of my favorite books

    that I have read is "The African Queen". Sure, the story is a bit dated and yes, I know they made it into a movie in the 50s...but there is something about that book that kept me glued and made me read through it and unable to put it down.

    My new year's resolution is to read more books.

    Last year I maybe read 5. This year I want to at least do double that. I read several books at once and alternate between them and it takes me months to finish one.

    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?

    Growing up I could spend whole days just reading

    and immersing myself in the world of Jane Austen, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Isabelle Allende, Paulo Coelho... haven't done it as much these past 2-3 years. I sure do miss it.

    I love books more than people

    because people will hurt you one day. But books will make you forget all the problem.

    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...

    I prefer books any day to those silly little

    e-books. I don't see the point of them. They can never replace the feel, smell & calmness of a real book.

    Books are such lovely things.

    Portals to fascinating universes. I probably wouldn't survive for very long without them.

    I just finished reading today "Sinsajo",

    the spanish translation for "Mockingjay". Never got to see anything from "The Hunger Games" before, and I must say I got delighted with this one. We can find themes such as war and peace, friendship, sacrifice for a common goal, and of course, everything set in a credible future...

    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.

    some books so yesterday, since it's payday, I decided to go to my favorite secondhand bookstore and treat myself. I spent an hour or more inside the store that the saleslady probably think I'm sort of crazy or that I am going to rob or shoplift. Haha! No, I am not like that. I...
