and it fills you with this evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book. ~~ The Fault in our Stars
I know that I sound like one of those crazy people that would rather chop down millions of trees to make a couple books than use something free and renewable; but ebooks are seriously not a good replacement! They really don't take the place of the feeling a good book can give you...
and I've always loved books. I'm always amazed by people who don't like to read because for me, books serve as the gateway to so many things. When I finally buy/build my dream house, it's going to have a library so I can spend my free time reading in my own private space.
I just love books! My favorite must be The Da Vinci Code, I just love mystery and Dan Brown! I also enjoyed classics from Jules Verne and adventurous books from J.K. Rowling. Random and wide, but I love all kinds of books!
and appreciated books in the manner that I do.
I can't imagine a world without other worlds to visit to by a turn of a page.
Planning on going to the library later today. Does anyone have any suggestions on my next big read? (:
I love to read, yes. But I love the books themselves. I have no desire to read from electronic media even though (or perhaps because) my career involves computer software analysis and development.I love seeing books lining the walls in my shelves and stacked up...
No one would ever guess for some reason. It's funny.
Anyway..Currently I'm reading two books.. 'The Hobbit' which I'm sure everyone knows about. I've had it for a while but I forgot about it, and I keep getting told that the book is better than the film so, yay, I'm reading the...
when you don’t remember that you’re reading. When you’re so captured by a book that you forget you’re reading the words. All you see is the descriptions and conversations that being to play out like a movie in your head. You don’t even think about it. Then before you...
The life I lead now that I have written about is not how I have always lived.
From childhood I have always loved books, reading and writing, so when I left school I studied and got a Diploma of Information and Library Studies and became a librarian. It was the perfect job for me...
When I delve into a good book I'm instantly teleported into a totally different sphere I don't want to get out from. A sometimes pleasurable, sometimes magical, sometimes even painfully tragic other world. A world I like escaping to from my uneventful, routinised grossly...
and read them! I read too fast for my own good and finish everything I get within a day of getting them. But that just leaves more time for me to read even more! I just finished the first Divergent book the other day and watched the movie and they were so good.
as well! :)
Well, I often imitate the style of Victorian women or men.
I love Jane from Jane Eyre
I pity Edgar Linton from Wuthering Heights
I once wept for Sydney Carton
I value Charles Darnay's love for Lucie
My heart aches when I read how the minister suffered by the scarlet...
My list is a mix of new and exciting thriller action mixed with a classic and then some naughty bedtime fun, if you haven't read these five books in your life then you haven't lived a life;
1. The Enemy Within by Connor Fitzgerald
2. In Each Other We Trust by Connor Fitzgerald
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...
Heavenly Fire. I cried last night and I wouldn't stop reading until I crashed. It just affected me so much. Sometimes you find things in books that you didn't even know mattered to you. I am still sad. And still want to cry. But I'm also happy.
favorite series. I have been reading them since 4th grade and have read it dozens of times since then. J.K Rowling made something absolutely fantastic. I wish Hermione was real. Smart chicks are hot. And smart witches? Forget about it. I'd kill Ron.
some kind of book club on EP. We would like to be able to get many others who wish to discuss all types of genres and specific books and series. If this is something that would interest you please comment or message me. Thank you.
