    I have a ton of books.

    I mean, literally, my books weigh about one ton. I don't have that many either; all-told about one thousand books. A number of people I know have many, many more than that. I culled my collection a few years ago, offering books to co-workers from the trunk of my car and donating...

    Books are my escape from reality.

    They're like movies that I can cast myself in. It amazes me how a book can affect me to this day.

    I've started reading Fahrenheit 451 in my

    English class. So far I love it, the characters are so me. I also think the book brings up a lot of important topics. I'll let you know how it goes once I've finished it :) What do you think of the book?

    I just finished reading Red Rising by Pierce

    Brown. At the beginning I was hating it. I usually get that feeling for all the books I start reading because I feel like they're stealing me from my previous book. But I can't sleep without reading at least a paragraph. By the middle, I was completely hooked and absolutely...

    Books are my way of escaping reality into a

    fantasy where I become more than what I can even dream to be. A good book can keep me up for hours at a time, and I'm always up for a good conversation about them. My favorite reads are fiction.

    I'm an English professor

    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.

    50 Shades Of .... Crappy Writing.

    I'm a binge reader. Books work on me like drugs.

    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...

    but my parents don't believe me. I want to go to the library but they won't take me, they don't believe I like reading. I don't believe I like reading! But some stories just catch me.

    I love that feeling you get

    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...

    Friends partied last night,

    and I was a kill-joy for not going.. I had a party of my own. Full of small giggles, full blown heartaches and book that is slightly bent from the constant pressure of it being opened. Literally read from 11 to almost about 3 ish in the morning. A book that good deserves to...

    I read the book in 3 days! It was so good. I cried during it. I can't wait to go see the movie now! It was so romantic in parts and so sad in others!

    I Love Books By Connor Fitzgerald

    Connor Fitzgerald is my favourite author. He wrote the B-Squad series of action thrillers. Each book is full of action espionage and intrigue. The premis is about a group of ordinary people selected from their Facebook profiles to fight against terrorism but there is a twist. The...

    It was totally awesome and inspiring! But the book I have now has such bad grammar, I want to throw up all over it! It's so bad! I'm very disappointed in authors who don't proof their book before publishing it and who don't even know how to use a period or commas. The only good...

    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? (:

    for as long as I can remember and my sister is the same way. We just read different types of books. My brother is the opposite. He never liked reading. He is more a video games, take-things-apart-and-put-back-together type of guy. I used to have whole collections of books but...
