    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...

    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...

    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.

    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?

    Currently in the middle of the 2nd book of the

    Fifty Shades trilogy :) It's a really good story. I can't put it down. I highly recommend it. It does get sexually graphic though...

    I find comfort through literature,

    I love getting lost in things as marvelous as books. They make me forget about my own troubles, like a submarine and the sea, they submerge me so completely.

    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

    You know when you read a book,

    and when you finish you just have to sit there for a while, contemplating the book, and life in general. Three books recently have done that for me. Trouble, by Non Pratt The Perks of Being a Wallflower, by Stephen Chbosky Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger Just..wow. Such...

    Someone asked me why I don't use a kindle

    instead of reading an actual book, I couldn't be the only one who loves to actually hold a book and read until all hours at night.

    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!

    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...

    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.

    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 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?

    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.

    There is a book out there

    or a place that sells books, and I will literally sit on the floor and read a book I find interesting. Then, an employee will come to me,"Um, excuse me? Do you need any help..?" Me. "Naw, I'm..mumbles as I continue to read..**"
