    One of my favourite opening lines to a book is

    "It was a queer sultry summer, the summer they executed the Rosenburgs, and I didn't know what I was doing in New York" Guess which book it's from without cheating :D

    "You are not you--you have no body,

    no blood, no bones, you are but a thought. I myself have no existence; I am but a dream--your dream, a creature of your imagination. In a moment you will have realized this, then you will banish me from your visions and I shall dissolve into the nothingness out of which you made...

    I got 5 new books so far.

    :) 3 of which are part of a trilogy and 2 are just random novels. They're all fantasy, considering my number one favorite genre is fantasy. I enjoy horror and thriller too, but the only really good books in that genre that I have read are mainly from Stephen King. anyway...

    Do authors cry when they kill off the best

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

    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...

    Everyone read Joe Hill.

    He is Stephen King's son, and he writes horror, but he really has a unique voice, separate from his father. He has 3 novels (Heart-Shaped Box, Horns, Nos4a2) and I literally read them all within days of purchasing them. He also has an anthology of short stories. Read him!

    Over the past two weeks I've been reading,

    The Dark Heroines and I've been amazed at how much I love the writing, the plot, the character development and the romance of course. I don't normally read physical books that often but with this one, it was instant love.

    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...

    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 were my first love.

    I've been borrowing and reading library books all my life. I just couldn't afford to buy and store all the books I want to read. Luckily, lots of free ebooks have come online, and I now read them on my tablet. I can't relax with my phone or computers switched on, but I can...

    It has been months since the last time I bought

    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...

    and a steaming cup of coco. One of my favourite books is the "The breadwinner" I forgot who wrote it- I read it as a child. It's about a young girl who has to take on her families responsibilities, because of the Taliban. It's extremely eye opening to the fact that many...

    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.

    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.
