    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...

    i've just finished Chuck Palahniuk's "Fight

    club" and i'm pretty sure it's gonna be my table-book for the next few years.i'm really impressed.but to my dissappointment, people with whom I tried to discuss this book understood it the wrong way. "it's a book about fights, what can we discuss here?" - they said, and all i...

    Reading Hollow City the sequel to the first

    book Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. I'm going on a plane ride this weekend so i have to save my reading till then, and i can barley do it! It is such a mysterious book and it's so incredibly addictive. If you like scary plot stories, i presume you'd take a fancy to...

    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?

    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.

    Anyone ever read "After" on Wattpad?

    It's like the number one story. I've never read anything so intense in my life. Had to stop reading it cause my anger was getting out of control.

    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...

    Every book is a TARDIS,

    innocuous on the outside, bigger on the inside & able to transport you through time and space.

    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...

    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.

    I think it's time for me to convert strictly to

    Nook books. I have a few on the Nook, but 90% of my books I have in physical copies. I'm just running out of space in my room for them, plus they're cheaper on the Nook. To me, as long as I am reading them and own them in some way, then I am happy.

    Books are addicting Book Hangover When you've

    finished a book and you suddenly return to the real world, but the real world feels incomplete or surreal because you're still living in the world of the book. A goals to live a life of a girl I'd love to read a book about.:)

    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.

    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.

    There is something unique to literature in

    terms of art form. Photographs, film, and painting are visual mediums. Music and radio shows are audial mediums. Only literature uses the medium of the mind. No two people see the same room or the same face reading even the most descriptive of passages. No two people hear the...
