    books are an amazing refuge

    The map and the territory- Michel Houellebecq.

    Houellebecq is really an enfant terrible. Just a few days before the killing at Charlie Hebdo he presented his new novel, which happens in a near future when an islamist party has taken power in France. So controversial,but above all so contemporary. Balzac for the 21st century...

    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 wish more people understood

    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? (:

    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'll put off buying a kindle

    for as long as possible. Books have a kind of magic technology can't replace - Opening a book is like opening the wardrobe doors of Narnia.

    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.
