    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...

    John Green “Sometimes,

    Sometimes i feel like the only way i am truly

    alive is when i am reading a book or thinking up a book to write. Life can be so depressing and lonely some times.

    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 reading Choke by Chuck Palahniuk.

    I was amazed by how well-written Invisible Creatures (also of Chuck's) and the plot was great too. Anyone else here who has read his books feels the same? And perhaps could tell me what should I read from him next or any books alike?

    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.

    every time I read books I become someone else.

    I become a heroine or a villain through those pages. I love books more than myself sometimes

    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.

    I have been in love with reading

    since I was little. I always wanted to be read to and once I started to read on my own I couldn't get enough of books. I am not a book snob and will read just about anything, but I've always liked horror the most since I first read Misery by Stephen King. If asked today I...

    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 was going through the books in my room,

    and found two that I got not too long ago, that I have yet to read. I guess i'll read these two before starting the others I recently bought. They're: "Poor Little Dead Girls" and "Asylum" Asylum is part of a trilogy - so i'll read that one last. If it's good, i'll get the...

    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...

    My entire collection was burnt in the fire

    that destroyed my home. I miss my books. It allowed me to escape. The feel of the Kindle can never replace, the turning of pages, the smells of newness or of age.- Taping the cover and dog ears... Bookmarks, highlights and many notes. I miss my books.

    I'm such a bookworm. Classics are my favorite,

    any genre. From Dracula to wuthering heights. I also enjoy contemporaries that touch my soul and make me think. A thousand splendid suns, the invention of wings. I would love to find fellow bookworms:)

    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.
