    Sometimes you read a book

    and it fills you with this evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book. ~~ The Fault in our Stars

    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 Love Books By Connor Fitzgerald

    Connor Fitzgerald is my favourite author. He wrote the B-Squad series of action thrillers. Each book is full of action espionage and intrigue. The premis is about a group of ordinary people selected from their Facebook profiles to fight against terrorism but there is a twist. The...

    For me, a book should be fascinating

    and attractive. If I like the book then I read. I wonder what will happen. Events in the book attract me. I find myself in the book. I feel like one of the characters in the book myself. I feel as if I'm in another world. Thus the book becomes fluent for me. So I love books.

    I'm a major bibliophile.

    I have a big collection of books and I organize them all the time. Some are specific for my field and others are to spend a nice time. I also salvage books that are being thrown out. I have many self-help which books to make the best of oneself and not because you have a problem...

    I love that feeling you get

    when you don’t remember that you’re reading. When you’re so captured by a book that you forget you’re reading the words. All you see is the descriptions and conversations that being to play out like a movie in your head. You don’t even think about it. Then before you...

    If you havent read "World War Z" then you are

    missing out. It was an incredible book! Side note, it is nothing like the movie. Which to me, is the best part

    I just finished The Breathing series by Rebecca

    Donovan. I would suggest it to anyone! It's about a teenage girl that's in a bad home situations and has to look into herself to find happiness and love. it's got a bit of love story to it. It was very well written!

    The Fault In Our Stars Last night,

    The stories we tell ourselves

    and the stories that matter to us shape who we are. Perhaps it is because Douglas Adams "Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy" is among one of the books that matter to me the most that I am such a weird person. Traveling by improbability drive totally works for me as a philosophy...

    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? (:

    I love reading. I hate it

    when a book isn't exciting within the first couple of pages or chapter. It's really hard for me to want to continue reading a book if it doesn't pull me in right away. I'm reading "Call of the Wild" for school and so far I just want to burn it.

    Or highlight. Or write in the margins. That way I can save favourite quotes or go back and re read it and find that I was correct early in about who was doing what. I also have a hard time lending books out for this reason. People don't like to read books when they have been...

    I'm an English professor

    and I've always loved books. I'm always amazed by people who don't like to read because for me, books serve as the gateway to so many things. When I finally buy/build my dream house, it's going to have a library so I can spend my free time reading in my own private space.
