I Love Books

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 73,738 People

    I read at least 4 books a month.

    I just love books! My favorite must be The Da Vinci Code, I just love mystery and Dan Brown! I also enjoyed classics from Jules Verne and adventurous books from J.K. Rowling. Random and wide, but I love all kinds of books!

    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.

    I do think I should donate some of my books.

    It's horrible, I know, but my bedroom has stacks of books all over the place.

    Books are my way of escaping reality into a

    fantasy where I become more than what I can even dream to be. A good book can keep me up for hours at a time, and I'm always up for a good conversation about them. My favorite reads are fiction.

    I'm a closet book nerd.

    No one would ever guess for some reason. It's funny. Anyway..Currently I'm reading two books.. 'The Hobbit' which I'm sure everyone knows about. I've had it for a while but I forgot about it, and I keep getting told that the book is better than the film so, yay, I'm reading the...

    I am officially a book bachelor.

    I read so many books, put my favorite in a pile to get into another time, and throw away those that I only want to read once. But I could never marry just one book. No such thing as book monagomy.

    Sometimes when I read a book I get frustrated

    because I have no control over the characters and want to rewrite the story. Anyone else feel the same way?

    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

    Books are the only way for me to escape life sometimes. It allows me to live in a fantasy world and allows me to forget whatever that is happening in reality.

    Lady Chatterley's lover is one of the worst

    books I've ever read. Really tells the story of interwar people who were part of the social category called white trash. Before that even existed....awesome

    BOOKS - you really should read them.

    .. ♥ The books in her arms for example "Madame Bovary" by Gustave Flaubert, "American Psycho" by Bret Easton Ellis and "Lolita" by Vladimir Nabokov... :-)

    I'm a binge reader. Books work on me like drugs.

    When I delve into a good book I'm instantly teleported into a totally different sphere I don't want to get out from. A sometimes pleasurable, sometimes magical, sometimes even painfully tragic other world. A world I like escaping to from my uneventful, routinised grossly...

    I am heartbroken. Just finished reading City of

    Heavenly Fire. I cried last night and I wouldn't stop reading until I crashed. It just affected me so much. Sometimes you find things in books that you didn't even know mattered to you. I am still sad. And still want to cry. But I'm also happy.

    I wouldn't call myself a big reader

    but my favorite authors are Stephen King or James Patterson. When it comes to Stephen King though I can't pass up his books, I'm always keeping an eye out when he releases a new book.

    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
