    I'm at that awful, desperate feeling you get

    when you finish a good book and the world that you were so absorbed in is lost to you. Can't wait until the next book! But I find I have to wait for a few days between books to recharge, otherwise I still feel nostalgic for the last book while moving on to the next. :p

    I've really been off my game in reading

    literature lately. Can anybody recommend something that I might like based on the authors I like? Authors I like: Sartre, Dostoyevsky, Joyce, Kerouac, Ginsberg, Huxley, etc.

    when I have anxiety, reading sometimes helps me.

    but even if I do have anxiety I still love to read.

    Currently in the middle of the 2nd book of the

    Fifty Shades trilogy :) It's a really good story. I can't put it down. I highly recommend it. It does get sexually graphic though...

    Does anybody have any suggestion

    for books that are a bit like Donna Tartt's secret history? There's just something about that world.

    Anyone read "Between the World

    and Me?" By Ta-Nehisi Coates? I'm curious about it, but if it's a book that has an underlying message to slander white people I won't waste my money. I just want to know if it has a very unbias approach. Seems really interesting.

    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...

    My classmates all ridicule me

    for reading more books rather than watch movies with them. But I don't mind. Those idiots can't differentiate a book from a magazine. I'm comfortable with what I'm doing and I won't change reading for them. It hurts, but fictional characters taught me to be who I am and just be...

    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.
