    My favorite is reading in bed

    before I go to sleep. Laying under the covers in a pitch black room leaving my mind free to explore the world and the story.

    Whenever I read books on focus,

    my mind diverts inside the beautiful book I hold. I forget everyone around me, I forget the surroundings I have. Books is a different landscape for me, a different world that this Earth couldn't provide.

    Reading has always been a passion of mine.

    I've read so many books that broaden my perspective. When I read a series and they end, I truly felt heartbroken. Is that weird?

    Books are my first bestfriends.

    I really like them alot. No complaints, no demands. I love escaping into the magic world of books - magic everywhere, love, loyalty, respect, honesty and adventure. I have plenty of books around me. But as I have been reading a lot since the age of 9, I don't have any more books...

    I Love Books

    I LOVE to read and I'm fairly sure this experience is shared by a great deal of people.  Books do connect you to everyone (author, the people the author discusses or narrarates about, etc.).  Psychologically I think certain books like certain novels...

    I sit here alone, dreaming with my eyes open,

    my hands running along the spine. Leather bound and timeless. I laugh, I cry, I fall in love..but the words are not my own..they were thought and written by someone I do not know. My mind is a stretch of land, molding into something beautiful..my eyes are no longer seeing words...
