    Before reading books,

    i hated it, Because i think it's dull and waste of time. But after my ex gf got me into this one book ''The fault in our stars'', after reading it, i realise how amazing book reading is, and start to read other books :) Thought i'd share it

    A Magical Portal

    I love to read! I'll read just about anything! A good day is relaxing on the balcony reading an interesting story. A book that shows a portal to another world. Perhaps I'll be transported to a mysterious land filled with adventure at every turn. I may be teleported to the past...

    When I was in 1st grade I walked to school

    and passed by a college bookstore every day. I was often late because I stopped to look at the books and talk to the man behind the counter in the bookstore. My mother found another family for me to walk to school with, so I wouldn't take so long getting there. At the end of...

    I love to read, ever

    since I was a kid. I am quite the bibliomaniac myself, and am constantly buying new books. I'd rather buy books than new clothes to be honest. I love the kind of books I can get lost into, drown out the word and forget about all of my surroundings and to help me escape reality...

    I currently have probably read more

    than 1 maybe 2 thousand books in my life. I absolutely love reading in my free time when I'm not playing video games, watching youtube or helping my mom with her mini garden. If you have any books to recommend go ahead. I read all kinds of books.

    People usually have many different ways of how

    they escape the world. I usually read to escape reality. When I get upset I usually read a really good book and I wonder why my life can't be like that. Seems a bit cheesy but whatever because thats how I escape the harsh world.

    Currently reading The Lucifer Effect.

    It's about the Stanford Prison Experiment. It intrigues me how good people can turn evil in such a short space of time.

    I love books so much

    because reading is like living another life. I can get so sucked into them and they make me feel like I'm in it. Like some say, a reader lives a thousand lives and someone who does not read only lives one.
