    Beyond the pages

    I am a „world“ traveler. Since my childhood that I love to travel. I have been Alice in Wonderland, played with the seven dwarfs and kissed by a prince while I was „sleeping“. Trips that I make through the pages of great books. Some trips are so exciting and wonderful...

    A couple went on vacation to a fishing resort

    up north. The husband liked to fish at the crack of dawn; the wife preferred to read. One morning the husband returned after several hours of fishing and decided to take a short nap. The wife decided to take the boat out. She was not familiar with the lake so she rowed out...

    I am reading the classics.

    Today...I finished "To Kill a Mockingbird." Oh how I never wanted it to end. I love the words of a timeless story. I have seen the movie. Beautiful and touching. Reading the words were even more incredible.

    I just started reading a very interesting novel

    by Sylvia Day named "Bared to You". The plot is just so nice that i could not resist reading four chaps without stopping. And still wishing to complete all the sequels of this great Trilogy. :)

    Okay so I love reading

    I want to be brave with my life. And when we make the choice to dare greatly, we sign up to get our ***** kicked. We can choose courage or we can choose comfort, but we can't have both. Not at the same time. Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it's having the courage to show...

    I have just finished reading Orwell's 1984

    again. I read it for the first time in my early twenties. I remember it looked pessimist and bleak to me, but I could not link it to the world I was living in. It was just...fiction. Now it did not just look even bleaker and more pessimist, but also in some aspects, prophetic...

    Reading is a huge escape

    for me from my depression and anxiety. I've been really stressed lately and therefore have read several books in short periods of time. Last night I started and finished a 400 page book. Reading is my sanity.

    It is something sacred, something to be loved and cherished all your life. Because no matter what people say or think, books are your best friends and that's that. Because the values learnt from books are those that stay with you lifelong, you should also choose books carefully...

    I see reading as an escape route; a small

    When I read a book, it usually engulfs me.

    It transports me and I'm swept away into the story. With that, comes a great desire to make the food and or drink in the book or close to. Does this happen to you?

    I hate it when I finish reading a book in class.

    I'll look around the room and notice that kids are going on with their day, texting and talking and what not, as if I didn't just experience emotional trauma at the hands of a paperback.
