    even police, always begins with a mystery and you never know who is and how it ends. Reading for me is like being inside the story as an undercover without anyone noticing me, is to see and feel the story as if we were to write it. Reading is to describe how they would be...

    I've had quite a sheltered life

    and grew up reading fiction books for pleasure. I still do, and many non-fiction too, to do with my professional and personal and spiritual development.

    I'm reading another novel by Nora Roberts.

    It's actually in the same book as the last one which is strange. It's called Song of the West. It's a different setting to the last novel I read. Wyoming as opposed to Maryland. But it's the same plot. Girl meets boy. Girl doesn't like boy. Girl ends up loving boy!

    But there's always that sad moment

    when you close the book, reality finally seeps in and you realize it's not real and never will be. This moment gets me everytime

    I love reading books,

    any genre, except horror. Non-fiction is fine, but i'm more into fiction. Historical books are also not that bad, but i like "future-fiction" more. Adventure is thrilling, but mystery and crime-solving novels are much more exciting. But my all time favourite is DARK FANTASY!!!!

    I finished the two novels by Nora Roberts.

    I want to read more. She wrote a lot. Now I'm reading a novel by Julia Williams. It starts slow but it's getting more interesting. It's set in England.

    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.
