    I'm French, I'm a girl

    and I'm 14 and a half. Here, for teenagers, reading is stupid, boring and all of these stupid things they say. They even say that Shakespeare, Moliere or Voltaire don't have a talent, they say they're useless and they don't understand why we speak about those famous persons at...

    Reading makes me feel

    so happy, so good, so refreshing that I never ever care about the number of pages. So what's the longest novel you have ever read?

    Ever since I was 10 I've loved to read,

    my room is overflowing with novels of all sorts! Although my favourite author is Trudi Canavan (if you haven't read any of her books I highly suggest you do!) followed by Pittacus Lore. Both writers have made it nearly impossible for me to put down any one of their books, and I...

    Went to a huge book sale yesterday!

    Bought about 15 books for only $13.50. That's what I would have spent on one paper back book at the book store. And over half of them are hard back.

    Have you ever read a book

    and you are instantly hooked? I read the Moments of Silence by Natasha Preston and stayed up until 3 in the morning reading the first book. I had to work the next evening but I could not wait to get home and read some more. It is as if for the time I am reading there is...

    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.

    I love reading, it's an escape from reality.

    I get to imagine the story come to life not just stare at some screen. I love reading because I get to image someone else's life and not have to think of mine Reading is my escape. What's yours?
