    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'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...

    I love reading all kinds of books,

    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...

    Has anyone here read Brandon Sanderson's

    Mistborn series? Or the Stormlight Archive? Fanstastic books, all a part of his 35-37 book series in the 'Cosmere' universe. He's an amazing author and his fantasy has no limits. His writing is near perfect and the storylines and the characters are so good.

    When I read a book, I put in all the

    imagination I can, so that it is almost like writing the book as well as reading it - or rather, it is like living it. It makes reading so much more exciting, but I don't suppose many people try to do it.

    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?

    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.

    Books have this amazing power to throw us into

    another world. For months after reading them, I'd still be lost in the England of Jane Austen, the America of Mark Twain and the India of E.M Forster.
