    The Peregrine- J.A.BakerThese last few days I

    have been walking the fields, ridges, brooks, rivers and estuaries of Essex in the company of J.A.Baker and his masterpiece The Peregrine. Mr- Baker was a devoted birdwatcher, and as the title of the book suggest, his greatest passion was to observe the preying activities of the...

    I see reading as an escape route; a small

    distraction from reality. I can go beyond the four walls of my room, without having to move.

    Reading books its like an obsession to me!

    I can read a 500-pages book in 3 days. Once I start reading I literally can't stop. It's a great way of learning new thing and distract the mind away from problems and my cellphone lol Right know I'm reading The Maze Runner Trilogy :)

    Seriously, can reading be considered an

    addiction? If so...I'm addicted to books! And also writing, it makes everything possible!

    When I was a disenchanted stroppy teenager I

    became obsessed with "The Catcher in the Rye". I truly thought it was the best book ever written and Holden was my hero. Due to late insomnia I've been working my way through my ancient paperback collection and revisited this "classic" a couple of nights back. I can confirm that...

    This week I read "Songs of Willow Frost" by

    Jamie Ford. Hearing mixed rewievs of his debut novel I found myself sceptical but being almost thretened to read it by an enthusiastic old lady I'd just met I had no other choice than to read it. The book is dealing with Seattle under the depression, a child seperated from his...

    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.

    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...

    Would you rather read a novel about a young man

    who journeys to find purpose and learns things and meets people along the way, or a novel about a young man who tries to commit suicide, but develops powers given to him by the Greek Gods to combat evil?

    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.

    that are neither uber-popular and/or sci-fi/romance/dystopian future books? I I feel that's over 3/4 of my library and I want more thought-provoking books and less "hero with a thousand faces" book.
