    Its all I ever do. I read everything.

    Reading is my life. It takes your worries away and puts you in an amazing world just for a little while. Old book stores are the best. When I go to London over the summer, there's an old book store on the corner. Its huge. Inside is beautiful. There's spiral stairs and its just...

    Books..

    Books I love your scent. The way you feel in my hands so secure. You keep me thinking of you all day at work and I race home to finish you. I daydream about you and what you will do next. You make me hot inside then sad. I relive you at times if you are that good or toss you out...

    Every Time.

    Every time I get a new book I have a hard time putting it down until I've finished it. Then, when I'm done, I'm upset that it's over. I want the stories to continue on and on. I always find myself getting completely lost in my books. I can honestly say I am not upset about this...

    My Parents Used To Ground Me From Books!

    I've been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. When I was younger, I was always reading, even when I was supposed to be doing something else. If I was supposed to be cleaning my room, I would often pick up a book off the floor or something to put it away, and would end...

    I really love reading.

    I've always loved reading, ever since I was a little kid. I haven't had time to read much lately though and I feel kind of bad about it. The library is my favorite place to go. Is it weird that I only like to buy books after I've read them?

    Loving Books

    I didn't love books as a young child. In fact my parents had to bribe me to learn to read in first grade. I had to read X number of books in order to get the gym set I wanted. At first it was hard and I didn't like it but once I got past that I flew through the levels quickly...

    Escape

    My favorite time to curl up and read is when there's a nice drizzle of rain outside. Usually I need to be listening to music when I need to concentrate (this in turn, distracts me) so when there's rain, I can lull myself into books without a playlist. I love books because they...

    Like a novel for a week.

    Sometimes two. Sometimes a novel takes a month, with several novels in between. Depends on whether the storyline is dragging. It's one of the pleasures I will not give up as long as I live.
