    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...

    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...

    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?

    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.

    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...

    When I was younger I avoided reading.

    I never wanted anyone to feel I was a nerd. Even though I was. My grades never showed that because I was trying to be one of the bad boys. Now I love reading about everything. Even the bad boys. I love getting all the books I can just in case I run out of things to read. So, I...

    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...
