I Love to Read and Have Hundreds of Books

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 260 People

    I'm currently in the bookstore sitting in a

    corner with my earphones in, drinking coffee and flying through my newspaper, looking forward to reading a couple of chapters in a book that I've been stealing peeks through. :p. I love it. Great way to relax after work and before the gym.

    My Home Is Like a Second-hand Bookshop...

    I just love having lots of books around; reading books, and audiobooks, too.  I now have so many of both, that I'm running out of shelf-space to house them neatly.  So the spare room is becoming pretty crammed with the overspill.  Ok, so I know there are too many...

    330 Books And Counting

    I love saying that I own 330 physical books....for some of us book readers that is a small collection but for me it's a great starter collection. I've loaned out many books over the years which I now regret because I never got them back and I still remember them. I don't even...

    Love Me, Love My Books

    My room is a small library. I am a total bookworm--put anything in my hands and I'll read it. If I had to pick a favorite genre, it would be a tie between horror and historical fiction, but for the most part, I'll read whatever crosses my path.

    I prefer physical books, so I can feel the paper in my hand and hear that flick when I turn the page. Besides, reading digital books strains my eyes.
