    Oh, that is my dream day!

    A comfortable chair, a snuggly blanket and one of those books that just draws you in. You become so absorbed that you lose track of the world. David Eddings, Janny Wurth and Raymond Feist were done if my favorites.

    I often find a good read,

    make a cup of coffee and lie back on the couch for an afternoon of reading. It brings me great pleasure and takes me places that I can never hope to go. Reading is a passion of mine.

    I love to read any time of the day

    or night. I can get lost in a book and forget about anything. Sometimes when I was a little girl I'd read to escape sadness. Now I read to be transported into a a wonderful haven. I don't like to read anything to anxiety provoking but sometimes I do anyway. My favorite books are...

    love for reading. To me it was one of my escapes, and rather then go out and play I could be found inside with a book. I

    I have always been a huge fan of reading.

    Being able to use your imagination and letting it take you away to where ever the book takes you. I love It!! there is nothing like it.

    If I could I would love to spend a whole day in

    bed curled up with a good book. I honestly love to read anything and everything. I am currently reading two books by Ben Carson, a former neurosurgeon.

    This is what I miss the most about not working.

    ....having the energy to read. Most of the time when I stumble into my house after work, I'm barely coherent. My hands shake, my everything aches. My head hurts, and I would like so much to escape but my neck hurts too bad to hold up straight, the stress settles behind my eyes...

    Fifty Shades Of Greene By Nicci Greene

    Fifty Shades of Greene by Nicci Greene is my favourite book to just read alone. It makes me cry, it makes me laugh, it toys with my emotions and makes me wet. it's the perfect story for a book and well written but above all its real and that why I like it so much.

    A few years ago I had chicken pox,

    and spent about four days in bed, and used the time to read the first three Twilight books. Even when I'm not poorly, I can easily read a book in a day. I love it.

    I find books are maps to elsewheres

    and otherworlds, or ways to unfurl ourselves, like flags, through learning, and a day spent reading cannot ever be a day entirely wasted.

    Sometimes I like to curl up with "guilty

    pleasure" books. Books that are light hearted, ditzy, and well just easy to read. Anyone else have books like that?

    Learned to read by the "see

    I'm hoping it's how I'm going to spend tomorrow.

    Today I'm going to be reading off and on but I don't have any books that I'm really excited about at the moment so tomorrow I'm going to be going to the library and finding some new books and spend all day there reading anime or comic books which ever I feel like looking at
