    Mmm Books

    I have done this, more than once. I love books. I haven't read any lately though. But I did sit and read some ebooks. I might actually do that if I can't find something else to do. I feel burnt out today.

    Sounds Good To Me

    Give me a good fantasy. Something new or an old favorite, it doesn't matter.  Just a nice thick book.Add in some nibbles; cookies or sour cream and cheddar potato chips.  Or grapes.  Grapes are good too.Then leave me alone to read.  Stretched out on my stomach, one eye...

    Its The Only Way Now.

     Used to read while walking to school/ college/ work/ library.  Not any more.  Need glasses to read now, but with them on can't see where I'm going and fall over cracks in the pavement.

    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.

    Add a Large Mug of Hot Chocolate...& I'm Yours

     It's Winter down under, and my favourite part of winter is curling up with the latest Tom Clancy or Jeffrey Archer novel. I add a large mug of hot chocolate and several muffins.... Take the phone off the hook, lock the front door, draw the curtains...can't stand...

    The book doesn’t even have to be good!

    I’ll settle for a “meh” book as well. I own one corner of my couch and can usually be found there in between loads of laundry on the weekends. I have a large fleece blanket that is soft and warm. It’s big enough to share with my pooch who also likes to just curl up...

    Wee Hours Of The Morning.

    I've started a good book during the day, and loved it so much that I kept curled up in my room all day and kept reading. I didn't put it down until it was finished. And that wasn't until the wee hours of the morning the next day.

    I did that just yesterday.

    I finished a whole 400 pg. book in just a day and a half. I love reading, I get lost in this new little world that only exists on those pages. I completely forget about reality and the world around me. It's my pure bliss.

    I'd Do It Everyday

    I'm a proud book nerd. I love to read. There is no hobby I find more enjoyable than doing so. And I would gladly spend all day, everyday, lost in a book. Time flies by when I read. I feel no pain, hunger, anything at all. I can just sit in a comfy spot, and stay there until I'm...

    Ahh School Holidays

    This is my time to escape into a good book or 5..depends on the genre.   Love reading, it's an escape from reality - a thirst for knowledge, a release and brings a sense of peace.   Coffee and a good book, one of my favourite ways to spend a day

    Today Has Been A Rough Day

    My fibromyalgia was absolutely awful today. It started acting up at work pretty terribly, and I ended up leaving it in the care of my best friend to take over the rest of the day so i can stay home and smoke some cannabis until I feel better. The pain is waned now, still there at...

    I have to look at a book, flip through it, read a page or maybe a paragraph before I decide to buy it. My categories are wide and varied. Biography; autobiography; history; dogs; novels; most animals...the list is endless. I wish there was a bookstore with a surplus of former...

    where I can get swept away to another world full of mystery, romance, action and suspense. I'm currently reading "Promise" by Kristie Cook, I like it so far.

    When I was little, I hated reading.

    It never came easily to me. I could read properly for my age and what not, but I had a huge struggle with wanting to read. I never found books interesting and it was weird because my older sister was a huge bookworm, she could finish huge lengthy books in a day and stay up all...

    There are books you just can't put down.

    There are books that just flow, and before you know it you've read the whole thing! There are books you fall in love with, and you want to read it more than you want to do anything else, including eat or go to the bathroom!
