    Learned to read by the "see

    and say" method before I began school. My grandmother would read to me, and since I liked the same stories over and over and over (poor lady) I eventually figured it all out. Thereafter the library was my friend. At the time, our city and county each had their own library...

    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 can stay in bed all day with a good book.

    My social life is none existent so books are my savior. I feel like I can live through the characters. If you have any recommendations please let me know ūüėä

    I already spent a few hours this week up a tree

    reading Abarat for a third time. It's an amazing book with lots of imagery.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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

    Maybe not so easily..

    . the last time I was so caught up in a book that I couldn't put it down, I was reading "The Sum of All Fears" by Tom Clancy. Imagine my disappointment in the crap movie they made from it.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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
