I Would Easily Spend a Whole Day Curled Up With a Good Book

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 24,059 People

    I love to read. Lately I have been reading

    books about Judaism, which I have borrowed. They are very interesting books. Last week I stayed in bed the whole day, with my painful menstruation period, reading a translation of the Book of Zohar. It is an intriguing book.

    A gift I've had since I was In elementary

    school- being able to spend the whole day reading. Then In middle school I met a friend who I thought was a great match for me. We'd make plans to go over to her house after school or on the weekends, no one would know but when we were there we'd break out our books and sit next...

    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...

    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...

    "A Book" by Emily Dickinson There is no frigate

    like a book To take us lands away, Nor any coursers like a page Of prancing poetry. This traverse may the poorest take Without oppress of toll; How frugal is the chariot That bears a human soul!

    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! I average about 4 books a month.

    If a book is really good I will not go to sleep until I've read the entire thing. I don't have a favorite writer, I pick books based on the cover. If the cover looks like something id like I'll get it. Other than the obvious big names like Stephen King I would not be able to...

    When I read I get really into the book,

    and sometimes I will be really mad when someone interrupts when I'm reading.

    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.

    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.

    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 😊

    Learned to read by the "see

    A really good novel is my greatest fault.

    I can get lost in the story and before I know it I have read the entire book in one sitting, I have always read, sometimes more than others. Reading is actually a good barometer for how I am feeling. When things are good I have a voracious appetite for words. When things are bad...

    My books are my best friends.

    They are there for me when I am down, when I'm angry, guilty, or really happy. I just grab whatever book fits my mood and curl up under my covers with my butterfly pillowpet (named flutter). Whenever I read, I forget the world around me and am transported to another world. It is...

    I get lost in the words of books.

    My imagination is so vivid that I find it hard to pull myself back to reality. The words make me feel things for each character. I cry, laugh, and go through life with them. I find it so easy to spend a whole day reading. I use it as an escape so I can block out reality. Words...

    Not bothered getting dressed or going out, just staying in bed with a book! These times are special, and books I read in a day I put on a separate shelf to others I read.

    I have always loved books.

    Credits to a woman who brought back the habit in me. With her, we curled for hours. Musing through the pages. And kissing in between. We sauntered the great events that took place in the author's brain. And stirred by some new emotions for which we love to discover.

    One of the most enjoyable things

    for me. Reading a book for me is escaping my reality. With each new book, it's like there's a new fantasy world I'm living in. I have a guilty pleasure for steamy, intense reads and whenever I can indulge in it I always dream up some fantasy while reading. I love that I have a...

    Pride and prejudice was such a good book for some reason. Jane Austen really captures the mentality of 19 century English people and the romance was 👌.
