Bookworm!

I started reading @ a very young age thanks to my mother, who read with me each night from infancy. I wish I had a dollar for every book I have ready, it has to be in the hundreds, maybe even more than a thousand. I do not read as much as I used to, thanks to the internet. :(

I too love books.

I totally identify with you there, Books , all shapes, sizes, authors, I can never get enough of. I have read a variety of works, and cannot attribute one or two favourites. To me books are my salvation , and saving grace. A world to escape to, characters to portray, plots to get caught up in. Although I love my kindle , but handling books and turning the pages , is irreplaceable, call me old fashioned lol, but that is the truth .

i'm a bookworm too, like you thanks to my parents. I've got that many books I ran out off shelf space so my friend gave me another book shelf,,,, erm, that's full now aswell!

I am constantly reading. I just recently read Breaking Dawn in 2 weeks. Before that I read the entire Hunger Games trilogy in 3 weeks. I just can't get enough of these books. I hope Stephanie Meyer has some new ones coming out soon. I'm about to start the Host...see how quick I can get through it.

haha i really like to read, and it doesnt matter to me wheter i do it on the internet or an actual book... like, i specially like reading on this website called FanFiction.net... its really cool, y'all should check it out

I love to read. I always have something on the go. It is my easy escape from my own life and reality.

i have read voraciously my whole life. it has been my best freind and my comforter when i am down, i can read and forget my own life for awhile

Mine as well. It was my escape when I was a kid.

I love reading, it really helps me to escape from my problems.Books have helped me through alot.<br />

Reading is great. I also love reading. Especial when the book is educative and move you in a great way.

For survival in this fast-paced world, we need to find solace amongst the many difficulties that we are facing as a society.<br />

i like reading too much too...I wish I could buy more books but I don't have a money for it and the bookstore in our place are only selling books for studying. I like romance novels with mature twist to it.

For me , to read is to take myself into a world where all I understand is the story, to be captured in a story is excilirating. The feel of a book in my hands , and to gently touch of the pages with my hand while holding the book close to my face and smelling it's sent is exciting , no where can a laptop or computer compare.I love to read

I love reading non-fiction books. It sets my mind straight!

Hehe..i read too a lot! but not to the extend of bookworm

i am bipolar and very anxious . reading is sometimes the only thing that can calm me. I usually have four to ten books going at the same time . the recession has made me read books i had bought, but had not read yet. what a treat that has been!. i usually bought books with very good reviews or award winners,so i have been having fun going back through my library.i also have a very understanding librarian who does not bat an eye when i check out fifteen books ,lucky me!

I came from a very poor rural family. I don't think they read two books between the 10 of them. For some reason I couldn't get enough books. I think it had something to do with my first and second grade teachers. They told me I could see the world through books. They were right. I left that little one horse town and saw the world. Once through books then when I grew up and joined the Navy. I did my best to teach my children to read but they grew up in the technology age. They never read anything except maybe abreviated text messages. OMG BFF ROFL. New words I guess. At least I know they are intelligent and can deal with their world. I'm old school though. Give me paper anytime. It just feels good.

To country8, If she is 6 years old and love to read. By all means let her read, she is learning. Maybe when she gets older she will write on similar subjects. Times have changed and you are to give the reader what they want to keep them interested in your book. Your granddaughter is learning. And if she ask questions you do not know or want to answer, refer her to the local library and they will refer her to books where she can learn the information she's curious about. The libarian will help you to help her learn.... Let them know what she's interested in reading and they will be able to recommend other books by that same author or subject matter....

My mom used to read to me too :)

Reading, I love reading. I am 58 and have just finished for the 2nd time Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallows. I think J K Rowling is a brilliant author. Her imagination is fantastic. An other author is like is Barbara Erskine. I have been reading since I was a wee girl and the first books I read were Enid Blytons novels. I cant go to sleep until I have read some pages of my book.

I learnt to read at a very young age. I write now, too, but mostly fanfiction (fanfiction . net is a great place to read hundreds of stories, all for free), and occasionally I think up ideas for original things.<br />
<br />
Recently, though, I'm looking more at non-fiction. Does anyone know a decent site (not wikipedia, but something that explains things simply) where you could find interesting things to learn?

hey i like reading to

If you like to read, volunteer at Gutenberg Project. They are converting old books into ebook and audio books. You can volunteer to be a proofreader or recorder, reading aloud putting the books on audio book. It's fun and they help you....You will be bringing old books back to life again.. You help is needed..

i love tooo read only the best books ever to be written and the most saddest ones at that too yes you got it true storys hate

I like to read also, but I am picky about what I read. I hate books that take to long to get into the meat of a book (what the book's story is). There is a gutenberg project where you volunteer to proofread classic books being converted into ebooks. It's fun, and they could use your experience since you read a lot. Go to gutenbergproject.com. You get to read whole books for free. Great way to gain knowledge on different subjects.

"In the Arena" by Richard Nixon is a book that I started reading and I just cannot put it down, that is how good it is. I highly recommend this very interesting book. Incidentally, if you are not addicted to Nixon yet, this book will definitely seal your fate.

I read a lot. However, I don't like to read on the computer as much as on paper.

I am addicted to reading, Since grade 3 i have read at a university level its my only escape, i love reading fanfiction online, and books where love exsists, its just so wow.

I just started reading "Beyond Peace" and I cannot put the book down. This book is Richard Nixon at his best.

I read to go away from my real life. Kind of a bummer but reality for me.

i also love to read i started when i was 7 and i am now 13 my family love that i love to read as when ever any1 sees me i am always reading lol

A book that should be in any library of a student going to school is : "Leaders" by Richard Nixon.

My mom and dad both read to me from a very young age. Reading was pretty much all I did from first grade (when I discovered Harry Potter) up until eighth grade. By now, I still love to read, but I read books for school a lot more. I LOOOOVE discussions on book topics... they're so much fun.

I know exactly what you mean i have basically the same story my mum always used to read to me to, every night she read a book or a story it really made me interested in reading. But now i read mostly online, and maybe not the best quality stuff either...

I love to read as well, but like you, I have taken to the internet as well. But like one of the commenters said it is still reading... LOL :)

good stuff

You are like me. I am a bookworm. The internet has not even stopped me because I spend a lot of time researching topics on the net.<br />
<br />
But I have turned into a writer now because my knowledge bank is so full I just have to share the experience. So all that reading will eventually turn into dollars back to me. Try it.<br />
<br />
My book is called MASTER OF YOUR DESTINY 1: TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH.<br />

I have prepared six books for my winter holiday. Two of <BR><BR>them are about lawsuit,two novels seperately written <BR><BR>by a French female writer and an Austrian writer,the rest <BR><BR>of them are related to my major . I start each book with <BR><BR>about thirty pages one day. It is surely to be a <BR><BR>wonderful experience that I am going to have.

i read a great deal .i always have. i do so to broaden my knowledge

reading in internet is much more rewarding because by reading about one thing you find out about another thing..it might be quite chaotic way to gain worldy knowledge but ...i think its smashing great way to find so many hilarious ideas about the world...i do like to read books but soetimes it find it boring to read only one thing spread over 400 pages..its like diging potatoes and finding antics of rome :D

I read everyday. At one time I had 3 books going at the same time 1 each at work, home and in my bag that way I was never with out a Book. My friend got my a book on tape & that made it 4 book the tape was in the car as I drove. Another thing I enjoy. I to think that the internet is reading only your doing a # of different types of reading.

Reading on the internet is still reading, and it is still good for you.
