Addicted

I Love reading books now, I really have no idea why I didn't start reading them sooner. The decent kind, not ones with pictures and ryhmes haha. I did have books but didn't read them.
I would let them be displayed on my shelf collecting a heck load of dust, just to seem intelligent to anyone who came over.I had no idea what half of them were about.

That is until I read a book online, that made me pick up a book off the shelf and now I have read them all, still craving to read more.
First I would read a inch and a half sized book which would take two weeks to get through, now I'm reading Harry Potter sized freaking books and takes me half the time to finish.

I have officially chosen reading over sleep and that doesn't happen ever, sleeping is my number one escape but now... I swear I have put on some beef just getting lost into books and letting time fly by. Day and night, I'm either holding a book in front of me at 4 in the morning laughing or in front of my laptop in the afternoon feeling all gooey inside. Who would have known I would turn into such a bookworm and it would have an effect on me?.
I mean I basically hated reading growing up, it was torture. I would always perfer the movie version ha!.

But now, I love it and 100 and 10 percent addicted. I love it them so much I actually bought my first book yesterday. As I always thought it was a waste of money but I now know why it's worth every cent.

Well better late than never, eh? :D I have been a bookworm since I was a kid, but it did take me time to get into them. Mum bought me these bunch of novels when I was ten, but I never read them. Until one day, I did...and from then on, there was no looking back.

I've reading the Artemis Fowl series lately, and am halfway through the eighth book. Did the Star Wars Adventure Series before that and the Pendragon series. All awesome :D

What have you been reading?

OMG, I thought I was the only one who read that series lol
I use to read Artemis Foul books when I was little only because I had too. I did enjoy it but kinda lost interest in reading it when I got older. I just might pick up on where I left off. Thanks for the childhood memory, I totally forgot all about it haha.
I've been reading mainly non-fiction books at the moment.

Oh come on, don't be so shut-mouth about it. What kinda non-fiction? Spill!

Well these are my reccent:
I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb
A Day Called Hope - Gareth O'Callaghan
Quiet:The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking - Susan Cain
Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength ( I forgot who the author is)
Crusing Attitude(also forgot who the author is)
So on and so for..
Kind of random and depressing books yet very intriging and I can relate..

Oh no. I am not gonna read anything depressing. It's hard staying cheerful as is, without stuff like this getting me down. Have you read Rhonda Byrne's The Secret?

I actually only heard of the book but haven't read it.

Well you should give that one a go. And I would also suggest two books by Markus Zusak(hope I spelled his name right) I Am the Messenger and The Book Thief. I can guarantee you'll enjoy both books immensely.
