love to read and discover new books. you have some good ones listed
I love reading. I can't wait to find a new book that I don't want to put down. I am going to read some reviews to help me choose the next book I read.
I love to read. It has always been a great hobby of mine. There is nothing better than a good book to get lost in.
Books are an amazing escape from the everyday, and an inspiration to change the routine and open our eyes to new and different ideas. I can't imagine life without being surrounded by great literature.
I have been in love with books since a child; my mother would catch me up in the wee hours with a book, even before I could read! Now my home has an extensive library because to me books are still among the greatest treasures on earth, especially old books which I collect. Reading is a gift that continues to open doors. I do not remember learning how to read, only that I can; I take advantage of that gift every day. There is nothing so rich and rewarding as holding a book, turning the pages, smelling the ink, paper, leather...then becoming completely absorbed in a subject. It really is like a door to a place I can enter as often as I choose, and the content never grows stale, the characters always reliably the same, waiting to pick up where we left off. My husband and I read to each other which adds another measure of enjoyment to books. Evening tea with a good book, by the fireplace - heavenly!
Thank you for the video :) I'm an avid book reader. There is nothing quite like curling up with a book, and reading, unable to put it down, no matter how late the hour, because you're just so invested in the story and the characters that you NEED to know what happens next! Most recently I've I've fallen for authors S.G. Browne (Breather's: A Zombie's Lament, Fated) and Seth Grahame-Smith (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Abraham Lincoln; Vampire Hunter) - I like satires ;)
I love to read books. My last book that I read is Water for Elephants.
A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin is great! The best books I have read in forever! I also love my Kindle got me back into reading.
My must read, nearly every year, is The Secret History by Donna Tartt. One of THE best books that I've ever read, and I read a lot. It's my go-to favorite.
I have to say I love books. I have just read Cannary Row and God Grew Tired of US. I really loved Cannary Row. When I started reading God Grew Tired of Us it hit a cord. The things the author went threw are horrible.
I could live in a book store. I love reading & would love to win. I am currently reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
