This is awesome, wild news. Last night Mr. Kat and I talked briefly about what I might do. Then today, I went to B & N and looked at what they had. Apparently B & N is no longer selling the Nooks that are really a Samsung (Android) tablet. ...See More »
I read an article in curiousmindmagazine about how single women are the happiest. While I don't agree on everything it says, some parts of it made me think. I have to admit though that these words below hit the bull's-eye. "...And if ...See More »
I love reading novels!! I especially like novels with the genre of mystery/thriller and fantasy/romance. I go to book fairs whenever I can and I almost always save money to buy books that I like. It's too bad not one of my blockmates and friends...See More »
'On a mountain above the clouds once lived a man who had been the gardener of the Emperor of Japan. Not many people would have known of him before the war, but I did. He had left his home on the rim of the sunrise to come to the central highlan...See More »
"A letter always embodies the distance it must travel by coach, boat, train or plane...Even a letter's tactile quality is of the very essence of its journey through time and space. We still recognize- today more than ever perhaps- the preci...See More »
Always have,quite liking the style of some recent books, great stories, and here's a random well written fragment of a dark scifi book ;) "Ezekyle Abaddon, He who watches the galaxy burn, through eyes bleached gold by the light of a false...See More »
I've been reading since I was a child. I didn't have many friends growing up and my grandfather didn't let us get cable so I spent all my time reading. Reading keeps me distracted and I love sinking into the world of the written word a...See More »
It’s weird how things start happening when you start to believe in something. I’d just finished reading the book “Angels in my hair”. I’d always been curious about angels. I’ve always wanted to read more about them. I’ve wanted to hear people’s expe...See More »
Any other nonfiction lovers active at the moment? I feel like nonfiction doesn’t get enough credit. I always meet so many people who hate it and think it’s boring and I get why, it has a very different appeal than the plots and characters of fiction,...See More »
“We believe that we can change the things around us in accordance with our desires—we believe it because otherwise we can see no favourable outcome. We do not think of the outcome which generally comes to pass and is also favourable: we do not succee...See More »
I remember having such a passion for reading when I was younger. Even though I was absolutely terrible at it, I loved when my mom or dad would come home with a new book for us to read together. But once middle school started and we go forced to read ...See More »
When I was in school, I had this real smart teacher with Scottish ancestry (I'd think he was probably proud of it as he let us know). I think he believed you could increase your IQ as an adult and he once said, if I'm not mistaken, that t...See More »
I think it's good for your mind to not just read a book, but think about what you're reading. There was a time when I wanted to expand my mind, so I got myself to read books, trying to exercise my mind. Lately, I've been out of the h...See More »
Nearly always lies a book on my table. Some of my favorite authors are Jane Austen, Mark Twain and Virginia Woolf (I read them in German translations, I am way too lazy to read their original works!), also Theodor Fontane and Thomas Mann, and I still...See More »
I forgot that. When I see a book that looks like it'll be interesting and I check it out only to find what a struggle it is to get into the story, I wonder if I don't like to read much anymore. Then, I pick up a book from one of my favorite...See More »
The Gateway Drug... I have to admit, I have an addiction to reading. It all began when I was really young. Probably around 5 years old. For me, and for many young children across this fine planet of ours, Dr. Seuss was my ga...See More »
Edward Abbey is one author that has inspired me on a daily basis. I wish I could have a camp out with me, him, H.D. Thereou( never can remember how to spell that), and Mark Twain. Imagine the campfire conversation would be sacrilegious, and border o...See More »
I love getting lost in a book and feeling the emotions of a character. I enjoy using my imagination. I love the feeling you get when you can't put a book down because you need to know whats going to happen next. It distracts me from my reality a...See More »
'I'll just read one more chapter.' I've been saying that to myself since I was quite young and missed out on sleep and been late for appointments because of it. I've never tried ebooks, but the real thing in my hand, the tur...See More »
I have just completed Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys. No writer has pulled at my heartstrings and given me such anxiety and hope all at once the way that Sepetys has. Josie Moraine is my Hero and me in ways I can't even begin to describe. I am ...See More »
A Book'S Impact... When I was about 13, I read Twilight by Stephenie Meyer for the first time. At first, I didn't know why people liked it so much. If I caught anyone dead reading that book, I assumed they were just f...See More »
Great Escape... “It has often been saidthere’s so much to be read, you never can cram all those words in your head. So the writer who breeds more words than he needs is making a chore for the reader who reads. That's w...See More »
Where Have All The Readers Gone?... I am currently 20 years old, and it shocks me to see how few people of my age read. They all prefer watching TV and movies. Then we wonder why young people today struggle to read. They don...See More »

Remember by Christina Rossetti Remember me when I am gone away, Gone far away into the silent land; When you can no more hold me by the hand, Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay. Remember me when no more day by day You tell me of our future...See More »
I Love The Smell Of Books!... There is nothing like the smell of books, both new and old. I swear every time I am reading a book, I hold my nose close to the pages and inhale. I find the smell comforting and reminds me of my ha...See More »
I plan on writing a book soon, but I want to know if I could be sued for doing this. My book's story line is a little like the story line from the movie "Sharkboy and Lavagirl". In the movie the main character, Max, is at school when ...See More »
Has anyone read the book Fahrenheit 451? I read that in school and that is my favorite book. Ray Bradbury was trying to send a message to people about the future and I agree with him. He is correct even about today. I do stay inside and use technol...See More »

Just finished a book about the Crusades by British-French writer Hilaire Belloc. Belloc was a fervent Catholic. Someone who did not hesitate to write 'Europe is the Faith, and the Faith is Europe'. His vision of history is, of course, Cath...See More »
I read this today. It was quite inspiring. So sharing it here.. It was one seemingly ordinary day when I decided to QUIT… All of a sudden I made a decision to quit my job, my relationship and finally my spirituality. I just wanted to quit my life. ...See More »
Rumi's answer to questions asked by a disciple: What is Poison? He replied with a beautiful answer - Anything which is more than our necessity is Poison. It may be Power, Wealth, Hunger, Ego, Greed, Laziness, Love, Ambition, Hate or anything W...See More »
Reading is like when your legs went missing and you walk with that which was the legs of another, like when one plays around, if it is more than a game there are some stages before the penultimate low which is theft of the word, which is seen less ha...See More »
Jerome David Salinger. Jerome? To say you've read all of Salinger's books is not as outrageous as it sounds. As far as I know, there were only four "books." I own them, and have read them. It was Mr. Arrington who got me started ...See More »

The human brain is the command center for the human nervous system. It receives input from the sensory organs and sends output to the muscles. The human brain has the same basic structure as other mammal brains, but is larger in relation to body size...See More »
Reading is enjoyable most times. I'm currently reading this book called The 48 Laws of Power. Its a good book, then I guess I'll be on to another one once I'm done. I like how my little sister likes to read. She always comes to me to b...See More »
My mom says I read too much. I read The Outsiders once a week. Like, I'm not joking. I've read it once a week since I've got it in August. It's such a classic. But I read all sorts of books. It's just nice to be sucked into w...See More »
Last night I found an old science fiction novel that looked interesting. I'm not usually one for fiction, but this one seemed to be a little different. It's called The End of Eternity and was written by Isaac Asimov, the guy who wrote the o...See More »
Just read that none of the 50 items that public libraries users in Madrid ask for more is a book. Most of them are magazines and movies. I am not surprised. I know that a number of avid readers have switched to e-book, but also evidence that the comm...See More »
