Chit Chat

Reading is one of my favorite things to do. Even as a child I loved reading. Our parents always read to us as kids at bedtime. We would always snuggle together on mom and dad's bed and listen to the story. Afterwards we would go to our own beds to go to sleep. At school we had the AR Reading program where each book was worth so many points and after reading it you took a short quiz on the computer to obtain points. All through school I always had the highest amount of points each year. Yeah, I am a geek.
It is just so easy to get lost in a good book. I always have a stack of books by my bed that I want to read and even though I have that stack I will still buy new books! Tracy complains when I am reading because I won't talk to her or do anything else until I finish the book. I love books that I can just loose track of time with. That I can spend hours reading and then look up and wonder where all the time went. I love books that make me laugh out loud and books that leave me in anguish until I can find the time to keep reading to see what will happen next. You know the kind of books I am talking about, right? The kind that leave you wanting more once you have finished the very last page. What are your favorite books? Have you read any books that you think everyone should read? Give me recommendations please.
Here are a few of my thoughts on books:

  1. I love reading books to. I just don't have as much time to devote to them as I would like to. I'll be doing a book review this week on my summer reads. I think it's wonderful your parents instilled reading into your life.

  2. Definitely agree with the signs above. I love reading books too!!

  3. I would be totally miserable without reading. I'm actually incapable of falling asleep without unwinding by reading for 20 minutes or so. In terms of recommendations, I just finished The Dove Keepers by Alice Hoffman and loved it!

  4. I adore books and always have more on my list to get before I've finished the ones I've started. But, they are marvellous. Agree with all of these quotes :))) xx

  5. i love reading too and read a ton as a kid. it takes me a lot longer to read now since i have less time, but i am always working on getting through a new book.

  7. These passed two years I've been getting into reading more books. Even though I hated it growing up lol.
    There are some people who say they might not have time, but I suggest audio books. Is great while your doing your chores and such!

  8. Great quotes! I love reading and got my master's in publishing. Books open up a whole new world!

  9. I love immersing myself in the world of books too! Whilst I don't really like the whole fantasy fiction, i do love the works of Cecelia Ahern, Have you read any of her books?

  10. I'm an avid reader too! I always have at least a couple going. Right now it's, "The Piano Teacher," and "Go for No!" Both really amazing reads. :)
