Book Love

I bet you can guess the nature of this post by the title.
I do so love books, old and new alike classics and contemporary and probably every genre.
From the first memory I have to now I have always loved books. Picture a small brunet girl with big dreaming eyes holding a large old book with a stagecoach on the front of the cloth bound volume, she would look at each word wondering what each word meant while thinking how impossible it seemed to a small child's mind that she would ever learn this strange writing. Preferring large picture less volumes, to the pictured ones she would stare at those words dreaming of the stories and adventures within the pages.
This little girl was me, and I haven't lost that love of books, as you can tell by the title.
I adore the library for that reason, I could spend all day every day there.
Its from these books that my inspiration is drawn, and of corse from all of you whose lovely blogs inspire me daily. But there's something about a book hand held that has a special quality, I prefer to read words from a page than from a screen, just personal preference.


One of my favorite pastimes is spent with a book always at my side, I have a real problem when it come to reading at the most inopportune times, like when I should be helping with supper :)
But there's something about getting lost within those pages, that enthralls me. I feel like a time traveler when ever I scan those pages, what fun it is to lose all sense of reality and of who you are and become that character within those pages. When it comes to reading the possibilities are endless, the world is all your own. I spent this past week in the lovely france, battling alongside joan of arc and a vary old magician, fighting a very ancient monster who was full bent on destroying the city of paris. See what I mean ?

CONFESSION: I really have an obsession when it comes to books.
What is your preference for books and your favorite genres ? I'd love to hear from you.


  1. I LOVE reading too! : ) I like historical fiction the best, probably. I am currently reading Under a Changing Moon (again!!) set in Germany and one of the original Elsie Dinsmore books {as well as my Bible and my devotion book......you can see I don't often read one book at a time! :) }

    Love ~*Chantelle*~

    1. Oooo this book sounds neat. Yes I understand reading more than one book at a time, I seem to get impatient and want to read them all.

  2. Awesome, Hope!! I love reading books as well!! You are just like me. I could spend hours in a library or bookstore and never get bored. I'd rather read and write instead of doing supper or cleaning. I have a lot of favorite books. But I think my favorite are the Narnia series, the Zion Covenant series, Lord of the Rings, Sherlock Holmes and recently all books by Tricia Goyer. My favorite authors are endless as are my love books. But if I had to choose one at this present time it would be Tricia Goyer.

    1. I'm happy to find I'm not alone with this, I know its most frustrating when I have the urge to write and other chores get in the way. I shall give your fav author a look. I have been wanting to read the Sherlock Holmes books but something always is calling me first read me read me :)))

  3. I love reading, as you know :) and recently I have been bingeing on classics, some of which I have never even heard of, at the moment I am reading a book called The Grapes of Wrath and its turning out to be very interesting. I love book stores and I'm so sad that a lot of them are going out of business :( but at least the writers haven't stopped writhing yet lol

    1. yes I know how much you love reading, I'm glad you are reading the classics, there really is no comparison to more contemporary books. i too always feel sad when people talk about the dyeing book industry, but if I still love them it will not die, and I know I'm not alone.


Thank you for taking time to leave a comment.
I love to hear from you, my dear readers.
