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.
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.
