Well said Gina! Reading indeed is magical. It has the power to transport us to a whole new world.

Laura | 25 comments Hello to all, I'm lou and It's nice to talk to all.
I believe that reading is more of a gift it lets you experience the world through someone elses eyes. It teaches us and it gives us escape from reality into a new world :D

Welcome Lou! :)
Indeed, books help us see a different world through the tinted glasses worn by the author. No wonder I love the first person narrative style.

Hi Faith :)
I seem to suffer from a similar problem as well. In fact after borrowing a book from a friend or library, I feel the need to own a copy. Hence, I have often bought books I have already read. :)

Welcome Shantanu! I'm sure most of us here feel the same -- that books transport us to another world. What are you reading these days?

Deepti | 14 comments Hi
This is Deepti.
I believe as long as I have a book, I have a friend.


message 44: by Deepti (new)

Deepti | 14 comments I think heaven for me would be a huge library full of books, a nice, cosy couch and a hot cup of coffee.
What about you guys?

Hahaha... well said Deepti! Like Naura, I too agree with you. Although, I would prefer a warm cup of tea and the sound of rains outside, while reading! How about that? :)


message 47: by Naura (new)

Naura | 27 comments @Debarati- That would be perfect! :D But I really don't care that much :P I can read in a crowded market place too :P
Or the best place and time to read?
DURING class hours! :D
PURE bliss XDD


message 48: by Deepti (new)

Deepti | 14 comments Hahaha, I guess all of us here will be quite happy as long as we have a good book(which is not study:)) with us at all times!!!


message 49: by Naura (new)
