I got a new book in the mail while ago,

It's by Annie's Attic Mysteries..

The Kennel Caper, By Jan Fields

We have a whole shelf of these by the fireplace.

I love reading books. Are there any book readers here at Kritterbox ?

I love my computer and love reading on it, but a book and a pot of hot coffee, makes for a very relaxing night.

I'm about ready to shut this computer down and read my new book.

So Peaceful, and lets my mind wonder, I just like the imagery I get when reading.

Kelli bought me a Kindle Paperwhite E-reader for Christmas, but it is not the same as a good Hard Back Book.

Right, I make time, even if it's only a 30 minute read. I calms me...

After I came out of my coma, my mind races 24/7

I guess it could be called an escape.

i taught myself to read around age 3...on dr suess books, one especially called red dog blue dog.
when i got to preschool they were surprised at how well i could read so they skipped me past kindergarten to first grade.

now that i have children (all grown now) i would take them to the library once a week and we would get over ahundred books each trip.
they were just as avid readers as i am.
i wanted to LIVE in the library.

i have a bathroom book, read only when i use it.
i have a sunbathing book.
ive gone through all the books in this house.
the encyclopedias are very old so they arent up to date but i still like them.

the only thing is im losing my eyesight, im already into readers and have to wear them all day when i do chores, or i wont see the dirt im sweeping up.

getting the internet was a thrill as its like million libraries at my fingertips.
so the public library REALLY misses us now,
they said we were their favorite customers.
i guess our numbers helped THEIR numbers to get more funding.

i thank the universe that im alive in this time to have the internet.
but books have the SMELL! that good old smell.
you dont need electricity to enjoy a book, just light and a nice place to sit or lay down.

It's amazing how the internet has changed everything for me. I used to read constantly, but now most everything I read is on a screen. It's not the same, I don't get as much out of it as I did reading real books.

Yes me too, our Dining has been converted to a 'Library/Computer' room. Just looking to my left and right I can see at least 500+ books. And there are more through out the house and in the storage building. Have you tried Audio books? I listen to alot of those in the evening.
