permalink yes, why do you enjoy books so much? is it because you can make your own images of the persons, actions and surroundings, or maybe that you just want to get away from the world around you for an hour or maybe just a couple of minutes? or is it really just something as simple as wanting to get some peace and quiet?

I myself think i enjoy books so much because when i read a good book, it's impossible for me to get bored, and i consentrate so hard on the book that i don't notice anything around me, im totally absorbed in the story. and i often feel like i have a place to escape, you know, another world and life that i escape to whenever i feel like taking a little break from the real lifes stress and worries. and thats probobly why i love fantasy so much, because fantasy stories tell the tales of other worlds, where magic and all sorts of wonderful things is possible. and what i said before about making your own images, thats probobly the reason i often enjoy books so much more than movies. in movies,they show you what people look like, exaclty how thing happen and all the sounds and such, and leave nothing to my imagination. and thats me, i like to use my own fantasy to things like that.

wow. I didn't think i would be able to write this much about books, and stil i feel like i could write alot more if i didn't stop myself from scaring you all away with my writing!!! x]

permalink Hello! ^^ I think I enjoy books because I can escape from reality for a short while. I usually read to before going to sleep so half the time I'm absorbed into the book. I also appreciate the fact that it improves our imagination and it creates something similar to a film when we read, but we're the directors. Also, some ideas and concepts in books inspire me to write or create my own stories. In addition, I like how some books can really get you thinking either by discussing a controversial topic or by it being some sort of mystery where you have to predict the future events. I also like how books arouse certain emotions in us and reading can actually make me feel happier. yeah... I see what you mean now... lol I wrote a lot more than I normally would.

permalink by reading i escaped from the hell of my reality. they were my comfort, made my dreams fly...made everything better. various stories that i could sink into...
i do that still. tho i've added anime to help with it.
basically everything is always better or worse in a fictional story. it means that you can always console yourself by thinking how it could be far worse or forget the bad stuff and sink into the positive fairy tale.

permalink The best things about books? that has to be the alternate worlds.
It's awesome how books get to drag you into the journey of countless characters as they survive through their journeys in life. How each protagonist deals with problems and how each villain tries to succeed in their schemes.

Whether it's a suspense/thriller/horror book where you delve into the their world, the tense heavy atmosphere, the screams, the blood, and the mystery erases all forms of human reality; or a romance/fantasy/sci-fi book where the world turns upside down and inside out with all the love, the lasers, the robots, the fairies, the satyrs and all that stuff.

It's those worlds that you can only find in books that make books awesome. :RBhot:

permalink I feel like I'm being sucked into a new world. I feel like I'm the character in the story. I feel that everything is so real! I feel bliss every time I finish reading a book. I feel relaxed, calm etc. No words can express the bliss I experience every time I get sucked into the world of fiction that I read. ( I read mostly fiction ones. :P )

permalink For me; it's when you find your favorite part. You don't have press the "previous chapter" or "forward" button. You just want to reread the paragraph .^.

permalink Well reading books is only limited to our imagination so in my opinion thats the best part. But thats also a draw back. Like reading Harry Potter before and after the movie was released. I cant imagine Harry looking like anything or anyone else other than Daniel Radcliffe. Thats also why I prefer to read a book first and then watch its movie(if there is one) to see how the director imagines the scene to be like. :)

permalink If you are reading a rather large book you can throw it at people that are bothering you in your coffee shop.

Currently there is a mime in the coffee shop that I am in and if they get any closer they are going to get a Janet Evanocik novel right in the kisser.

permalink I love books because what you take from them and what you envision as you read them is uniquely your own and is relevant to who you really are. There's no set image or message like in t.v. or movies. You are free to shape things any way you wish and to get lost in your own world.

permalink I always enjoys the tactile sensation of books. You can basically get all the classic free on the internet these days. Still, there is something special about sitting down with a leather bound book on a cold winters night and reading about huck Finn or the Time Machine.

permalink favorite past time - reading books.
Although I'm really picky which books to read I have the tendency to finish the book right away. I have this eagerness to know the story right away.
I'm always amazed with authors.. It's not easy to create a good/unique plot with original characters that people would appreciate.
Like music..it also inspires and inform us.

permalink When reality becomes too much,a cup of green tea and a good book makes it all go away. Moments later,when the chapter or three are finished,reality doesn't seem so hectic.

permalink For me is that when you read them they led you to another world, is like you are so much into the story that you become one of the characters, if not the main, and is like when you stop reading it always keep you in there and sometimes i cannot distinguished from real to not-real, so that's why i love books. :)

permalink The ideas it puts in your head. You can think as you read,what if I was there. What if someone like this was there. How can I bring that to reality? The ideas, thoughts, visions, dreams. When you bring them to life, through a story of your own inspired by a simple phrase or an invention inspired by a word or thought you read once. It changes the world! I love escaping the world and forgetting where I am for a while but then bringing part of that world with me back home to reality makes it sooo much better<3 However that's just my humble opinion.

permalink the best thing about books is that you can use your imagination while your reading and picture everything in your head! I guess thats why I never really liked books cuz I wanted pictures but when I read Twilight (my first book) it took me a while to picture things but during New Moon it all came simple

permalink You can imagine the world in the book as you want to see. You can go on a journey with the characters far from reality. It's just relaxing :) I prefer to hold books in my hands not read them on the computer it just hurt my eyes and holding a book has got a special feeling too :)
