bookmania

I love books! oh no.. I'm crazy about them! not particularly the lovely dovely novels gals love to read over a cup of hot coffee. my fav also includes non-fictions. Now that I'm trying to learn Photoshop, I've been borrowing considerable number of related titles from the library. And some statistical books as well. oh yea, forget to mention medical books! just wanna maximize my stay in this university. hahahaha..

Talking about library, its heaven on earth for me. the smell of books - old and new. the quiet atmosphere. the clean tables. I just love everything and anything about libraries. I was a librarian when i was still schooling - only to be close to the books! selfish eh? :P I was used to be crazier (compared to now) when I was in school. I basically read everything readable. I don't have any fav authors or titles. I remember reading dictionaries - page by page. There have been instances when I sat at the bus stop for hours just to finish the book I just borrowed. and yes, I came home very very late that day. can still remember my mom's grumbles.

Old habits die hard nah? I'm still crazy about books, if not more crazy. I don't how many people have a copy of Federal Constitution, but I have one which now looks in a deplorable condition ;) I make it a point to wander around in my fav bookstore in a shopping mall here, whenever i can. Book rental stores, second hand bookshops, exhibitions (small or huge) and libraries also sometimes become my second home.

I will have my very own library one day. A huge one of course.

So what your fascination is about?

Honestly, reading with the intention of learning something is so interesting over reading for timepass!
My fascination, well, I'd love to write a book of poems one day! :D :D

I prefer the term "philophile" to "bookworm" ;)

I too love books, and can even read the pieces of paper which are used to pack groceries. Though my favourites lie firmly in fiction domain.

No favourite author or book? I find that hard to think of... If you have more than one, can we have a list of reviews?

Awesome and I have started reading books too these days. I shud thank my friend who motivate me to read books.

Reading is really a very good habit. In my school days its very hard for my mom to make me read books, but today my favorite habit is reading books, papers and what every improves our knowledge.

My advance wishes for ur library. read more, achieve more:)
