Sunday Confessions (1) - What do you love most about reading??


"Sunday Confessions is a weekly meme started by Marcie at To Read or Not to Read, as a way to get to share a bit about herself and also learning more about me and you. Sometimes its about books and book related topics and sometimes it's not. This is all in good fun and I would love it if you would participate."
This week's question:
What do you love most about reading?

I love reading. There's nothing better than getting lost in a good book. Swept into another world, getting to know characters, and reading their stories. It's a great escape for me.

I read as a child, but once I hit my teen years, I was more interested in boys, music and driving. I recently got back into reading now that my kids are all in school, and I am absolutely loving it. I am addicted to Young Adult, I don't know what it is, but I just can't get enough.

I am so thankful for blogs/twitter/goodreads, so that I can talk to other's who share my passion. I don't know many people IRL that share my passion for reading, and I'm so glad to find other's that do!

Now... what do you love most about reading???

  1. Christy, I think I went through a period in my early teen years when I didn't read a lot either. I love the bookish community too. There are so many wonderful peeps and my TBR pile has grown a lot also. LOL Thanks for participating in this week's Sunday Confessions. Have a great week!

  2. Like you, I see reading as a kind of escape. Sometimes things are too much to deal with and you need a break. The only way I can get that for the last couple of years is through a good book or music. I wished I would of started when I was younger, it feels like I'm trying to catch up.

  3. Marcie, I'm glad I'm not the only one that went through that period. :) I'm thrilled to be reading again. And I love meeting new people!

    Hi Petra! Reading is definitely a much needed escape. And after so much stress sometimes, it's awesome just to have a getaway. :) I feel like I'm trying to catch up too! SOOO many books! :)
