Gentle Pain mixed with
I'm a voracious bibliophile who enjoys getting lost in worlds created by others. One day I could be a mermaid; the next a vampire hunter. Books transport me away from the daily grind.
The best authors make me want to stay in the world they create, never leaving to face the cold harsh realities of bills, taxes and work. I tend to enjoy the authors who generate the strong emotions from me.
The more engaged I am with the characters, the better I enjoy the book, even if the feeling is of sorrow and anger. I read books like I live life, with intensity.
