One of the books i'm currently reading is written by a sci-fi master
Ray Bradbury Stories Volume 1: v. 1
A Sound of Thunder will always be my favourite by him.

Our local recycling group that gives out free books, made a giant male part from the Fifty Shade's of Grey books they had....I never saw it but they were planing to make more from the amount of books they had handed in....

I am , since my childhood , a book-worm. I love books and I keep my books always with me in shelves. Of course, some books I finally send to the libraries, so they can be read by others, but my favorite authors I collect compulsively. Some books will never change hands, because I read them over and over again. They are part of my priceless possessions (the others possessions being DVDs and CDs). I cannot think in exchanging my paper books for the Kindle- format because the brightness of the computer tires my eyes. And I carry a book everywhere with me. There is not for me a more restful moment than being alone with one book among the noise and the tiresome chitchat of people that cannot stop talking! So, when I buy a book, I make an index of it in my archives, and when I give one book away is always with some regret. I gave away my childhood books to my school library because I had then more interesting books than the library in my little school. Because I read books in four languages (portuguese, english, spanish and french) it is very common that friends that work in libraries of the schools of languages ( school for english or french in Brazil) ask me to give my used books to their libraries , and so I really already gave a third of the books I had at home. Now I still buy books, even second-hand books (I always find a very good bargain in very good conditions in second-hand stores and in the Amazon sites). My family (mother and siblings) also love to read, so it is common that I buy a book and then they "borrow" it from me (they never give back my books!). But I think I am lucky. My love of books made me learn three languages and with them I manage to always feel well , even in the direst circunstances. So, used or new, already readen or recently adquired, I LOVE MY BOOKS!
