I love reading. LOVE IT.
In my opinion, it’s one of the greatest pleasures in life and when I finally kick the bucket I know one of my big regrets will be that I didn’t spend more time reading books.
These tweets are by bookworms and for bookworms.
If you’re part of the tribe, then you’ll enjoy them immensely.
1. That’s the Good Book to many.
Priest: Do you read to your kids from the Good Book?
Me: Every night
Priest: What's their favorite part?
Me: When Frodo destroys the ring

3. Hey o! A little book humor.
Why doesn't George R.R. Martin use twitter? Because he killed all 140 characters. #gameofthrones

4. I hear you…
I worry too much over the happiness and well being of fictional characters.

5. That’s a great idea, actually.
I'll start reading a Kindle when they make it smell like a book.

6. Sure, I’m listening…
If you need me I'll be "uh-huh"ing the shit out of my family while I finish this really good book.

7. Smart kid.
A little girl just ran into the library screaming

9. I’ll see you in the True Crime section.
You never really know a person until you set them loose in a large bookstore. What I mean is, you will never GET the chance to know them. They are gone now. The books have claimed them.

10. That is awesome.
I lost my mother in law last week. She was 96 and one of my best friends. A lifelong lover of books, she kept track of all she read on index cards and recorded her opinion in code. This is the key to her code and the cards we found among her belongings. pic.twitter.com/Iabmek9B7F

13. Probably not a good idea.
If you get invited to a Game of Thrones-themed wedding this summer, don't go.

14. I agree wholeheartedly.
You should be able to call into work because you're mourning the end of a really good book.

15. They’re called “books”.
Just overheard someone say, "I wish I had a Kindle that never ran out of batteries."
You know. Like a book.

Those tweets spoke to my soul!
Now, if I could just get through the HUGE stack of books that I still need to get through before I can buy any more…
