Everyone has a reason for reading books.. I do it because its an escapism for me, where I get transferred to another realm in a matter of seconds, and I love it! 

I love light readings & chick lit most of the time, love biographies and true stories sometimes, love motivational books when I'm down & love spiritual books when I'm in need of directions.. 

I hate stories that are too heavy and too heart wrenching.. Like movies, books are supposed to inspire & make you feel better.. If it brings you down and make you sad for weeks, then what's the point, really!

Oh ya! I do judge a book by its cover..

p/s: when in doubt, just get me a book or a book voucher.. (hint hint..)
