Books I ....

I love reading...
Ever since I remember myself being able to spell words, I rememeber the fascination and excitement it is to open a new book, to unveil the stories, dramas, mystery and magic brought by the pages of books.
A book is a treasure of knowledge. Books are meant to be touched, to be read and they certainly can offer us so much...
I love reading a book, and I always read whenever I can.
So, from time to time, I'll write about one.

Here is the first book review!

A Fórmula de Deus is the lastest book I read. It was a Christmas gift.
José Rodrigues dos Santos, the author, a well-known journalist, is a master with words. The plot contains all the right ingredients to keep readers in suspense till the end. The story is plausible, and what I most admire in his books is the scientific knowledge and rigour, combined with interesting characters.
The almost six hundred pages capture your attention all the way...no one gets bored.
I loved it...

Hmmm... I love reading too... But, it's difficult to have time to do it...
In this moment, I'm reading "O Crime do Padre Amaro" of Eça de Queirós, because I'm studying this book in Portuguese... I'm enjoying it... It's the first book of this author that I read, and I like the way that he writes (in spite of some long descriptions)... I love realism, and this book shows us it... He characterizes everything with a lot of details, and in my opinion I think that it's important for we can imagine the story, characters, landscapes...

I love to feel books...
When I'm reading, I forget where I am in that moment and who I am in reality... I "entry" in the story's world and, it's wonderful when we can feel characters' emotions and to understand their thoughts... Sometimes I find myself smiling or not, because of a book...

For me, fantastic books are those that give much more than a story, they show us different feelings and, sometimes it affect our emotions... With a book, we can cry, smile and laugh a lot! And... NO!! Words, in itself, are not the key of the success, I think that it's the combination of them, that is to say, to join perfect expressions that really express what author felt when he wrote the book...

Hi!!!
I also love reading...
I think books are an amazing thing, 'cause we can learn many new things(some of them, very important to our life)...

Yesterday, I bought a new book... And this is a very good one... It is "Bono por Bono", it's write like an interview and it talks about the U2 lead singer.
When I started to read it, I... Don't know... It's a wonderfull feeling... I couldn't stop...

I'm also ending to read "Mary Popins" (in english)... I know that, firstly I must end this book and then start "Bono por Bono"... But... I couldn't resist....
The book was looking to me... I was looking to the book... and then... I lost myself in its pages... It's what happen when I fall in love with a book... :) LOL!!!

A BIG *KISS*

I also like to read. In this moment, I’m read “O crime do Padre Amaro” of Eça de Queirós. My friends and I are reading and analysing this book, in Portuguese.
Read enrich our culture, our vocabulary, our knowledge and allow us dream and imagine. When we read a book, we try imagining the local of story, the movement of characters, and often, the emotions of characters. I think that books help us to grow, to think, to feel and allow us travel for the world.

I love read... but, the book must be very good, without too much description, because when it is, well... it gets boring!
One of the greatest things about it is how we imagine the described situations.
It's funny picture someone just reading. It's a travel to another world, we forget what is around us and we get into a diferent place... and we can see everything that is hapening. Even smell and touch is possible in this unreal world.
It's fascinating!!
