    My name is Pearlsim and I am also addicted to books. I had my last fix about 50 seconds ago. And I loved it and I want more.

I buy books by the dozens and read two or three of them at a time. Sometimes I stockpile books to read later. I would rather read a good book than just about anything.

    Glad I got that off my chest.

    (Hi, Cherokee)

    Hi, everyone. Uh, like I said, my name is Cherokee, and I'm addicted to books. I've had this addiction since I was young, and it's only gotten worse through the years. I admit it. I love books. I love the way they feel, the way the look and especially their contents. When I go to a bookstore, I get this rush of serotonin you wouldn't believe just being around them. There have been times when I've been in "book crisis," and I've had to go out and buy even more bookshelves to hold all the books I have. I know in my heart of hearts that someday, somehow, I will get to read them all. In the meantime, I'll keep working through my stack of "must read now" books that never seems to get any smaller. I don't know why that is. Maybe it's because I keep finding MORE BOOKS I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT!

    Thanks for listening. I never knew Books Anonymous existed until WY and Pearlsim invited me here. It's so good to know there are others out there like me.

    Um, what's that? You're getting up a carload to Barnes & Noble?! Hey, I call shotgun!!!

    Oh...how LOOOOOOOW the Guttah has sunk....

    Apparently another thing it can buy is an apology for even being suspected of a crime you probably already would have been convicted of committing if you happened to be poor.'"

    Thumbs up Me too!

    Hi my name is Zoomama and I'm addicted to books and books and more books. I have floor to ceiling bookcases to two rooms and they are full. I donated lots of older books to the library sale a few weeks ago but have to admit that I also threw away some of the less than older ones that I've had just gathering dust. I belong to a book of the month club from a Mystery book store in Hollywood that sends a signed first edition of a new author. I've read almost all of them and I have to say some are good and some aren't. They are all mysteries of some sort. I do read other types of books but mysteries are my favorites. I"m in the process of reorganizing my books because I have received 2 to 3 years worth of the monthly books and haven't shelved them in alphabetical order yet. I'm very lax in that little job. Can I be helped or shall I just continue with my mess?

    I have many signed books from here and there. I stood in line for 3 hours to get an autographed book from Bette Davis years ago. I'm glad I did. I also have a series of books signed by Irving Stone the biographer. I also have the entire 14 book series signed by Janet Evonavich (yes, even number 1).

    Oh I could go on and on but since this is the first meeting of the book owners anonymous or the BOA I'll yield the floor to other speakers.

    You forgot their SMELL. Who can resist the SMELL of a book? I am a bookslut - I take at least two books to bed with me every night and then decide which one I'm going to go to sleep with. Junkie is too mild a word for what I am.

    Hi my name is Show Me and I too am addicted to books.

    I knew I had a problem when, at a young age, I first read "Dick and Jane"....the thrill of reading 'See spot run'! The Sunday comics were more than mere pictures....a secret world had opened up to me.

    My lunch money went for the printed word....as WY said, the smell of new books is intoxicating!

    I've never been able to break the habit! I tried stopping a few times and take up tv instead...and yet I found myself reading road signs, labels on the aspirin bottle, people's t-shirts...I'm hopeless.

    Libraries haven't a chance around me....hahahaha....I'd love to bring a truck to the library, check out a thousand books and lock myself up in my house reading for days on end. Alas real life intrudes on my habit.

    My favorite books are non fiction, especially history. If I want a book to make me laugh I read the fiction book DOI.

    I will be addicted to books until the day I die. Even if I go blind I will listen to books on cds and visualize the printed words.

    Hi my name is Thor and I addicted to books as well. To he!! with Dick and Jane, I used to bring home my math books from school and become absorbed in them. My whole family was addicted to books, my mom in particular, so my addiction probably is inherited.

    My addiction now mainly includes horror novels, mysteries, true crime and tabloids. And biographies.
    I despise the Ramseys and this is just my opinion

    Hello- my name is DeeDee and I am addicted to books. There is always a pile of hardcover books on my nightstand waiting for me to read. I've read before bed since I was three (my mother was blind her whole life, I learned to read very young- by helping her in the grocery store); instead of her reading to me, I read to her!
    I usually read non-fiction (which is why I haven't read DOI). My favorite subjects, besides this case, are the paranormal and biographies. (the Tom Cruise one is my read right now).
    I also keep books in the car, because I tend to annoy my husband when he drives, so I read and this way I leave him alone, though sometimes I watch DVDs in the car.
    Then again, I tend to annoy my husband at other times as well...it's what I live for.

    Hi, I'm Tez, and I am also addicted to books. I have read five books this week alone! Currently my interests are John Sanford books. Only the ones with Lucas Davenport. I also devour true crime and mystery books. No sappy love stories for me! I also love biographies. I am currently reading one about Princess Diana. I love the smell of books also! It's a smell I can't live without!

    The above is just my opinion, right or wrong, but please leave it at FFJ.

    Hi Tez- I love Princess Diana (actually all the Royals on the other side of the Pond) biographies also. I've read quite a few. The Tom Cruise unauthorized biography was written by Andrew Morton, who wrote 2 books on Princess Diana.

    Hi, I'm Heymom, and I'm a book addict...Thanks for your share...I heard a lot of things in it that I can relate to...I prefer non-fiction too. I used to bring my history book home from school the first day and read it from cover to cover while sitting in the bathtub. Drove the teachers NUTS!

    My unofficial motto is "So many books, too little time!" I really would like to read every book ever written if I could manage it. I am curious about all things and find writing fascinating. Well, all except romance novels, that is!

    And Thank GOD for Amazon.com!!! I don't even have to leave my house to get new and wonderful BOOKS! They come to me!!! Ecstasy!!
