Welcome to my world.
Reading is my Obsession. It's what keeps me going in this crazy messed up world. it's like entering a world were everything is exciting, everything is new. And your getting a glimpse into someone's life that is way more interesting then yours. :) I read in class, i read instead of doing homework, I've even once not gone to sleep at all one night because i had to find out how a book ended. Needless to say, it is my Obsession.

This is for :iconsarahxjane:'s Contest.

Again texture is not mine, don't know where i got it. If you know please tell me :)

Model: Me

[edit] Ohh in case anyone wondered the book I'm holding up is The Book Thief By Markus Zusac
and he's an AMAZING author, everyone should read his books.

I identified the book without even having to be told what book it was! This is a good photo though ;)

Dear bypolar-bear,

I'm working as a freelancer for different german publishing houses (cover designs, layouts ... - oh yes, one of the best jobs in the world - first create the book, then read them ;-) and would love to use this awesome pic "Read" and the wonderful "Read 2"-pic for my work, credited to you, of course - would it be okay? I'd link you the result when used in a web project or upload the page or cover when used in a print project. What do you think?

Thank you so far - greets!

I am so proud that I was able to identify the book you're holding up without reading the author's note. :)

This is an amazing picture! Looks a lot like my world, too.

I think that they are not as bad as everyone thinks they are, but they also not as good as everyone thinks they are either.

Awesome! I have never heard of any of those except Harry Potter.
I have a list of books people have recommended. Now I just need to find the time to read them all!
I have read through book 4 in Harry Potter and part way through five.

lol ya I've been like that too.
I would finally go to bed, and then I would wake up and my hands would be in the position of holding a book, or I would wake up looking for my bookmark b4 I lost my place. Nedless to say I dream like this all the time thou. Oh the horrible high school band dreams.
Anywayyyys....
Ya I also used to read in class and draw to. I hated math so thats my main class. Ya thats probably the reason I'm so horrible at it also.

I'm the same way! I absolutely love reading. It's my escape. I love being able to enter someone else's world and forget about mine.
Anyways, nice picture. I like the unorganized fashion of the book piles, and the editing you did after. It looks really nice.
