If you're a book-lover, then you can definitely relate to the confessions below:

1- “I have lived a thousand lives and I’ve loved a thousand loves. I’ve walked on distant worlds and seen the end of time. Because I read.” 

― George R.R. Martin

2- “I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” 
― Jorge Luis Borges

3- " between the pages of a book is a book, is a wonderful place to be"

“I was burning through books every day - stories about people and places I'd never heard of. They were perhaps the only thing that kept me from teetering into utter despair.” 

― Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Mist and Fury

5- “I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.” 

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

6- “I read a book one day and my whole life was changed.” 

― Orhan Pamuk

7- “I spent my life folded between the pages of books. In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts, and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.” 

― Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

8- “I don't believe in the kind of magic in my books. But I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.”

― J.K. Rowling

9- “I do things like get in a taxi and say, "The library, and step on it.”

― David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

10- “I cannot sleep unless I am surrounded by books.”

― Jorge Luis Borges

11- “I lived in books more than I lived anywhere else.”

― Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

12- “I love books, by the way, way more than movies. Movies tell you what to think. A good book lets you choose a few thoughts for yourself. Movies show you the pink house. A good book tells you there's a pink house and lets you paint some of the finishing touches, maybe choose the roof style,park your own car out front. My imagination has always topped anything a movie could come up with. Case in point, those darned Harry Potter movies. That was so not what that part-Veela-chick, Fleur Delacour, looked like.”

― Karen Marie Moning, Darkfever

13- “I had already found that it was not good to be alone, and so made companionship with what there was around me, sometimes with the universe and sometimes with my own insignificant self; but my books were always my friends, let fail all else.”

― Joshua Slocum, Sailing Alone around the World

14- “It's not that I don't like people. It's just that when I'm in the company of others - even my nearest and dearest - there always comes a moment when I'd rather be reading a book.”

― Maureen Corrigan, Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading: Finding and Losing 

15- “I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.”

― L.M. Montgomery

16- “When I discovered libraries, it was like having Christmas every day.”

― Jean Fritz

17- “I love the way that each book—any book—is its own journey. You open it, and off you go….”

― Sharon Creech


18- “I love books. I like that the moment you open one and sink into it you can escape from the world, into a story that's way more interesting that yours will ever be.”

― Elizabeth Scott, Bloom

― John Waters

― Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale

24- “I understood books. I did not understand boys—especially alien boys.”

― Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx
