Hi there, My name is Clarisse..
I wanted to tell you. I’m not different. I’m not arty like everyone says who doesn’t know me, I don’t paint, I can’t draw, I play no instruments. I like movies, everyone knows I do- I do love them. I am an avid reader and coffee drinker. I write nonsense and taking pictures. I am a homebody but I really wanted to travel everywhere, when I have time and of course a budget. I love to eat, I love chocolates, pizza, pasta. I am a coffee addict.
I love to read too.. Books bring me to wonderland, into different places, meeting every characters in it, knowing their point of view, their thoughts, until we became friends. In books I learn so many things and books are uniquely portable magic.
Paper Books and E-books, I love them both..
E-books are convenient and A LOT cheaper (I’ve downloaded more than a hundred books already, which I sadly can’t do in a month in real life) but nothing beats the feeling of removing the plastic from a newly purchased book, sniffing the pages and feeling the pages beneath your fingertips and the smell of books – in fact, just walking into a library or bookstore and smelling the familiar scent of old books makes me happy.
Readers are readers no matter where the words are placed together. It doesn’t matter to me if the words are on a computer screen, the back of a cereal box, between two covers, on the back of someone’s hand or carved upon a stone. If there is a story to be told, my curiosity is piqued and I must read it. It’s a compulsion. My fetish is with the written word, not the paper that it is written upon.
