I need some help if someone knows some thing on reading-
i have never read.

I have tried several websites after googling how to find
the ideal book or the right book, perfec book.
And i have spent 90 minutes at a library and my time has
expired.
One site shared a book personality test.
It was helpful. But i am broke and only want books that are
available at a library.
I am embarrassed but i didnt get to love myself.
And now i want to learn to read and get comfortable with
my self.
I dont like violence or sex.
..and a little fiction or disney, fantasy would be nice
i dont know what else..
can any one help
gotta to go this is going to log offf.
any time
i am sorry to bother

Goran

I would go to the book store man
when you are there you can go into the fantasy section or any section really get something that looks interesting and try to read some there. MANY students do that. after a while you will find authors that you like and can build from there.
hope that helps

Really Newground , thanks ! I love it when everyone puts
time in writing to all of us.

Anyway after writing this yesterday... i asked a librarian
on the first floor , my problem..
she said to ask up on the second floor and they can help.
It felt good!
And i decided to talk to the largest library here by phone..and
the guy on the phone sounded very nice and helpful.
I was so embarrased but am proud of myself.

Thanks to YOU and all Newground.

Glad you found someone to help. Hope you found something good to read? I like to read a lot of kids books. I pretty much never read adult books. Maybe when I feel like a real grown up I might start reading them. I do feel kind of weird in the kids section of the library, so I usually reserve them online then I can just pick them up at the desk. Anything by Roald Dahl is usually good. Danny the Champion of the World is especially good. Terry Pratchett writes some really good fantasy books. Some for kids and some for adults. I really liked Lemony Snickett's A Series of Unfortunate Events as a kid, I'm planning on reading them again soon. I'm reading the Secret of Platform 13 by Eva Ibbotson right now.

I like the graphic novel section too (graphic as in pictures, like comic books). Stuff like the X-Men, Spiderman etc. I really liked this series by Joe Hill called Locke and Key, though it's kind of creepy and a bit scary. Hilda and the Midnight Giant is one of the cutest stories I ever read. I read The Hobbit as a graphic novel recently and I really liked that too.

Check out what services your library has online too. Mine has ebooks, audiobooks and magazines you can download. I thought audio books would be good to listen to while I was doing other stuff, but I discovered that I can't listen and do other things at the same time.

i highly recommend you read

- SOPHIE'S WORLD
by Jostein Gaarder

- ZEN (and the art of motorcycle maintenance)
by Robert Pirsig

- LILA (an inquiry into morals)
by Robert Pirsig

- OZ (14 different novels)
by L.Frank Baum

no sex, no violence, excellent value.

that should keep you occupied for this year,
if you should decide take my advice.
