I love reading the synopses on the backs of books. Thumbing through the pages as the smell of freshly printed paper tickles my nose.

A book -- in printed form -- is a rare thing today. Call me a dinosaur, just like the printed page, but I love seeing how far I've read and how much book I have left to read. Feeling sad once you finish that very last page because now you have to say goodbye to the characters you've grown to love while reading the book.

Today is Book Lovers Day. My favorite books are the Sookie Stackhouse series, which is what the "True Blood" TV series is based on. Also, the "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy.

What are your favorite books?
