"A Book" - by Emily Dickinson

There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away
Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
That bears a human soul!

As modern technology advances, should the age-old favourite pastime of curling up with a good book disappear into obscurity? No way! Even in our modern world, there's nothing more satisfying than reading a good book, and that's why we're here. recommendaread believes reading is an essential ingredient for the soul, for the well-being and cultivation of humanity. There are books out there that need to be read and could be enjoyed as much by a reluctant reader as an avid one. Consequently, we want to promote quality reading - if you've read a great book, if something has captured your heart, we want to know about it! Fiction, non-fiction, poetry, whatever - if you love it, share it with the rest of us so we can love it too!


1. Post anything you like - reviews, discussions, and so on - as long as it's relevant.

2. No spamming. Spam will be deleted.

3. PLEASE PUT SPOILERS UNDER A CUT and warn the other members there is a spoiler within. PLEASE don't post endings without a cut and a warning. It's no fun reading a new book if you know the outcome. Thanks.
