Every now and then; I like to get an older book to read. As long as I find the book interesting; I will read it. It does not really matter to me what the book is about. The oldest book I have ever read was from the 1870's. I had to handle this book with care because it was falling apart. Do you like to read older books.

I studied English and Russian literature at uni and read enough old books during those years. Now I prefer new ones. I'm interested in contemporary literature. Besides, I like the smell of new books.

What are your 3 favorite books that you have read beside the Bible (which is one of the oldest books ever written)?

The oldest book I read was on the Free Mason. I like to get old history or science books. I like to see their way of thinking back then.

@Scrapper88 I see! I used to read a lot of books. Tale Of Two Cities was one that I really liked.

I would like to read an old book. But something I can grasp. I don't know if I could handle that old english much. But I do have to say I did read some Edgar Alan Poe stories with old english. It was interesting. I like the digital version of books but I still enjoy the real deal. Holding the book in my hands and reading it page by page. There is something about the real book. Like listening to vinyl records opposed to digital.

I do have books from the 19th century belonging to my grandparents, but have not read them yet.
