The greatest friend is a book.

What do you think? For me, I like reading novels. They used to accompany me when I feel lonely, or when I am down. But since I have been using the internet, I find that books no longer interest me as much as internet is. So what do you think? What or who is your greatest friend?

I generally dislike novels which runs into 300 to 400 pages. I prefer short story books. You try OHenry's book on Short stories. You will enjoy reading it. Have you read a novel by Ayn Rand's FOUNTAIN HEAD. It is a great book which will inspire you to be a perfectionist.

Thanks, pal. This is a great gift from a true friend. I'll search for this novel as soon as I can step my two feet on the bookstore.

You read this book twice - once for the story and another time to understand the hidden meaning of life - percetionism. Thanks for the comment.

I agree with you technology spoils us and rob us from our time! But I agree there is nothing that comes near curling up alone with a good book!

I would agree that novels do that to you sometimes. I am a fan of reading alots of books and they usually get to be one of my greatest friend.

The internet does tend to spoil us, but there is nothing like reading a good old fashioned book. I use the internet quite frequently, but I do sit down and read before I go to bed. I like to read and it is one of my favorite things to do. Books are my best friend!
