Reader Confessions Tag
I stumbled across this awesome tag over at Reads and Treats— thanks, Kendra!
1. Have you ever damaged a book?
Yes. And I did it… ON PURPOSE!
NUUUUUUUUUUH! you say. HOW DARE YOU?! I hear you exclaim.
Honestly? I bought the books. I destroyed the books. I don’t feel bad about it.
Also, I took a book arts class in college, soooo…
2. Have you ever damaged a borrowed book?
I don’t think so. But I don’t borrow books.
3. How long does it take you to read a book?
It depends. On my days off, I can EASILY finish 1-2 books (sometimes 3, depending on length!) During the work week…I get through maybe 1, if I’m lucky? So… usually about 3 a week, sometimes more, sometimes less.
4. Books that you haven’t finished?
I know my reading tastes well enough, I usually don’t buy books that I end up not liking. Every now and then one sneaks onto my reading list (usually in the form of retellings) But…I haven’t DNFed a book in a while.
5. Hyped/Popular books that you don’t like?
Let’s burst some bubbles here, shall we?!
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Ransom Riggs);
Obsidian (Jennifer L. Armentrout);
The Princess Diaries (Meg Cabot);
Red Queen (Victoria Aveyard);
Vicious (V.E. Schwab);
Eleanor & Park (Rainbow Rowell)
6. Is there a book you wouldn’t tell anyone you were reading?
Nawww, I’m pretty open with my reading. If people don’t like it, too bad, stuff and fluff–they can go shove themselves with marshmallows.
7. How many books do you own?
Print books is somewhere around 800? Ebooks is more like 300.
8. Are you a fast reader or a slow reader?
This TOTALLY depends on several things. First, I tend to fly through ebooks, where with print books I read much slower (someone explain this to me? I don’t get it) Second…if I’m not real invested in the book? I take MUCH longer, because it starts feeling like a chore instead of like fun.
9. Do you like to buddy read?
YES! YES! YES!!!!! Seriously, guys, feel free to approach me about buddy reads–my door is always open!
10. Do you read better in your head or out loud?
Er…in my head, I guess? I do read aloud to the husband, though–mostly Terry Pratchett, because those books BEG to be read aloud–and he doesn’t seem to mind it, so… maybe you should ask him?
11. If you were only allowed to own one book, what would it be and why?
My Kindle! Because technically it’s ONE book…….that holds literally as many books as you want it to at any given moment. ONE book, countless reading possibilities. Smart, right?!
And anyone else who wants to do this thing!
As always, no pressure–if I’ve tagged you and you don’t wanna, don’t do the thing!
