I was visiting blogs to check out their Stacking the Shelves/The Sunday Post when I stumbled upon this the 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge hosted by Good Books and Good Wine. If you want to learn more about this challenge, just click HERE. I think the idea of it is brilliant. But with me… well, it would be more like a 15 Week Book Blogger Challenge than a 15 Day one. We’ll see.
Anyways the topic for Day 1 is…
Make 15 book related confessions.
So here I go.
- Sometimes, I kind of do judge a book by it’s cover. I don’t know why I do it, I don’t like doing it, but it happens. When I’m browsing for books in a bookstore or the library, I often feel more inclined to look more into a book with a prettier cover.
- Sometimes, I like to skip to the end of the book and read the ending just to see if the rest of the book (the beginning) is worth reading. I hate books with bad endings.
- I always, always, always, have to read the book before the movie… unless I didn’t know there was a book. Yes, there have been times I watched a movie without knowing it was adapted from a book.
- My TBR pile is never ending. It’s kind of like the scarves a magician pulls out of his/her sleeve. You know, the ones that seems that they never end. Yeah, well, that’s my TBR pile. Except it never ends.
- I still prefer physical books instead of e-books.
- But I don’t HATE e-books either.
- Sometimes I read and eat at the same time. Yes, sometimes I end up getting food on the book, but I only have so much time, and a never ending TBR pile.
- I will always support B&N… unless they do something really wrong.
- I don’t like audio books. Why? Because sometimes I’ll tune out while listening to them.
- Books were my best, best friends when I was younger. They still are. Not that I didn’t have any friends (I do), it’s just that I felt I could always depend on books… my “friends” not so much.
- The YA and Children’s librarians, along with a few ladies at the circulation desk of my library know me by name. Yeah, that’s how many times I visit the library. Maybe it’s because I always have a book on hold, or maybe it’s because I volunteer there. Hmmm…
- Back to judging books by their covers, sometimes I judge people by their books. Never read Harry Potter? Read it but hated it? You’re not my friend, and probably will never be. Hated a book that I loved without a good reason, well, I’m not your friend, and you aren’t mine.
- I spend a LOT of time thinking about books. And Mom, no, I am not wasting my time.
- Books sometimes have the ability to make me cry. Granted, it’s not as hard as I would like to claim.
- Reading and books are my LIFE (and sometimes lifeline and lifesaver). But you knew that already right?
