Alrighty, let’s get started!
1. Have you ever damaged a book?
Not that I can think of right off hand. I’m sure I have at some point even if it was just water damage from the rain. Luckily I only read eBooks now so it’s kind of hard to damage one that way.
2. Have you ever damaged a borrowed book?
I’m normally really careful with books I’ve borrowed from the library or a friend/teacher. Again, it’s possible. But not that I can clearly remember.
3. How long does it take you to read a book?
That really depends on the book, when I’m trying to read it (all during the work week/ weekends), and how many pages it has. Typically I read books really quickly. My whole family comments about that.
4. Books that you haven’t finished?
I can only think of 1 book that I started reading and never finished. Fifty Shades of Grey. I know shame on me, but I really just wasn’t a fan. I couldn’t get interested in it. I even kept giving it chances. I even read half of the book before giving up! That’s my only DNF, I’m the type of person that if I start something I have to finish it.
5. Hyped/Popular books that you don’t like?
Again, for sure Fifty Shades of Grey. I have never read the Harry Potter books or any Stephen King book.
6. Is there a book you wouldn’t tell anyone you were reading?
LOL No, I can’t think of anything I would actually read that I wouldn’t want to tell anyone about.
7. How many books do you own?
As of Saturday October 15, 2016 at 8:09PM (obviously when I’m writing this) I have 180 books on my Kindle app. Which is pretty good considering I just switched over to eBooks sometime around the middle of the year.
8. Are you a fast reader or a slow reader?
Definitely a fast reader. But not like a speed reader because I can’t process what I’m reading. lol
9. Do you like to buddy read?
I’m not EXACTLY sure what you mean by that, but any scenario I can think of is a definite NO. I like to read at my own pace for as long or as little as I want. I don’t want another person to determine my reading pace (why I don’t do book clubs). I like when others have read the same books as I have so I can talk about the books with them, but other than that I’m a solo reader.
10. Do you read better in your head or out loud?
I never read out loud. So I guess that means in my head.
11. If you were only allowed to own one book, what would it be and why?
AHHHHH, why one book? I could never imagine this scenario. How am I supposed to choose? Can I just glue a couple of them together and call it one book? LOL I’m not sure I could actually do this but for the purposes of this book tag, I would have to say…. for sure a Jodi Picoult book because she is just an amazing author. The exact book of her’s from the ones I have read, I would have to choose… Small Great Things. It’s such a powerful novel that could teach so many people so many things. It had a strong impact on me and I know it would on others as well. I love a book that can make you learn something about yourself and that’s exactly what it did. Huge eye opener.
