The lovely Stacie over at Books Galore tagged me to participate in this post. It’s basically a list of book-related questions on topics that I may or may not have mentioned on the blog before – mainly to help you guys get to know me even better! So without further ado, let’s get started!
What are your top three book hates?
- Broken spines
- Bent or torn covers
- Missing pages
Describe your perfect reading spot.
Either in bed, with the pillows just right, or in a comfy armchair with a blanket and a purring kitten.
Tell us three book confessions.
- I have been known to buy a book I already have because I like a new edition better.
- I don’t lend books out to people because I’ve had too many returned in bad shape. But I have a hard time telling non-bookish people this, so sometimes I’ll lie and say I don’t have a book or that I’ve already lent it out to someone else.
- I very often judge books by their covers.
When was the last time you cried while reading?
The Fault In Our Stars. Oh my god, the tears!
How many books are on your bedside?
Probably 10-20 – I use the shelves in my bedside table as extra bookshelves, plus the one or two I’m currently reading that sit on top. So yeah, lots.
What is your favourite snack while reading?
It’s not exactly a snack – but the best thing while reading is a cup of rooibos chai tea. Yum.
Name three books you’d recommend to everyone.
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, The Fault In Our Stars by John Green and a recent addition – The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin (though it was a close call between this and The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow by Rita Leganski).
Show us a picture of your favourite bookshelf or bookcase.
Scroll up to the top of the page…. there ya go.
Write how much books mean to you in three words.
My best friends.
