Hey guys! I saw this tag over at Kendra’s blog, Reads and Treats! She invited everyone to participate! Thanks Kendra!
1. Have you ever damaged a book?
Sadly yes. There’s actually also a funny story behind one incident. I was in first grade and I must have book one book within another. My teacher gave us all a lecture on how wrong it was and how it messed up the spine. I remember just sitting there feeling so guilty! She never found out it was me.
2. Have you ever damaged a borrowed book?
Hmmm…not sure. Does from the library count? I know that someone once damaged mine. I was so mad!
3. How long does it take you to read a book?
If I really like it, a couple of weeks. Sometimes I read books really slow though.
4. Books that you haven’t finished?
Sadly, a lot. I love to read, it’s just a bad habit. Let’s see there’s Zoo by James Patterson (a good show by the way), The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown, and Missing You by Harlan Coben. These are the ones that come to mind anyway. I liked them, I just never finished. 😦
5. Hyped/Popular books that you don’t like?
Not sure. Too be honest, I don’t really read popular books. I did read Harry Potter and while I liked it and thought they were really good, I did think they were overrated!
6. Is there a book you wouldn’t tell anyone you were reading?
7. How many books do you own?
Hmmm….maybe twenty to thirty? I know that number must seem really low to some people!
8. Are you a fast reader or a slow reader?
I’d say I’m in the middle. I think I was a lot faster when I was younger.
9. Do you like to buddy read?
I’m not quite sure what that means. If that means that I read some and someone else reads some, then no. If it means that I read the same thing as someone else and then we talk about it, then I guess. I hope that made sense!
10. Do you read better in your head or out loud?
In my head. I read pretty well out loud but if I get self-conscious then I start tripping over some of the words.
11. If you were only allowed to own one book, what would it be and why?
Wow, that’s tough! Maybe Dead Lines by Greg Bear or a book by John Saul? What a horrible question!
Everyone who wants to participate! Feel free to let me know if you do!
