Reader Confession Tag
Posted by BrittneyRz
I saw this tag on Interrobang and thought it would be fun to do. I am working on a number of reviews but not sure if I will have time to complete them before the New Year. I know its been a minute since I posted anything so I thought this would be a good one to post for the moment.
Have you ever damaged a book?
Unfortunately the answer to that is yes. There was one incident that I won’t talk about because it is definitely something I am ashamed of now. Though I know as a child I am sure that I accidentally hurt a book. Though I can say now, I treat book with the greatest amount of respect.
Have you ever damaged a borrowed book?
Not that I can remember. To be honest it is rare that I borrow books, I usually buy my own so that I can not worry about anything happening to them.
How long does it take you to read a book?
It all depends on the book and what is going on in my life. If I get wrapped up in it, I can finish it in a day or so. If it is good but doesn’t keep me wondering about it, it will take a few days. If it is slow and I am busy then it make take a few weeks. I almost always read before bed so that sometimes can dictate how long a book takes me to read. I wish I could read faster but I always make sure that I am able to appreciate what I am reading.
What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading The Ghosts of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick. It is four separate stories that are related. So far it is an interesting look at the process of life and death and I am interested to see how all these stories come together.
What book haven’t you finished?
I rarely leave a book unfinished but it has happened. I have tried to read Little Women about four times and can never get past the first four chapters. I also couldn’t finish Winter’s Tale either, I read about 200 pages and it just did not make any sense to me. I will try, sometimes too hard, to finish a book but sometimes that is just not possible.
Hyped/Popular books that you just did not like?
The book that comes to mind is The Fault in Our Stars. I read it because of how much everyone was talking about it but I just did not feel the depth of emotion attached to it that I was expecting. I wanted to cry and feel the pain of the book but I felt like the true emotions weren’t explored as much as they could have been.
Is there a book you wouldn’t tell anyone you were reading?
I can’t think of a book that I would be ashamed of telling people about. I think any and all books are worth reading. No one should be ashamed of what they are reading, as long as you are reading. I have read everything from nonfiction to paranormal romances and I wouldn’t be ashamed of telling anyone about any of them.
How many books do you own?
That would take a while to count. I have four full bookshelves and need another one because I am out of room. I love being surrounded by books and I do not plan on downsizing my collection anytime soon.
Are you a fast or slow reader?
Again this depends on the book. If I am hooked and enraptured by the book then I will soar through it. If it is only alright then I am slower. It also depends on what is going on in my life. Lately because of the holiday and personal things on top of getting a new job my reading time has been very limited.
Do you like to buddy read?
I can honestly say I have never done it.
Do you read better in your head or out loud?
I definitely read better in my head. I tend to stumble over my words when I read outloud. I can read faster in my head which is how I like to read.
If you were only allowed to own one book, what would it be?
This is a tough question because I think that if I had only one book sooner or later that book would get old and tiring to read. But I HAD to chose I would definitely chose Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I adore that book and I think though I might tire of it eventually it would take quite awhile before I got to that point.
This was a fun tag to do, so if you are looking for a tag consider yourself tagged!
