I learned about this tag from Rachel@paceamorelibri and couldn’t wait to do it. I really like the questions here. If you haven’t checked out Rachel’s blog yet, please do. She has many book reviews, awards, and wrap-ups to read.
1. Have You Ever Regifted A Book That You’ve Been Given?
I haven’t technically regifted a book, but one time I did secretly and carefully read a book that I bought for someone else before I gave it to them. Yikes! I couldn’t resist! It was a Nicholas Spark’s book.
2. Have you ever said you’ve read a book when you haven’t?
No. If I haven’t read a book, I’ll say I haven’t. When I DNF a book (rare), I normally tell people that I tried it but didn’t finish it.
3. Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it?
I sort of have to admit to doing this. In elementary school, I had a teacher that brought in her copy of Bittersweet, a book of stories and poems. She thought that it was wonderful that I had an interest in writing poetry and she asked me to check out the book. I never gave it back and I still have it to this day. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to give it back, but mainly that she ended up leaving that year for some unexpected reason and I just never had the chance to give it back to her. I never saw her again. I still think about her sometimes.
Here it is:
4. Have you ever read a series out of order?
Not that I can remember. I’ve come real close though! Although I did read LOTR before The Hobbit which is backward I suppose since The Hobbit is the prequel. I’m reading The Hobbit with my youngest son now.
5. Have you ever spoiled a book for someone?
I think it’s possible. My mom reads and she often hears me talking about books and reads them after I do. Sometimes I get emotional and rant a little. I think for a few books, I may have mildly spoiled it for her.
6. Have you ever doggy eared a book?
No way. It’s a pet peeve! I would never do that. When I get books from the library and people have dog eared the pages, it drives me crazy. I’m weird about it.
7. Have you ever told someone you don’t own a book when you do?
I have to stick with Rachel’s answer on this! No? Why would I do that? Lol.
8. Have you ever told someone you haven’t read a book when you have?
Nope. I don’t know why someone would do that unless they’re really embarrassed to read something. I will say that when I read the Fifty Shades Trilogy, I wasn’t really comfortable telling people about it and didn’t shout it from the rooftops. It really isn’t my genre and I guess because I hadn’t read many books like it and it seemed weird explaining it to people due to the content, I just didn’t mention it.
9. Have you ever skipped a chapter or a section of a book?
Yeah, I have skimmed pages before, but never an entire chapter. This is something that I don’t like doing and I only do it if I’m super disgusted with a book.
10. Have you ever bad mouthed a book you actually liked?
No. I have no problem being honest about my opinions. Even with books I don’t like, I’m not much of a book basher.
