This is an original Dewey Weekly Geek idea! I remembered that I nabbed Dewey's list of ideas from her blog before it closed down, so since I've run out of my own ideas for the time being, I looked over that list and decided we should try this one.
The idea is simple. Tell us ten things about you with regard to books and reading. Let your imagination run wild!
For instance: New or old? Hard back or soft? One or lots at a time? Bookmarks or not? What genres? What authors? Favorites? Habits? Stuff you like. Stuff that bugs you.
I think you get the idea. You don't necessarily need to use my thoughts above of course. Those are just to get you started. And when you are done, we should be able to get a nice big picture of your reading/bookish personality.
Have fun with this! Be creative! Then be sure to visit around to other participants to see how you compare to everyone else's bookish personalities.
I have missed a few weeks of Weekly Geek – so I am just jumping in and doing a few over the coming weeks.
I love the idea of writing down 10 things about me and books. As I have been off my reading for the past two month or more and not really sure why..
Here are my 10 things
10 - I generally am reading at least three books on the go at any one time. They are normally different genre and in different places, it works for me and I get a bit more than the ordinary amount of reading done when I am on my game.
9 – I buy way more books that I actually read… That was actually a confession. They say it’s suppose to be good for the soul..
8 – I give up easily on series – and sometimes over some silly things. I recently read books 10 of a series I totally love and I couldn’t remember who one of the couple mentioned were, I knew it was time to move on. Fickle aren’t I.
7- I really do need to take a break from reading – but how? After being off the blog for about 2 months and looking around over this weekend – there are so many books to catch up on, so many new authors to try out.. but I needed a break.
6 – I read a Mills&Boon EVERYDAY – This line of book has been a constant in my life ever since I was a teenager and I practically know at least 50 percent of each story before I am even at page 10 – but I love them and they are my own little way to unwind in the evening with a cup of tea.
5 – I really HATE when people dog-ear pages – I REALLY HATE IT…
4 – I re-read ALOT.. Sometime I just even spin to the juicy bits and I am satisfied.
3 – I make alot of book list and have them all over the house, on the fridge, little bits of paper on the bookshelf, little notebooks in my handbag, I even use them as bookmark.
2 - I never watch films/movies that are book based without reading the book first. I have been known to even read a movie transcript or two just to see what was sexed up..
1 – I find that my Mum and I are now reading quite a lot of the same kind/genre of book - Sometimes when she says “I have read that” I really am freaked.. Have you seen the kind of books I read.. scary I tell you.
What are some of the things about you and book?
