Monday musings

Found this little meme via Should Be Reading.  It’s a book blogger quiz:

Top 3 bookish pet peeves?

  1. Spilling things on my books.
  2. Reading in the bath makes for crinkly pages.
  3. Nooks that need charging at the worst possible moment!

Perfect reading spot?

I don’t know that I have one, honestly. I read all over the place. The place I probably read most often is on our living room couch, on the left side. Next most used spot would be on my bed, propped up with a pillow and my cat stomping me into submission.

3 Bookish confessions?

  1. I buy way more books than I can read.
  2. If I order a book online, I obsessively check package tracking until it arrives.
  3. I’m only just now getting into audio books.

When was the last time you cried during a book?

Oh, let’s see… that would be back in April when I read an advance copy of Robin Hobb’s Fool’s Assassin.

How many books are on your bedside table?

At the moment? Eight, I think.

What is your favorite snack to eat while reading?

Get between me and my chocolate chip cookies and die a painful death.

Name 3 books you’d recommend to everyone.

  1. Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb
  2. A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
  3. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Write how much books mean to you in 3 words.

They’re my life!

What is your biggest reading secret?

I’m not as well versed in the classics as you’d think an English major would be. I missed out on a lot of them in high school and haven’t gotten around to reading them yet.
