In case your eyes are like mine and you can’t read that annoyingly tiny print, this is what the rules are:
1. Link to the person who tagged you, and post the rules on your blog
2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs
4. Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog!
This 7 random bookish things should be easier than the 7 random things, since the last time I did the List 7 Weird Things About You, someone said my weird things weren’t very weird. Well, pfft. 😛
Okay, here goes!
- I like to read everything in a book. The page with the copyright info? I read it. The history on the font used in the book? I read it. The author bio? I read it. Acknowledgements? I read ’em. Pretty much the only thing I won’t read is the testimonials on how good the book is.
- When I read a hardcover, I take off the dust jacket because those things start curling and ripping if you just look at them funny, so don’t even try to keep those in good condition if you leave it on the book while you’re reading.
- I like free bookmarks. I don’t like really nice bookmarks you have to buy. I think it’s because I’m afraid I’ll lose them.
- It’s hard for me to read and eat at the same time. I really don’t like to spill food on my books and I’m kind of a sloppy eater.
- I used to love Flowers in the Attic and all those books. In fact, it was from reading one of those books that my fear of heights was heightened. (HA!) Can anyone guess which scene freaked me out?
- I’ve been trying to stop myself from reading the endings first, but boy is that a hard habit to break!
- There’s been at least a few times in my working career that I’ve snuck some reading in when I should have been working. I blame the books! They made me do it!
So that’s it!
Let’s talk all things books right now. What are your quirks? If you’d like to participate in this, please jump in, the water’s warm! I shan’t be tagging anyone, so let’s just hang out in the comments, shall we?
