Hello friends! Today I am bringing a book tag that I found on Thrice Reads, and I thought I would give it a go too because I’m bored and watching Doctor Who and what’s more fun doing a tag when the world’s about to be destroyed again?
What is the longest amount of time you can comfortably go without picking up a book?
About two days in all honest, but if I’m in a reading slump it could be a week or so.
How many books do you carry on your person (or kindle) at any one time?
At least one… but quite often two.
Do you keep every book you buy/receive or are you happy to pass them on to make space for more?
Nope, I’m happy to pass them on! If I read it and it wasn’t my favourite, I’ll quite often pass it on to someone else, or if I just don’t think I’ll read it, I won’t keep it forever. There’s no point in that!
How long would you spend in a bookshop on a standard visit?
At least half an hour, but me and my friend Natalie spent about 3 hours in Waterstones the other day, so it honestly depends on what I’m there for.
How much time per day do you actually spend reading?
It can honestly depend. Today I spent a couple of hours, about an hour yesterday; and I’ll fairly frequently (lately, at least), pick up a book at 11, 12, 1am and read until like 3, but because that’s at a weird time in the day I hardly ever count it as proper reading!
Where does the task ‘picking up a book’ appear on your daily to-do list?
If I don’t have anything on, probably about 11am and then beyond; or sometime after dinner, if I don’t have any work.
How many books do you reckon you own in total (including e-books)?
A couple of…. hundred. Probably. At least. (*eek*)
Approximately how often do you bring up books in conversation?
At least once every…. ooh, ten minutes or so?
What is the biggest book (page count) you have finished reading?
Game of Thrones, or Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I’m not sure which is bigger and I can’t be bothered to look it up right now, to be quite honest.
Is there a book you had to get your hands on against all odds i.e searching bookshops, online digging etc?
I don’t think so, although I’m always looking for old editions of William Shakespeare and other books, because I find them fascinating.
A book you struggled to finish but refused to DNF?
Well, I’m still ploughing my way through Autumn by Ali Smith…
What are 3 of your main book goals for 2018?
- Hit my Goodreads challenge!
- Finally finish my Harry Potter reread… (I’m finally on book 5!)
- Really cut down on my unread books that I’m actually never going to get to… I simply have too many books!
Have you ever had the privilege of converting someone into a reader (maybe via inspiration or incessant nagging)?
Probably not, although I won’t stop trying.
Describe what books mean to you in five words.
Necessities in a paper format.
Until the next time,
