Top Ten Tuesday #4

Hey there! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and Bookish

This week's topic is:

Top Ten Bookish Secrets

1. Sometimes, I have so many books going, I forget which characters are in which story. It's like everything gets mixed up into one huge bowl and I can't make the pieces separate into a coherent thought. I'll be reading a story and be all WTF, and then I'll have the "Aha!" moment where I realize I picked up the wrong book.

2. I have never read the Twilight series. Even with the big hype surrounding it, I just haven't found the desire to actually read them. I'm sure the books are better than the movies, but I just haven't gotten to it yet.

3. I can put a book down, go back to it in a month, and still know whats going on. I'm pretty awesome at remembering what a book is about and it's main story line, even after a long period of downtime.

4. I read the same book twice and didn't even know it. Sometimes you choose to re-read a book because it's just so amazing. Well, once I read a book and then a few years later, read it again. The whole time I was thinking it sounded familiar...it's because it was. I felt so lame.

5. My mom thinks I read too much. I spend all of my free time reading. My mother thinks it will rot my brain or something. Personally, I just think she's upset because she doesn't make time to read herself. She enjoys it as much as I do.

6. Saving money on books is AMAZING. It's not a secret, but I still think it's awesome. I swap books on swap.com, get books from the library, using Kindle Lending and buy books on the cheap for my kindle. It's so much fun hunting for bargains.

7. I am not a fan of Historical Fiction. Sometimes I can find a good one, but for the most part, I stick to contemporary. I just get bored and/or confused.

8. All through College, the only books I read were textbooks. I missed out on a lot of good books because I was too busy. I'm more than making up for it now.

9. I didn't think 50 Shades of Grey was too intense. All the controversy was over nothing if you asked me. I have read books with much more hardcore BDSM, and it didn't bother me. What does annoy me is people being judgmental when all they had to do was read the summary and be like "Nope that's not for me." and move on.

10. Finding bookmarks is fun. I like taking a book out from the library and finding a cool bookmark. It's like a treasure hunt or something. I've gotten all kinds of them over the years, the most interesting was a $5 bill.

  1. I love the bookmark thing! I love gathering them though I seldom use them. I am trying to change that but I can tell you it probably won't happen. :)
