This week is all about our bookish confessions. I can’t wait to see what kind of dirt everyone starts digging up with this one.
Top Ten Bookish Confessions
1. I am a bookaholic!
I know this one isn’t new since I have done a whole post on it, but it is true. I hoard books. I love them. Now I have read 167 books this year so it’s not like I don’t go through them, I just can’t help myself. I buy books.
2. Self-proclaimed book bender
I bend books as I read them. You know what I am talking about. I mark pages by folding the edge. I bend the left side back when I read the right side of the page.
My favorite ones have highlights of my favorite quotes in them.
Books should be read, shared, loved.
3. I perform the Drop off and Drive maneuver
I have been known to drop off books that I have bought and hated at the library in the outside drop off box and drive away. Lol.
Just because I don’t like it doesn’t mean others won’t. Plus I just don’t want to deal with it. They can sell it or re-shelve it.
4. Named by Nook after a Limp Bizkit song.
My Nook is named Nookie. It’s true.
5. I enjoy reading the author bios at the end of the book.
I actually did a blog post where I put the top ten bios I have run across.
Some of these authors are down right hilarious. Some are sweet and some are as quirky as they are.
6. I have a weakness for Eye Candy
I have a whole pinterest shelf devoted to hot men. However, it is under the name goodreads peeps. I must say that a decent amount of goodreads people who I know also have man candy.
Plus, I love to have a hot picture to go with my reviews or status updates.
7. Book I have been trying to find. Help!
My college writing class had a book of short stories or essays. I can’t remember which. I remember it had something to do with, if pigs fly. They were all hilarious and silly me, I sold it back after the class instead of keeping it.
Now I want another copy so if this sounds at all familiar please let me know. I know it’s not a lot to go off of, but I have hopes that someday I will find it.
8. I have been dubbed as delinquent for late charges at the library.
It is true. My library stops charging after it reaches $1.00 but you get a delinquent mark on your record. Thank goodness I actually know some people at my library and explained that with all the software changes made it wasn’t allowing me to renew. I am no longer a delinquent but I was for a few days.
9. Nothing is more dull than a college textbook
That statement could not be any more true. You think high school is bad, college is worse. I promise.
10. The motorcycle scene from Backstage Pass
If you have read Backstage Pass by Olivia Cunning you know what scene I am talking about. But really aren’t you curious. I surely am.
I want to know if it could really happen or if he would crash the motorcycle? Curious minds want to know. Anyone try that one?
Okay so do you have any bookish confessions? If you have a top ten pass on the link and I will visit. If not feel free to leave a confession. I won’t tell if you don’t.
