Day 1: Make 15-book related confessions1. Books are sacred!
Thou shall not crease thy spine. Thou shall not dog-ear thy pages. Thou shall not buy any book that is not in pristine condition.
2. I don't like audio books.
I think audio books are great for some people- but me, I like the actual act of reading.
3. Authors are my celebrities.
Seriously. I would much rather meet Veronica Roth over Justin Bieber any day.
4. Sometimes I just sit and admire my bookshelf.
Yeah, this might be slightly weird but books are just so pretty when they're sitting side-by-side on a shelf.
5. I don't own an e-reader.
No, this isn't some protest against ebooks, because I love 'em! Trust me, I am absolutely dying to get my hands on a Kindle Fire! In the mean time, I have a Kindle app downloaded on my iPod Touch that I use.
6. Twilight is what rekindled my love for reading.
I've loved to read ever since I was a little girl. But for some reason around Middle School, I had tapered off on my reading. Then a friend let me borrow Twilight and I was once again reminded of everything I love about books!
7. I've only read the first Harry Potter book.
I know this is like a book sin! But when the first movie came out I was only 6 years old and hadn't even heard about the books yet. I've seen every single movie and consider myself a HUGE Potter nerd and promise that I will one day read the whole series.
8. I love Adult books.
This is a YA/NA book review blog, but I frequently read Adult books and will also occasionally review them on Goodreads.
9. I prefer Books-a-Million over Barnes & Noble.
Books-a-Million was the first actual all-book store I ever went to (and it was ahhh-mazing), so it holds a special place in my heart. Even if most people look at me like I'm crazy for not choosing the esteemed Barnes & Noble.
10. My love of books has influenced what job I'm going to pursue.
I love books and reading so flippin' much that I'm majoring in English with the hopes of one day working at a book publishing company.
11. If the book is free, I'll buy it.
There are tons of books on my Kindle app that I never would have otherwise bought if it hadn't been for the fact that it was free on Amazon.
12. I have A LOT of book boyfriends.
I wonder if this makes me some kind of book slut? ;P
13. I don't always like the idea of a book I love getting turned into a movie.
When I love a book and have already got these great characters in my head, I get really apprehensive that the movie industry will just go and ruin it all! *cough* Twilight *cough*
14. I don't allow people to borrow my books.
I know book lovers are supposed to share the book-love by letting others borrow their books (I tell them to go to the library). But I am SUPER picky about how my books are treated and after having two really bad book-borrowing experiences, I quit.
15. I totally judge people who say that dislike reading.
I mean, have they even tried it? How do you dislike reading? It's a major part of everyday life! I usually just tell people that they haven't found the right genre that suits them yet.
