Book Tag Thursday


I found this cute little game on Life of a Female Bibliophile and decided to participate in a book tag.  If you want to play along, just answer the questions in the comments below or post them on your blog. Don’t forget to link back to me!

 Inside & Out

I – Inside flap/Back of the book summaries: Too much info? Or not enough? (Discuss)

Most of the time, it’s just enough. I’m going to read the first few pages anyway before I decide whether I’m going to read the whole book.

N – New book: What form do you want it in? Be honest: Audiobook, eBook, Paperback, or Hardcover?

I love the feel and smell of hardcover books.

S – Scribble while you read? Do you like to write in your books, taking notes, making comments, or do you keep your books clean clean clean? (Tell us why.)

Where do they do that at? Uh, no I do not write in my books. Unless you count putting my name on the inside flap. I come from a family of book lovers and you’d be surprised how many arguments I’ve had with them about who a book belongs to.

I – In your best voice, read for us your favorite 1st sentence from a book.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…Sike. I haven’t read  A Tale of Two Cities but I’ve always liked that opening. Don’t judge me, it’s on my to be read list.

D – Does it matter to you whether the author is male or female when you’re deciding on a book? What if you’re unsure of the author’s gender?

I’m not particular. There are times when I specifically seek out books written by male authors. I typically read a lot of chick lit and women’s fiction, so sometimes I just want to add some testosterone to my reading list.

E – Ever read ahead? Or have you ever read the last page way before you got there? (Do confess thy sins, foul demon!)

I used to do that all the time as a kid, but now I don’t. I’ve learned patience, and appreciate the journey the writer wants to take the reader on. So I’m content to let them drive!


O – Organized bookshelves or Outrageous bookshelves?

Are all the books on the shelf? Then, hey, I call it organized!

U – Under oath: have you ever bought a book based on the cover alone?

All the frickin’ time!

T – Take it outside to read, or stay in?

I read any and everywhere. If there’s enough light to see by, I’m good.
