Ten facts about my love of books!


So I read an article a little while ago about book habits so I thought I would list my own! Sooooo here they are, 10 facts about my books and me!

1)       Firstly, I cannot start a book without finishing the first! Now I know that some people like to have two or more books on the go at one time however I am a one book at a time girl! I get so involved in the plot and the characters that I don’t  like to distract myself from each book and give it all my attention!

2)       I love to read in the bath! It is probably one of my favourite places to read other than snuggled up in a duvet in the evening. Additionally, yes I do sometimes drop the books in accidentally!

3)       I do not use bookmarks! I am such a forgetful person that I always lose them therefore have given up on using them! However I never turn over the corners of the books (promise!)

4)       I have NEVER EVER looked further into the book to find out the last twist or read the last page of the book! I did it once accidentally and was so annoyed at myself! For me that is a total no and no one will ever convince me that it is okay to do so!

5)       This may seem like a silly one but in the article I read the person said that they would only read one book by an author because there are too many books and too little time! I however would completely disagree; although I do not limit myself to one author I will almost always buy a second books from the author if I like their book to really get a feel of their writing style.

6)       I like to keep all my books and am not particularly fond of lending them or giving them away! One day I want to have a library so that’s the thought behind it!

7)        My favourite book quote is Louis de Bernières, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, it is beautiful

8)       I have more than once contemplated a book tattoo, (but have not been convinced to have one yet!)

9)       I love to re-read books! I know that some people read a book and then place it back on the shelf to never be picked up again however I am not like that! If I love a book I am guilty of reading it over and over, however, if I have a new book that almost ALWAYS takes precedence

10) My love of books has been with me almost all my life, as a child I used to hide in the library and moan and grumble if we had to leave! My mum still sends me books now whilst I’m at university!

    My goodness you’re like a goddess or something – always finish a book, never look ahead – :-O If your list were a test, I’d so fail. But it was fun to read your thoughts. You should compile a list from some of the fans who are doing their own. Be interesting to see some of theirs.

    What a fantastic idea! It’s fun to see how different readers are. I am definitely not a bath reader, I love having several books going, and I used pictures as bookmarks, and sometimes there’s like 50 pictures.

    Fun article! I love your blog.

      Haha thank you! I did pinch it off another blogger but for the life of me cannot remember where 😦 we are completely different readers! It’s brilliant to see how people are different! (: xx

    I would love to read in the bath, but golly would I be terrified that I’d ruin the book 😛 I love reading with a passion, but I am also particularly pedantic about what condition they are in so I am also someone who is very hesitant to led ANYONE my books, as they will be one bent corner away from a Gemma freak out 😛

    • littlebookblog says:

      I must admit a number of my books have been ruined in the bath :/ haha some of my books I keep in pristine condition but others I own are extremely dog-eared through so much use! 🙂 Thanks for commenting! 🙂

      • Gemma says:

        /gasps RIP Books 😛 Haha yeah sometimes the dog-eared books just can’t be helped! I wasn’t so strict on how I looked after my books when I was younger, so my Harry Potter books are yellowed and crumbling and looking at them today kills me inside 😛 No worries lovely, thankyou for stopping by my blog too! ^_^

    You had me nodding away at almost all the points:) Most of them are true for me too. I love re-reading too, but as you say, if there is a new book, I have to read it first:)

    Finally, someone else who loved Captain Corelli’s Mandolin! I thought it was an incredibly beautiful book. I like your top 10 list, although I tend to be the opposite on most. I’m definitely guilty of reading two books at a time and skipping to the end.

    Thank you for not turning over the corners of the book! 🙂
    I too like to read only one at a time. And if I find an author I like, I love to read more by them. But I’ll never live long enough to read all the books I want to read. So, I’m trying to make myself slow down and just enjoy each one, instead of hurrying through because I have another book to read.
