15 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 1

Day 1:  Make 15 Book Related Confessions

1.  I have never finished reading Pride and Prejudice. 
  Much like Tom Hanks, I've tried and quit a bunch of times.  I also get lost in the words, but not in the good way like Meg Ryan.  They overwhelm me.

2.  I feel like I'm cheating when I don't finish a book.

3.  I don't know how to delete DNF books off Goodreads so I just leave them on my "currently reading shelf", realizing it makes me look like I'm reading like 5 books at a time.  I don't want to click "done" because I'm not "done", I just don't want to finish it!  I just want it to go away... 

4.  On Pottermore, I was originally sorted into Slytherin House.  I didn't agree with those results (as I had a bad day that day and was in a pretty bad mood), so I later created another account and was sorted into Hufflepuff.  Twice (ok, I created ANOTHER account to verify).  And I can totally see that.

5.  I'd rather give books (or bookish things) as gifts rather than anything else.

6.  I don't think I've ever read the entire assigned text for a class.  Masters level included.  

7.  I'm a skimmer.  Which is why I often read things more than once.

8.  Please don't hate for this one:  While I enjoy John Green's humor (especially on his youtube videos), I'm not a fan of his books.  

9.  I hate realistic fiction in which the characters don't act or talk like normal teenagers.

10.  I always try to read the book before I see the movie.  Except in the case of World War Z (I tried, but see #3).  But then, I haven't actually SEEN World War Z yet, so this point may in fact be moot (or moo...

11.  Because I'm a skimmer (#7), I often only see the superficial.  I don't see the "hidden meaning" behind things.   I also don't remember quotes.

12.  Besides "teacher books", I've read less than 10 adult books in the past year.  

13.  Growing up, I used to have an "upstairs book" and a "downstairs book".  And sometimes a "bathroom book".  I'd take books to restaurants.  I'd have a book in the car.  Just so I'd always have a book.

14.  I'm slightly upset over the fact that my husband doesn't take my book recommendations.  I was right about Harry Potter and Hunger Games!  I can be right about Game of Thrones and the Chaos Walking series, too!  (Actually, those are the only 4 series I've ever recommended to him.)

15.  If we have a girl, we plan on naming her "Molly" after Molly Weasley.  If we have twin boys, Fred and George.  Our next dog shall be named "Tonks" if it's a girl, or "Muggle" if I can convince Aaron into letting me get a puggle.

  1. LOVE!

    I can totally help with the Goodreads DNF business. I created a DNF shelf for this exact reason. :-)

    1. OOOOH Good thinking! Cause I don't want it to go into my "read" total.

  2. I'm a skimmer too! I can read like 500 words in a minute and that somewhat bothers my lit teachers. You say you like giving people books... I'll send you my mailing addy. ;)

    Followed! (I’d also really appreciate a bloglovin’ follow and a comment on my post in return!)
