Siblinghood of the World Bloggers Award – Part 1

I have had this in my drafts for so long! 3 people have tagged me for the award. Thank you Evy, Amanda and  Christina (sorry it has taken this long)!

I’m the type of person who loves tabbing my books on parts I think are wonderfully written, funny or just memorable in some way. I love quotes! Thank you to Shushmita who nominated me. I could’ve sworn I hit the follow button on your site. I just thought you’ve been inactive lately but I can’t find you in the list of blogs I’m following or the comment that you nominated me in. I feel horrible. Please let me know where you are.

The Rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 per day)
3. Nominate three new bloggers each day.

 

And the Nominees are…

1. Fantasy Angel @ Avid Reader

2. Zin @Book’N’Feathers

3. Elly @ A Hufflepuff’s Thoughts

 

Wow! Just wow. These words did indeed create something magical. What do you think? Am I right to say you book lovers can relate?

Book Tag: Day and Night

booktag

D: Do you read more in the morning or at night?

I read whenever I can. It turns out that’s mostly in the afternoon.
A: Are there any books that changed the way you thought about things?

I believe that every book changes a little something of one’s mindset. Some examples: The Da Vinci Code, The Kite Runner
Y: YA or not?

I love YA! I’m all for it.
A: Are there any characters you honestly believe to be real?

That I honestly believe to be real??? Um, no. Some characters feel so real to me and I’ll think about them often but in the end I know they’re (unfortunately) fictional. (That is what the question meant, right?)
N: Nobody borrows my books or I don’t mind lending them out?

I have a selected few who I trust with my books.
D: Do you ever smell your books?

Hahaha! Yup! I’m a page sniffer.
N: Not everyone likes books, is this a positive or a negative?

Aw, dude that’s just sad. All the stories missed! I don’t think it’s positive but it’s not quite negative; some people aren’t readers, deal with it.
I: I keep my books in the best condition or maybe not? Which are you?

I’ve always kept them in the best condition I could. No creases and no stained pages kind of thing. (But I’m warming up to annotating books. I’m starting to see the charm in it. Maybe sometime in the near future?)
G: Gosh I have too many books! True or False?

False. I want more books! I used to barrow a lot from people so I don’t have that impressive of a collection. (Plus can there ever be “too many” books?)
H: Have you ever spilled or stained your books before with something, and if so how?

I once left a tall cup of water on my desk wear my books were, I reached to get something and the entire thing of water spilled on my books. I dried them quick so none of them were really damaged but it was probably one the most moritfing expiriences I’ve had.

 

T: Toned or untoned while reading? . . or in other words. . .Do you read and workout at the same time?

Um… Does holding the book up while you read on you back count?? Cuz that’s the only thing I got.

 

This was fun! I’m going to tag some people who I don’t believe have done this.

Joyce @thegirlwhosinlovewithapen

Joysofabookworm @Live. Laugh. Read.

Analee @Book Snack

Zin @Books’N’Feathers

Book Tag: Reading Habits

This is so exciting! My first tag! I was browsing through Erika the Bibliophile ‘s blog and found this tag. It was created by TheBookJazzIt . AND I was tagged by who seems to be my virtual doppelganger, Casey, at inspiredbythepage . It looked like fun so here it goes…

1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

Although I read in my room most of the time, I wouldn’t say I have a specific place to read. As long as it’s comfy and I can chill, I can read there.

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

Actually neither. I just remember the page number or know more or less where I’ve stopped and flip through that general section till I find the page.Read More »
