Top Ten Tuesday (8-28-12)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week, 
they post a different topic, and you get to create your own top ten list. So, this week's 
topic is:

Bookish Confessions

1) I check out an insane number of books from the library and only read about 1/3 of the one's that I check out. I don't know why, but I just have to check out a bunch, even thought I know I won't read them!

2) I judge people when I hear that they read certain books. Like, people who read and loved 50 Shades of Grey. I just can't help it!

3) I love to go into a bookstore and just wander around. There's something about just walking among the books that is so calming to me.

4) I try not to buy new books unless they are by an author that I absolutely love.

5) Since I don't buy new books, I love to get mine from a used book sale hosted by my local library. And, I go crazy. Like, I end up with stacks of books.

6) I sometimes dog-ear my pages. I know, that's a sin to some people, but there are times when there is nothing around for me to use!

7) I'm slowly coming around to e-books and readers (I feel so guilty admiting this!) They aren't totally bad, and super great whenever I travel.

8) If I'm not feeling a book within the first 5-10 pages, I stop reading it. I don't post anything about it on my blog, but I just let it go.

9) While I typically scorn the Twilight series, I devoured all 4 books in about a week. I loved it at the time.

10) I set reading goals for myself and then forget about them. I always want to do certain things in terms of my reading, but then just say, "Oh, screw it!"

So, what are your bookish confessions? Let me know!


  1. I always check out more library books than I can read. I can't help it! I always wind up feeling guilty for not reading all of them.

  2. I am with you 100% on number 3!! Its like a treasure trove, and there is new things on every shelf. I always find some and go "Why have I never heard of this, I should buy it."

  3. I completely agree with your Twilight assessment. I had to read them, but you'll never get me to say I liked them. There is something about 50 shades of grey that really just disgusts me...ok lots of things...

  4. I'm with you on the Twilight scorn. I bought and read all four books too. Eeek :)

  5. I love to go into bookstores too, it is the best place I can think to go! and I judge ppl who love twilight and 50 shades of grey... yeah I can't help it.

    Cool list though!!
