Q&A: Reading Habits

Thanks Charles for nominating me. This is late, but I’ve been getting worse and worse at being early.

I’d like to give more credit except I have no idea who came up with these questions.

You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next?

I let fate decide for me. Most of the time, it’s quite random. Once I tossed some dice. Thanks Rachel for the suggestion.

You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it. Do you quit or commit?

Probably commit and hope that it gets better. Most books pick up afterwards anyway.

The end of the year is coming and you’re so close yet so far away on your GoodReads challenge. Do you quit or commit?

What’s the meaning of the word quit? I tend to have a winter break at the end of the year, which means more reading for me. Especially because it’s cold in December. The last thing I want to do is go outside and freeze to death before I read as much as Herminialy (humanly) possible.

The covers of a series you love DO. NOT. MATCH. How do you cope?

I just do. The content of the series matters more than how the covers look.

Everyone and their mother loves a book you really don’t like. Who do you bond with over shared feelings?

Bloggers. No surprise there.

You’re reading a book and you’re about to start crying in public. How do you deal?

I’d run to the washroom.

A sequel of a book you loved just came out, but you’ve forgotten a lot from the prior novel. Will you re-read the book? Skip the sequel? Try to find a summary on GoodReads? Cry in frustration?

I tend to remember the previous novel the more I continue reading the sequel. Or I’ll skim through the prior book if it’s on my shelf.

You don’t want ANYONE borrowing your books. How do you politely tell people “nope” when they ask?

One time, a friend asked to borrow my copy of The Maze Runner. I gave in. But I might try to lie and make up some excuse about not having the book they’re hoping to borrow. In the future, I’ll just buy them the book as a present because I’m nice like that.

You’ve picked up and put down five different books in the past month. How do you get over the reading slump?

Read something new by an author I like.

There are so many new books coming out that you are dying to read! How many do you actually buy?

As many as I can afford. Even though I accumulate more books over time.

After you’ve bought a new book you want to get to, how long do they sit on your shelf until you actually read them?

This depends. Sometimes I’ll start a book the day I purchased it. Other times I leave the book sitting there for several months. Neglecting novels is what I do best.

I nominate all of you because I want to know your reading habits. Air them like laundry on your blogs for the world to see.
