What is a book tag, you ask? Well, it’s a lovely set of bookish questions re-posted from another person or blog with your own answers. It’s like a get-to-know me (and my bookish habits) post!
I first saw this book tag over at Melanie’s blog, Christian Bookshelf Reviews. It was created by MathomBooks on YouTube. I thought this would be a fun post to share because I enjoy seeing other readers’ habits. Here are some of mine:
I ~ Inside flap/Back of the book summaries: Too much info? Or not enough (Discuss)
N ~ New book: What form do you want it in? Be honest: Audiobook, E-Book, Paperback, or Hardcover?
S ~ Scribble while you read? Do you like to write in your books, taking notes, making comments, or do you keep your books clean clean clean? (Tell us why)
I ~ In your best voice, read for us your favorite 1st sentence from a book.
D ~ Does it matter to you whether the author is male or female when you’re deciding on a book? What if you’re unsure of the author’s gender?
E ~ Ever read ahead? or have you ever read the last page way before you got there?
O ~ Organized bookshelves, or Outrageous bookshelves?
A little of both. Some shelves are grouped by author and/or genre, other shelves are packed tight with a variety of books. Except for my Empty Shelf Challenge shelf – that one’s slowly accumulating books.
U ~ Under oath: have you ever bought a book based on the cover (alone)?
Probably yes, though I don’t remember a specific one. Book covers play a large role in the way books appeal to me. I love antique copies of books, and I recently bought a copy of “Last of the Mohicans” because it had a beautiful green cover with gold scrollwork.
T~ Take it outside to read, or stay in?
When the weather is warm enough, definitely outside! My favorite spot is my porch swing, even on rainy days.
Tag, you’re it now!
