Hello, people of the internet!
Today, I would like to write a creative and witty (hopefully) post where you could learn more about my reading habits, particularly if I have ever done anything book-related.
So, let’s begin!
Have you ever lost a book?
Despite my organisational skills, yes, I have lost a book. It is 1984 by George Orwell. My room is being decorated, so I moved all my stuff, including my precious books, into another room. That was months ago (things keep getting in the way, so my room is still a work in progress) and I haven’t seen 1984 since!
Have you ever read a book that you did not finish?
There is one. It happened years and years ago. It was a book I chose at school to read. I can’t remember for the life of me what it was called, who wrote it or what it even looked like – it was purple, I think, and there was a dinosaur on the front, again I think – but it was so boring, I actually asked my teacher if I swap books – a first for me!
To this day, I can’t even handle the fact that a book about a dinosaur was boring (and they are awesome!)
Have you ever destroyed a book?
What do you think I am? A monster?
You’re the one asking the questions.
No, I haven’t. Whenever I see people destroy books, I honestly feel a bit down. Then again, I’ve yet to read a book I wanted to destroy, so maybe once that happens, I’ll change my mind?
Have you ever written/drawn in a book?
The only books I’ve ever written and drawn in are textbooks I bought for school. True story: once we finished our last exams, my best friend and I spent our free period at school writing and drawing in our science textbooks. Looking back, it would have been more beneficial if I gave it away, but it’s still a very precious, funny memory my best friend and I share. I still remember the characters we created: Gangster Chicken (all we did was draw stereotypical gangster clothes and bling on a chicken and, to us, he become a three-dimensional character) and Ernie the Enzyme (we just drew a face on an enzyme – it was hilarious).
Have you ever thrown a book in anger because of what was happening in it?
But I have gotten close. That book was Daughter by Jane Shemilt. The ending really annoyed me. You can read why in my review.
Have you ever dropped a book in the bath?
No because I don’t trust myself to even bring my books anywhere near the bath. I know I’ll drop it!
Have you ever used a book as a stool?
Before I bought my own stool, I used all my large books to get to hard-to-reach places like shelves and cupboards.
Just in case anyone is wondering, I am 5 foot 2 inches tall.
Have you ever used a book as a doorstop?
Stephen King’s IT is a very good doorstop. I would recommend it as both a doorstop and something to read.
Have you ever dropped a book on your face?
When I read in bed, yes. Surely I can’t be the only one who has had this happen to before!
Have you ever fallen asleep while reading a book?
Yeah, I have. When I was rereading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in Austria, I was so tired after the day long journey there, I fell asleep while reading it. Face down in the pages and everything.
Have you ever balanced a book on your head while walking?
Not since last week.
And those were my ‘have you ever…’ book-related questions! I might do another one of these as it was a lot of fun to write!
Have you ever done any of these?
Thank you for reading!
