Hey guys!! I saw this post over on Linda’s Little Library and decided to do it!!
I normally don’t associate the words guilty and reader, so I think this is a fun little tag to do… and it will be fun to see how much guilt I actually get from reading!!
1. Have you ever re-gifted a book that you’ve been gifted?
No… I tend to hoard my books like the crazy dragon I am
2. Have you ever said you’ve read a book when you haven’t?
Yes… all the time in English class (shh don’t tell my teacher…)
3. Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it?
Not that I can remember… but I probably have at some point or another.
4. Have you ever read a series out of order?
IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, OKAY?
Okay, so I’ve read a few books from series out of order when they are more of “companion novels.” Also I didn’t even realize that I wasn’t reading the first book sometimes.
It just happens, okay?
5. Have you ever spoiled a book for someone?
YES. AND I FELT SO BAD. INSTANT GUT-SINKING-INTO-THE-ABYSS BAD.
I accidentally told my friend about the big reveal at the end of Crown of Midnight (not gonna spoil it on here though!!) cause I forgot that he had just finished Throne of Glass (which I forced on him and then he loved).
Also I spoiled the end of Rouge One (the Star Wars movie) once. It just slipped out and it was a total mistake and then I died a little on the inside. I know that’s not a book… but still.
6. Have you ever doggy eared a book?
Yeah. I used to do it all the time (those poor Warrior books), but now I can’t do it anymore. I’ll literally use anything as a bookmark instead of doing that.
7. Have you ever told someone you don’t own a book when you do?
Yup. Sometimes I’ll be talking about a book I read and someone will go “hey, I really want to read that, can I borrow it?” and they are someone I don’t trust with my precious book babies (I’ll refer you to question 1 when I told you about my dragon-hoarding ways) so I just say “oh I don’t have the physical book” or “I actually borrowed it from someone else! Sorry.”
8. Have you ever skipped a chapter or a section of a book?
Nope. Sometimes I’ll skim ahead or flip to the end of the chapter to see how much further I have to go if the part I’m on is really boring (or if the book has multiple points of view and I want to get back to a different one), but I’ve never been able to just skip parts of books.
9. Have you ever bad mouthed a book you actually liked?
I don’t think so? I don’t know why I ever would.
Talk to me!
What are your answers to the questions? Do you ever have book related guilt?
