A Lazy Blogger Book Meme

Pin It


I'm feeling like a lazy blogger today. I have things I can blog about but can't get into it. So, I'll use this meme from Dewey to inspire me (hopefully).


1. Do you remember learning to read? How old were you?
I can't remember the exact moment, but I seem to remember those "See Jane run" books in Kindergarten. I guess I was about 5 or 6.

2. What do you find most challenging to read? Biographies. I hate dry writing.

3. What are your library habits? I usually request books online and pick them up at the local library. I love the internet!

4. Have your library habits changed since you were younger? Yes. When I was a kid, I would go to the library, once every 2 weeks, with my parents and take out as many as they'd let me. My library wasn't big and I outgrew it fast.

5. How has blogging changed your reading life? To some degree. I've been lucky enough to receive a few books for free, so that's a bonus! I also feel obligated to read them and then blog about them. Lately, I think I've taken on a bit more than I can handle. Something's got to give.

6. What percentage of your books do you get from: New book stores, second hand book stores, the library, online exchange sites, online retailers, other? Interesting question! I haven't really broke it down but I guess 25% library, 25% local book stores, 25% used and 25% online (including a discounted online shop). It's spread out evenly.

7. How often do you read a book and NOT review it in your blog? What are your reasons for not blogging about books? I've only missed reviewing "A Passage to India," mostly because I forgot about it. I didn't have much to say about it actually.

8. What are your pet peeves about ways people abuse books? Dogearing pages? Reading in the bath? All of the above!

9. Do you ever read for pleasure at work? I'm a stay-at-home-Mom so I guess I do!

10. When you give people books as gifts, how do you decide what to give them? It really depends on the person and their tastes.

  1. I loved all of Forster's works, except the one that was just published recently that I can't seem to remember the title for.
