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.
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.
