This week topic is
Top Ten Tuesday Freebie!
Our time to pick whatever topic we like! I missed out on the TTT Bookish Confessions a couple weeks ago, so this is my change to share them now!
I rarely DNF a book. If I don't like a book I skim. You could say this is a kind of DNF, but I always hope a book gets better eventually. And I'm just afraid of missing out on something. So I can't just put it away.
I don't own a library pass. I know I should, only to save money. But the library here mostly has Dutch books and their English YA section is pretty bad. So I don’t really see a reason why I should bother.
I'm horrible with remembering names. Sometimes I just forget the name while I'm reading the book. I think it's horrible and I really try, but I'm pretty good in remembering what happened in the story. So I guess that counts for something.
4. Reading and walking
When I'm on the train/bus/metro (any public transport), and I'm almost at the end of a book (or chapter or in the middle of a really exciting part) I keep reading. I stand up, get off the train/bus/metro and read while walking. So far I haven't caused any accidents with this behavior, so I guess I’ll just keep doing it!
5. Writing reviews
This one is bad: when I'm asked by an author to write a review I get this feeling it must be a good book and I'm just stupid for not liking it. So I give the book a slightly higher rating than I actually think it’s worth it. Like I said: really bad. I should stop this immediately!
6. Harry Potter and ereaders
When Harry Potter began it's hype I swore to never read it. I thought it was 'stupid'. My sister (who barely reads) loved them, so when she went to see the first film I had to come and I fell completely in love with the series. My sister never finished it, but I've reread it multiple times now! I did the same thing with ereaders. I didn't like them at first, but if anything would happen to my Kobo now I'll cry!
7. Book love
I get angry when people don't like the books I love. It's a bit stupid, because I also believe that not everyone can love a book (or anything else for that matter). But really not liking a book I love, that stings!
I don't understand non-readers. And I really mean: not for one bit. How can you not love reading?!
9. Books and movies
Readers always seem to have an answer to the question what books they want to see made in a movie. I never do. I see the story as a movie in my head, but I rarely envision the characters as people I 'know'.
When I'm new in someone's home the first thing I check out are the bookshelves. I don't really judge people by it, but I think it's just nice to know what kind of books they read (or think they should have on their shelves).
