Stefani @ Caught Read Handed tagged me with the Book Blogger’s Test. Fun!
What are your top three book pet hates?
1. Poor editing.
2. Condensed books for children. I have no problem with re-tellings that make great literature more accessible for children (Tales from Shakespeare, for example), but just condensing a book? No thanks!
3. Sex scenes.
Describe your perfect reading spot.
My library. 😀
Tell us three book confessions.
1. I have no problem DNF-ing books. There are too many great books out there, I’m not going to waste my time on a bad one.
2. I usually read 4-5 books at a time. Something long / heavy, something short / light, plus various books with my children.
3. It drives me crazy when people say classics are boring or difficult! Some classic books ARE, for sure, but most of them are wonderful! That’s why they’re classic!
When was the last time you cried during a book?
I tear up easily, but true crying? The Hunger Games.
How many books are on your bedside table?
None at the moment. I carry whatever I’m reading around the house with me, so Midnight in Austenland will be there tonight. 😉
What is your favorite snack to eat while you’re reading?
I read during meals. That’s probably why I’m such a careful, non-messy eater.
Name three books you would recommend to everyone.
What is your biggest reading secret?
I do not espouse the “all reading is good” idea. See my confessions above.
