The Guilty Reader Book Tag

An Open Letter to the Christian Book Industry | The follow-up post to my last blog post.

Have you ever re-gifted a book you’ve been given?

Not that I can think of. I am very possessive of my books. I have even held onto some that I knew I would never read.

Guilt Level: Zero

Have you ever said you read a book when you haven’t?

No, if I have not read it I have not read it. I want to be open and honest about what I do read so why lie about it.

Guilt Level: Zero

Have you ever borrowed a book and no returned it?

I have from a friend because in my school days. I had meant to return it and then that friend moved away. I think I still have it somewhere.

Guilt Level: Medium

Have you ever read a series out of order?

I have to say yes to this, but it was not on purpose. I was given a book and picked up to read it and found out since I loved the book to see what the other books the author had written I could the book I read was like book 5 or 6 in a series.

Guilt Level: Low

Have you ever spoiled a book for someone?

I have done this for when I get started talking about book I tend to tell my favorite parts. It is usually with other book lovers and we are often reading similar books at the same time. I forget sometimes that I read a lot faster than other people and to go the good parts and I want to talk about them.

Guilt Level: Medium

Have you ever dog-eared a book?

No, I have a nice collection of bookmarks that I pick up from all over the place. It bugs me for sometimes those dog ears come off and the page is just weird to me. Now I have put sticky notes in them or circled page numbers. My books look loved, but I like if I share the book with someone they are not influenced by my take on the book.

Guilt Level: Low

Have you ever told someone you don’t own a book when you do?

Yes! I did not want to share a copy of a book that I had just added to my collection. They knew that it was a book I had been waiting and they want to borrow it. I had not read it yet and wanted the chance to read it a couple of times before I would allow anyone to borrow it.

Guilt Level: Low

Have you ever told someone you haven’t read a book when you have?

I think I have been I can’t think if a certain book that I have done it with. I read a lot of books so I often for gotten what I have read and what I have not unless I have really loved the book.

Guilt Level: Medium

Have you ever skipped a chapter or a section of a book?

NO!!!! I have a feeling that I would have missed something that is essential to the plot and storyline. I would always wonder if I did. That is a big NOPE from me.

Guilt Level: Zero

Have you ever bad mouthed a book you actually liked?

I probably have for there are times when I read that I don’t like certain events that happen and I angry and throw the book. It does not mean I will not go pick it back up and continue to read the book.

Guilt Level: Low

I have to say I was not that guilty in doing this book tag. I tag anyone who reads this post. Link back back to me so I can see if you are guilty or not. Happy Reading.
