Ten Facts About My Love Of Books
Lizzy Baldwin from mylittlebookblog posted the original Ten Facts About My Love of Books– on Friday. I told her she should collect the different ideas from people who follow her and did their own list. She thought it was a good idea, but then said I should do it to since it was my idea. Yeah, me and my great ideas.
But I did say I’d do it, so here goes.
Ever since I read the Lord Of The Rings it has been my first choice.
2. Before I found fantasy books I used to read history books.
My favorites were ancient history and those that covered the various wars.
3. I never read Playboy for the articles.
Does this really need an explanation?
4. I often read the end when I’m somewhere in the middle of the book.
What can I say? I’m impatient.
5. I hate sports biographies.
Fiction with athletes as main characters, yes. Biographies about athletes, no.
This might be the M/M book most people of my generation read first. For those who never read, think about it. It’s a classic.
7. I don’t enjoy sex scenes in books.
Most of the time it I find it silly and idealized, other times it seems gratuitous, and rarely do I think it advance the plot.
8. Sometime I’ll buy a book based on the cover.
Usually I regret it, but I’ve done it before and will probably do it again.
9.I do most of my reading on the Metro
My free time at home I try to write, so while riding on the Metro is the best time for me to read.
10. I chose the wrong eReader.
I own a Nook. I thought having stores and sales staff that people could talk to gave Barnes & Noble a selling point that would help it compete against Amazon. Kinda sucks I won’t be able to read those books once Nooks disappears.
