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.

8386261. My favorite genre is fantasy. 

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.

6. The first M/M fiction book I read was The Front Runner by Patricia Nell Warren.2345678

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.
