Top Ten Tuesday (20)

 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and The Bookish.  Each week a new top ten list is posted, and to participate all you have to do is fill in YOUR top ten for the list.

This week the topic is:

Top Ten Bookish Confessions 

1.  I keep every book I have ever owned, even books I don’t like.  I just don’t have the ability to get rid of them, lol.  I also have all my goosebump books from when I was younger.

2. I HATE when stores put stickers on book covers.  Really, it drives me bonkers, and I will work for a long, long time to get the sticky off.

3. When I buy hardcover books, I look under the jacket to see what the cover looks like underneath.  If I don’t like that cover, it is irrelevant, I just do that to check it out.  Every time.

4.  I refuse to buy any e-books, unless it is to support self-publishing authors or they are free ones.  I own two Nooks, classic and color, and I didn’t buy either of those, they were both gifted.  I am not a supported of electronic books stuff.  Can’t help it, I just can’t handle not having the actual book!

5. There are a bunch of classics I haven’t read yet, like To Kill a Mockingbird, Catcher in the Rye, The Scarlet Letter, etc.  Someday I will eventually read them, but there are too many books I want to read right now.

6. I would love to have a part time job at B&N, even if it is only 1 day a week, so that I have a job and paycheck specifically for book discounts and book buying money!

7. I love and live at my B&N store so much, the staff have become good friends, expect to see me at least a few tmies a week and know my regular drink order.

8. I order so many books online, the lady at the post office has my 6 digit p.o. box number memorized.

9. Most people will read a book, then see the movie.  I can’t do this.  As much as I can help it, I will watch the movie then read the book.  It just sets me up for disappointment if I read the book first and it makes me mad when I see some of the changes that are made.  But as long as I get the very first movie & book out of the way, it doesn’t matter what order I read/watch the sequels in.

10. I am incredibly stingy with my books.  I don’t like for people to borrow them because I am afraid that I will get them back with broken or creased spines, dog eared pages, dirty or messed up covers, etc.  I am very OCD when it comes to the condition I keep my books in.

Those are my confessions!  So what kind of things do you have to tell on yourself when it comes to books?

Teaser Tuesday (24)

 Tuesday is a weekly meme anyone can take part in, hosted my MizB at Should Be Reading.  To participate all you have to do is get the book you are currently reading, open to a random page, and post a two sentence teaser that doesn’t contain spoilers.  Make sure you don’t forget to let us know the title and author of the book so people can add it to their To Be Read list if they liked the teasing!

Here’s my teaser:

 I realized the light was from the Milky Way, spilled out before me like fairy dust, and it was dazzling.  I started to laugh, and then I felt myself slip into oblivion.
