I am an unashamed book lover. I fell in love when I was very young, and I haven’t stopped since. To confirm just how much I love books, I’m taking a tag I spotted over on suckerforcoffee‘s blog.
Do you remember how you developed a love of reading?
When I was younger, maybe three or four, my Dad would read to me every night before I went to sleep. Soon, I started learning to read for myself. I’ve rarely put a book down since.
Where do you usually read?
Anywhere I can. A lot of my reading these days though is done on my commute to or from work, and I always try to catch a couple of pages before I go to sleep.
Do you prefer to read one book at a time or several at once?
I exclusively read one book at a time. If I were to read more, I’m pretty sure I would just confuse myself with the two stories.
What is your favourite genre?
Young Adult. It seems like those kids have their lives together more than I do.
What genre will you not read?
Horror. I’ve never liked any of the horror books I’ve read – I’m a huge wuss.
Do you have a favourite book?
I’ve got a few, like most bookworms. I really love The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, and Candy by Kevin Brooks.
What is the worst book you’ve ever read?
I wasn’t a fan at all of Virgin by Radhika Sanghani. It was labelled as Bridget Jones for younger readers, but I didn’t connect with this at all.
What is the biggest book you’ve ever read?
That would be Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling, which is 766 pages.
What was the last book you bought?
I recently bought not one, but five books.
Which do you prefer, library books or buying books?
I love supporting my local library, but there is something special about having your own copy of a book you’ve really loved.
What are you reading now?
Editing Emma by Chloe Seagar
What are the disadvantages of being a book lover?
There are very, very few. The only one I can think of is books taking up all your money, but there are so many ways of getting over that hurdle.
