Booking Through Thursday {1}

Thursday, January 12, 2012

In general, I do not post this much in a day, and I have never ever done Booking Through Thursday before. But I like the questions, and I am waiting for my family to pick me up for a flight to LA, and I think it is how I am going to pass the next few minutes. So, hooray.

1. What’s your favorite time of day to read? 

Honest to goodness truth? Any time is good for me. I read when I can. I guess I probably read the most in the middle of the day, when I need a break. 

2. Do you read during breakfast? (Assuming you eat breakfast.)

Not usually... I usually check my email. I guess that involves reading. 

3. What’s your favorite breakfast food? (Noting that breakfast foods can be eaten any time of day.)

Hash browns, very crispy, with lots of ketchup. 

4. How many hours a day would you say you read?

It's hard to say, because I tend to read in small increments. If it is a day when I'm not riding the bus, 1-2 hours. If it is a bus day, 3-4 hours (unless I fall asleep). 

5. Do you read more or less now than you did, say, 10 years ago?

I think I read about the same amount. 

6. Do you consider yourself a speed reader?

I'm not a skimmer, but I do read really fast. 

7. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

I would like to be able to read minds. Even if I learned negative things that other people thought about me. 

8. Do you carry a book with you everywhere you go?

Yes, ma'am. Every single time I have forgotten to bring a book with me, I have been left waiting, totally bored somewhere. So now it is just a matter of course that I have one. Or two. Or five. 

9. What KIND of book?

My Kindle is almost always with me, whether or not I have a hard copy book that I am reading as well. The Kindle has unlimited book possibilities in case I was trapped in a cave or kidnapped or something. 

10. How old were you when you got your first library card?


11. What’s the oldest book you have in your collection? (Oldest physical copy? Longest in the collection? Oldest copyright?)

Hard to know, as I'm at school right now and won't be home for a few days. I am not positive but i think my oldest physical copy is Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott. It is an edition from 1908. 

12. Do you read in bed?

Yes, but mostly just as I wait for my husband to finish getting ready for bed. 

13. Do you write in your books?


14. If you had one piece of advice to a new reader, what would it be?

Start and never stop. 


  1. Bwhahaha I love your "in case I'm trapped in a cave" argument. Makes TOTAL sense to me. ;-)

    And also, I am with you on having a book with you always. I once got myself locked in the garage without a book and it was the longest hour of my life.

    (Locked in the garage story in a nutshell....I ran into the garage to grab something but I was only in my tank and underroos. When the door to the house shut, it locked. And I didn't have a key! And it's not like I could have left the garage DRESSED LIKE THAT to a neighbor to get the spare. It wss hellatious.

    1. See, you did get caught in a cave! Of sorts. And thank you so much for explaining to me how that happened, because I was going to ask, and people don't always check back to the comments. Hellatious indeed. Especially without a book.

  2. LOL, great advice in #14! :) I'm not sure I'd want to read minds, I rather see people tell me what they think directly or keep it for themselves if it sin't for me to know.

    1. Why thank you! Most people say the same thing about reading minds when I mention that is the answer to that question (it seems every little survey or group gathering has some question like it) but I am just so curious I wouldn't be able to resist.
