ARE YOU A BOOKAHOLIC?
Presents: Michelle at Book Briefs
Are you a bookaholic (remember admitting it is the first step)?
Well, if I'm not then I don't know anyone who is. In the world. The whole wide world.
When did you notice you had a problem?
It was probably when I found out I could not walk into a bookstore or even log onto amazon without buying something. My roommate also may or may not have referred to me as a book hoarder.
THESE CAN BE STRICTLY YES OR NO OR YOU CAN GIVE A BRIEF ANSWER.
Do you lose time from work due to your reading?
Have you ever got into financial difficulties as a result of reading?
not seriously, but almost all of my extra money goes towards books.
Do you crave a book at a definite time?
Yes, specifically all the time.
Do you want to read the next morning?
You know it.
Does reading cause you difficulty in sleeping?
I've been known to stay up pretty late reading a book that I could not put down.
Do you read to escape from worries or trouble?
Do you read alone?
Only if you don't count the tons of awesome characters I meet.
TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR ADDICTION (You can answer as little or as many as you want for this part)
What type of reader are you?
a voracious one! I read everything I can get my hands on!
What type of books do you typically read?
I read a wide variety of books but my favorite are YA. Specifically, paranormal, Dystopian, Supernatural, UF, and contemporary.I also read some adult books in these genres.
Do you prefer print books or e-books?
I love my kindle so much and its so convenient, but I just love seeing all the pretty books on my book shelves so I could never give up my print books.
If you had to choose between really good characters and a bad plot or bad characters and a really good plot. Which would it be?
I need a good plot. I can get annoyed at characters and still enjoy the story, but if the story is bad I have a hard time enjoying the book overall.
We all have those characters we love. Are you more addicted to the tall-dark-handsome-mysterious type or the sensitive-laidback-bestfriend type?
I like both of those types as long as they are nice/good guys. I'm not really a fan of bad boys; in real life or in books.
I know we all want to read everything, but sometimes we can't. If you could only read 3 books for the rest of your life what would they be?
The hunger games trilogy
The Harry Potter series
The Mediator Series
How much does the book blogging community contribute to your book buying habit/addiction/pattern?
They are the biggest enablers on the planet! I think that is why my book buying habit has grown so much since I started blogging. Hearing people gush over how much they love a book makes me need to run out and get the book ASAP!
MY BLOG IS MY LIFELINE TO THIS CRAZY ADDICTION
What's your blog name?
In twitter detail (140 characters or less) describe your blog.
Book Briefs are so much more fun than law briefs, so stop by my blog for (mostly) YA book reviews, giveaways and bookish news.
How long have you had your blog?
Book Briefs is only 8 months old. It has almost started walking :)
For everyone who wants to start a book blog (or any blog) what's the best advice you can give them.
Don't get caught up in doing what you think you need to do. Do what you want- it is supposed to be fun! And don't feel bad about saying no to book review requests if you don't have time or think you won't enjoy the book. It is much harder to write a negative review after a sweet author has sent you their book, than just passing on the book in the first place.
WANNA STALK ME- (You can choose which you want share if any.) I love stalkers ;)
