15 Day Book Blogger Challenge | Day 1

Posted by HelloJennyReviews at 11:07 AM
I found this on The Happy Bookers blog and followed it back to the creator, GoodBooksAndGoodWine. It sounds like fun and I've been quite boring lately. Plus I need something to do before the Book-a-thon. So here goes.

Day 1
15 Book related confessions.

  1. I hate slow moving books.
  2. The covers are normally what attracts me first.
  3. I cannot, for the life of me, manage to finish any of the classic books I start. Except Wuthering Heights. That is the exception to everything.
  4. I started out reading "older" books when I was in middle school. I would read Stephen King, Anne Rice, etc. And it's like I have devolved because I read strictly YA now.
  5. I collect bookmarks. My favorite one at the moment is my "soft kitty" one.
  6. I own over 300 YA books.
  7. I have collected MANY things over my 24 years of living but books have always been a constant.
  8. My favorite places to buy books are Ollies, 2nd & Charles, Thrift Stores and Barnes and Noble. I have never bought a book offline. I need to feel the book in my hand before I buy it. I also love the joy of finding books as opposed to just looking them up on Amazon and clicking "add to cart."
  9. It bugs me when covers don't match in series(Across The Universe by Beth Revis is a good example. I also hate when I am forced to getting a paperback when my series so far is in hardback and vise versa.
  10. I have 2 Nooks and a smart phone with a Nook and Kindle app on it. I still prefer actual copies of books. But I use my nook to do ARC ebook reviews.
  11. I buy waaayy too many books. My TBR pile is going to crush me in my sleep one day. This past month(june-now) I have bought over 60 books. 
  12. I always carry a book or my Nook in my purse where ever I go. Never know if I'm going to get trapped or stuck somewhere.
  13. I never finished the Twilight series. I got 100 pages into Breaking Dawn and gave up. Best decision I've ever made, book-wise at least.
  14. I regret every book I've ever gotten rid of. I have slowly started to re-buy the ones I am missing.
  15. I would rather have a book buying spree than any jewelry, clothes, shoes, etc. Books are definitely my love, besides my hubby. ;)
These are my 15 confessions. What are some book confessions you have?
