Today’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week topic has to do with books. Books that you heard about on another blog, read and then loved! Well, way back in April, Raych over at Books I Done Read reviewed My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier and based on her review alone, I knew that I had to read the book.
She included a lot of CAPS in her review which told me that I must drop everything and read it now. She also stretched her words out reallyyyyy longgggg to get her point across. When Raych does that, my ears perk up. I can’t help it.
So I read it and I LOVED it and now I am using CAPS to describe my OVERALL EXCITEMENT OVER IT. It hasn’t stayed on my shelf since I’ve read it. I have been lending out to everyone I know!
What great books have you discovered?
As part of the celebration, book bloggers everywhere are being asked to participate in this reading meme. In an attempt to keep this short, I selected a few of the questions to answer.
Do you tend to mark your books while you read? Or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
I cannot deal with scribbles in a book. When I see it, I get a little bit weird.
Are you a person who tends to read to the end of a chapter or are you able to put the book down at any point?
I read until the end, unless the said book is Netherland where there are no chapters. Took me awhile to figure that out.
What are you currently reading?
I am reading The Last Dickens by Matthew Pearl for an upcoming TLC book tour. I am liking it a lot more than Drood. I am also reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
What is the last book you bought?
I just bought a copy of Northanger Abbey at the university’s used book sale.
Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time, or can you read more than one at a time?
I really strive to read one book at a time but it never works out for me. My moods change and when they do, I need to move on to another book so I often have 3-4 going at once.
Do you have a favorite time of the day and/or place to read?
My favorite time to read is during lunch at work. I camp-out in the corner of my private office and have a little carpet picnic. It feels totally wrong to have a carpet picnic at work, and that is probably why I love it so.
