Ever since I shared my bad reading habits eons ago, I’ve wanted the opportunity to clear my name and explain I do have some good habits too… mostly 😉 That’s why I was super excited when the marvellous Mim Inkling tagged me to do this one!
#1 Reading *anywhere*
This can also be sorta bad, cos I’ve been known to walk and read… even in the street (yeahhhh I read dangerously, don’t do that). But it also means I get a lot of reading done, especially on commutes and travelling. I’ll happily squeeze reading into any part of my day if I can!
#2 Finishing series… eventually
Obviously, being a series finisher has had it’s downsides- I’ve definitely stuck with some series longer than I should, YET I can say that, even if it takes me years, if I commit to a series I am going to finish it dammit! (or maybe just buy the whole thing on kindle and say I will eventually 😉 )
#3 I’ll read anything!
I’m pretty open-minded when it comes to genres/ideas/authors- so I’d gladly pick most books up. Doesn’t mean I’ll like them, but I’ll give them a go. That said, I’m getting better at…
#4 Picking books I know I’ll like
In part thanks to knowing my tastes better, however this is also largely thanks to all of *YOU*. Because of blogging, my average rating is going up and up. I find it so much easier to weed the duds out of my TBR and find some real gems I can genuinely get excited about.
#5 Using the library lots!
This is pretty self-explanatory: libraries are awesome + monkey likes to go to the library = good reading habit! And it also proves my point that you don’t have to break the bank to get reading!
#6 Contributing to the circle of book life
This is quite an involved one, so let me explain. Obviously, I love buying books, but I’ve also gotten to be something of an expert when it comes to unhauling (see exhibit A), and I’m also good at then purchasing other’s unhauled second hand books- thereby the Great Circle of Book Life continues!
#7 Being a book pusher
I freely admit to spreading book addiction! Sharing books and getting readers hooked on series is my jam- I cannot help myself your honour!
Okay I’m not sure I actually cleared my name there- some of these seem suspiciously like bad habits… I wonder if you guys can do any better- I tag:
And anyone else that wants to do it! Also what’s your best reading habit? Let me know in the comments!
