Day and Night Book Tag

I know, I know. It has been an unacceptably long time since I last posted. But I was sick and had my first week of school and stuff. And I’m just going to keep telling myself that that is a valid excuse even though I watched an entire season of a TV show and read three books in that time.

To get myself back into the blogging flow, I am going to do the Day and Night Book Tag! Woohoo! I was tagged by my friend Sydney from Books and Stuff. I tag anyone who wants to do this tag.

And so it begins:

Do you read more in the morning or at night?

Definitely at night. During school breaks I end up reading entire books between the hours of 11pm and 4am. If I haven’t finished a book before I go to bed, I read it while I’m eating my meals (at home). At school, I just read for about an hour or so before bed. I have a greater tendency to get sucked into Netflix and neglect reading when I am at school. Idk why.

Are there any books that changed the way you thought about things?

I can’t think of a specific one off of the top of my head, but the whole dystopian genre has made me more worried for future generations. Also, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality has taught me to aspire to greater goals.

YA or not?

Heck ya! Though many books of this genre have their faults, almost all of my favorite books are YA fiction. And some of the ones that aren’t started out as YA fiction and became classics. I think people don’t give YA enough credit. Many YA characters deal with intense problems at an incredibly young age and must mature quickly in order to deal with those problems.

Are there characters you honestly believe are real?

Um…no.

Nobody touches my books or I don’t mind loaning books out?

Well, my physical book collection is very tiny, so it’s never usually an issue in the first place. But some of the books I have loaned out have magically disappeared into oblivion. I would be fine with loaning out books to close friends, however.

Do you ever smell your books?

sometimes

Not everyone loves books…is this a positive or a negative?

Major negative. It is one of the most frustrating things to me when people say they “don’t read”. Books are wonderous. Everyone should embrace them.

I keep my books in the best condition…or maybe not?

No. This may be sacrilege to some people, but I am definitely a dog-ear-er. Bookmarks annoy me. I have a couple of books that have water damage from their corners sinking into the bath. There are others with missing book covers. My copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has the entire spine backing ripped off. Some of them have food stains from obsessively reading while eating. I will say that these worn out books are the ones that I have read at least 5 times each, so they were going to get destroyed.

Gosh, I have too many books! True or false?

False. I barely have any books. I really want more books, but I really hate spending money. Idk what to do. I just need to get rich so I can live in a library house.

Have you ever spilled or stained your books with something, and if so how?

Yes. Aforementioned food. Probably some nail polish at some point.

Toned or not toned while reading (do you work out and read at the same time)?

Well, I am kind of in a workout lull, so currently no. But I have read books and magazines while on the elliptical during middle school or something. Most of the workouts I do now are videos anyways, so reading wouldn’t work out (hehe).

What should I post next? Do you prefer my book posts or my productivity posts? Let me know please.

12 Days of Book Lists

My friend Sydney from Books and Stuff has started a tag for the holiday season called 12 days of book lists. I thought it was a great idea, and I am going to partake in it. I know it’s not strictly productivity-related, but having enough time to read is a consequence of being productive. Also, reading can help increase productivity in many different ways. Regardless, I am going to try my hardest to somehow relate each day’s post to productivity.
