I seen this tag over at AdeleIsReading and thought I’d do it to. You can see their post here. I’m not sure who created this tag so if you do, please let me know.
What is the longest amount of time you can comfortably go without picking up a book?
It really depends. If I’m really into a new tv show and binge watching, I can go weeks without picking up a book. Sometimes, like now, I don’t want to watch tv so I’ll watch youtube or read my book.
How many books do you carry on your person (or kindle) at any one time?
If we’re talking ebooks on my phone, I have a lot with me. Close to 40 or something so if I’m really bored, I can just start reading. If we’re talking physical I’d say one book because 2 or more would be too heavy.
Do you keep every book you buy/receive or are you happy to pass them on to make space for more?
I keep every book that I buy or receive. If I get it as a gift, I know that I’ll enjoy the book so there’s no need to make space for more.
How long would you spend in a bookshop on a standard visit?
I can spend a lot of time in a bookstore. Maybe,30 minutes to an hour but I rarely buy anything. If I go into a store knowing what I want to buy, I can be out in 15-20 minutes.
How much time per day do you actually spend reading?
I’m not sure. I think on the days that I actually read, I can spend 1 hour to even a whole day just reading. On average I’d say 2 hours.
Where does the task ‘picking up a book’ appear on your daily to-do lost?
Hardly at the beginning of the day because I’m not a morning person.I’d say in the middle or at the end of the day when I’m ready to sleep.
How many books do you reckon you own in total (including e-books)?
About 150-200. I really don’t know. Something along those lines.
Approximately how often do you bring up books in conversation?
Quite a bit. If my friends ask what I’ll be doing I’d normally say reading. Or more likely they’ll ask if I’ve seen a tv show and I’d say I need to read the book then I’ll watch the show. Some of my friends are readers so we talk about books a lot.
What is the biggest book (page count) you have finished reading?
Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas (980 Pages)
Is there a book you had to get your hands on against all odds i.e. searching bookshops, online digging etc?
YES. I wanted a hardback of The Cruel Prince and didn’t buy it when it first came out. I couldn’t find any online or if I did it was a ridiculous price. I wanted them to match so I found a used copy online which was very affordable and it’s basically in perfect condition.
A book you struggled to finish but refused to DNF?
The Knife Of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. I started this a few years ago and only got about 40 pages in. I didn’t exactly DNF it because I knew I was going to get back to it at some point. I’m actually currently reading it.
What are 3 of your main book goals for 2019?
- Finish all the E-Arcs I have from netgalley because I need to get 80%,
- Read all the books on my physical TBR.
- Read 52 books
Have you ever had the privilege of converting someone into a reader (maybe via inspiration or incessant nagging)?
My sister.I think she got influenced by me reading all the time and she’s a reader now.

I’m sorry if you’ve already done this, I’m not sure who has!
