🎶Now Playing :: Tea Dance 2 – Another 1920s, 30s, 40s Vintage Tea Party🎶
It’s one of those days where no amount of self-talk or motivation can push me past the first few chapters of my current read.
This alone is enough to overwhelm me with shame and frustration, so I decided that a “guilt” book tag was appropriate as I work through my ‘blah’ emotions, and get my reading mood back in the game.
I discovered this gem on readrantrockandroll.com; take some time to check out her blog since she writes about music, books, movies, and other things.
Let’s get started..
1. Have You Ever Re-gifted A Book That You’ve Been Given?
Who’d do such a thing?! It’s a book, not a piece of filth!!!
2. Have you ever said you’ve read a book when you haven’t?
I’m guilt-free as Cosby himself….
3. Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it?
My previous employer would leave out books for employees/performers to read during their break time.. I might have taken one of those home with me…
4. Have you ever read a series out of order?
The Seaville Wildfire Trilogy by Leighton J Reynolds are the only books I read out of order, mostly because I had no interest in reading them at first, and because the author had given me the second part of the trilogy before he gave me the first book.
5. Have you ever spoiled a book for someone?
Have you not read my book reviews…?
6. Have you ever doggy eared a book?
Oh that thing that reckless people do to books that they supposedly say they love and care for?
Only library books. I’d be a fool if I did that to my own!
7. Have you ever told someone you don’t own a book when you do?
………. The fact that this question even exists is what astounds me. What fool would lie about not having a book? Unless they’re trying to avoid someone… or protect their book from a false borrower who keeps what they’ve asked to borrow…? But my answer is a BIG FAAAT ‘NO!’
9. Have you ever skipped a chapter or a section of a book?
….I did it for my own good. Who wants to read the same repetitive nonsense that you’ve read over an hour already?
10. Have you ever bad mouthed a book you actually liked?
Not really. I’m pretty honest about my likes and dislikes. Now, that I jumped to conclusions and judged a book by it’s cover until I actually read it… that is a different story.
Hopefully this was just the right amount of break and motivation I needed to get back on track with finishing up my current reads. Mostly because my current reads are library books…
What do you enjoy doing when you can’t press through with a book that you want to finish reading?
Do you beat yourself up about not reading when you feel you should or do you take a break in order to feel refreshed and motivated to start reading again?
Thanks for droppin’ by!
