Book Blogger Hop

This week's Questions is...

 "Since today is April Fool's Day in the USA, what is the best prank you have ever played on someone OR that someone has played on you?"

Honestly, I have no idea. I am not big on pranks and I cannot really remember having any played on me. Watch, now that I've said that I am going to fall for something tomorrow. Just you wait and see :)

 
I also participate in Follow Friday, so those of you who popped by from that, thank you - and thank you parajunkee for hosting it!   

This Week's Follow Friday Question is..

Q. Inspired by the inane twitter trend of #100factsaboutme, give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.

Isn't that the same question from last week? I think it is lol. No matter, I will just add 5 more fun facts to my list :)

 

1. If I read an ebook that I really love, I have to buy the actual book too.

2. Like Rebecca, I read EVERYWHERE... in class, at stoplights, at gas stations, while walking, at the gym, pretty much everywhere I shouldn't. 

3. I buy multiple copies of books sometimes, especially the paperback ones that get those horrible spine lines :( I also buy multiple copies so that I can have matching sets

4. I do not organize my books in any sort of logical manner, I keep series together, but I mainly just do what looks pretty

5.  I NEVER write in my books - not even textbooks. I cannot make myself deface any sort of book. I just buy lots of those little post-it page markers - you know the ones that come in different colors? I've been using these but I just stumbled on these babies when I was trying to find a link - I think I am going to have to give those a try :) Those look more efficient because you mark the actual lines, instead of the page.

6.  My TBR List is absolutely ridiculous. I currently have 619 books on it :)

7. I always re-read my favorite parts of my favorite books. When I am getting ready for bed, I will usually go back to my favorite sections of those books and read them - even if I am currently reading a new book. 

8. I have always been able to read in a moving car.. that is when I am riding, not driving (unless I am at stoplights!).

9. I love to people watch - I always like to imagine what a person's favorite book is. I also always try and guess what people are listening to when they have headphones in.

10. I was a total book snob for a long time. I wouldn't read sci/fi books or urban fantasy/paranormal romances. Now look, I review all of those genres. Life's funny isn't it? I still feel awkward buying paranormal romances at the store though, I still won't buy the ones with Fabio-esque covers in person, I just order them online. What can I say, I am easy embarrassed lol.

Hopping through! :) That's usually how it goes, first you're never pranked and then someone gets you. Just like my college roommate.

No pranks! At least you've got time for tomorrow.
