Everyone else is jumping on the bandwagon so I'm doing it too. :)
How do you find out about new books to read?
I can't really list all the ways I find new or old books to read. How I find them period. I look for books online (not pirated) I read friends reviews, site reviews, follow authors I'm already a fan of, follow publishers.
When I'm out and about people call me a book hound because I always seem to sense or sniff out areas where books are hidden lol
I can be in a giant building and find the one small corner with a tiny stand of books on it. So much that its become a running joke with friends and family.
How did you get into reading?
I think I could read before I could speak. Ha
In all seriousness I don't really know when I got into it because I started reading so early in life. All I know is once I started I never stopped.
How have your tastes in books changed as you got older?
My tastes have never really changed because I've always been into such a wide spectrum of genres. Of course my tastes of matured as I've gotten older but every once in awhile I like to pick up one of the oldies from when I was a kid and get nostalgic, and sometimes I'll get into a phase where I want to read more Non-Fiction than Fiction or read more Sci-Fi than Romance or more Poetry than Erotica but they never really change.
How often do you buy books?
HA. Sometimes every day, several times a day, every week, several times a week... I'm always buying books.
How did you get into reviewing books?
I wrote a letter to an author several years ago thanking her for creating a book that had become a favorite of mine because that book had really become an inspiration to me and my life. It was what I referred to as my security blanket. Her book got me through a lot of hard times. She wrote me a letter in reply and sent me a few other of her works thanking me for the letter. She mentioned posting a review for the books she sent and that's what got me started.
How do you react when you don’t like the end of a book?
Depends on how I feel about the author, their work, how familiar I am with it and whether I care. Sometimes its a pillow tearing fury other times its a simple eye roll, worst case scenario I dump the author.
How often do you take a sneak peek at the ending to see if there is a happy ending?
I've been guilty of checking the end with books I am unfamiliar with. I've only done it a few times but I wanted to see if it was worth investing in because I didn't want to be disappointed. I didn't skip far enough to have the ending ruined for me just enough to see if the investment was worth it.
Do you use bookmarks in your books?
Yes I do. Dog ears drive me bonkers.
Tag your it! Its your turn to pass it on!
