Bookish Confessions #2

Yep. I’m a sinner. You all know that from my first list… this is just shameful.

 

1. It took me over a year to read all the books I got for my birthday.

I said I’d read them all ASAP, but I just kept going to the library. And reading on my new Kindle. And the cycle never…. ended…. #sendhelp.

I’m a monster. You’ll all be happy to know, that another birthday has passed and I’ve read all but one of these books! 😀

2. I usually buy books online… sorry independent bookstores!

It’s true! I use the website booko.com.au to compare prices (in AUD) and they usually come from Book Depository or Abe Books. Shame on the big franchises like Dymocks and QBD literally charging 3x the amount on a paperback!

and finally… 3. I enjoyed a movie adaption more than the book!

In case you’re wondering which book, it was The Hobbit! Albeit, I did watch all three movies before listening to the audiobook years later, but high-fantasy is much more enjoyable (for me) when I hear the beautiful compositions and see all the cool magic effects.

That’s all for now! If I continued, I feel like bookworms would start coming to my home and start booing outside my window.

Are you guys particularly guilty of any bookish unpopular habits/opinions?

One thought on “Bookish Confessions #2

  1. there aren’t many independent bookstores where I live (barnes and noble and books a million have a monopoly) but sometimes I go to larger cities and try to find sale books! but mostly I do just buy them online.

    I also have 18 books on my shelf that I own and haven’t read because the library books NEVER STOP. and I should read library books first because they’re not mine and might expire (lol no one ever requests our teen books–I once found a bookmark I lost back in a library book) but I keep borrowing more and will just never read these books. what to do what to do.
