Where do you usually get your books?
Usually I go to bookstores like Barnes & Noble and Books A Million. But I actually prefer shopping at local, smaller book stores that sell used & new books.
Where do you usually read your books?
On my bed or in a comfy chair.
When you were little, did you have any particular reading habits?
Not that I remember. But around elementary to middle school I would spent a lot of my summer days at my grandma’s house. I would sit down in one of her comfy chairs and read for hours upon hours. Sometimes I would listen to audiobooks.
What’s the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because it was so good you couldn’t put it down?
Ummm.. when “Breaking Dawn” by Stephenie Meyer, lol. I got home from the release party at 3am, read a good chunk of the book, slept for a couple of hours and woke up to finish to the book. I read it in under 10 hours. If don’t have something important to do the next day I will stay up to read books til about 3am, especially if I’m on vacation.
Have you ever “faked” reading a book?
Sparknotes and wikipedia…that’s all I have to say…..
Have you ever bought a book just because you liked the cover?
Yes, I do it quite often. It’s a bad habit.
