The Book Addiction Tag

Greetings readers!

It is ridiculous how behind I am on tags. I am sure I even forgot to make note of some of the more recent ones I have been tagged in–and for that I am truly sorry! I hope you know I how much I appreciate you every time you tag me in something!!

As for today’s tag, I found it in my Drafts folder so I thought I would give it a go! My thanks goes out to Bibi @ Bibi’s Book Blog for tagging me!! (I know it was such a long time ago, but I am finally getting around to it XD)

What is the longest amount of time you can comfortably go without picking up a book?

A week, maybe two. Eventually I’ll just get bored or have the craving to read something and find myself browsing my shelves or the library.

Do you keep every book you buy/receive or are you happy to pass them on to make space for more?

Yes. Sometimes I’ll gift them if I have duplicate copies, but I have a habit of holding onto all my books, even those I am not so fond of.

Have you ever had the privilege of converting someone into a reader (maybe via inspiration or incessant nagging)?

Maybe my cousin? I got her to read a lot more YA fantasy, I mean she was already a reader, I just got her to like my kind of books. *evil laughter*

    • I always take a stab at the ToG series when I can #noshame

      I would donate my MG titles…but I am way to sentimentally attached to them. I would want to give away some of my ARCs though. I don’t need nor want them all….hmmmmm…maybe I shall plan something!

      • Own it. I support. Never be ashamed! *claps*

        MG titles are soo sentimental. It’s so hard to put in words how it feels to look back on the books you read when you were just a young little book lover. Ooooo, is something in the works? A …. giveaway? O:
