This won’t come as a surprise for some of my visitors, because my deplorable reading habits have already been discussed at length at a Friday Coffee Chat a long time ago.
But I might be able to come up with a few more, so here we go….
Ten Six Bookish Confessions
1. I dog ear
2. I break spines
3. I miss the due date at the library by 1 day, then have to pay for the full week
4. I sometimes, only sometimes, read the last page of a book when I am somewhere in the middle. However, that doesn’t tell me much as the last page invariably mentions people I haven’t heard of yet.
5. I almost never buy books new. Instead I swap or buy them used. The last book I bought new was “Girl Reading” and that was only because it wasn’t available as a used book anywhere.
6. The second I finish a Harry Potter book and close it I have forgotten the plot. I am not kidding. I do remember some events, like the Quidditch championship or that contest where that Quidditch talent with the Russian name rescues Hermione (a fact I could never understand, by the way, he only knew her a short time) from whatever threat (see, I have even forgotten that), but basically I have no clue about HP. All I know is that it is good boy vs. Mr. Evil.

Prerequisite for re-readability in books: that they be forgettable.
With that in mind, for me the Harry Potter books are as re-readable as they can get.
What are your Top Ten Bookish Confessions? I am curious!
