When you visit a friend’s house, do you find time to browse their bookcases? Does it shock you if they don’t have one? Absolutely! Doesn’t every bookworm do this?? I try to check out their shelves to see if I’ve read some of them, so we can discuss it and go crazy if it was a good book. If they haven’t read it and I enjoyed it, I make sure to tell them to read it ASAP if it’s lifechanging. It does kind of shock me if they don’t have bookcases because I have so many of them.

If I could give a brand new, really good book by your favorite author (living or dead) RIGHT NOW, what would you be willing to do for it? Oh goodness, favorite author?? How am I supposed to pick that! It goes without saying that Harry Potter is my favorite book series, but I don’t think that necessarily makes JK Rowling my favorite author. Although, I will say that I would like another Harry Potter book more than almost anything/any other book series. As for the actual question: I’m honestly not sure. I hope JK Rowling wouldn’t be selfish and only give ME the book… because what fun would it be to have the book and not be able to fangirl over it with everyone else? Sorry this didn’t really answer the question…I’m sneaky like that.
I’m going to do the past two Booking Through Thursday topics to get myself started. Do your reading habits change in the summer? Absolutely! I read SO much more during the summer. When I was in college it was essentially the only time I was able to read for pleasure. Lunch breaks, sitting outside at a table or under a tree, were my favorite time to read. There’s nothing that says “summer” more to me than sitting out and reading a book. I used to love making laps walking around my pool while reading too. Different kind of reading … what do you think about letters? Do you ever send them anymore? Receive them? Or do you just do email and texts instead? Do you miss the days when people used to write letters? I typically only write letters to my grandma at this point. There is something special about getting a letter or card in the mail, but it happens so rarely it doesn’t bother me when I don’t get any. I primarily email and text. I was sort of too young to even write letters when they were popular.
