Hello! A tag today. I wasn’t tagged by anyone, but wanted to do it anyways. So pbtbt.
Have you ever regifted a book you’ve been given?
Nope! If I am gifted a book that I have no interest in, I tend to hang onto it for a bit in hopes that my interest sparks. If a year or so passes and I still have no interest, I usually donate or trade it in. Haven’t regifted, though.
Have you ever said you’ve read a book when you haven’t?
Yes… and it’s been to people who bought me books that I wasn’t interested in, honestly. I’d rather do the white lie than hurt their feelings.
Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it?
No. I’ve borrowed books for a very, very long time, but I’ve never borrowed a book and not returned it. I wrote a rant about this very thing.
On the other hand, which is… kind of an exception? I guess?, I was force-given a couple books to borrow that I didn’t want in the first place by an ex, and then we broke up before he got them back. I have no motivation to speak to the guy, but the books are still considered ‘borrowed’ I guess. If he wants them back, all he has to do is ask and I’ll ship them to him. I promise I’m not keeping them on purpose. -_- I didn’t lie about them or keep them out of spite, but it’s hard to give a book back when there’s an ocean between you. I’ll mail them! He just needs to let me know he wants them and give his address.
So does that count? I don’t know. Sigh. This probably makes me a hypocrite.
Have you ever read a series out of order?
Have you ever spoiled a book for someone?
Not intentionally, but it has probably happened.
Have you ever doggy eared a book?
Have you ever told someone you don’t own a book when you do?
Nope! What’s the point. I wouldn’t buy any books in the first place that I would be embarrased to own. 😛 That’s what the library or the internet is for, hawhawhawh.
Have you ever told someone you haven’t read a book when you have?
Nope! Again, same reasoning as above.
Have you every skipped a chapter or a section of a book?
I tend to only do that to books that I end up DNFing. If I find myself skimming, then I’m likely not enjoying the thing.
Have you ever bad mouthed a book you actually liked?
Probably, yes. I tend to write positive and negative things about books I like in my reviews, so if you count that as badmouthing, sure. You don’t need to be 100% positive about a book you like.
And that’s it! Happy reading! 😀
