Booking Through Thursday

If you’re like me, you grew up reading everything under the sun, like the cereal boxes while you ate your breakfast, the newspapers held by strangers on the subway, the tabloid headlines at the grocery store. What’s the oddest thing you’ve ever read? (You know, something NOT a book, magazine, short story, poem or article.)

I am not one of these people who will read anything just to be reading something. Yes, I read headlines whilst in the queue of the supermarket but I think that's just shear nosiness (on my part). I do have to always have a book on the go. I need to know I have started a book even if I don't have it on me. I get antsy if I don't. There has been times when I remember I finished a book the night before and in my rush to leave the house I hadn't started another one or brought on with me with the intentions of starting it. So I have went out of my way of buying another book and read a couple of pages. My sister laughs at me for that.

  5. I'm the same way. That's why I'm so glad I got a Kobo for my birthday. I can carry hundreds of books with me all the time. (:

  8. Same here - I always have to start a new book straight away even if it's three in the moring and I only read the first line. Feels starnge if I don't.
