Today’s Question:

In regards of Banned Books Week (www.bannedbooksweek.org/), what are your favourite books that has been banned or challenged?

 

Harry Potter would be the most famous one of them all, and The Hunger Games series. I try to make it a point to read books that have been challenged or banned just to see what the hoopla is all about.  🙂

Happy reading weekend all!

Today’s Question:

Have you ever bought a more expensive edition of a book, when a cheaper edition was available, just because you preferred the cover of the more expensive one?

 

Oh hell yes. Especially if it’s a series. If the series don’t have matching covers hell breaks loose and I go on a hunt to find them. Harry Potter was a big thing for me. Unfortunately not all my covers match for that one.

It’s like the series if some are hardcover and some paperback. Nope. All. Must. Match. 😀

Happy Reading this weekend all!

Happy September!

Today’s question:

Do you participate in The Bloggiesta?

 

I often don’t really participate in these events anymore. The most I’ll do now is a book tour. Likely because whenever I do sign up for these fun events SOMETHING always happens where I don’t get to do it. Life has a way of making fun of me when it comes to events.

Have a great long weekend everyone! read read read!

Today’s Question:

Have you ever read a book written in a foreign language you might be fluent in, and then read the same book in English?

 

Ooooo I like this one! what a great question.

I have read several books in a different language I’m fluent in. I’ve read various French books BUT I’ve never read the same in English. Just never thought of reading the same book in a different language. Maybe because most books I’ve read are a one time read and then I move onto the next one (very few books I would reread again.) I wouldn’t mind giving it a try to see if there’s any differences.

Have a Great Reading weekend! I need to pick up the slack from this week!

Book Blogger HopToday’s Question:

When you enter an unfamiliar house or apartment for the first time, do you feel disappointed if you don’t see any bookshelves, or books on the coffee table?

 

Not really. I’ve accepted the fact that not everyone loves to read as much as we book bloggers do. However when I *do* see books in the unfamiliar setting that would be one of the first things I go to, to look. What people have on their shelves and coffee tables says a lot about them. 🙂

Happy Friday and happy reading all!

Today’s question:

Do you participate in readathons and/or reading challenges?

I used to eons ago when I used to have a lot more time than nowadays. Being a stepmom now and a wife it’s hard to fit in reading time. Perhaps one day when I get back into a more easier rhythm, perhaps I’ll rejoin the challenges and readathons. 🙂

Happy Reading all!! let’s finish our books!

Today’s Question is:

Do you ever go “way back” to when you first started blogging and look at your old review posts? Do you see any differences from then to now?

I have. I’m not sure if I changed much with my reviews. Maybe nowadays I’m more wordy and my reviews tend to get longer. It’s nice to look back and see how much reading you’ve done and how far you’ve progressed. 🙂

Well everyone! have a great reading weekend! also follow me on instagram if you’d like, as I post my #fridayreads there (among other things, like food). (@sensitivemuse)

Have a great one!
