The Book Addiction Tag

Yes, I am a bookworm. So when I saw this tag, I knew I couldn’t refuse.


What is the longest amount of time you can go comfortably go without picking up a book? This actually depends on the book.

How many books do you carry on your person (or kindle) at any one time? Well, I never carry books with me. Unless, I am taking a book with me on vacation.

Do you keep every book you buy/receive or are you happy to pass them on to make more space for more? I actually do both- keep books or get rid of them. Obviously, I don’t get rid of the books that are on my TBR list. The other ones I tend to keep are ones that ones that matter to me: like Les Misérables for instance.

It is hard for me to get rid of books, but if it ended up being a book I don’t like, then I know I will give that book a way. Yes, I don’t have much space on my bookshelf, but sometimes there are just books you want to keep.

How long would you spend in a bookshop on a standard visit? Usually 30 minutes to 1 hr.

How much more time per day do you actually spend reading? Once again, depends on the book. If it is an easy read, it is easier to read a lot in a day. The opposite happens to tougher novels- as in spending less time per day.

Who does the task “picking up a book” appear to you daily-to-do list? Usually, I am found reading in the morning and at some point in the afternoon. It also has to do with when you finish your current read- if I finish a book too late, then it will not be picked up until the next day, and if you finish a book kind of early in a day, then there is a better chance you will pick up another read that same day.

How many books do you reckon you own in total (including Ebooks)? I don’t actually know- part of the books I read belong to my parents. Well, on my shelf alone, it does feel like a lot of books due to the series I own.

Approximately how often do you bring up books in conversation? I really have no idea.

What is the biggest book (page count) have you finished reading? Les Misérables

Is there a book you had to get your hands on against all odds? Don’t really think so.

A book you struggled to finish but refused to DNF? Defiantly Anna Karenina. Yes, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the book, but one subplot kept me going. I got more into the Levin and Kitty storyline- it is their relationship that kept me reading that book. That book actually is my least favorite book of all the ones I choose to read.

What are three of your main book goals for 2020? I never really set book goals for each year. However, I do know that each year has to include a classic.

Describe what books to you in five words? One of the best escapes

  1. Loved reading your answers to this! Most of the time, reading is school-related for me these days. I don’t really mind, for the most part, since I’m interested in what I’m reading, but I do miss reading novels sometimes! Hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze a few in if I’ve got some spare time! Definitely failing my reading goal this year, but I guess that’s okay, too. 😅
