Top Five Tuesday 2/18/20


Top Five Tuesday was created by Bionic Book Worm.  You can find the topics on the blog I just linked.


This week’s topic is bookish habits.


I really had to think about this one for awhile to see what kind of habits I have.  Most are probably really common with all of us.


Always have a book with me.  I always bring a book or my kindle with me.  It doesn’t matter if I know I won’t read.  I still put it in my purse or bag.  I even bring them on vacation when I know I rarely read then.


Pointing out the differences between the movie and the book.  I think we all do this one.  I can’t help it.  I try not to do it, but my mouth just starts going.  Luckily we watch most movies at home.


Mood reading.  I’m a mood reader.  Sometimes I can pick anything up and be ok.  Most times, I read a few pages of different books until I find the one that feels right for that time.


Talking about books.  I talk about books.  All the time.  I really do try to not talk about books, but it’s what I know.  It’s either music or books.  Luckily my two best friends, husband, and daughter are all readers.  It works out well.  Not so much with my dad though.


Reading in the bath.  The bath is my favorite place to read.  It’s relaxing and quiet in there.  I close doors and can’t hear a thing.  It’s to the point where I have to read every single time I’m in the bath.  Even if it’s just a graphic novel.   I’ve stayed in the bath way too long many times because I’m so into what I’m reading.


None of these are too weird or too surprising.  I was trying to think of anything odd I do, but nothing came to me.  If I think of anything, I can always add it later.  I definitely have book boyfriends and I tend to talk about characters as if they are real people.


What are some of your bookish habits?

I'm Kristi. I'm a wife, mom, and grandma. I have been breeding leopard geckos for ten years. I love to read and have been trying to review more books (the reason for this blog besides wanting to talk about books with everyone). I also love music and going to concerts, mostly punk and pop punk.

  1. I always have a book with me – my kindle that is (so probably a lot more than just one book). The only times I haven’t taken it with me I’ve regretted it for one reason or another – a lesson well learned.
    I also definitely talk about the differences between the book and it’s adaptation, particularly if I think a particular element has been spoiled – that really annoys me.
    I don’t talk about books with people as much as I used to – I think because I talk with other bloggers such a lot about books, in fact, ironically, the only person that I do still occasionally discuss books with is my dad 😀
