Friday 5: Clean

I thought I’d do a meme today. I haven’t done one in a while, having missed out on yesterday’s Booking Through Thursday (though I can probably catch up). Today’s Friday Five is all about cleaning. How apt. What’s in need of a good cleaning? My room!!! It’s clean when you look at it, but in […]

BTT: Something Old, Something New

I haven’t participated in Booking Through Thursday for a long time! I’ve missed it, so here I am again. All other things being equal–do you prefer used books? Or new books? (The physical speciman, that is, not the title.) Does your preference differentiate between a standard kind of used book, and a pristine, leather-bound copy? […]

BTT: Mark the spot

Booking Through Thursday What items have you ever used as a bookmark? What is the most unusual item you’ve ever used or seen used? Here are a couple of bookmarks I’ve used. A – an erasing sheetB -A napkin holder made out of cardboard and ribbons. It was originally in a tube form but I […]


Booking Through Thursday Follow-up to last week’s question: Do you keep all your unread books together, like books in a waiting room? Or are they scattered throughout your shelves, mingling like party-goers waiting for the host to come along? In times when I purchased more than one or two books at a time, the books […]

BTT: Unread

An idea I got from The Toddled Dredge (via K for Kat). Here’s what she said: “So here today I present to you an Unread Books Challenge. Give me the list or take a picture of all the books you have stacked on your bedside table, hidden under the bed or standing in your shelf […]

BTT: Fantasy and Sci-Fi

Booking Through Thursday This week’s question from Debbie: One of my favorite sci-fi authors (Sharon Lee) has declared June 23rd Fantasy and Science Fiction Writers Day. What might you do on the 23rd to celebrate? Do you even read fantasy/sci-fi? Why? Why not? I think that everybody has read at least one sci-fi and fantasy […]

BTT: Niche

Booking Through Thursday What niche books do YOU read? This question made me realize that I actually grew up reading niche books on various topics. My mom is fond of buying books (when she can afford to) on various subjects that she’s interested in. When I was a kid, that was mostly about gardening, houses, […]

BTT: Unread

Booking Though Thursday Is there a book that you wish you could “unread”? One that you disliked so thoroughly you wish you could just forget that you ever read it? Actually… there are quite a few! It’s mostly those books whose endings I didn’t like, or those books that had many disturbing scenes that didn’t […]

BTT: A Second First Time?

Booking Through Thursday What book would you love to be able to read again for the first time? Hmm, interesting question. I can’t think of a specific book to cite as a “second first time” because there’s just so much. Not that I want to “unread” those books, but the anticipation of a good read […]

BTT: Gluttony

Booking Through Thursday Book Gluttony! Are your eyes bigger than your book belly? Do you have a habit of buying up books far quicker than you could possibly read them? Have you had to curb your book buying habits until you can catch up with yourself? Or are you a controlled buyer, only purchasing books […]
