Book Tag – How I Read

Posted on Tuesday, November 17, 2015 in Literature

I found this on Nya Reads, and I thought I’d do it too.

How do you find out about new books to read?

From Booklikes mainly, but also other book sites, like Goodreads.

How did you get into reading?

I don’t remember. LOL. Actually, I learned how to read when I was about 3 years old, so I’ve been reading ‘real’ books, that is, books for kids, who could read, for a very long time. Before that, I had picture books read to me by primarily my mom, but I think also my grandmother. My dad (and to some extent my mom and grandmoter) loved reading, so I guess it was only natural.

How have your tastes in books changed as you got older?

Not much, except for one thing: I now like science fiction too.

How often do you buy books?

Me personally? Practically never, unfortunately. I tend to get them either as birthday presents or as Christmas presents. because I can’t afford to buy that many books.

How did you get into reviewing books?

Hm. Oddly enough I don’t really remember. I guess it’s because I joined Goodreads, several years ago. Those reviews spilled over to my personal homepage/blog and my Booklikes blog, because I can’t resist posting them everywhere I can.

How do you react when you don’t like the end of a book?

I’m afraid it ruins the whole book for me. Usually, I don’t even review it and I’d never read it again.

How often do you take a sneak peek at the ending to see if there is a happy ending?

I try not to, but it happens. Fortunately, most books have a happy enough ending so I can finish reading them.

My own question:

Do you use bookmarks in your books?

I used to dogear my books. (I’m so ashamed!). These days I don’t do anything. I always seem to be able to find my place anyway.

Finally, I am tagging everyone who wants do this too!
