20 Bookish Questions

Image result for books

So my book blogger buddy Bryan G. Robinson over at Still Unfinished ran this thing called 20 Bookish Questions. I found it interesting so I thought I'd run it here.

What is your favorite fictional food or drink? I'm into hard-boiled detective novels and in the ones I read they often drink either whiskey or a Guinness. These guys don't seem to eat so I can't come up with a fictional food.

How long did it take to finish your last book? I just finished Purity by Jonathan Franzen and it took me just under 2 weeks. But it was a pick it up put it down kinda read. Sometimes I'll zip through a can't put it down book in a couple of days but that's rare.

How many times do you stare at your book or bookshelves each day? I don't. The majority of my books are on iBooks or Kindle.

How many Goodreads friends and books do you have? 42 friends and 388 books on Goodreads.

Do you ever quote books in public? No I never have because it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

Do you ever re-read books? Rarely. I re-read sentences and paragraphs when I get distracted.

Do you judge a book by its cover? There are times, yes.

Instagram, Twitter or Tumblr? Twitter.

Which genre takes you the longest to read? Some novels. I have to learn to determine the length of books before I read them. Kindle often won't indicate page numbers.

Who are your favorite BookTubers or book bloggers? Damned if I know what a Book Tuber is but I'd have to say Brian Robinson is my favourite book blogger. In fact, he's the only one I know.

How often do you pre-order books? Often if it's an anticipated work by a favourite author or the next book in a series I've been reading.

Are you a shopaholic? I can be.

How many times have you re-read your favorite book? I haven't. I always move on to something new.

Do you own a lot of books? Yes.

Do you take pictures of your books before you read them? Why would I do that? They're to be read not photographed.

Do you read every day? Usually, yes.

How do you choose a new book? Usually through reviews or references from friends.

Do you always have a book with you? Usually, yes.

What are your biggest distractions from reading? Decent television series and movies

What is your favourite place to buy books? It's usually either Amazon/Kindle or Apple iBooks. I do miss spending time in a bookstore but these days I find the print in hard-bound books too small to read.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
