Book Tag ~ Day and Night

Posted 5 March, 2019 by Brandee @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Discussion Posts / 34 Comments

I found this book tag at Rantings of a Reading Addict who found it at Book Dragons.

  • Do you read more in the morning or night?
    I think I read at both times of time in equal measure most of the time. I read while on the treadmill or elliptical, and that’s in the morning. And then I read before bed. I sometimes listen to books while driving or cleaning though and that’s in the afternoon. Um, I’m an equal time opportunity reader?

 

  • Are there any books that changed the way you thought about things?
    Oh tons! In fact, that’s one thing I enjoy most about reading…when an author can make me see something or think about something from a different perspective. There are too many to name, honestly, but here are a few: Tara Lain is good at making me think about prejudices gay men suffer via her Love in Laguna series. Jane Austen. Tara Westover and Yaa Gyasi very recently. Michelle Mankin. Stephenie Meyer. Gah! There are so many! But these came to mind easily.

 

  • YA or not?
    Well, since my love of EVERY genre really started with a little book called Twilight, I have to give YA some love. I actually enjoy YA a lot. There is much more variety in the genre than when I was a teen and I’ve liked reading and sharing books with my own teens. AND there are some really, really powerful YA books out there!

 

  • Are there characters that you honestly believe are real?
    LOL Are y’all going to judge me if I say yes? πŸ˜‰ But I do have to admit to seeing people and feeling like they so closely resemble a character it *must* be them. And then there are the characters that I spend so much time with they feel real to me. So yeah…judge away!

 

  • Nobody touches my books or I don’t mind loaning my books out?
    I don’t mind sharing my books. (I do mind not getting them back!) But I feel loaning is one of the best ways to share the love of books and reading!

 

  • Do you ever smell your books?
    Never.
    Just kidding. Is this another time when y’all are gonna judge? Just last week, I walked into my library (the one in my home) and I inhaled deeply thinking, “I love the way this room smells of books.” Sigh. I also smell books when I’m reading. πŸ˜‰

 

  • Not everyone loves books…is this a positive or negative?
    As a reader, it makes me sad that not everyone loves books. But to each their own, right? I don’t love mountain biking. So I think I’ll go with it being positive because it’s our differences that make the world an interesting place.

 

  • Gosh I have too many books! True or False?
    There is no such thing as too many books. Just too few shelves! Although I will admit that while I love having a choice, the sheer abundance of choice I have is, at times, daunting. I have trouble picking a book!

 

  • Have you ever spilled or stained books before with something, if so how?
    Sigh. Unfortunately this has happened to me. I spilled my coffee on Outlander. *gasp*

 

  • Toned or untoned? In other words, do you read and workout at the same time?
    I most certainly do read while working out. I’ve heard it said that this isn’t a good idea as you don’t get as good a workout BUT I don’t care. Reading while exercising makes the time pass AND it’s the only time I allow myself to read during the day. Thus ensuring I exercise! πŸ˜‰

 

Now it’s your turn! Tag a stab at these questions either in your own post or in the comments!

    I always learn so much about a person and their reading habits from book tags. This was great. I was right onboard with how you responded to most of them. I would need to actually exercise more than once a week to be able to respond to that question. LOL

    Loved it, Brandee!

    Great post!
    I read whenever I can. I’m usually up and gone in the morning, so usually when I get home for a little bit or after tea. I do listen to books when I’m doing housework too. The only book I spoiled was a Richelle Mead one, and the kids threw a wet towel on it.

    how do you read and workout at the same time? both needs concentration, that is one weird question

    • Honestly, it took awhile to figure out how to make my brain focus on the book and not get motion sickness while on the elliptical or treadmill, Ailyn. But I’m so happy my brain figured it out. I wouldn’t work out if I couldn’t read. πŸ˜‰

      • ailynk

        My trainer read somewhere that if you can multitask while exercising you’re not working hard enough haha

  4. I do love this book tag and its nice to see your book preferences. I love read any time of the day although I think I do prefer nighttime or afternoon for reading.

  5. herding cats

    LOL I’m an equal opportunity time reader, too. If there’s a moment I can read I’m gonna read no matter the time of day πŸ˜‰

  6. I loved learning more about you B with this tag! πŸ™‚ we have very similar responses!

    I’m definitely a nocturnal reader. BUT since I’m not reading now but listening to audiobooks I’ve become a creature of light πŸ™‚ Books continue to change my life every second! Educated by Tara Westover definitely one of them! I share my books too and I DO mind not getting them back too lol !) I’m not even going to attempt to answer toned/untoned lol

    I read anytime of the day, whenever I get the chance. I smell my books all the time, I just love the scent they emit. I don’t mind sharing my books, but please return and preferably in the condition it was loaned. One can never have too many books, to little space is the problem.

  8. Fun tag, Brandee! I admit, there are some characters that are so real to me that it’s hard to accept that they’re not really out there somewhere! πŸ™‚ Too many books?! What kind of question is that? LOL

  9. Equal opportunity reader, I love it lol. That’s also one of my fave things about books, being able to see and understand things from different perspectives! I don’t think you’re gonna get judged for sniffing books since apparently everyone does it. I feel like *I* would be judged because I’m like the only person in the book blogging community who doesn’t do it, haha. And that’s how I feel when people say anyone who doesn’t love reading just hasn’t found the right book. That’s not necessarily true? We all like and dislike different activities, and that’s ok πŸ™‚

  10. Some interesting questions. There are so many people, who were turned on to YA by Twilight. That’s a pretty amazing feat. I just read my daughter’s books to have something to talk to her about, and now, I’m hooked.

  11. Tanya @ Rantings of a Reading Addict

    Love your answers! This was a fun tag. Treadmill is definitely the place for reading/listening. I used to read my kindle on the treadmill so it would cover the time and I wouldn’t focus on it. That’s the problem I have with my audiobooks while on the treadmill. I still see the time and it seems to go so slow while you watch each minute tick away! LOL

    • LOL I cover the time on my elliptical. πŸ˜‰ My ereader doesn’t cover the time on my treadmill but for some reason this doesn’t bother me. I can’t do audio while exercising on a machine though. Not enough distraction. I do listen while running/hiking outdoors. πŸ™‚

    OOh fun! I definitely agree with quite a few of your responses. I’m going to have to do this post myself this week!
