Tater Answers Some Book Related Questions No One Asked

I had nothing on my mind to write this morning. Luckily, The Britchy One  just posted answers to book related questions. I wasn’t tagged, but I’m going to answer them anyway.

Have you ever re-gifted a book that you’ve been gifted? 

No. Generally, when I get books as gifts  they are books that people know I want. Usually the latest Stephen King. I would never regift those unless I somehow received two of the same one.

Have you ever claimed to have read a book when you haven’t?

No. I may have thought I read a book and then realized I never actually did. That type of thing happens when you get old. Otherwise, I see no reason to pretend I’ve read a book I haven’t actually read. I’ not that desperate to impress people.

Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it? 

Yes. I still have my brother’s copy of The Punch by John Feinstein. I still have never even read it. It’s particularly bad because he doesn’t really read books, so stealing one book he actually read and liked is a terrible thing. I don’t feel guilty at all.

Have you ever read a series out of order?

Only by accident. I am very much a “you must read a series on order” person. What kind of monster reads a series out of order? I would never associate with someone like that.

Have you ever spoiled a book for someone? 

Not without permission. I don’t think? It’s possible I have. I’m old. I can’t remember. Maybe? I wouldn’t do it on purpose.

Have you ever skipped a chapter or a section of a book? 

Skipped? No. Skimmed? Multiple times. Sometimes that’s the only way to finish a book you have to finish no matter how bad it is(book club/school). If you don’t want me to skim portions of your book, write better books(says the guy who can’t write).

Have you ever bad- mouthed a book you actually liked? 

What kind of question is that? That makes no sense. Why would someone do that?

That’s it. The end. I don’t think I did a great job of answering the questions. If you made it this far, I am sorry for wasting your time.

Tater out.
