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.

    I hate when I realize I’ve read something out of order. Drives me crazy

        Usually, but I was just lamenting with my daughter this weekend about how we wish some of the teen fantasy were stand alone. We get tired of reading one and realizing toward the end that the story isn’t going to end.

        Yes I can agree with that too. It actually gets painful after a while!
