Day One: Fifteen Book Related Confessions

So here is the link to Good Books and Good Wine

About 5 blogs that I actively follow are doing this challenge and I have decided to jump aboard the bandwagon of fun.


Since there are no set rules I have decided to mix it up a little. Each day there will be a new color to go with the entry. Something interesting and different than normal black. I feel if colors like Silver, Orange, Vomit Green don`t get enough recognition like they should.


Day One: Fifteen Book Related Confessions


#1: When I go to people`s houses/apartments I look for their bookshelf to see how well they care for their books.

#2: I attempted a Book Buying Ban awhile back, I actually put myself the pain of walking into bookstores and forcing myself to leave empty handed…I wanted to cry.

#3: Most of the living people I hang out with do not understand my bookish obsessions.

#4: I hate when I DNF a book. It makes me feel as if I should just set it aside and come back to it although if I DNF`ed it, it most likely will not be retried.

#5: I read multiple books at once (4-6) but, if there are two books that have similar character names I have to stop one and finish the other so I don’t confuse the two.

#6: I smell books. I know most bookies do but I feel like I wanted to be included in that group of book smellers.

#7: I physically cannot make myself read a hardback with the dust jacket on. It must be a naked book while I read then it is permitted to be redressed on my shelf.

#8 I haven`t been to my local library in over 5 years. The librarian there isn’t all that nice plus they don’t carry recent books.

#9: I bought a huge purse so I could fit a book and my tablet as well as other pursey things in it.

#10: I am sort of a cover whore. Shiny, dressy, whimsical covers catch my attention.

#11: on the note of cover whorishness. I am not a fan of cover changes midseries but I learn to deal with it and just buy the previous books in the new design to match.

#12: I have convinced Sean that a Walk in Closet just means a mini library. He has agreed to let me do this.

#13: My dream house is centered around a library that only has an entrance from my room. (Mine no one else may enter unless you know the passcode (Sherbet Lemons)

#14: I might obsess over book boyfriends. Like I know my ideal man could never compare to my montage of book boys.

#15: I have read more books then I type reviews for because I am not exactly sure how to write out all my feels. (I am trying to get better at this by writing feels down as I read)


Well there you all go Day One of the book challenge.

  1. Hehe I love how you call it a naked hardback. I'm the same way though. Those things move around too easily and get damaged.

    1. Well aren`t they naked when they have nothing on. I feel as if I take the jacket off and the actual book gets damaged then I can slip the jacket back on and no one could tell the problem.

      Thanks for commmenting

  2. This is a cool idea! I feel like I should actually do some challenges (particularly challenges that will help me blog a little more consistently..). I should just do what you do with dust jackets! I keep having them slip off when I read and invariably get frustrated and very distracted throughout the book because of it..why taking it off never occurred to me...

    1. This is actually the first challenge I have participating in that I have stuck with.
      I have and still am on a road trip for the past two months so I have not been posting as much as I planned on. I have got tons of reading done just nothing posted.
      Just remember to put the jacket in a safe place so it stays in prestige condition.

      thanks for commenting

  3. Hey Ashley.

    #9. Same! If I didn't love books so much I'd probably walk around with a clutch.

    #12 YOU. ARE. LUCKY.

    Even though this challenge is over, I feel inspired to do it anyway. You're an inspiration. :)

    1. There are lots of other blogs that did this challenge. It was on pinterest for awhile then I saw it.

      Cant wait to see your posts.

      #9 I love my huge purse, i use to just be really boyish and carry a wallet in my back pocket.

      #12 I took half of my closet and put in a bookshelf and created my own redneck book nook. Its cozy and my mom laughs at me and shuts me in my closet.


Thank you for commenting. I reply to comments the end of every week. You are amazing readers :)
