top ten Confessions

My Top Ten Bookish Confessions

This week, The Broke and the Bookish want us to reveal our bookish habits and things we probably don't let the general public know about ourselves!  I am only limited to ten?!?

1.  I am probably wanted by a certain Public Library system, as we had moved and took a book with us and I never had a chance to pay the fine.  Do they forgive fines after three years?!? (and the book wasn't that great to begin with!)

2.  I have too many galleys to read, and I want to read the books I have on my new bookcases, and I have no time to read as it is! :(

3.  I have never read any of the Harry Potter series

(but have a very nice collection from ENGLAND - 
The Philosopher's Stone and all that, as well as a few First Editions)

4.  I have dedicated book shelves for my Austen-esque books.  I am very funny about my one is allowed to mess with them!

5.  I despise when people dog-ear a book!  So what do I do?  I leave it open, face down to ruin the binding...

some good advice from the University of Oxford
6.  I like to collect ribbons and bookmarks to use.  My favorite bookmark has this on it!

7.  I cringe every time my husband takes a new paperback and breaks the binding before he starts to read it!

8.  I admit it, I judge books by their covers!  (and am most put out when the book does not live up to its cover!)

9.  I do love my kindle because I can highlight favorite sayings so I can find them again.

10.  When I read a Georgette Heyer book, I use a pencil for a bookmark, because I will write the words I don't know in the back of the book to look up later.  Most of her books will have me looking up at least 20 words I don't know!

How about you?  What are some of your bookish confessions? 
 I guess mine aren't as bad as I thought they would be 
once I put it down on paper... 
but looking forward to hearing about yours!
