Welcome to another Top 5 Wednesday! Today is all about bookish habits, and I believe any and all readers have them. So, without further ado, let’s get started!
5. I smell my books.
I’m pretty sure everyone does this. (No? Am I weird?) There’s just something about physical books and smell, man. They smell like nostalgia and they just smell… nice. xD I don’t know how else I can really explain this one, but yes, I sniff my books.
4. I don’t let people borrow my books.
This isn’t really a habit, but I just hate letting other people take hold of my possessions. It’s a thing I’ve had for a long time ever since I let someone borrow a book and it came back to me with the cover completely ruined (and she tried to say I gave it to her like that when I KNOW it was in pristine condition). Ever since I don’t let people borrow my things unless I have 100% trust in them that they won’t somehow wreck them.
3. I start multiple books at a time.
I start reading multiple books at the same time sometimes. Even though I do this I can still separate the worlds from one another and enjoy each story individually rather than getting them confused.
2. I flip to the back and read the last paragraph or two of the book.
I do this before starting a book. I’ve been better lately and haven’t done it in a while, but I still just want to know the end so I’m not surprised. Is that bad?
1. I have to finish a chapter before I put the book down for the night.
When I’m reading a book it’s really hard for me to just put it down and pick it up later if I stop at a random place. I need to finish the chapter or a section before putting it down. It feels more completed that way and it’s easier for me to remember what I read last.
