7 Bookish things about me

Kalea Kane
tagged me for this meme a day or so ago. As promised... here's my 7 bookish things...

1. If I can't read it in one sitting, I'm not reading it. Fortunately, I read fast, so as long as I've got an hour or two, I can get it done. :)
2. This rule is reverse for nonfiction. I only read about a chapter at a time, otherwise, I don't get the full meaning.
3. I dream of a weekend getaway where I get to do nothing but read. (And trust me, I could really use it to catch up on all my reading!)
4. If I think about a phrase in a book, I must re-read the entire book as quickly as possible or I'll go nuts. Not sure why, but it's a strange compulsion.
5. Because of the aforementioned compulsion, I have to own all the books I read. Otherwise it takes too long to find the book that's driving me nuts.
6. I LOVE reading in the bath. Hate when a book gets wet.
7. I'm a pristine book reader... I do not crack spines or crease pages. That's just wrong. Wrong, I tell you!

So now I have to tag people... hmmmm.... let's see if I can do seven...

1. Jan
2. Siteseer
3. Pammer
4. Jana
5. Dianne
6. Janet
7. YOU!!

I absolutely can't stand it if I damage a book...I have 'pristine' compulsion too. Once in a while I come across a book I want to own, not very often. There has to be something very special about that book for me to want to buy it, otherwise I am happy to use a library. :)

Great answers!!!! I am a total bath tub reader. Of course, I rarely get that luxury now. I miss my old clawfoot tub! My dream is a nice big garden tub that I can just kill a day in! :)
