Picking books I will Like
I straight up stole this good habit from Consu because I couldn’t think of anything. But I am really good at picking books I will like, I like most of what I read!
I am not super picky about the condition of my books, so I don’t mind lending them, and I am not protective of them. If they don’t get returned to me (as long as it doesn’t become a regular habit) I don’t mind thinking of it as a gift! Especially if they really liked the book!
If I am with a child at a book store I will always buy them at least one book
So this one has a story behind it. I was at a used book store, and there was a mom that was buying about 5 books for herself but when her daughter picked out a book she told her daughter she couldn’t have it. I am sure there is more to the story, maybe the daughter has a million unread books at home, but they were in the store for a good hour and the mom wouldn’t let her daughter get a book. And, even tho her daughter kept asking, the mom didn’t give a good reason, she just kept saying “not today.” I ended up buying the girl her book (it was a middle grade chapter book for like $2) because I could never imagine not buying a child a book! Both prior to this and since then, I have been in book stores with my brother and/or niece and I always have them pick out a book! Even my brother who doesn’t like reading, if I drag him to the bookstore he gets a book!
I am not judgy about other people’s reading habits
I love Pride and Prejudice but I know a lot of people don’t, and that is ok! We don’t have to like the same books. Life would be boring if everyone liked the exact same things! Do you like horror books? Good for you! I hate them haha. And its not just the type of books – I don’t care if you have different views on book care too. I am not careful with my books, but if you are, I respect that. If I borrow one of your books I will keep it in the condition you lent it to me in, because I know it matters to you. Everyone has different quirks and that is what makes the blogging community so great.
I am going to tag Leslie and Malanie for this one because I tagged them for the bad reading habits tag, and I think these go together really well!
As always, don’t feel obligated to participate! But, if you do, let me know so I can check out your answers!
