I was’t tagged by anyone to do the Book Addiction Tag. But I was inspired to do it after reading The Bibliophagist post on the Book Addiction Tag.
What is the longest amount of time you can comfortably go without picking up a book?
I can only usually go a day without reading. I feel lost and find it hard to settle if I don’t read one of my books.
How many books do you carry on your person (or kindle) at any one time?
My Kindle is always with me, I’ve recently had to off load some book as I had well over 1000. So now its down to 723.
Do you keep every book you buy/receive or are you happy to pass them on to make space for more?
I Keep most of my books but, every now and then I have a purge and pass them on to charity.
How long would you spend in a bookshop on a standard visit?
On a standard visit I could easily spend a full afternoon in a book store. I just find it so hard to leave them. There is something so magical about a book store, all the colours, pictures and the smell of the books.
How much time per day do you actually spend reading?
I spend at least 2 hours every day reading.
