The Book Addiction Tag – am I addicted to books??

I spotted “The Book Addiction Tag” on Always Trust In Books. It looked like fun, so I thought I’d give it a go!


What is the longest amount of time you can comfortably go without picking up a book?

2 days – there are days when I just cannot get the reading thing going.

How many books do you carry on your person (or kindle) at any one time?

Person – 1. I have no idea how many books are on my Kindle or downloaded on it!

Do you keep every book you buy/receive or are you happy to pass them on to make space for more?

Depends on the book. I’m not a big re-reader, so mostly pass them on. But do keep the ones that have a special place in my heart. Like the Harry Potter series (although I seem to be missing The Philosopher’s Stone).

How long would you spend in a bookshop on a standard visit?

Err…. hours?? Depends on the size of the bookshop, whether it has a cafe and whether Hubby’s with me – he’s not a reader and can loose patience.

How much time per day do you actually spend reading?

Depends on the book! If I’m seriously enjoying it I will read until it is read. If I’m struggling maybe half an hour.

Where does the task ‘picking up a book’ appear on your daily to-do list?

Pretty high. Most times when I go into the town I can’t leave without checking the library!

How many books do you reckon you own in total (including e-books)?

About 400 physical. No idea about e-books. And let’s not even think about all the books I’d like to read which I don’t own!

Approximately how often do you bring up books in conversation?

Depends who I’m talking to, but on a daily basis!

What is the biggest book (page count) you have finished reading?

Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin (848 pages). But I hate big books!

Is there a book you had to get your hands on against all odds i.e searching bookshops, online digging etc?


A book you struggled to finish but refused to DNF?

Game of Thrones!

What are 3 of your main book goals for 2018?

I’ve already done loads of posts about my reading goals for this year!

Have you ever had the privilege of converting someone into a reader (maybe via inspiration or incessant nagging)?

Sadly not.

Describe what books mean to you in five words.

I’d be lost without them!

If you want to have a go, consider yourself tagged!
