13- I like to buy the eBooks of the physical books I already own in case I ever want to look up something in a book I don’t have with me or just want to read it away from home.
14- Try to read only one book at a time, but I’m easily distracted by other books. Sometimes, I stop one book, because another book came out I’ve been dying to read.
15- I hate to leave books unfinished. I am not one to DNF a book unless it’s horrendous and I just can’t go on. If it’s just okay, I’ll make myself read it. Anything 2/5 stars or under, I can’t do it.
16- I go around sharing my favorite book quotes all the time.
17- The Twilight Saga were the books that made me start reading.

22- I’m afraid to take my books anywhere, for fear they will be damaged. I do this rarely. Mostly I rely on eBooks if I’m stuck somewhere and I need a book.
23- None of my friends understand my love for books. Only a few of them read, and it’s not very often or the same books (usually) It’s a sad life for a book nerd. 😦
