Hello Bookworms,

Welcome to another “Confessions of a Bookworm”. I know I am being annoying thanking you in every post, but truthfully I love reading all your comments. They all make my day. Thanks to everyone, who wished me good luck on my literature competition!

Some bookworm confessions for this week:

Ashley used to be ahead on her assigned reading in high school. When her friends used to ask her if she had done the reading, she used to say that she was behind. The reason? Why do you need a reason? She wanted to keep her assigned reading a secret. All bookworms are secretive! Shhhh!!!

Lizzie said “I hoard books. Yeah, that’s not surprising for a book lover, but I HOARD them. I still have books that I got while in elementary school, which was about 14 years ago. I also tend to check out a crap ton of books out from the library, both physical and ebook form. And then when the due date comes, I don’t want to return them. I’ll oftentimes get behind with my reading so then I have to rush through them so that I don’t have to pay a late fee. And trust me, I’ve had to pay some pretty big late fees. It’s just… all these books call out to me, and I want them all for myself! Yes, I am aware that I have a problem. At least I can admit it.” (Applause for Lizzie)

Jade said: “I don’t like getting rid of books! Even if I have read them, and I will probably never read them again, or if I really didn’t like a book, and never finished reading it. I like the way the books look on my shelf, and I like filling it up with wonderful pages between beautiful front covers, even if I know I will never touch them again!”

“If you would read only one book in your whole life, which one would it be?”

My bookworms’ choices were:

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. (Ashley)

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (Lizzie)

Little Women (Jade)

The Hunger Games Series (Andrea)

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell ( Marsha)

Terri: “Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. It’s a book that somewhat defies classification. It’s romance (not a bodice-ripper), historical fiction, medical fiction, military fiction and science fiction and probably like 2 or 3 other genres on top of that. Each time I immerse myself in the story, as I’m doing right now by listening to the book and watching the series, I’m reminded how much I love (or love to hate) the characters. Lots of great memories come to mind of where the story goes in the other books and how certain characters make me feel.”

This week’s question:

“If you could time travel, and meet your favorite author(someone who unfortunately isn’t among us), what would you do?”

If I were to time-travel, I would love to meet Bram Stoker, and stalk him, until he wouldn’t write “Dracula”, but “Anila”, haha!
