We need to talk about books! #2

This week I have the pleasure of catching up with Bree from Perpetual Fangirl, where she writes about books and anything else that she fangirls about. Which is a lot.

Are your bookshelves a ‘work in progress’ like mine or are they clearly and systematically organised? Tell us a little bit about your method if you have one.

My books are an organized mess. I know exactly where everything is, but there’s no clear organization. The only clear organized section is my JLA shelf.

Apart from books, what is to be found on your bookshelves?

My bookshelves are basically my display case. I have all my Harry Potter pop figures, and every other pop figure I have collected over the years (Ariel, Mrs. Potts and Chip, the Cookie Monster). I also became pretty fascinated with those fold and display books, so I have a few of them.

What do you do with books once you’ve read them?

I tend to keep them, but every year or so I clear off some of the books and either give them to my cousins or if they don’t want them, I donate it to the YMCA in my city. They have an awesome ‘take a book, leave a book’ shelf that’s free for all the kids in the city to use.

Do you tend to re-read books?

Always. I’m a huge rereader. I love reading books and knowing I’m going to love them. Some of the series that I’ve loved in the past I've reread 8-9 times; mostly the Tigers Saga by Colleen Houck and the Lux series by Jennifer Armentrout. But I’ve also read Easy by Tammara Webber at least 6 times.

Have you ever read or started reading a book only to realise that you had already read it?

That happened to me a few times. Usually I just keep reading, unless I remember not liking the book.

How do you feel about lending books to friends?

I’m not opposed to it by any means. But I basically have the agreement that if you wreck it, you replace it. It was an agreement I had with my mother years ago because she basically destroyed every book she touched. (I’m not exaggerating, she was really clumsy and spilled coffee on so many of my books.)

Are you a ‘spine bender’ or do you like your spines to be pristine?

I am somewhat of a snob when it comes to my books. I’m terrified of damaging them. But truthfully, it’s mostly because books are so expensive, I don’t want to ruin them.

Do you take a book with you whenever you go out, just in case?

I always have my ereader with me and my phone has both the Kindle and Kobo app, so I’m always prepared.

If you have a partner, do they love reading too? If they do, do you have the same taste in books? If they don’t, have you ever tried to convert them?

I married a gamer that has no interest in reading. I tried to convert him a few years ago and got him to read one YA zombie series, but he really doesn’t enjoy reading.

If you were to write a book, what genre would it be?

Definitely romance. Probably an NA or Adult romance with lots of fluff and not a whole lot of anything else. I love my fluff.

And that was my last question for you! Thank you so much for joining me today!
