Book Tag | The Book Addiction Tag

Hey people! Welcome or welcome back to my blog!

It’s been a while since I did a book tag, and so I decided to give one a go! I found this tag on library in the tower, and it seems rather fun, so I thought of giving it a go!

Also, I hate WP, this is the second draft of the post you’re reading- it deleted almost the entirety of my first one😭😭

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

If I am in a slump, it might be a long time, but even then I try to read at least a few pages daily.

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

I have at least one physical book on me at any time, and multiple ebooks on my phone.

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

I do keep every book I buy/receive because honestly, I am too attached to them? They are like my babies, and well, I need to keep them, cuz, yeah.

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

Literal hours, if it’s a good, big book store. There’s just something so peaceful and soothing about roaming around in book stores.

How much time per day do you actually spend reading?

Before college, I used to spend like an hour or so daily, but after college started, I’ll be lucky to spare half an hour on a weekday. But I do spend like an hour and a half on weekends, so yeah.

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

Whenever I am bored, and like even in between classes, I read on my phone. I also try reading before I sleep, at least a few pages.

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

Um, I guess I have around 300 physical books, and well, I honestly don’t know about ebooks.

Approximately how often do you bring up books in conversation?

VERY OFTEN. I mean, the thing is, I live, breathe and speak books. Like there’s something someone will say and I’ll be like, wait, that’s a book reference, and then I’ll realise oh, they probably just said it- they don’t know it’s that book’s reference, and I’ll be having a full-fledged conversation with myself, because of course, I will.

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

It’s got to be Kingdom of Ashes (The last Throne of Glass novel), which is like a 900+ page novel.

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

Ah, I don’t think so, I mostly find everything I want online.

A book you struggled to finish but refused to DNF?

The Summer I Turned Pretty, the entire trilogy for sure. I mean, I wanted to know what the hype was for, and hence I completed the trilogy. Wasted several sacred hours of my life.

What are 3 of your main book goals for 2022?

  1. Maximize reading
  2. Read other genres- ones that are outside my comfort zone
  3. Finish my Goodreads reading goal.

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

Sadly, no. I have incessantly nagged people, but none of them have converted. I know, I know, it’s bad, but I am working on converting people constantly, guys.

Describe what books mean to you in five words.

Escapism. Happiness. Heartbreak. Magic. Peace.


That’s all I got for you today! Feel free to do the tag if you wish to! Let me know what books mean to you in five words in the comments!

  1. All of this is so relatable 🤣 Although I have gotten a lot better at getting rid of books! Constantly moving makes you realize that owning a ton of stuff maybe isn’t the greatest…

    And I’m always trying to convert people into readers, too, with my poor students having to face the brunt of my enthusiam 😇🤣
