Bookish A-Z Survey | A Book Tag

I was inspired (though not tagged) by Sara from The Bibliophagist and Karen Jo from Sincerely Karen Jo to do the Bookish A-Z Survey. This tag was created by The Perpetual Page Turner so let’s hop into the questions.

So have you done the Bookish A-Z Survey? It’s over 5 years old so you probably have. Link me to them if you have and have a lovely day.


PS. I just realised I forgot about literally all of the Harry Potter sequels for question 2 but I’m too lazy to change my answers so…

  1. I like E-Reader too. I have a Kindle Paperwhite. I agree it’s so convenient. But for books I really like, I prefer paper books to put on my shelf. Is it just me or looking at pretty books on bookshelf is really sastifying lol? 😀
    I don’t know if this is a con or a pro but when you’re reading an e-book, no one knows your reading a book! Everyone thought I was playing some kind of video games!

    • Definitely a con for me because I can feel the judgemental stares of old people thinking to themselves, “these darn millenials with their technologies”

      I was once actually yelled at by a teacher for 10 minutes because I was reading on my phone before school had even started. I doubt she would have said anything if I was reading a physical book.

      • Yeah right? One time I was reading 2 books at once: 1 on my Kindle, 1 as a physical book. When I was reading on my Kindle, no one said a thing. But when I pull out my physical book, everyone came to me and kept asking what was I reading? Damn, one minute ago I was reading too but no one cared.
        I’d say, if you want to read in peace in a bunch of people who is on their phone, read an ebook.

  2. I haven’t done this yet and now I kinda want to! I love that quote by Austen… it’s about George Wickham, right? And a book hangover is when you finish a book but you want more and can’t stop thinking about it (I think). It sort of haunts you for a while.

  3. It hurts me deeply to see “blegh” and The Wise Man’s Fear in the same sentence, as I loved that book so much. But, also, your answer for “F” is hilarious and I may just have to add The Captive Prince to my TBR.
