Have you ever read a library book you loved SO much, you just HAD to own it, so you bought a copy for yourself after returning the library book you had already finished? (submitted by Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books)

Yes, although I bought them MUCH later than when I read them from the library. I read the Little House on the Prairie series in elementary school (and re-read them at least 10 times). That is the next book purchase on my list. I also read Perfect and started the Bloody Jack series in high school, and after graduation and making my own money, I bought both of these books. I own all the books in the Bloody Jack series now and I still adore them. I also did the same with the Harry Potter series, which I read through the Amazon Lending Library after I graduated college. I now own two box sets (one I’m going to give to my mom), and the illustrated copies that have been released.

What would you give as a birthday gift to a fellow book lover? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

I am a horrible gift buyer. Maybe because nobody talks about what they’d want around me and it kinda sucks to ask. My first line would be a gift card to a book retailer (Amazon, The Book Depository, B&N, etc.) because you can buy all kinds of books or bookish things with it! The next thing on the list would be some bookish related items to adorn their shelves and accompany their books.

How do you choose the next book to read? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

Honestly, I am so backlogged on NetGalley it’s not even funny. I didn’t know how it worked at all. I thought it was endless opportunities to have new books, so I have a daunting mountain of books to still read. I am trying to work my way back through them all, so I pick 6-12 books from that list for a “short list” to choose from. Usually that works well, but I also throw in a new NetGalley book or other book every so often, but my goal is to get through as many of those as I can and clean up those digital corners of my life.

Do you always have a book with you? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

I guess technically I do since I have the Amazon Kindle app on my phone somewhere, but I have never used it. I used to bring my Kindle with me everywhere until my purse started getting too heavy. I have this past week been packing my new Kindle Oasis with me, thinking I would have opportunities to read throughout the day. So wrong.
