This Week's Question is: Inspired by the inane Twitter trend of "#100 Facts About Me," give us 5 BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.

I'll try hard here for the "silly" thing.

1. I love munching sweets while I read; Good & Plenty being my crack of choice IF I let myself which is rarely because I can't stop!

2. I MUST use a book mark. I never dog ear my books or crack spines or anything like that. My books stay in almost pristine condition.

3. I um ::looking around:: will take my books with me into the bathroom. ::blushing:: I have to use every spare moment to read right???

4. If a book is really good for me, I'll stop and read slowly and savor every word, sentence and paragraph.

5. While I appreciate the eye candy on romance novels, I really wish that there were no pictures on covers. Just the title or something. That way I could whip out a book in my doctor's office and not feel embarrassed by the half naked man on the cover and I won't have any preconceived notions of the characters by what is on the cover.

This Week's Question is: "If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?"

Oh what a lovely question to contemplate. BDB, Dark Hunter, The League, Sookie...there are so many delectable choices! I think though that I would like to slip myself into the body and world of Cat from the Night Huntress series. To spend some time with Bones would be just a sensory overload for me. He's uber hot is he not? Yeah, I think that's where I'd want to go. The why? Um...Bones. Hello? Need I say more?

18 and over book blogger tag along is for a specific group of book bloggers. 18 and over book bloggers primarily have on their blog book reviews and post of adult content. In other words, if you read books like erotic and adult romance and have adult pic. then you can play tag along. Sorry YA readers, but if you read both (I know some of you do) you can tag along also.

Question of the Week: Where is you favorite place to buy or swap books?

I have always loved Amazon. I love reading the reviews, I love the never-ending selection, I love the set up, I love how easy it is to purchase and I love how fast my shipments arrive. BUT, because I just bought my nifty new Nook, I am switching my loyalty over to Barnes and Noble. For me, this should be a great thing because I have a local brick and mortar store as well. To have BOTH worlds at my fingertips? Lovely I tell you. Lovely.

Hey! Just hopping through!
I'm the same way with bookmarks! I started to make my hubby use them on my books if he reads them (my scifi books) I hate folded pages!!

It is nice having an ebook reader for the doctor's office, or public places -- that way no one can tell what your are reading!

Anaiz said...

I totally agree about the romance covers! They get a bad rep because of them. I hate folding pages too, I never do it. Hope you have a great weekend!

*Melissa* said...

I really enjoyed your list! I dont like dog ear either on my book ill put stuff as a book mark a spoon, receipts, remote controls ,and other things lying around untill i finally got magnetic bookmarks which are super awesome! I havent read any adult romance novels but i do know what you mean they are pretty hot and fabio looking. Im happy my YA books don't have covers like that!!
I really need to read this night huntress series everyone keeps saying how yummy Bones is and im sure he's pretty badass with a name like that!

Btw I always say this when i visit your blog but ive never mentioned it really love your header, it so pretty and cool. I must admit one of the many reasons I began following you!

Thanks for stopping by my blog

Kelly, I command you to take Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires #1)off of your shelf tonight and start reading! It was soooooo great - steamy, sexy, bad ass vamps in an urban setting, perfection! But on a more serious note, I loved the STORY. If you like strong female protagonists, this is the book you have been waiting for.

I'm totally digging your "silly" book related facts, ha ha ha. I'm a little obsessive about the condition of my books, never fold the pages, ever. I love the iClips magnetic page markers - they never fall out of the book and are oh so cute. And I savor every moment of a good book - I used to get through a book a lot faster than I do now, but so what if it takes me twice as long to read a book if I enjoy it twice as much. And I started giggling at the image of you trying to hide your naughty, naked book cover while waiting for your doctor. Too funny!

Have a great weekend!

Thanks for following Keeping You in Stitches!!

I also: must use a bookmark, take my books to the bathroom (!), and tend to snack (my downfall) when I read... we must have a lot in common!!

Kelly said...

LOL Mandy. I probably should. I have a few library books I have to go through first though because I'm up against a deadline. But it was one of the first books I bought for my new Nook. I will be reading it soon, guaranteed! I promise I'll stop by and let you know what I thought when I do. :) Thanks for pushing me though.

BLHmistress said...

LOL you aren't the only one that takes a book into the bathroom especially its one I can't put down.

When I was younger I dog eared but now I can't do it don't want to ruin my books.

As for what book or world would I jump in , you should know what that answer is lol - New Orleans's Dark Hunters , BDB , Demonica, Atlantis,IAD and Lords shall I go on LOL

Walmart when I get there other than that Amazon

Karen said...

Most of my romance books are on my iPad Kindle app and when I scroll through it looks like I have a porn collection!! LOL Those covers!! I admit I probably wouldn't have bought a few of them at a store because of embarassment.
I thought of all those worlds to live in too but I'm not sure the frequent beatings are worth the trade off for Bones, Eric etc. Maybe if I could slip in for the good parts and slip out during the violence. I'm a wimp.

Redd said...

*smiles* Thanks for hopping by! Don't worry I'm a bit guilty of 3 and I agree. Ever bit of time nabbed to read is golden! XD

And I do the same with 4. This is why I posty flag my books. You should've seen my copy of River Marked. LOVED IT!

I do hope you have a great weekend! =)
Have you tried those magnetic bkmrkers? They are fabulous and stay on the page in case you drop the book. Heaven forbid. *grins*

Aimee said...

I do not dog ear either! I have to use a bookmark if I read a physical book! I'm a new follower! Your blog is really pretty! My FF is at Coffee Table Press

Jenni Elyse said...

I need to use a bookmark too. I don't like dog-earring books. I can't believe I did when I was younger. I shudder at the thought of all the books I did that too.

Paranormal Opinion said...

I'm the same way with a bookmark. I like my books looking like they are still new after I get done reading them :)

Alison said...

Hopping through. I usually read in the bathroom. Otherwise it's boring.

Carissa said...

Yay for the BDB! I probably wouldn't get much done though if I found myself in that series. I'd just sit there staring at all the beautiful men. lol.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Nice to hear from you. Happy Hop!
