I believe that originally this tag came from Always Trust in Books. I am not entirely sure but I will link it just in case. This just seemed too fun to pass up on.

1. What is the longest amount of time you can comfortably go without picking up a book?
If I am in a slump or busy (like I am now) it can go on for weeks but if I am in the mood maybe 2 hours because I have a problem.

2. How many books do you carry on your person (or kindle) at any one time?
I don't usually carry more than one book on me unless I am traveling. You can usually find me carry one extremely large book at all times.

3) Do you keep every book you buy/receive or are you happy to pass them on to make space for more?
I do keep most of the books I buy, but if I have an extra copy of a book I will gladly give it away. I do need to clean up my shelves so it might be time for an unhaul.

4) How long would you spend in a bookshop on a standard visit?
At least an hour, up to two. Sometimes I go to bookstores and read an entire book there.

5) How much time per day do you actually spend reading?
It depends on how busy I am. If I have things to do, usually before go to bed I can get 3-5 hours of reading in. If I have all day, I could spend 12 hours reading.

6) Where does the task ‘picking up a book’ appear on your daily to-do list?
Usually it is pretty low if I have actual things to do, but if the things I have to do are things like cleaning my room and doing my dishes...... I am gonna pick up the book.

7) How many books do you reckon you own in total (including e-books)?
I do not have an exact count but, i would guess over 700.... I have a problem.

8) Approximately how often do you bring up books in conversation?
I would say 50% of my conversations. I do not have many friends that are into books so I try not to bring it up too much but I just wanna talk about BOOKS! :/ But I do bring up Harry Potter, Twilight and the Hunger Games a lot just because they are series that everyone knows.

9) What is the biggest book (page count) you have finished reading?
I think the longest book I have read was Kingdom of Ash which is 980 pages. That is the last big book that I can remember.

10) Is there a book you had to get your hands on against all odds (i.e searching bookshops, online digging, etc.)?
I usually have pretty good luck when searching for books, but I was looking for a book for my mom and I forget the name, but apparently there was only one left in the country. I never got it... I am still really sad about it.

11) A book you struggled to finish but refused to DNF?
There are so many tbh with y'all. The only book that I really would not pick up again is Graceling by Kristin Cashore. It was so long ago, but it just bored me.

12) What are 3 of your main book goals for 2019?
1. Read at least 30 books
2. Keep up with my blog and posting once a week to every two weeks
3. Go to BEA and BookCon and meet other readers

13) Have you ever had the privilege of converting someone into a reader (maybe via inspiration or incessant nagging)?
I remember I got everyone in my high school to read Divergent my sophomore year of high school. I remember my copy of Divergent was passed around to at least 12 people and I wrote a little message like "Enjoy and cherish this book as much as I did." And a lot of people after that began to read more which was cool to see.

14) Describe what books mean to you in five words.
Bridge into another
