D.a.y. a.n.d. N.i.g.h.t. Book Tag

Lizzy at My Little Book Blog tagged me for this very fun “Day & Night” BLOG thingy-ma-jig, and I’m super excited to finally be getting a chance to do it! Thank you, Lizzy. 🙂 I’m happy you thought of me. Now, on to answering those questions. 🙂 Here we go!

 D: Do you read more in the morning or at night?

I’d have to say at night. Lately, my habit of reading has been primarily blog related because of all the wonderful #BlogBattle stories my wowiweb friends write each week. But most of my reading pleasure is in the evening. I’m that person they made this meme for:


 A: Are there any books that changed the way you thought about things?

There probably is at least one, but I think more often than not I’ve read books that reinforced the way I already thought about things. There are books which have certainly opened my eyes to circumstances and tragedies I was unaware of, things that break my heart, like Left to Tell

Left to TellThere are also those books that have worked to stir up my thinking like the school standards of Lord of the Flies, Fahrenheit 451, To Kill a Mockingbird, and 1984.

 Y: YA or not?

Most definitely. While this category is supposed to be about coming of age sorts of things, I think that even us old people can identify with the characters and their struggles to a certain extent. Most of the time I think I’ve not truly grown up, that I’m still in process.

A: Are there any characters you honestly believe to be real?

No. There are plenty I wish were real, but I haven’t gotten to the point I believe any of them are real. Although, I do have to say, William Goldman almost had me convinced S. Morgenstern was a real guy. haha I’m pretty sure that whole thing with Mr. M is a story surrounding a story!

N: Nobody borrows my books or I don’t mind lending them out?

Certain books I’m super protective over, but I’m a lender for sure. I always tell my kids, books are meant to be shared. I have to remind myself of that sometimes, but they bring me joy, so it’s good that I share the happiness. Right? I hope I’m right. *bites lip and looks around, sure I’ve made a huge mistake*

D: Do you ever smell your books?

Yes. I don’t do it repeatedly, but upon first getting one, I do. I enjoy the various smells of paper books. When I get them on my Kindle I am definitely missing out on this simple pleasure.

N: Not everyone likes books, is this a positive or a negative?

It’s a tragedy, is what it is! No, really, I get it. I don’t care for noisy smelly car races, but that doesn’t mean they don’t provide some enjoyment or benefit, I suppose. I’m not 100% a “to each their own” sort of person, but I’d think it a better world if everyone liked books. ;P

 I: I keep my books in the best condition or maybe not? Which are you?

I do try my best to keep them in tip-top shape, but I would be lying if I said they all stay so. I’m a maybe notter and that’s a good thing because it makes it easier to loan them out! While I want my books taken care of by others, if I get them back a little worse for wear, it just means my friend loved my book as much as me.

G: Gosh I have too many books! True or False?

Yes. That’s what my husband would say, but for me. NO. Is it even possible? I’m not so sure . . .

 H: Have you ever spilled or stained your books before with something, and if so how?

Yes, but there’s not real big or exciting story attached. It was my coffee. I have a hole in my chin. Not literally, but you’ve probably heard the phrase. I’m a klutz, and I spilled. That’s the gist of it. I still love my Jane Austen Triple Book in One!!!

T: Toned or untoned while reading? . . or in other words. . .Do you read and workout at the same time?

to quote the lovely Miss Lizzy, “Me? Work out. You are kidding right?” Haha I don’t have the talent to work out and read at the same time, but I’m going to start working out again. Really. Don’t give me that look. I really am going to start . . . eventually. After I’m done with my book. 😉


Thanks for sticking with me through my answers to the “Day and Night” tag. I now tag E. Rawls to complete this challenge and anyone with a variation of the word write in their website name. That was fun! Can’t wait to read your Day and Night tag!

  1. I loved the question and answers. Although, i don’t know if is the teacher or age part of me that must protest about the part where you say, even “old” people ——- I would much rather you had said “older”. Said with love. : )

  2. A person can never have too many books, Rachael. 😉 I’m a firm believer of that.

    Nice answers here! I’m also a night reader, though I’ll bring a book to read if I’m eating out alone or waiting for a doctor’s appointment during the day. And I read YA fiction as well as adult fiction, too. To me, the target age doesn’t matter to me. If it seems like a good all-around story, I’ll read it. 🙂

    1. There you have it! Confirmation. 🙂 Thanks, Sara. I forgot about appts and things. Yes, if I’ve forgotten my book then I’ll be reading from my phone for sure. 🙂 Thank you. You said that so much better. It all comes down to a good story. 😀
