Top Ten Tuesday: 8/28/12 - Top Ten Bookish Confessions

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND post a comment on our post with a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post to share with us and all those who are participating. If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.

Top Ten Bookish Confessions

Yara's Confessions:
  • One of the places I read is in the shower not the bath. The shower is running on full blast and I sit but place the curtain behind the book and my arms so the book does not get wet. I'm not a fan of baths. - Yara 
  • Since I don't like dog ears in books, I will use just about anything that won't damage a book as a bookmark. It can be a leaf, receipt, toilet paper, hair, you name it Ive probably used it. Your probably wondering why don't you use bookmarks, I do but for some reason they seems to disappear when I am not home and I have to use whatever means necessary. - Yara 
  • Since the fire I haven't really bought new physical books since I don't have storage space for them now. So ebooks have been my route lately. that will change once my new house is complete with my new built-in bookshelves. - Yara 
  • I suck at grammar. So when you see a review from me, know that it took me longer than normal probably since I have to spellcheck it like a thousand time and correct formatting or words. This is why I can never even think about becoming a writer, it would take me 10 years to write a first draft. - Yara 
  • I finally can say that I have at least read the first Harry Potter book and the first Vampire Academy book. As far as the rest of the books in each series and if I will continue to read them, The Vampire Academy series I will in between deadline books but the Harry Potter books I don't think I will. Its just once I see a movie and not read the book I can't go back to the books. - Yara
  • I use to read Twilight fan fiction all the time before becoming a book blogger. I would read them from my phone at ALL TIMES. It was my guilty pleasure. - Yara
  • Audio books are so hard for me to finish. Not because they are bad, its just I don't find the time to listen to them. I only have a chance to listen when I drive to book signings since they are far or long road trips other than that, I don't really have any other time to listen.- Yara
  • I don't leave comments on blogs like I use to when I first started blogging. I just don't have the time to visit 100+ blogs a day. If I can leave 10 comments in a day, its a lot. Its not that I don't want to, its just I don't have the time. - Yara
  • I've been a book blogger for over 2 years and still don't have a clue about HTML or all that coding that blog post take. I have to hound friends or my blog designer ALL the time for help. It just doesn't stick inside my head when I do something. - Yara 
  • I take being a book blogger to seriously lately and I am afraid that one day I will just wake up and say to hell with all of it. I need to learn to enjoy it more, like I used to in the beginning. - Yara
Lisa and Deitre's Confessions:
  • I read in the tub. - Lisa
  • I read at my desk at work when I'm not supposed to (if its not busy). - Lisa
  • I listen to the same audiobooks over and over. - Lisa
  • If the narrator of a book has an annoying voice, no matter how good the book is, I just can't listen to it. - Lisa
  • I hated reading when I was younger. - Lisa
  • If I don't have a book to read at all times, I go through painful withdraws. - Lisa
  • I really hated audiobooks when I was younger. I thought they were for old people. - Lisa
  • I once told my parents I lost a library book so they would pay the fine and I could keep it. -  Lisa
  • Anything! You dog ear, you hated a book but said you loved it, you have $500 library fines...anything goes! - Deitre


  1. I'm still trying to figure out the logistics of reading in the shower! lol

  2. I read in the bath but wouldn't be able to read in the shower ... must be a good book to do that!

    I have a few audiobooks I could listen to over and over again, too. :)

  3. I can't watch a movie & then go read the book either!
