Is it truly Monday?
Please don’t tell me I’m the only person who forget Easter is this week. I completely forgot about it. Okay, I don’t celebrate it. And sure, I get a four-day weekend, but it slipped my mind. 😅 Oops.
I found this tag on Bibliophagist. I cannot stop recommending this blog. Sara is on the top of my blogger list. I love her. So head over to her blog to see what she’s posted lately. Have fun!
What Is the Longest Amount of Time You Can Comfortably Go without Picking Up a Book?

How Many Books Do You Carry on Your Person (or Kindle) at Any One Time?
I don’t like wasting time waiting for an appointment. So I’ll take one or two books if I’m almost finished the first. But I worry about damaging my books, so I don’t always bring one. And I rarely bring my Kobo. It’s too bloody expensive to lose.
Do You Keep Every Book You Buy/Receive or Are You Happy to Pass Them on to Make Space for More?
I’ve kept 99 percent of all my books, but I’m looking to free up some room so my books aren’t stacking up everywhere. I swear I need another room for my library.

Well over 200 physical copies. I don’t own a lot of ebooks though. I prefer the connection you get while holding a book. I wish I had more room for all my copies.
Approximately How Often Do You Bring Up Books in Conversation?
Today, I brought them up at least three times. But I can easily go days without discussing them with my friends or family. Now with work, I talk about them constantly.
What Is the Biggest Book (Page Count) You Have Finished Reading?
I believe Voyager in the Outlander series may be the longest book I’ve ever finished. I still need to read Kingdom of Ash and the Queen of Air and Darkness.
Is There a Book You Had to Get Your Hands on Against All Odds (i.e., Searching Bookshops, Online Digging, Etc)?
Maybe the Aurora Rising might be the first book in a while where I wanted to find the right copy.
A Book You Struggled to Finish but Refused to DNF?

What Are Three of Your Main Book Goals for 2019?

Have You Ever Had the Privilege of Converting Someone into a Reader (Maybe via Inspiration or Incessant Nagging)?
No. I’ve taught my Mom the basics of reading and helped her understand difficult words. But I haven’t converted people into a reader. Contrary to what people believe, it takes a certain person to love it, and you cannot force it onto anyone.

The calm in my storm.
