Have you succumbed to the world of e-readers, storing your neatly organised bookshelves all inside one slim, attractive electronic device? Or do you, like me, still crave the feeling of holding a real book in your hands, turning real pages, and smelling real paper?
If you're like me...
Important Book Question #1
Where do you keep all these books, and how do you arrange them?
Because storage can become a serious problem! Every now and then I have to shunt a boxload of books off the shelf and into the storeroom outside...
When I was little I arranged my books by height. That was a little weird. Now that I'm slightly less weird I arrange my books by Importance. Books I read less often get moved higher (where I have to stand on a chair to reach them), and my favourite favourites remain at eye level :-)
Important Book Question #2
Do you use a bookmark or bend over the corner of the page?
Personally, I would chop off my own finger before bending the corner of page. Okay, perhaps that's a little severe... But seriously! Bending the page is like some kind of book sin!
Important Book Question #3
Do you ever eat while reading?
Come on. CHOCOLATE + BOOKS. What could be better?!
