The Reader in Me

I intend to keep this post short because I just received some devastating news and it has totally put me off. However, I made myself a promise that I won’t skip a day in September, so here is the customary Monday post, the last for the September Reading Month.

  1. Hope everything is OK.
    I do not own a Kindle too, though my son had presented one to the family one Christmas. Gathering dust somewhere. I still like physical books.

    I had left the stage of #4 in your list long time back but do remember vividly the days ( sorry, nights)reading with a flashlight under the quilt ( hiding from my elder brother with whom I used to share a room).

  2. This is a cool post. I agree with number 12. I think I’ve given a book or two a two-star rating before, but I always feel bad. It’s only my opinion whereas there are plenty of people who may disagree with me.
    Also, I hope everything is okay on your end or it gets better soon.

  3. #4 has happened to me a few times. I’m also like you on #s 5 through 9 and 11. πŸ˜‰ As for where I read… I can read just about anywhere, but my favorite place at home is the “comfy chair” in my bedroom.

    On a separate note, I hope everything is going OK. *hugs*

  4. I don’t have a Kindle, but a Barners & Noble Nook, but I hardly read on there. Physical books are SO much better, Books are always better than movies!!!! I’m 4 books behind schedule on Goodreads but I’m hoping to catch-up soon πŸ™‚
