Confessions of a Bookworm
Ivana & I will write a post about our most eccentric bookworm confession and Anila from over at Parajunkee will hop blogs and is going to choose who has the most radical and eccentric bookworm confession.
Nell will go first so her confession won’t seem so weird because it’s the last post that always sticks with you the most, right? Pssst….Anila….watch out for Ivana – she’s the weird one.
My most eccentric bookworm confession is that I have this issue with the last book in a series. I won’t read it. You see, if I don’t read the last book in the series, then the series never ends and I always know that I have one more episode to go before it’s the finale. I’ve held on to Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse series that way. I’ve still not read the last book in that series. I’ve been holding my breath since book #3 was released in Skye Knizley’s Storm Chronicles series because I didn’t know if that was going to be the last in the series, but it’s not, so I don’t have to stress. I read Diana Rowland’s Kara Gillian #7 in the series because I trolled the internet until I knew there was going to be a #8. I know. I’m weird.
Eccentric bookworm confession, huh? Lets see… I don’t think sniffing books is that odd among book lovers. Getting annoyed when series covers don’t match? Nah, that has to be pretty common, too. I suppose the one thing I get a lot of flack for is the way–or ways–in which I organize my ebooks. I keep a catalog of all my ebooks in Excel, noting title, author, series, genre, etc. I spent a couple of weeks getting the first draft done and now keep it updated religiously. Then I have to add all my purchases to my Goodreads shelves and mark whether they are ebooks or audiobooks. And, just for giggles, I have to compare the number of books Goodreads says I have to the number of books Amazon says I have to the number of books my Excel spreadsheet says I have… I swear I’m not OCD, it’s just a thing, okay?
