My Bookish Quirks
You should already know by now that I love books and reading, but what you don't know is that I'm a little bit quirky about both of those things.
Today I'm going to share my bookish quirks with you:
1. I can only stop reading at the end of the page and that page has to end with a full stop. The thought of stopping halfway down the page, or even at the end of a page mid-sentence, makes me cringe - I just couldn't do it.
2. My bookshelves have to be in alphabetical order according to the author's surname, it makes it so much easier for me to find the books I'm looking for.
3. I can't start a new book until I've finished the one I'm reading. I know lots of people who have two or more books on the go at the same time but I just couldn't do that. I like to become completely absorbed in whichever world my current book has taken me to and, for me, that can only be achieved if I concentrate on one book at a time.
4. I always use a bookmark, I could never ever fold the corner of a page to mark where I'm up to in the book. It might sound a bit dramatic but whenever I discover a previously folded corner (usually when I've borrowed one of my mum's books because she's a serial page-folder) my heart breaks a little.
5. Speaking of bookmarks, I'm quite particular with those too! I keep them in a pile and put the one I've just used at the bottom of the pile and take the top bookmark for my next read. Each one is important to me for different reasons so alternating them like this means I get to use all of them.
The two bookmarks on the right were handmade for me by T and N so they're extra special.
Do you share any of my bookish quirks or do you have any of your own to add? I'd love to hear about them.
