Hey Everyone! Today I'm participating in the Book Bloggers Love-a-thon hosted by Alexa from Alexa Loves Books and Katelyn from Kate's Tales of Books and Bands. And today I got to interview a different Caitlyn from Caitlyn Reads who is a fairly new blogger. So check out my blog post about Books and Blogging with Caitlyn.
What is your biggest reading pet peeve?I only have a few reading related pet peeves, but the ones I do have are ones that really, REALLY bother me. Not giving a book a shot is one of them. And I don't mean not finishing a book because it's bad (I do that). I mean not finishing a book simply because you're too lazy. I know people who do this ALL THE TIME, and it drives me insane. And then they claim, after reading only the first two pages or so, that the book is too boring. HA! No. Sorry, I don't think it's the book that's at fault here.
And then, to make it worse, those same people have the nerve to ask me for book reccomendations or to borrow one of my books after they dissed some of my favorite books.
What made you want to start blogging?I love talking about books (I could go on FOREVER), but I needed someone to talk to, so I decided to create a book blog, where I could share my obsessi--I mean, hobby.
When did you discover your love of reading?I didn't love reading until around fourth or fifth grade, when I first read Harry Potter. Before that, I wasn't a fan of reading, so Harry Potter pretty much changed my life for the better.
What is one element in a book that drives you crazy?I'll fly with almost anything, as long as the author makes it believable. I could even be fine with instalove, as long as the author finds a way to make the romance convincing. (But that's hardly ever the case. There's only one time I remember not being bugged by instalove, and that's because the author provided an explanation for it.)
Do you re-read books?
I wish I had time to re-read books, but there are just so many which I haven't read yet. There's a zillion books coming out, and I have a bazillion books to catch up on. (The ba- totally makes it worth more than just the 'zillion'.)
Hardcover or Paperback?
Paperbacks are lighter, and therefore easier to read, but I like hardcover better because it looks nicer, and it's not as fragile.
Ebook or Physical Copy?
I like that ebooks are cheaper, but I prefer physical books because I can have them displayed on my shelf, and I think having to read from electronics is a bit annoying.
