Super Bookworm

I know, reading doesn't keep up with the image of a superhero but i do love to bury my head in a book most of the time. I'm big on bargain book hunting and my novels keep piling up cause I keep on buying and collecting even if i still have a lot of unread ones stacked on my small shelf. I'm sure most booklovers can relate. So now, I sell some of them in my multiply site. (The website is still in the works, my apologies)
Anyway, here's a TAG I copied and posted. I hope readers out there would participate and share their favorites, too.

Some of my friends say , I read too much. I don't care. Reading takes me to other worlds and makes me learn about cultures and histories that are foreign to me. I'm not the type though who'd  post quotes from a book in their statuses or blogs. When reading, I try to understand the author's style and overall beauty and impact of the novel. Based on impact, my favorites are Atonement, The Kiterunner and The Da Vinci Code.

My Big Mistake

Anyways, I guess the biggest mistake I did because of reading was when my friends came over at my house and I didn't get out of my bedroom because I was so engrossed with a book. They didn't come over anymore after that. We're still friends but I guess they were offended because I ditched them for a book.  Heck, I cant even remember the name of the book or it's story. It's now that I realized that that was really wrong and stupid. Lesson learned. 

Okay, now, it's your turn to share about the books you love, too. Am I a record holder with my total of 30 ?

woah....was a bookworm in high school until the fiction ones got substituted by nursing books..since then....'ve been deprived of reading fiction...started some but left them rotten on book shelves...but want to start reading fictions again...ang style ko rin magbasa eh napakabagal haha...would also invest on Christian inspirational books...they're worth reading too ! ^^ naalala ko tuloy na andami ko ring books na display lang sa kwarto ko sa ozamiz hehe...

kcatwoman said...

ah ganun ba. grabe parusa ang mga nursing books! haha. pero since wala akong masyadong ginagawa ngayon, puro basa na lang ang ginagawa ko. see you around!

beng said...

dami mo ng nabasang books sis, nung Highschool ako mahilig akong magbasa ng fiction books, novels, mga ganun, pero bilang lang naman ang natapos kong basahin dun.. i know that feeling na sobrang hooked ka na sa binabasa mo, na parang ayaw mo ng matulog para malaman mo lang yung mangyayari.. hehe..

ngayon kasi pumalit na ang blogging idagdag mo pa yung mga online games. kaya di na din nakakapagbasa. lol.

thanks for dropping by my site pala. :)

Sendo said...

oo sobrang parusa nga....pero me dalawang buwan ako mag fiction books bago ako muling magpista ng nursing books hehe

kcatwoman said...

hi beng. i love blogging ang online games din. so parehas pala tayo in some ways. pag nagsawa sa pagbabasa, blog naman, drowing or gaming :)

sendo: happy reading!
