This or That Thursday: Challenge #99 Music

Every week the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link.

THIS WEEK IS:Do you ever listen to music while you read?

I basically need to listen to music to read, write, do anything really. I can’t concentrate well with silence. I am pretty specific about the music type though; I can’t just listen to anything, it needs to have a kind of folksy and relaxing vibe, nothing, poppy or that has lyrics that are really going to distract me.

My go to music is the Lumineers Pandora. Or lately it’s been a lot of Ed Sheeran. Eventually it all kind of fades out and I don’t even realize it’s playing anymore. Like sometimes the Pandora station will pause and I don’t even notice.

This or That Thursday: Challenge #97 Face-down

Every week the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link.

THIS WEEK IS:How do you feel about laying books open, face down?

I would never do it for like an extended period of time, but  it doesn’t gravely bother me or anything. I sometimes just do it to hold my place real quick. I try to avoid it when it comes to paperbacks, because their spines break easier and that truly does bother me—mainly because they don’t look as good when the spine’s broken.

This or That Thursdays: Challenge #96 Reading Goals

Every week the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link.

THIS WEEK IS:How many books have you read so far in 2017?

I’ve so far read ninety books and am twenty-nine books ahead of my reading schedule to read a hundred and twenty-five books. And I also sometimes forget to log books on Goodreads—especailly NA books I read super quickly—so I’m actually probably a little bit farther ahead than that.

This or That Thursday: Challenge #95

Every week the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link.

THIS WEEK IS: How long has it been since you last bought a book?

I bought some books eleven days ago. It was a big haul too, a total of nineteen books. BookOutlet is just addictive.

I normally limit myself to one haul per month or every other month from BookOutlet, never usually that large either. I don’t really get my books anywhere else unless it’s like a new release then I’ll order it on Amazon. 

I’m trying to chill on the book buying because I have a lot of unread ones left on my shelf.

This or That Thursday: Challenge #94 TBR

Every week the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link.

THIS WEEK IS: Do you have a TBR list? If so, tell me about it: Is it written or typed? Do you use Goodreads? How long is the list? How many books are on it? etc.

I definitely have a TBR. There is no physical list or anything like that though. I mostly go off my Goodreads or my shelves, like the books I have there that I haven’t read. I can’t tell you how many books is on that list, it’s pretty long and ever growing.

This or That Thursday: Challenge #93 Typos

Every week the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link.

THIS WEEK IS: Have you ever found a typo (or typos) in books?

Honestly no. I don’t feel like this should be super surprising though, books go through lots of people and lots of edits before they are finished and printed. I think maybe the only place I would possibly find a typo is a galley/unfinished copy or maybe a book from a self-published author. Continue reading
