Tag | Guilty Reader Book Tag

Welcome one, welcome all, to yet another Tag Thursday! Every Thursday (disclaimer: when I remember), I like to post a fun little tag post to mix things up a bit. This week’s tag is courtesy (once again) of the lovely ladies at Thrice Read and it’s called the Guilty Reader Book Tag. (I’m not sure of the originator of the tag but if you know please do let me know because I’d like to credit them!) Let’s not waste any more time since life if short (and I have a tonne of posts to try to write and schedule before I leave for the US this weekend), let’s dive right on into the tag.

The Questions

 

1. Have You Ever Regifted A Book That You’ve Been Given?

Nope! Probably because very few people gift me books in the first place – they tend to give me Waterstones vouchers or money to spend on Amazon – so I have very little occasions to then regift to someone else.

2. Have you ever said you’ve read a book when you haven’t?

I may have not entirely read a book I did my undergraduate dissertation on but, in my defence, it was Les Misérables by Victor Hugo and it is bloody long so I read the sections I needed to use for my argument and then skipped over the rest. One day, I will read it cover-to-cover though, I’m determined, and after I’ve finally finished War and Peace no book will ever seem quite as daunting – one day, I will!

3. Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it?

Accidentally, yes. I borrowed a copy of The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis from a friend at school who now doesn’t live in the area we grew up in, and neither do I for that matter. Next time I see her I will try to give it back but I’m very unlikely to remember it – yikes, I’m a bad book borrower!
