Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is a freebie, so I decided to list my “Top Ten Bookish Confessions.” I’ve got a lot of them, but I’m still going to stick to the top ten. Or at least the top ten I don’t mind confessing… I think I’ll leave out my family’s fear of borrowing my books, because they think I’ll knee cap them if I don’t get them back. Or how I refuse to let my students read my collection of R. L. Stine and Christopher Pike thrillers I have boxed up in my garage. Despite the fact they’re undoubtedly being eaten by bugs, I’ve owned them most of my life and don’t want anyone else to touch them. LOL! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. So without further ado, here is my “Top Ten Bookish Confessions .”
- I prefer to read with an eReader, despite loving physical books, because I love being able to immediately look up the definitions of words I don’t know.
- If I find a word I don’t know in a physical book, I will write the definition in the margins. If you ever saw my copy of The Road by Cormac McCarthy, you’d probably think I was illiterate.
- I don’t borrow books from the library, because I don’t return them. But I have a library card.
- I often buy books just because they have a gorgeous cover.
- I donated my children’s books to a local elementary school when I left for college.
- I regret donating my Sweet Valley High and Babysitter’s Club books to a local elementary school when I left for college.
- I use my classroom bookshelves to store my YA books I don’t have room for in my house, and don’t mind letting my students read.
- I use the Scholastic book points from my students’ book orders to buy books for myself. Sometimes…Considering how many books I’ve donated, I think we’re even.
- While I like reading on my iPad or Kindle, I hate reading on the computer.
- When I feel like shopping, I’ll chose to buy books before I spend the money on clothes or food.
