My Teaser:

Ryker“When Gray walked around to my front and raised those green eyes up my way, I felt victorious over the just-barely-there sensual look. It validated what I had been considering.”

-p. 58 Ryker (A Cold Fury Hockey Novel) by Sawyer Bennett

toptentuesdayThis 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 .”

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. I don’t borrow books from the library, because I don’t return them. But I have a library card.
  4. I often buy books just because they have a gorgeous cover.
  5. I donated my children’s books to a local elementary school when I left for college.
  6. I regret donating my Sweet Valley High and Babysitter’s Club books to a local elementary school when I left for college.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. While I like reading on my iPad or Kindle, I hate reading on the computer.
  10. When I feel like shopping, I’ll chose to buy books before I spend the money on clothes or food.

  1. I generally prefer reading on my e-reader too. It’s just easier! You should use your library card to get ebooks from the library. They automatically expire so you don’t have to worry about not returned them on time!

      I know. I was doing that, but all the books I want take forever to get, and then I often would be so busy, they’d expire. Plus, I’m not patient. I want to read instantly. I need to work on that. LOL!

    I do love green eyes . . . 🙂 Great teaser.

    And I enjoyed your top ten list too! My father-in-law pulled one of my books off my shelf during his last visit and started reading it–then he left with it without asking! I was so mad. I couldn’t kick him in the knee caps, but I thought about it. I did get it back fortunately. Anyway, I love reading confessions.

    If it makes you feel better, I don’t borrow books from the library for myself because I already have so many unread books–and yet I keep accumulating unread books. My reasoning is that at least there’s no deadline on those . . . I do check out books for my daughter though.

    Oh, and I hate reading on the computer too. But I definitely prefer e-book reading to paper book reading–but I still can’t resist surrounding myself with paper books, which I have too many of.

      I’ve recently been buying both formats, but I had to stop, because I was spending so much money. Turns out, buying physical books didn’t stop my one-click addiction.
