I'm a Book Worm

I'm not gonna lie, I love to read.  I always have.  So when I saw this link-up for literary junkies, I knew it was a link-up for me!  I got the three questions off By The Porchlight, so here we go.
By the Porchlight

1) What book are you currently reading? Give us a little synopsis and your review.
Don't laugh. I'm reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone right now.  An oldie but a goodie!  I was given all seven Harry Potter books for my e-reader and thought it would be some nice easy reading that I would really enjoy!  And I am really enjoying it.  You want a synopsis?  It's about a boy, who finds out he's a wizard, goes to wizard school and is part of the three best friends that anyone could have.  It's fantastic!

2) What are your 3 favourite books of all time?
This is a tough question.  I've read a lot of books in my day.  Sometimes it's hard to narrow down when you have favourite authors.  I love Nicholas Sparks.  My favourite book of his might be Safe Haven, and I'm so excited for that movie!  Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin is also probably up there.  And then I'm going to go with The Giver by Lois Lowry, because if you can read a book that many times, you know it's good!  I'm sure there are books I've liked more than those, but I just can't think of them right now.  I've been more of a fluff reader lately.  I just want to read a book that's easy to read.  I don't have time to get into books that are too deep I guess.

3) What is your "approach" upon entering a bookstore? Where do you immediately head after entering through the front door?
I'm a cheap accountant, so buying books is hard for me, because I usually read them pretty fast. If I go into a book store, I usually know what I'm looking for.  If I don't, I would go to the tables in the middle that have Heather's Picks (I think she owns the joint, or is the president or something).  Heather always knows what's good.

And I just ran out of photo storage.  See above where I said I'm a cheap accountant?  I need to figure out how to fix this problem without spending money.  Otherwise, blogger out.  (Just kidding, maybe.)


  1. Thanks so much for linking up! This is great! :)

  2. I loved Something Borrowed and her follow-up Something Blue by Emily Giffin. And I hear ya on the being cheap part when buying books. I read way too fast to justify paying full price for a book. I like Half Price Books online store, sometimes you can get books for a penny plus shipping. My kind of pricing! ;) Thanks so much for linking up!!

  3. I'm not really a love novel/movie type chick until it comes to Nicholas Sparks. Safe Haven was probably my favorite one of his books as well and I was definetely excited when I saw the movie preview.

    I've heard The Giver is good so maybe I'll give that one a try :)
