Top Ten Bookish Confessions

Hey, it’s my first time to join this feature!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature from The Book and The Bookish.

This week’s Top Ten: Confession from every bookaholic out there. πŸ™‚ Here we go!

  1. 2nd half of last year, my average monthly spend on books is PhP5,000 (roughly US$100++).
  2. Books over Anything. Ask any of my officemates. There’s a bunch of times nows that I have no money left for transpo going home, save an MRT card (train prepaid card). So i borrow money from them so I can get home. Ha!
  3. I literally stalked our local bookstores to see whether they shelved 50 Shades of Grey under the Teen Section. I saw it. Twice. I posted on that local bookstore’s FB page to remove them. weeks later, they are re-shelved.
  4. This happened to me 3 times. I bought the 1st book on the series, brought it home, read it overnight, then bought the next book the next day. Again, i read it overnight, then bought the next installment. until I reach the last book. First time is with the Twilight Saga (yeah, don’t ask), then Percy Jackson series, then The Mortal Instruments series (books 1-3).
  5. I buy books then stash them in the office. Come Friday, i bring it home. When hubby asks, i always tell him i all bought the books on sale. πŸ™‚
  6. I read Colliers Encyclopedia volumes 1-24 when i was young. I favored reading about the different countries and their capitals.
  7. I always, always finish a book no matter how worse it is.
  8. I used toΒ not cover my hardbound books. Thanks to Tina, I now put a plastic cover to all of them.
  9. IΒ love Erotica reads, though i haven’t read as much as i want (blame it on YA). Pleasure in words? So sexy!
  10. I rarely post something personal here in my blog. They say whatever you share in the net, it’s out there forever. Yeah, i’m paranoid like that.

  1. I love that you got 50 Shades reshelved! Good job there!! πŸ™‚ That really, really makes me happy actually. I haven’t read it personally, but I know just from what I hear about it that it’s certainly not a teen book! Especially if it’s shelved there, that implies good for younger teens too. No way!
    Love your confessions! Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

  2. How would ANYONE think 50 shades is a YA book? Man… Where I live that would cause picketing, uproars, etc. I also read series like that… the first time (yes, first time) I read Twilight I finished it about 11:00 at night and had to tell myself that no, I couldn’t go to the book store to buy New Moon! Glad I’m not the only one who does that! πŸ™‚

    • oh, thank goodness you had the same experience! it even came to a point that i wait for the mall to open at 10am just so i can buy the next book ASAP. haha! Thank you, Candice πŸ™‚

  3. Great confessions! I read the Twilight saga back to back as well, and how surprising that you’ve seen 50 shades shelved with YA! I feel book buying shame too sometimes like your #5- it’s easier to hide when they’re e-books πŸ™‚
    I can totally relate to #7 too. I have to finish what I started.
    Glad to see you joined TTT!

  4. I think I spend 2k each month over books… and that’s just online. Yay! I’m not alone. :))

    At first glance of the cover of 50 Shades, I kind of thought it was a YA book too (like the girl from the book discussion we went to) and the fact that most of the YA blogs that I follow (yes, that includes you) are reading it, so I hold you responsible for the misconception! lol Just Kidding.

    I did the same thing with Twilight too. Is it weird that I’m suddenly ashamed over gushing over it? I guess I really did outgrow that series. Hahaha!

  5. I totally agree with books over anything and everything. I’m constantly having to attempt to restrain myself from buying them instead of things that I supposedly need more. I want to spend all my money on getting the most awesome new, and old, reads available.

    • yeah! whether old or new books, as long as it’s on my TBR list, i buy it. my dad says i can’t eat my books. thank goodness for that! Else, i’ll be to gorged up to even go to work. LOL thanks Ash!

  6. Love your confessions. I actually don’t want to work out how much I spend on books! And I agree on the whole finishing books thing – I HAVE to finish!!
