Top Ten Bookish Confessions

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.
This week's topic:  Top Ten Bookish Confessions
I don't really have any confessions.  Most of the 'confessions' on my list are more like bookish idiosyncracies.
1.) I always return library books on time.-I know this doesn't sound like a confession but I am kind of crazy about making sure I turn them in on time.  I will go way out of my way to make sure that they aren't late.
2.) I don't like Sarah Dessen's books.-I'm sorry, I tried but I just don't get the appeal.  I always feel bad because so many bloggers love Dessen's books.
3.) I can't read more than one book at a time.-It stresses me out!
4.) I HATE dust jackets.-They look pretty on the shelf but I they really get on my nerves.  I have to take them off before I read a book.
5.) I do judge a book by its cover.-Sometimes I can't help it!
6.) There have been a few times where I have taken a long lunch just to finish a book.-Shh!  Don't tell my boss.
7.) Sometimes I would rather read a book than be around actual people.-Sad to say but so true.
8.) I don't like to dog ear pages but I'll do it in a pinch.-I try to find something to use as a book mark (sticky notes, receipts, etc) but sometimes I just have to dog ear a page.
9.) I judge peoples' reading preferences.-Usually I am just happy that people read no matter what genre they prefer.  However there have been times where I have seen people bad mouth a book I love and if they only read chick lit, for example, I tend to give them the side eye.

That's all I can think of right now.  What are some of your bookish confessions? 


  1. Similar to your number two, I don't like Susane Colasanti books. I've only read one, but I wasn't thrilled with it. I don't know if I will read anything else by her.

    Sometimes I would rather read a book than be around actual people, too.

  2. I'm wondering if Sarah Dessen is becoming passe. She was so popular in my library a few years back and girls would read every single one of her books and pine for more. Now I don't think I have any of her fans left and just a few girls who stumble upon her books. I've read two of her books and didn't find them that compelling either.

  3. Psst.... me too *confession number 2 cough* But Im always too afraid to say it out loud.

    4 and 8 are also true for me as well. And I've never taken a long lunch, but I've stayed up until 5 am to finish a book despite having work the next day! :S

    Here are my bookish confessions!

  4. I hate dust jackets too yet I was still annoyed when someone lost my dust jacket for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

  5. I too, can't read more than one book at a time.

    I also love gorgeous covers!

  6. I can read more than one book at a time.

    I also judge books by their cover.

    Thanks for stopping my Top Ten.
