Today’s post is something I saw while reading the Cole Family’s Welcome to Our Campfire blog. While I wasn’t tagged to do this post, it is always nice to participate in a tag that is going to show my readers just how dedicated I am to reading.

What is the longest amount of time you can comfortably go without picking up a book?
While I’ve never timed myself to see how long I can comfortably go without picking up a book, I tend to read every single day for at least an hour, so I would therefore say no longer than 24 hours.
How many books do you carry on your person or Ebook at any one time?
I carry one physical book on my person at any given time. I am new to the Ebook format and therefore think it shouldn’t count.
Do you keep every book you buy/receive or are you happy to pass them on to make more space?
I do not keep every book I buy/receive. If I didn’t like the book, or its been on my shelf and holds no further interest to me I tend to pass them on to make more space for books I love or have interest for.
How long do you spend in a bookstore on a typical visit?
If my fiance is with me I know exactly which book I am looking for and am in and out in no more than 30 minutes. If it is a Tuesday and I decide to drive to the bookstore on my own to check out the new releases, I can stay there for a good hour, hour and a half.
How much time each day do you spend reading?
I try to spend at least one hour each day between the pages of a book.
How many books would you estimate that you own (including Ebooks)?
Before my fiance and I moved apartments I used Libib and scanned 445 books on my various shelves.
How often do you bring books up in conversation?
I tend to talk with people about things that they are interested in or things that we share interest in. If I know that particular person shares a love of books, you can guarantee that it is brought up more often than someone who has no interest in books.
What is the longest book you’ve finished reading?
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter #5). This book is 766 pages, which is impressive for a 12-year-old.
What is a book you struggled to finish but didn’t DNF?
Dinner with a Vampire (The Dark Heroine #1) by Abigail Gibbs. I had a lot of issues with this book but a co-worker gave it to me so we could have a book in common to talk about so I made sure that I held up my end of the bargain.

What are your three main book goals for 2018?
- Read books that have a more diverse cast of characters
- Read at least one classic
- Read for myself and not for my Goodreads goal
Have you ever had the privilege of converting someone into a reader?
I mean, all my friends and family are readers in some regards, so I would say I have had the privilege of turning their attention to specific books, but no, not converting someone into a reader.
Describe what books mean to you in five words.
Adventure, Escape, Fantasy, Imagination, and Relaxing.
