Follow Friday (#3)

Follow Friday is a fun way for bloggers to find new blogger friends!  It's hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee's View, and it's such an awesome idea! 

And the Feature blog this week is....
Confessions of a Page Turner”=
And the question this week is...
"Give Us Five Book Related Facts Silly Facts About You."
Hmm, silly book related facts... Well...
  1. I hate cracks in spines - and I mean hate.  I only open books as far as I need to, no further, to spare my poor books.
  2. For some reason or another, I started to put slips of paper with notes I needed for various tasks into the chapters of my books.  I knew that if they were in my book I'd always be ready because my books go everywhere with me.  The habit has stuck, and along with notes I now have plain scraps of paper in the chapters, just in case I need to remember something.  It also helps me see how long the chapter is.  I call it my Quirk.
  3. I like to read a YA/adult/modern book and a classic at all times, to balance everything out, or at least a classic every couple of books.  It started because when I was younger I'd buy my teen books, and my parents bought me the odd classic.  They saw them as educational, and didn't think I should have to pay to learn.  I was more than happy to agree! ;)  Now I have my kindle, and so I read a classic on there, which is cool, easy and they're free!  I also love to read more than one book at a time, say two YA paperbacks, a classic and maybe a YA on my kindle.  I love having the option of jumping between books when one gets too scary/sad/boring. 
  4.  I buy waay too many books: my TBR pile is 100 odd books - and that isn't counting the ones on my kindle.  I'm fairly certain I'm a CBB: Complusive Book Buyer!
  5. All my books are arranged in alphabetical order by the author's name, and I want to put them into genres, and then into alphabetical order again!  If I could, I'd have a whole room as a mini library, and have all the different genres on their own bookshelves!  At the moment, my books are just spilling of my bookcase onto windowsills, my bedroom floor and are piled on top of the case as well.  Very precarious!
Well, that's a little about me, and my rather insane, obsessive habits and a few facts thrown in.

If you found my through FF, leave your link so I can follow you back, and if you aren't participating in it, why not leave a few book-related facts about you anyway?

Have a great weekend all!

Hey, new follower here! Good answers. I'm a strange one, I feel a weird sense of achievement when I crack the spine of a book (not if it's not mine of course). Happy Hopping!

Just swinging through on the blog hop. I enjoyed reading your answers to the #5 Things question. I hope you have a great weekend!

Holy Book Lover! I am amazed at your putting all your books in alphabetical order and your ambition to put them in by genre! Can you swing by my house, LOL!

How are you liking the Hunger Games? It's my favorite series. I hope you enjoy them!
I read them twice!

Thanks so much for stopping by my site! I love the freebies on Kindle! Some of them got me started on some great series. I started the Soul Screamer series because I got the first book free and a few others that I can't think of right now!

I'm glad we met! Have a Great Weekend!

Hopping through. I hate cracks in spines too. I'm very careful with my books.

Hopping back :)...I hate when you are buying books at the bookstore and their spines are already cracked, that's the worst!

I always forget to answer the questions on the Follow Friday post ;) I see that you are reading the Hunger Games. I loved that book!

I have the most ridiculous amount of books that I haven't read either; physically on my shelves and on my Nook! New follower, hopping through. Thanks for sharing.

Here's mine!
