Questions 41-55 About Books and Reading

So we’ve reached the final set of questions. I think you’ll know just about all there is to know about me and books and reading once we finish this last bunch. But if you need to catch up, here are the links to the previous posts with the questions leading up to today’s post.

Monday.

Tuesday.

Wednesday.

Thursday.

All caught up? Perfect. Let’s see what else I have for you all. Fair warning, this is a little lengthy. As in my longest post I’ve written. But it’s okay. There are some great questions toward the end!

41. The longest you’ve gone without reading

Well I didn’t hardly read at all during middle or high school. I mean, those are like full time jobs. Where could I find the time? So I’ll just say I’m sure somewhere along the line I made it a full year without reading a book from start to finish that wasn’t assigned reading.

42. Name a book that you did not finish

Well up until very recently my list of DNFs was quite small. But then I just started reading some books I didn’t like. I’ll just mention the most recent one. A Wrinkle in Time. And it’s so short, but I hated it from page one.

43. What distracts you when you’re reading?

Everything. I’m almost always in silence when I read. Occasionally I’ll read with the TV on mute.

44. Favorite film adaptation of a novel

This is tough. I think I’ll have to declare a three-way tie. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. But the only thing is that I haven’t actually made it that far into the world of Harry. Those two are based solely off the movies because I think they were great. I’ve obviously read Catching Fire and saw the movie on release day and thought it was true to the book and better than the first.

45. Most disappointing film adaptation

The Great Gatsby (2013). When you see that cast you expect a pretty damn good movie to result, and it didn’t. I had this on my DVR for months and I finally started watching it a few weeks ago. To say that I was wildly disappointed would be an understatement. I just didn’t understand the crap music in the movie. And it won a freaking Oscar for it! Just didn’t like the final product that was adapting a great, great book.

46. The most money you’ve ever spent in the bookstore at one time

I’ve never been one to buy a bunch of books at once. It’s expensive. And you all know I only read one book at a time. I’ve spent maybe $35 on Amazon at one time. And I think when my local Borders store was closing down I may have spent between $20-$30. I’ll never spend more than that at any one time. Makes no sense. I’m sorry I’m not rich like you.

47. How often do you skim a book before reading it?

Never. I read mostly series. And when I finish one I don’t even see what the next is about before buying it. I’ll literally read the back cover text of the book seconds before I start reading the book. I have no idea what the book is about until I’m ready to read it through. Just how I am. Skimming a book seems like stealing to me. Why not just go to Barnes and Noble everyday for a week and finish the whole book there? That’s what skimming is like to me.

48. What would cause you to stop reading a book halfway through?

The story. The main character. The writing. Any number of things. One of the most recent books I stopped halfway through was because the author wrote entire chapters of description. These were like 25 page chapters of nothing but description. not only was that boring, but holy crap it was annoying. Give me some dialogue or action or something!

49. Do you like to keep your books organized?

Whaa? I love books. More than non-book blogging people can possibly understand. You know how we randomly play out crazy “what-if” scenarios our heads to see if we’ll know how we’d react? Well I do that all the time. And very recently I thought of a house fire and what I might do. Guess what I came up with rather quickly? I’d break the window in my room by throwing my night stand out and then I’d grab one of those super heavy duty trash bags and just start throwing all my books in there as fast as possible. I think they’d all fit without ripping the bag. Then I’d throw them through the window and see what else is happening in the house. So yes, I keep my books organized because they’re my most prized possessions. Sure I have one on my bed and a few on my desk, but my shelves are perfect.

50. Do you prefer to keep books or give them away after reading them?

Reread my answer to the previous question. Do you honestly think I would give away books if I’m over here talking about breaking windows and inhaling smoke just to save my books? No. Matter of fact, hell no. I will never give away any book I own. Even the ones I don’t like. And it really ticks me off to see that some people are willing to give away boxes and boxes of them. If there ever came a time in which I didn’t have enough room to keep all of my book, then I would throw away unnecessary furniture or I’d have them in storage or in the garage if it was climate controlled. I don’t care what you say, there will never be a valid reason for me to give away any one of my books. And when I’m older and dying I’ll probably leave them to someone in my family who vows not to ever give them away, in writing. If no one like that can be found, then I’d donate them to a library or charity. They’ll never just be given away. Rather serious answer there.

51. Are there any books you’ve been avoiding?

Avoiding isn’t the correct term. There is only one type of book that I’ll never read. Erotica. Cause no. Even though there are several books I’m not interested in reading like Twilight, I would read those four books fifty times before ever reading erotica.

52. Name a book that made you angry

Crap. Plenty of books have made me emotional. But I really can’t think of one that made me angry. Honestly, I don’t get angry but in very specific circumstances. Books don’t fit the bill.

53. A book you didn’t expect to like but did

The Hunger Games. Shocker, right? It wasn’t that I didn’t expect to like it, it was that I had no idea what it was about or why the heck my brother had been telling me over and over to read it. It was one of those rare instances in which I went in with no expectations because we all know my take on recommending books. Just because he liked it didn’t mean I would. But hey, now I’m obsessed with the series and I’ve been introduced to my future wife in Jennifer Lawrence and I’ll likely be getting that mockingjay tattoo I told you all about.

54. A book that you expected to like but didn’t

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I mean, we’ve all seen the first movie. And probably many of you have seen the second. I really thought this would be a great book. Roald Dahl is freaking beloved. But it wasn’t. It was not good at all. Oh well.

55. Favorite guilt-free pleasure reading

Nothing. I read whatever I want. Period.

Yeahhhh! All done! Any thoughts on the last bunch of questions? Or are you just ready for me to get back to my regular posts? Probably choice B. No worries. Monday shall be more normal.

Another kinda funny example is that very rarely do guys come talk to me at the gym. But they always tell my brother about me. Haha I just don’t like people.

      • Yeah, I can agree with that. lol when I first started commenting on your stuff I was thinking ‘man, this guy is either a real jerk or he’s really annoyed with my comments.’ Then after I told you I could shoot a bow and you freaked out about that, I figured you didn’t dislike me… probably. Hopefully….?

      • Hahaha well I apologize about that. But on my normal kind of posts on almost every one I’ll get comments where someone writes a book telling me how stupid my post was and that my opinion is irrelevant blah blah blah. So because that happens I’m REALLY bleh to commenters sometimes. Like I read stuff I don’t like on here but I’m not commenting on them. But now I’m nice cause the bloggers who’d always write those have either unfollowed or just stopped reading. But see! I’m not mean. πŸ™‚ You talk to me everyday. Definitely don’t dislike you or have any kind of negative thoughts. πŸ™‚

        Yeah, I don’t think you’re mean now. I wasn’t sure at the beginning, but I’m pretty good at picking up sarcasm most of the time, so I figured you probably didn’t dislike me. And I could tell by the way you replied to other comments. I’ve seen a few of those comments attacking your post/opinion.

        Like

      Well duhh. There’s always some kind of scar after stitches. I think. But they’re small and you can’t see them since the hair on my chin covers them.

      Oh. Well good thing they’re all okay.

      Geez! You hit your head on the corner of the cabinet when you were already that old!? So then you felt that. Not like doing that stuff as a baby. Are you clumsy?

      Oh! I have another injury story. When I was maybe 3-4 I was riding my bike in the school parking lot down the street from our house and there were other people doing the same. And for some insane reason I rode straight into one of the other kids and again hit my head on the pavement. Ha! It’s a habit! But when I did I just saw blood everywhere and I ran home not knowing why the heck there was so much blood. I actually had two rocks from the ground in my head. But for some reason I didn’t go to the hospital. My dad just plucked them out and that was it. Haha I have a little tiny scar on my head.

      Fastest I’ve driven. Maybe 110. When I was still in school my university was like 30 minutes away, and I used to cruise coming home in the afternoon going like 80-85. I rarely drive on the freeway anymore, so I don’t do that. And don’t tell me anything about speeding. I just said I don’t do it anymore. Haha

      Can you remember the last time you were jealous of someone?

      • Lol well I’ve never had stitches so it wouldn’t know! Haha I haven’t ever cut myself bad enough to need them.

        Lol you and pavement!!! Lol sounds painful! :/ haha and yes I am clumsy. I hit my head two separate times. When I hit it on the cabinet I was probably 7. I was trying to get on the counter in the bathroom and the cabinet above the sink was open and I didn’t realize it. When I passed out and hit my head I was in high school. Maybe 14 or 15.

        Haha well that’s a boy thing… That’s normal to speed like that. Lol

        Hmm… Jealous of someone. I can’t think of anyone in particular, but I’m always envious of people with confidence. Because I wish I was more confident. Lol maybe that’s lame.

      • Good. Never do it. Ever.

        I know! I told you I have bumps all over! I bet if I shaved my head it’s all bumpy and weird looking. Haha. What do you mean when you passed out? Tell me the story.

        Ohhhhhh pleaseeeee! It was mostly a traffic and gym thing. Hush your mouth.

        Why aren’t you more confident? Maybe we haven’t met, but now I know like 5% of all there is to know about you and I think you’re pretty great. So people who are around you like everyday probably think so too. Be confident. You Gabe no reason not to be. 😊 and I think I know more than 5%. Haha

        Like

      • Haha I’m sure a lot of people have bumpy heads. Lol

        Ok, so when I was a teenager I burned myself (not badly by any means). So I went to the kitchen to run cold water over it, right? And a little thing you should know about me is that I go into shock super easily. lol and for stupid random stuff too. So yeah. I’d never passed out from going into shock before, but for some reason I did when I put the cold water on the burn. Our house was built on a slab so there was only concrete under the kitchen linoleum. I was our for several seconds and had a bad concussion. We went to the doctor and they said that if I got sick to my stomach I needed to go to the ER. Well of course the next day I did and we went because they needed to make sure my brain wasn’t bleeding or something?! lol so I had a ct scan and everything was fine. And I got a shot for my nausea. My mom says my memory isn’t what it used to be. But I don’t remember πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ haha!!! I’m funny, right?

        Yeah, well I may be confident when I know someone and I’m comfortable… But I’m always questioning myself. I actually have a lot of self doubt. But I don’t tell people that. You’re probably the first. Lol so feel special. And thanks for the compliment. Haha I’m sure you know me a lot better than some of my friends even do. I know so. Lol besides my best friend. But we share everything. Haha

      • Crap! So does it still happen? Like you going into shock? I’d be scared. That’s a crazy thing. I’m not even allergic to anything and you have that.

        Hmm. Welllll you know how you’re always telling me that I’m interesting and funny or whatever? Same thing, except that’s your opinion and this isn’t. You have no reason not to be confident in yourself. For real. Can I ask you to tell me something that you doubt yourself with?

        I think we’re going to be experts on each other at some point. Haha πŸ˜‚

      • It hasn’t for a long time. But to be honest I think I would possibly go into shock getting a tattoo. Unless I was laying down. Lol it’s dumb I know! Haha if I’m sitting I’m fine usually. And I can watch all kinda of tv shows with blood and guys but I can’t see it in real life or even look at a picture without getting grossed out. I used to watch emergency in the ER all the time!

        I see your point. Lol and I don’t know you in person so I can’t be 100% sure, but from what I can tell you seem funny and interesting. It’s not constant. And it’s not like I’m totally lacking confidence in everything. But sometimes I wonder whether I have what it takes to make something of myself. Maybe that’s dumb, but I don’t know. lol and I have this thing I have to do sometime next week I think. I have to go in front of a committee and talk about why they should pass some fire department levy. I’m sorta freaking out because I am horrible in front of people. Like HORRIBLE. It’s a lot of things really. Little things. But I don’t usually talk about it and just hide behind my quietness πŸ˜‰

        I think we will be. πŸ™‚ haha

        Like

      • Yeah. Please never get a tattoo. Cause I KNOW you’d tell me “hey! Guess what I did!? I went to get a tattoo and then ended up in the hospital.” Or something like that. Then I’d feel horribly. Haha

        I think I’m okay. After you come here then you’ll know. πŸ™‚

        But okay. The only thing I can say is that I’ve definitely experienced what you said about making something of yourself. BUT I’m certain that you have people around you that believe in you. I freaking do! So whenever you doubt yourself about something, you should look at them. Cause they’ll see in you what you don’t. Oh my goodness, look at me over here being great. πŸ˜ƒ

        And for your speaking thing, just practice! And before you actually speak, just imagine that everyone is like checking you out or something silly like that. When I was in school I always told myself they were just admiring my physique and didn’t care what I was saying. It worked. πŸ™‚

        Haha well thanks for your little speech. πŸ™‚ I appreciate it! You’re so wise!! πŸ˜‰ lol and as far as the speaking thing goes, the fire chief is suppose to give me what I’m suppose to say, but I haven’t gotten it yet. Ugh. Lol it’s not going to be a ton of people and it’s only suppose to take 15 or so minutes but still. Drew’s dad thinks I will do great and he thinks I’m a lot smarter than people think I am. I’m not sure, but ok. Haha you’re too funny! The last thing I’m going to be worrying about is my appearance.

        That sounds so much different from what I’d think. I thought all the northern states would only be green like a month or two out of the year. Hm.

        Easy easy. Big t shirt and sweatpants. I wear them everywhere except work. Even when it’s 100 degrees out. I hate hate wearing jeans. They never fit.

        Why would you say that? Eastern Washington is way different. But I live by the coast so everything is green. Eastern WA you’ll find more pine trees and it gets hotter in the summer. It’s definitely more dry there.

        Really? Only sweats I wear in public are my adidas sweats. But not very often. And only if I’m like running to the store really quick. You’re insane though.

      • Well you’re one of the only people who likes talking to me. And no one else likes talking to me everyday. Soooo I’m stuck. πŸ™‚

      • That just makes me sad. Whyyyy??? I mean, I don’t know you in person but you seem like a decent guy.

      • I don’t know! Maybe I’m mean. Or rude. Or I don’t know. Like the only person who used to talk to me everyday is the girl I told you about. And I’m pretty sure she doesn’t want to be friends at all anymore. I asked her if I could put her as a reference on the application since she knows me probably better than anyone else and we’ve known each other like four and a half years and she said no. But I have a friend who is finishing up a mission in Canada at the end of this month and she’s usually really great with me. She’s been gone since last February. At least I have you. Haha
