Reader Confessions || All Readers Have Them

My Reader ConfessionsI told RiverMooseBooks I would share my writer confessions, but I haven’t written enough book related posts lately. So, here are my reader confessions instead.

  1. Sometimes, I read the last page first.
  2. I DNF about as many books as I finish.
  3. I used to hate reading.
  4. I’ve only read one contemporary book this year. (Hoping to change this soon.)
  5. I would never be able to read anywhere near the number of books that I do without audio books.

What are your reader confessions? Should I do my writer confessionsΒ next? Should I write more short posts like this in the future or do you prefer long, thought out posts?Β

    • If I may butt in here πŸ˜€ I also think it’s terrible, I wouldn’t do this to myself πŸ˜€ but listen to this story! I once found a book, an old book, in my grandma’s shelf. It’s a good book and I do recommend it (Valley of the Moon, Jack London), but it was a little torn up, so I just sort of flipped through it to see if any pages were missing. And lo and behold… the last page was torn in half πŸ˜€ and I was like but but but… there’s text missing!! Do I start a big fat book knowing there’s no last page? πŸ˜€ in the end I just googled the last page xD but I would say that’s probably one of the rare occurrences when I’ve looked at the last page πŸ˜€

      • Great story, Evelina!

        I should get around to reading some of Jack London’s books, but I don’t know if I could have started reading knowing the last page wasn’t there. Googling it sounds like a great strategy though!

    • Not DNFing is a legitimate strategy too. I just don’t have the patience πŸ˜‰

      It seems you aren’t the only one who finds reading the last page first unimaginable πŸ™‚

      Yes, audiobooks are great! I wish they were more accessible in terms of cost because they’re such a good alternative.

  1. I am a bit different when it comes to DNF-ing books… I rarely DNF anything ahah. I always have hope that it will get better and better ahah πŸ™‚
    I… well, sometimes I read the last page of a book before starting a book, but it’s more by mistake than by actual need to read it beforehand haha. I always love reading the acknowledgments before and they’re always at the end ahha.
    Great post!! πŸ˜€

    • Yeah, not DNFing seems to be common among book reviewers… This probably explains why I’m so behind on my reviews πŸ™‚

      Yeah, that’s why I do it sometimes to. Acknowledgements can be interesting no matter what all those people who skip them think also glossaries. How will I know if there is a glossary without looking at the back of the book? πŸ˜‰
