Bookish Facts About Me

I purchase books much faster than I read them.

You can find me on Goodreads at goodreads.com/charlenezale.

I mostly just use my library card to check out history documentaries.

I'm not too fond of borrowing books. I love adopting books.

Till this day I still feel guilty about not reading enough books during my time in high school.

I've never been in a book club.

I have purchased books solely because they were beautiful and ended up hating the stories.

That said, I am not ashamed of judging books by their cover and illustration.

The book that's had the biggest impact on my life is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

I used to hate e-readers, but I have since evolved. I find them to be useful, portable, and convenient.

I still prefer physical books over e-books.

I do annotate.

I regret not having read certain books during my childhood. Little Women, Nancy Drew, etc.

I have vivid memories of going to Scholastic book fairs while I was in elementary school.

I also have memories of roaming Borders and Barnes & Noble as a child: touching books, sniffing pages.

My favorite children's book series before Harry Potter were Goosebumps and Baby-Sitters Club.

I try my best to avoid abridged classics unless they were translated from another language.

I can still pull up an image in my mind of all the libraries at every school I have physically attended.

I felt embarrassed that I owned the Twilight books, so I donated them to my local library a few years ago.

Sometimes I fear who I might have become had I not read the Harry Potter books as a child. It's silly.

I never go anywhere without a book or my Kindle.

I'm quite fond of book photography.

The local library is one of my favorite places to look for books at a bargain price.

I enjoy listening to instrumental music while reading.

I've never listened to an audio book.

I still enjoy children and middle grade books.

I don't like to lend out my books. I'm not sorry.

I view books in the same manner most people view paintings at an art gallery or museum.

My favorite thing to use as a bookmark is an old photograph.
