The tagged book is the last one I did this with and it totally was worth it. Come to think about it, I do not think there ever was one that was not worth it!

This was a tough one...but in the end I will settle for the “amnesia pill“, because the joy of reading certain books for the first time, discovering their stories and plot twists etc. I am actually jealous of people who still have the opportunity to read certain of my fav books for the first time.
2nd it will be the “sacrifice pill“... for DOBBY!

This explains everything! And I can see it in the amount of books I have read in the “Blink“ period! Almost nothing!!! Did a few audio books - but it does not count as it is a re-listening, on in the background, while I am “blinking“ the time away!

This must change!!!!

This was a great read! I am thankful for coming across the #2019BookHoroscope article. This introduced me to so many good books! This is the second book this year to give me lots of food for thought about the language we used towards other people and how we experience each other!

50 Shades of F%#£ing Gray
Because of the fanclub...the same people who constantly talked to me like "how can you read" or "or how can you read books without pictures" or "reading is boring" or "are you really reading that big book, I will die if I have to" or versions of this, was the same stupid people jumping on the bandwagon, buying the book, huddling in small groups to discuss it and telling me that it is the greatest literary work ever?

GlitterGirl Really? Have you read Tolstoy? Dickens? Stoker? Austen? Bronté? Pratchett? Gaiman? Maybe King? Have you read Hitchhikers Guide? Have you actually ever read a real book? Or where you one of those stupid creatures who came to me for book reports in school? So suck it 50 Shades Fanclub! (Oh and Ps: this little rant is not focused on any actual READERS who read it or the on content) @TheReadingMermaid (edited) 7mo
KatieDid927 I won‘t read it because of those fans AND because of the content. 7mo
