How Much Of A Book Addict Are You?
Have you ever wondered how much of a book addict you are?
I certainly have! Especially when I started participating in book blogging and reviewing, I felt like an amateur (and still do) while trying to understand the ways of book bloggers and how to manage reading all of the delectable books out there as fast as possible!
I came across this quiz on BuzzFeed asking “How Much Of A Book Addict Are You?” (You can take it too by clicking on “BuzzFeed!”) Well, naturally, I took the quiz to see which category of crazy I fell into.
It turns out that I’m not as crazy as I was thinking—which I’m glad for. Some balance is always good in life, right?
If you aren’t interested in taking the quiz for yourself, I’ll include the questions (along my answers) here for your perusal.
1) Read more than one book a month?
2) Read more than one book a week?
3) Read more than one book a day?
On several occasions. Never EVERY day though.
4) Read more than one book at the same time?
You can do that!?! I thought it had to be a minimum of three?

9) Prefer dates with books over dates with friends?
I’m an introvert, not a monster!

Uhm, NO. Being a mother makes dates with my husband all the more sweet (and less often!) I’ll take every opportunity I can get to spend time with him 🙂
11) Prefer dates with books period?
I don’t really know how to answer this? Let’s just say when I’m able, I’m reading!
