Here are the 11 questions by "Loving My Lit":

1. Which one do you use more: the library or Amazon/bookstores?
I usually go to bookstores since my local library is really small and seriously outdated, I wish it was better!

2. How many books do you own?
I don't know the exact amount of books I own but it's close to 250 in physical copies and nearly 100 in ebooks. I'm working on getting physical copies of my ebooks but in my country paperbacks cost nearly 20 euros so...

3. How do you organize your bookshelves: rainbow or alphabetically? If you have a Kindle/iPad, do you categorize your ebooks?I organize my books by genre, then author and then series in my bookshelf I have to admit that I have a little bookshelf OCD. In my kindle I have a folder called "Review" for all the books I have to review and then another called "Reviewed" for all the books I already reviewed and the rest of the books are just hanging there all mixed up.

4. Are you on Goodreads? What’s your user name?
Of course I'm on Goodreads! My username is anabeatrizesteves, here's a link to my profile, feel free to add me!

5. What’s your relationship with John Green?
The only John Green book I've read is "The Fault in Our Stars" and even if I think it has some details in the story that I don't like I think his writing is amazing!

6. Are you religious?
I'm very religious! I'm Roman Catholic and I still attend sunday school (for me it's on Fridays) and I'm to be confirmed in the near future.

7.What’s your favorite kind of cover: simplistic, hand-drawn, or photographed?
I love combinations of phtographs and hand-drawn elements, I know it might seem weird but covers that are just photographed weird me out, ate least give a speacial touch in the title!

8. Do you follow book ‘trends’?I don't really follow book trends since I just read what I like and don't care if other people don't like it.

9. Do you have a local bookstore?
I don't have a bookstore in my town but we have a special shop that we call "papelaria" that sells school supplies and overpriced books so...

10. Do you read comics? Do you consider them ‘books’?
I don't really read comics since there aren't a lot of stores that sell them in my area and they're really expensive on the internet.

11. Have you ever bought a book for its cover alone? Which one?
Yes I have, I present you A Game of Thrones (part I.) by George R. R. Martin, the Portuguese edition.

  1. Haha, I can relate to you with the trying (and failing) to learn to play the guitar! I've been at it for years, but I still can't play it well! And bookshelf OCD is always the best kind of OCD ;)
