I was actually kind of confused by this topic, then I read Shanah’s and it made a lot more sense.
So, let’s not delay this:
Twists and Turns
Finding a comfortable reading position isn’t always easy. I’ve been known to sit upside down when reading a book, if it feels right. I will shift and turn and somersault until I find a position I like.
Yes, just like Shanah (and I’m sure many of you) I like to read my hardcovers without the dust jacket on. I just don’t want to ruin it.
Real Time Reactions
My mom used to make fun of me all the time for this, but I still do it. As I’m reading, I will react to what I’m reading as I’m reading it. Basically, I get really into the book and start to show it by my actions. I’m no stranger to crying while reading, but I also find myself jumping up and down for joy or sucking my teeth at annoying characters. I get really into it.
That New Book Smell
I’m sure this would sound really weird to non-bookish people but I love smelling my books when I first get them. There’s just something about that fresh paper.
Scoping Little Free Libraries
There are a whole bunch of Little Free Libraries in the city near me and I always look to see if there’s anything good. Sometimes I find some great hidden treasures, other times I get something cute for my cousins. It’s always a fun addition to my Downtown adventures.
