I always take a book to bed with me. I can't fall asleep without at least reading a page.
I haven't read some of the "classics" such as Gulliver's Travels or Animal Farm. Even though I'm an English teacher. Even though I have a bachelor's degree in English Literature. (And soon will have a master's degree in English, too. Wheeeee!!! ... Ahem, sorry.)
Twilight is my guilty pleasure. I honestly lost count of how many times I've reread it!
One of my pet peeves about teaching is hearing my students actually show off about the fact that they've never read an entire book. This makes me fear for the future of America...
Many of my favorite books were first picked up because I saw the film adaptation... first.
I thought it was a good idea that I picked my favorite book, The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje, as the focus of my master's thesis. However, it only made me resent the book initially, in the early stages of my thesis work. Now that the thesis has been written (huzzah!), I'm happy to say I'm back to loving the book again.
I've never read an entire novel by Stephen King. I'm too much of a chicken!
One of my favorite things about the hostessing job I had at the airport was the amount of downtime I spent reading books at the counter. I think I read a book a week on average.
I can't read a book without dogearing it.
My absolute favorite author in the world is Patrica Veryan. Her books are a mix of Regency and Georgian romance, and I used to repeatedly check them out of my local library before finally hunting them down for cheap/used on Amazon. I love her books so much, I own all of the copies I can buy in the U.S. (And best of all, they're not "bodice-rippers," but adventures with actual plot and minimal "adult themes!")
Bonus confession: I wish I lived in this room.
Do you have any confessions you feel brave enough to share?
