NAME OF MY BOOK BLOG(S): Portable Pieces of Thoughts

I HAVE BEEN BLOGGING SINCE: 2010

GENRES COVERED MOST ON MY BLOG: I am omnivorous, I read almost everything: urban fantasy, paranormal romance, those freaking romance, non fiction, historical fiction, thrillers, sci-fi, space operas, crime mysteries, you name it...

MY EARLIEST MEMORY OF READING: ???

FIRST BOOK I READ OVER AND OVER: LOTR by Tolkien. I couldn't get enough of it. And then I discovered Silmarillion ;).

MY FAVORITE PLACE TO READ: where nobody can disturb me.

MY MUST-HAVE READING ACCESSORIES: a pencil - I am a doodle addict

MY BOOKSHELVES ARE: I don't believe in shelves. I believe in glass bookcases.

MY TBR LIST/PILE IS: too full? too long?

A BOOK THAT INTIMIDATES ME: there is no such a book.

IF I COULD GO TO ANY LITERARY DESTINATION I WOULD CHOOSE: Egypt

MY FAVORITE NON-BOOKISH ACTIVITY: shopping for shoes, drinking coffee, creating jewellery

MY FAVORITE BOOK TO MOVIE ADAPTATION: there is no such thing as a good book to movie adaptation. Nuh-huh

MY BOOK BLOG STANDS OUT FROM THE CROWD BECAUSE: it doesn't stand out from the crowd. Not really. No fireworsks just reviews and essays.

MY MUST-READ BLOGS (PLEASE LIMIT TO 3): Truth, Beauty, Freedom and Books, TYWKIWDBI, Dear Author,

MY READING PERSONALITY (http://www.bookbrowse.com/quiz/) IS: OK I actually went there and did that quiz. Here is the result: "You read for entertainment but also to expand your mind. You're open to new ideas and new writers, and are not wedded to a particular genre or limited range of authors." I quite agree.

  3. Hi everybody and thanks for your comments. I have been caught reading most improbable books. When I am hard-pressed for appropriate lecture I can even read instruction manuals and a telephone directory.

  4. So glad you were featured today, Bridget!

    I love that no book intimidates you! I need to be like that. I have a few that scare me like Ulysses by James Joyce.

    What blog is TYWKIWDBI? If I know it, I am drawing a blank on what it could be.

    I would totally visit Egypt, too! I am obsessed with Ancient Egypt. :D
