Real Neat Blog Award

Happy Tuesday again! I was nominated for the Real Neat Blog Award by Nikita @ Prose & Pancakes. If you aren’t already following Nikita, please go check out her awesome site and send her some love from me!

 

The Rules

  1. Display the award logo.
  2. Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
  3. Answer the questions of the one who nominated you
  4. Nominate some bloggers.
  5. Ask them seven questions.

 What’s your favorite guilty pleasure?

Hmm. This is a toughy for me! Bookishly speaking, I don’t have one. I don’t feel guilty about what I read. I own it all. LOL! But, if we’re not limited to books here….

 If you had to pick only three books/series to read for the rest of your life, which ones would you choose?

These are all meant to represent their series. Let me say that this is a cruel question, Nikita!!! LOL! It’s way too hard to pick!! I had to pick Twilight because it got me started with my LOVE for reading. The other two are favorites that I could reread forever and be content doing it.

 Do you remember the first book you read? If yes, which one was it?

I do not remember. I had a lot of books as a kid and was reading from a very early age. But, as mentioned above, it wasn’t until Twilight that I recognized that I could LOVE to read.

 How much do you read every day?

This varies GREATLY! I may only read 30 minutes in bed at night before I pass out reading, or I may spend almost the whole day reading (this rarely happens, but it does sometimes).

 Do you have a bad book habit? If yes, what’s it?

Hmm. I don’t think so. I might think of one later, though.

 Do you snack while reading a book? What are your favorite snacks to have while reading?

I have snacked while reading a book, but it’s not a usual thing. My favorite snack if I’m reading a book, though, is a bit of peanut butter in a cup with some chocolate chips mixed in. I eat with a spoon. Yes, several people have told me it’s weird. But, it’s totally yummy!

 Is English your native language? Do you read books in other languages?

English is my native language. I have read some children’s books in Spanish, but nothing else yet. It’s a long-term goal of mine to be able to read bigger books in other languages. I’ve been tempted to pick up a Latin version of Harry Potter and translate it. I’m a geek like that. I know. Being a homeschool mom, I have had an introduction to a lot of other languages: Latin, Greek, Spanish, French, German, and Japanese have all been studied to differing extents. Unfortunately I’m not fluent in any. I’m working on getting there with Spanish this year.

  2. I love your answers! ❤ I also like Twilight a lot, and that’s only because it made me a reader. Also, reading HP in Latin 😍!!

    Reading in French and Spanish without looking up so many words is my dream lol. I hope you’re able to be fluent in Spanish by the end of this year! Happy Tuesday!
