Guilty Readers Book Tag


As reader’s we’ve all got some skeletons in our closets. We’ve done things that we don’t like to share because we’re not proud of it. So, when I saw this tag on Thrice’s blog I could not resist it. Not only was I excited to go through the questions. But, I’m excited to see what your answers are!

Have you ever re-gifted a book you’ve been given? 

Yes; However the book was not given as a gift, it was won in a Goodreads giveaway. After reading the synopsis I knew I was not the reader for the book and gave it to my father-in-law. He read it and loved it, the book is now being passed around through his military buddies.


Have you ever said you’ve read a book when you haven’t? 

I’ve never said that I’ve read a book when I haven’t. I’ve never seen a reason to lie about this question.


Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it? 

I have never borrowed a book and not returned it, I have been late returning it but never kept it. I have been a victim of not getting lent books back, not a fun feeling.


Have you ever read a series out of order? 

This sounds like a headache and a half. I have purchased series out of order but never read them out of order.


Have you ever spoiled a book for someone? 

Not on purpose, Before I get passionate about a book I will usually ask if they have any plans to read said book. After my rants, sometimes people will then buy the book with a little bit of my information as spoilers.


Have you ever dog eared a book? 

As a small child when I did not realize the value of a book and its ability. Now that I am older and understand the beauty a book is and how much work as gone into said book I would NEVER. (Just saying the guild level should definitely be higher on this one) 


Have you ever told someone you don’t own a book when you do? 

Probably, not on purpose though. I own a lot of books and for a while when I was working in my educated field and living at home I had money to burn. It was nothing for me to go daily and buy 5 to 8 books. I ended up with a lot of multiples during that time, that I would pass on to co-workers and friends.


Have you ever told someone you haven’t read a book when you have? 

Nope, I don’t really see a reason why to lie. Some people call certain books guilty pleasures. I think that authors pour their heart and soul into their work and absolutely no one should feel guilty enjoying that.


Have you ever skipped a chapter or a section of a book? 

Never, What if you miss an exciting part. I would feel lost and not enjoy the book at all; why read if not for the enjoyment of it.


Have you ever bad-mouthed a book you actually liked?

NEVER, like I said above “That is someones heart and soul”. There is no need to lie if you thoroughly enjoyed or disliked a book.


So it appears that I have a LOW guilt level, that being said I don’t really feel much guilt for some of those things. Most were done without the intention of something bad or done with the intention of getting a book in the hands of someone who would enjoy it much more than I.

So, what are you guilty of as a reader? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I’ve read series out of order before, but they are romance series that each book is a standalone so they don’t really matter! I’m guilty of dog-earing, but if it’s a book I owe and bought I can do what I want I think.
