While Rebecca of Just One More Page is on holiday, MizB has posted the question of the week:
When you buy books, do they immediately go onto your bookshelf to wait until you’re ready to read them (even if that means months/years from then!), or do you read them right away? What makes you do this? If you’re a ’shelver’, why do you think you don’t read the books right away? Do you ever feel guilty for letting the books sit there, unread? If you’re a ‘read-em-now’ person, why do you feel they have to be read right away? Do you give away the books when you’re done, too?
In general I am a shelver. I put the books on my shelf and get to them when I get to them. I don’t feel bad about it because books don’t ever get old in my opinion the story isn’t a trend, it’s a story. It is not like food it won’t expire. Sometimes I will read a book right away, like if it is the latest in a series I am really enjoying and I have the bug to read it, or something along those lines.
