Follow My Blog Friday – 3/25/11

Happy Friday everyone! Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted at Parajunkee's View.  If you're a new follower, please leave a link to your blog in the comments so that I can visit your blog.
This week's question from Follow My Book Blog Friday: Inspired by the inane twitter trend of #100factsaboutme, give us five BOOK RELATED silly facts about you.
1. I am a sucker for a book with a pretty cover and have made reading choices based on that alone.
2. I am reluctant to start the first book in a series that already has more than five books. It just seems like so much of a commitment (silly, I know).
3. I almost always sneak a peek at the end of the book before I’m done reading it. I try to resist the urge but it’s just too tempting and I usually look when I am about half way through.
4. I love my e-reader a lot more than I thought I would. I don’t ever want to stop reading bound books, but the e-reader is so convenient, especially at night when I don’t want to turn the lamp on.
5. As a teenager, I loved to read horror but as an adult, I now find those same books extremely frightening.
What are some silly, book related facts about you?

I feel the same way about my ereader. There's a place for both "real" books and ebooks in my life!

Sometimes I hesitate to start the first book of a series if most of the books out only because if I really like I become addicted and must read every book and then it becomes an expensive month for me :). Thanks for stopping by.

Hi, I'm hoppin' through. Happy Friday, I hope you have a fantastic weekend. :)

I'm kinda like you, though. I've chosen books based solely on how pretty the cover was and most of the time I ended up enjoying the books, but once in a while there's a dudd in the bunch. lol.

And I don't have an e-reader currently, but I would love to have one, even if I don't want to ever stop reading bound books.

And I'm totally following you by the way, sorta new to this. This is my second week doing the Follow Me Friday and my blog is still a bit new to the scene. So, if you get the chance, check out.

Hopping by for FF. I almost always read the last few sentences in the book I'm reading.

My friend looks at the end of books all the time, but I like the surprise! And I'm awful at cover buying! If it's got a nice cover, then I might have to buy it... :L Have a great week!

Hopping through. I often look at the end of a book but it's usually a bad idea because I then lose interest in the book since I know the ending.

Wow- our lists are freakishly similar! I definitely peek at the back of the book AND absolutely loved my e-reader more than I thought. Seriously, so weird! (http://bit.ly/gBA8Su)

Great list!! :)
