Falling for Autumn: Bookish Confessions

As part of the Falling for Autumn readathon hosted by A Cup of Coffee and a Book, I’m hosting a challenge! I did this challenge for the Bout of Books readathon as well ages ago, and it was just so much fun. It’s called Bookish Confessions, and you’re invited to share yours! Though this challenge is designed for the readathon, feel free to join even if you aren’t readathon-ing with us.

I’ll go first. My confession is that I prefer to keep my books in such a pristine condition, that it interferes with my ability to actually read them. I KNOW.

I’m one of those people that hates it when the spine of a book breaks, so I can’t open a book fully. For some particularly tight bindings I’ve developed this technique where I just kinda peek into the book so I don’t have to completely open it. I’ve perfected holding a book open at a right angle (so you can only read one page at a time before you have to turn it a bit). Sometimes it’s hard to read the text close to the spine.

What is your bookish confession?

Or, if you’re stumped for something to share, answer these questions:

Physical book or eBook?
Paperback or Hardcover?
Reality or Make-believe?
Adult or Young-Adult?
Dog ears or Bookmarks?
Breaking the spine or Barely open the book?
Tea or Coffee?
Reading in bed or On the couch?
Series or Standalone?
Original or TV Adaptation?
Defy motion sickness or Audiobooks?
Author crushes or Who-was-that-guy-again?
Interview or Guest post?
