"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


TFAT: Bookish Questions

Just for fun, I thought I'd answer a few Bookish Questions.  I love these kinds of things, so I encourage everyone to complete them as well and link your posts in the comments!

Question #1: Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
       I have a armchair in the corner of my bedroom with a drafting table, that's kind of my little reading nook/computer nook.  The drafting table is a portable one, so I can fold it up to store it away and just curl up in my chair.  It's a nice quiet place to read. But I can read anywhere.

Question #2: Bookmark or a random piece of paper?
       I have a pretty good bookmark collection, but I don't always remember to stick one in my current book.  When that happens, I'll use anything, but most often it's a receipt dug out of my wallet.

Question #3: Can you stop reading anytime you want or do you have to stop at a certain page, chapter, part, etc.?
       If I'm really into a book I won't want to stop, but I can stop anywhere.  I don't have a particular place or requirement.

Question #4: Do you eat or drink while reading?
       I'll have a drink nearby, but I rarely eat anything while reading; I wouldn't want to get the pages all dirty.  I also make people who borrow my books follow this rule too.

Question #5: Can you read while listening to music/watching TV?
       If I'm reading for school sometimes I have to have silence, but if I'm reading for fun, other noise doesn't bother me.  I zone all the things around me out, and if I can't that usually means I just can't get into a book.     

Question #6: One book at a time, or several at once?
       I have several going at once, otherwise I'd never get any read!     

Question #7: Reading at home or everywhere?
       I read all the places!  I always have a book in my bag because if I'm waiting for anything I whip it out.

Question #8: Reading out loud or silently in your head?
       Reading aloud bothers me to no end, unless it's poetry.

Question #9: Do you read ahead or skip pages?
       I am an awful read the last page/last chapter person.  But it never bothers me, because it is the journey I love.
Question #10: Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
       I try my hardest to keep it new, unless I own a couple copies then I break the spine like crazy!  Or if I'm reading an ARC (unless it's a signed ARC), then I don't care as much.

Question #11: Do you write in books?
       If I have multiple copies, if it's for school, if it's a line I can't get out of my head.
