Awesome! I like Bourbon biscuits :) :)

I did this meme too! :)

SFP said...

One of these days I'm going to get around to reading an Enid Blyton. I managed to miss her completely when I was a child.

Interesting - I would go crazy if I didn't look up every unfamiliar word.

Meghan said...

You did really well with the short answers! I don't look up words either. I'm amazed at the people that do, honestly, I've always just guessed. I get too annoyed to be parted from the book to find a dictionary/go online. :p

Trisha said...

I am so jealous! How did you get away with buying 10 books at once?

I didn't bother trying to write short answers and ended up doing my quick list in pictures.

Maree said...

Great answers. This is a fun meme :)

Marie Burton said...

I find it interesting that there are few of us stand-alone readers!!
Fun reading your answers!

Chris said...

Book Psmith said...

I am a little envious of the ten books at once...must resist urge to do the same. I enjoyed reading your answers.

Blodeuedd said...

Belle said...

I love drinking tea when I'm reading, too. Ten book shopping spree - love it!

Lahni said...

TEN BOOKS!!? I wish I could buy that many at a time!!

bermudaonion said...

I would love to have the room to organize my books!

lilly said...

I am curious to see what you think of Paul Auster. I have read some books of him and I do like his style but it's a little dark in my opinion.

Trish said...

I love snacking while I eat too. Don't drink a whole lot as I tend to be a little clumsy. :)

Robin of My Two Blessings said...

Yes,I love tea as well. Particularly in the winters. 10 books - good for you. Enjoyed reading your answers.

Yvonne said...

Great answers!

Memory said...

Tea and books are such a wonderful combination! I'm glad to come across another marker, too. Most of the people I know are horrified when they learn that I sometimes write in my books.

Kristen said...

I love the idea of 10 books at once

Literary Feline said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who sometimes lays a book flat open. I don't feel so bad now. :-)

softdrink said...

I love to drink tea while I read, too. I even have a lovely ginger tea from Tetley which I guy at a local Indian store; it's so delicious! I like Enid Blyton books, too, although I never read her when I was a child (unfortunately, I didn't know of her!).
