Friday Fun Facts!

Want to learn more about your fellow bloggers? Then you need to go visit www.parajunkee.com!


1) I ALWAYS have a book in my bag. Always. Even when I am going to a party or going out for drinks, I bring a book to read in the metro.

2) When I was a kid, I took piano lessons. However, I never become really good at playing the piano because I always ended up trying to read while practising...

3) I love shopping - my favourite shopping involves hunting for second hand books.

4) Instead of meditating or doing yoga, I find my inner calm by sitting down and just looking at my colour-coded shelves of books. It makes me relax and remember all the good times I have spent reading the books and all the good times to come.

5) When I was a little girl, I really wanted to be a librarian, it was my dream job and I used to go to the local library (tiny and only open 8 hours a week) and just walk around looking at the books and enjoying the smell of books.

Now it's your turn :-)


  1. Hey there, old follower just stopping by. I also used to want to be a librarian, but mostly because I love reading out loud and it would be fun to read to the kids everyday. :)

    Anyway, I hope you had a great week and I'll ttyl!

  2. I always have a book in my purse, too :) New follower, by the way! Great blog.

  3. I almost always have a book with me too.

  4. Hi, just stopping by on Follow Friday. I always have my kindle with me, just in case I can sneak in an unexpected 5 minutes!

  5. Hi! Just swinging through on the Follow Friday. Hey, I got a real kick out of reading your "5 Silly Book Facts"! You were very clever to read while taking piano lessons. I wish I would have known you then. You could have taught me how to do that without getting caught.

    Anyway, I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  6. I like the smell too...and I completely understand how just sitting there looking at the books is comforting...I do the same thing...and it may also be the reason we have bookshelves of some kind in most of the rooms in our home :)

  7. Thanks for hopping by my site, new follower here :)

    Thanks for the recommendation to watch the Swedish version of Let Me In, my friend recommended the same thing - she said it's the best horror movie she's ever seen and won't even watch the American version because she says it can't ever compare.. but I don't know, after finishing the book last night, I think the movie would scare the pants off me! LOL

    I think looking at books is comforting too, it's great to be able to look at the shelf and see how many great books I've read and been caught up in - now that I have a nook I can see the pages of books I have yet to read, but it doesn't quite feel the same (even though I LOVE my nook!)

    Happy friday, looking forward to getting to know you better!
