Thank you to Joey @ Thoughts and Afterthoughts for tagging me for The Book Sacrifice Tag. If haven’t yet, you need to check out his blog. I love reading it and I bet you would, too!
I used to have a problem with getting rid of books. I was kind of a book hoarder. But then my shelves started overflowing and my husband bought me a Kindle for one birthday. He was tired of seeing the piles. I started selling my non-favorites to a used book store and used the money to buy new e-books. 🙂 So, I wouldn’t have problems following through on the book sacrifices I’ve listed.
1. An Over-Hyped Book:
Situation: You’re in a store when the zombie apocalypse hits. The military informs everyone that over-hyped books are the zombies only weakness. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you disliked do you start chucking at the zombies?
I didn’t hate The Girl on the Train, but I definitely did not love it. It was WAY over-hyped. It was not the “next Gone Girl“. It was slow and the main character was so annoying. It would make a great zombie defense mechanism.
2. A Sequel:
Situation: torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?
I feel like my time would have been better spent using Allegiant as an umbrella in one of Seattle’s downpours than reading it.
3. A Classic:
Situation: You’re in English class and your professor raves about a Classic that “transcends time”. If given the opportunity to travel back in time, which Classic would you try to stop from ever publishing?
Honestly, I’m horrible with choosing anything classic. I don’t read many. I do remember reading a bunch of them in a Humanities class in college. One of them was by Nietzsche. I’ll just go with it. It was pretty boring.
4. A Least Favorite Book:
Situation: apparently global warming = suddenly frozen wasteland. Your only hope of survival for warmth is to burn a book. Which book will you not regret lighting?
A book about the evolution of artificial light should put off more heat, right? I would have no problem burning this book. It had a lot of interesting information, but it made my worst college textbook the most exciting read of the century.
