Literary Junkies {May}

Hey there fellow, Literary Junkies! Let's talk about books!

Pink Heels Pink Truck
 
Here are this month's questions:
 
1. What are you currently reading? Tell us about it!
 
Lessons from a Sheep Dog by Phillip Keller was just purchased, but I haven't opened it yet.  Has anyone read it?
 
2. Do you judge a book by its cover? What cover elements make you not want to pick up a book?
 
I guess so, especially if it's about crafting or sewing.  I would pass on a crafty book that looks too difficult or complicated.
3. Do you participate in any other bookish link-ups? Tell us about them so we can join next time!
 
Nope.

4. Have you ever watched a movie that was better than its book version? Explain yourself!
 
No, though I do love The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings movies.  My imagination is pretty vivid while reading books.  I don't think IMAX 3D even comes close!  ;-) 

5. Summer is here! Do you read more often during any particular season?
 
Lots more reading happens in the winter when it gets dark so early.
 
6. What is the worst book you've read this year? Why?
 
Bad books generally aren't finished.  I just move on to something else.  A slow paced book will be tossed quickly!

  1. I haven't really read any terrible books this year either. I give up on them too soon if they are bad.

  2. I haven't read Sheep Dog - I can't wait to hear what you think of it.

  3. I once read for hours but now I just drop off to sleep while reading, terrible books never get finished good books get read a few times.

  4. I judge books by their covers too. I also judge magazines by their covers as well. I wish I was more crafty. I never look at crafting or sewing books. I love Goodreads because it recommends books to me that are similar to ones that I've already read or want to read. It's an awesome way to discover new books that I wouldn't have otherwise. I liked the LOTR movies better than the books. It was hard for me to get through the books. I just liked seeing all the action in the movies.

    I wanted to reach out to you because I love finding fellow book lovers! I've created a unique opportunity with the help of a few other bookworms to connect people together who love books. It's an easy way to discover new books and make friends and get a new book for yourself! If you would like to join or want more info, I would love for you to check out my post! -- http://www.endlessblissblog.com/2014/05/summerbookswap.html

  5. I am the same with bad books - I have one that is sitting in my currently reading list on Goodreads and I don't think I will ever get it finished!

  6. Love this, I'm currently reading A Song of Fire and Ice which is the book for Game of Thrones. Love the show and I LOVE the books. So much more detail and intrigue!
