Voting Wednesday, Jan 26

Voting Wednesday

We're hosting weekly thing (I hate the word meme) called "Voting Wednesday" where we make a voting ballot for each Wednesday and invite y'all to voice your opinion on whatever book related (or unrelated, we're not making any promises) issue we happen to pick.

So, here's the rules:

You form an opinion taking sides in the issue voted upon.

You voice that opinion on the comments, either as a short reply or by a link to your blog where you can make a stand.

Easy, eh?

So, the question of this week is:

Do you sneak a peak?

That is, do you take a clandestine look into the end of the book or some pages ahead to see if things turn out the way you wish? Or do you wish to keep it a surprise and wait until you do get there?

Teaser Tuesday, Jan 25

Teaser Tuesdays are a weekly book-themed meme, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. The rules are as follows:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • Be careful of spoilers! Don't ruin the book to others by revealing important plot developments. (So the last words of a dying central character are probably not okay...)
  • Share the title and the author of the book as well, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can look up the book and add it to their TBR list.
Here's our teaser for this week:
She jung about my neck, and kiss on kiss
She vied so fast, protesting oath on oath,
That in a twink she won me to her love.
O, you are novices!
The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare, p. 97

So, the question of this week is:

Do you have more books on your shelves you've read or not read?

Take a quick stock of your books. Have you read most of them or not? Do you keep books you've read and only buy new ones when you wish to read them? Or do you bounce on a good offer and a new interesting find and accidentally on purpose end up with loads of books you haven't quite gotten around to, yet?

The meat it feeds on.
