#BookADayUK | Week Four

#BookADayUK | Week Four

The Borough Press is encouraging everyone to tweet a #BookADayUK (please note the hashtag change) all throughout June to celebrate Independent Booksellers Week, which began on 28th June. I’ve really enjoyed tweeting and posting a new photo on Tumblr every day, so here’s a recap of the third week! Clicking on each image takes you to the Tumblr post.

#BookADayUK | Week Four
23rd. Made to read at school.

I studied On Liberty for my sixth form philosophy course.

24th. Hooked me in to reading.
I actually didn’t love young adult literature like I do now (and dystopian literature) until I read The Hunger Games.

25th. Never finished it.
I hate to leave books unfinished, but I’ve tried to read Emma by Jane Austen two or three times now and have never managed to get very far. I’m determined to finish it one day!

26th. Should have sold more copies.
Ruta Sepetys is one of my favourite authors and although Between Shades of Gray is her most popular novel and one of my absolute favourites, I really want more people to read Out of the Easy too as it’s just as brilliant – it was one of my favourite books of 2013!

27th. Want to be one of the characters.
Do I want to go on an epic road tip with a nice boy, as in Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour? Why yes, yes I do.

28th. Bought at my favourite independent bookshop.
I bought John Wyndham’s The Chrysalids and The Day of the Triffids in Daunt Books, Marylebone, one of my favourite indie bookshops.

29th. The one I have reread most often.
I’ve read The Time Traveler’s Wife, one of my favourite books, around four or five times. I don’t make as much time to re-read books as I should do. It’s due another re-read!

30th. Would save if my house burned down.
Because although I appreciate irony most of the time, this wouldn’t be one of those times. In all seriousness, I actually wouldn’t want to save just one particular book. I’d probably grab as many as I could off my bookshelves and throw them out of the window. And perhaps my Kindle?
