Bookish Things: I Only Read Books Once

Source: via Alexis on Pinterest

I'm that Gal.

I only read books once.

I like the element of surprise (even though I often cheat) that reading a book for the first time brings me.  I love the feeling of discovery.

Am I really the only one?  Anyone else a one and done reader?

Bookish Things: Quotes That Stick

Source: via Alexis on Pinterest

After all these years.  Every time I read this book quote, I remember the first time I read it and how it made me feel.  I still feel it in my gut.  If I were to get a book tattoo, it would be of this quote from The Hunger Games trilogy.

I'm not getting any new tattoos right now so maybe a bracelet (or picture of bracelet) will do instead.

Any bookish tattoos you would consider?
