I think this is a pretty old tag but I still see people doing it, I love reading so I decided to do it too.
What was the last book you marked as read?
“I think therefore I play” by Andrea Pirlo. I love biographies and I love football so when the book is about one of the greatest players of our time, I had to read it and I loved it. Also, there are some great quotes, pretty short book unfortunately.
What are you currently reading?
“The art of racing in the rain” by Gareth Stein.
What was the last book that you marked as to read?
I think it was “Twelve Years a Slave” by Solomon Northup. I constantly add new books to ‘to-read’.
What do you plan to read next?
That’s quite a dilemma, I’m torn between some ‘delicious’ books by Anthony Capella and “Stillness and speed” by Dennis Bergkamp (another biographical read).
Do you use the star rating system?
Most of the time, yes.
Do you have a wishlist?
No, because I use ‘to read’ as a wishlist.
What book do you want to buy next?
I use Kindle because I can carry it everywhere with me and it’s absolutely loaded, yet I keep adding more and more books so you never know.
Do you have any favourite quotes?
Tons! I write them down right after I read them and it’s impossible to put them all here but here are several:
“A book is a loaded gun in the house next door…Who knows who might be the target of the well-read man?”
― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
“Every true love and friendship is a story of unexpected transformation. If we are the same person before and after we loved, that means we haven’t loved enough.”
― Elif Shafak, The Forty Rules of Love
“My contention is that your blessings derive from your positive contributions. But they must come from the heart. Not because of what you expect in return. Otherwise what you contributed was a loan, not a gift.”
― Gil Scott-Heron, The Last Holiday
and many many more…
Who are your favourite authors?
Impossible to answer this one, there are so many outstanding authors. The only thing I can say is that there is one who makes me very emotional and I’m crying and laughing and crying when I read something from him no matter if it’s a book or song lyrics and it’s Tiziano Ferro.
Have you joined any groups?
No, actually I’m active on Goodreads only for myself. I mean, it’s kind of keeping an archive for myself, checking reviews and so on but I don’t even have friends there, I haven’t even added my boyfriend I think.
It would be pretty interesting for me to see what you like to read so if you feel for it, just do this tag! :-)
