Bookish Naughty or Nice Tag

Zuky recently tagged me in the Bookish Naughty or Nice tag, so I thought I’d rearrange my planned blogs to fit this in before Christmas. It sounds both fun and festive, so that’s perfect timing! Oh, and if you’re looking for more replies to this tag, The Orangutan Librarian also did the tag and has fun answers.

Several of these don’t get super-specific about timing, but since Santa usually only pays attention to what you’ve done since last Christmas, that’s the timing I’m using for the answers for the tag.

The Rules

  • Tag & link the person who tagged you.
  • Tag and link Jenniely’s post, for she’s love to read everyone’s answers!
  • Tick/cross off the ones you’ve done.
  • Tag another 10 people.

Received an ARC and not reviewed it – I have not actually gotten any ARCs this year, so I’m good on this one.

Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley – I’m not on Netgalley. You could make a case that means I have a 0% feedback rating, but I’m just going to consider this one good too.

X – Rated a book on Goodreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did) – … maybe? We’ll go with probably, even though I’m not sure.

Folded down the page of a book – NO! Having worked in a library, this is one of my biggest bookish pet peeves.

X – Accidentally spilled on a book – Probably, to be honest, though I don’t remember what was spilled or what book was spilled onto. But I read while eating a lot so this is very likely.

X – DNF a book this year – Yes indeed! 7 books, I think.

Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it – no. While I have bought books that I thought were pretty, I do intend to read them. (Of course, intent does not always turn out the way we expect…)

X – Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework) – I do this ALL. THE. TIME. Oops.

X – Skim read a book – Yup!

Completely missed your Goodreads goal – I’m good on this one, beat my GR goal by 10 or so books at the time I’m reading this.

Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library – Oh heck no! I always return my library books, though not always on time.

Broke a book buying ban – I don’t bother with silly things like book buying bans. BUY ALL THE BOOKS.

Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about – I was really good about this one this year. Previous years I wouldn’t be able to answer this one the same way, though…

Wrote in a book you were reading – Nope, this one I only do when I have homework assignments.

Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads – I’m… uh… kind-of compulsive about adding books to Goodreads…

Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend – If I borrow a book, it’s from the library. Otherwise I buy it!

Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book – No one has asked me to borrow a book this year! Maybe because I’m always buying books for people as gifts.

Broke the spine of someone else’s book – NO NO NO. This is worse than dog-earing pages.

Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged – I don’t think so. I’m usually very careful with my book jackets.

X – Sat on a book accidentally – Probably? I’ll count it for good measure.

Final Score: 6 out of 20

6 of 20? I think that means I made the nice list. Yay! Hopefully Santa agrees with me…

On the other hand, I’m not tagging anyone. So maybe that puts me on the naughty list. Hmm.

    1. There are several that aren’t necessarily universal. For example, as a student I never thought of writing up a book to be a bad thing, but it’s only something I did for classes.
