Bout of Books – Challenge (15/05/12)

You can find the challenge post at Nyx Book Reviews
Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

Ooooo… questions ;) I missed yesterdays challenge but here goes nothing…

Share your most shocking, embarrassing or funny book related story.

Umm… the only REALLY embarrassing books moments I have is when 
a) my mum found a Mills and Boons book under my pillow when I was 13. What she was doing anywhere near the pillows of my nicely made bed I will never know… 
And then next is when I had my copy of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon in the car along with my grandmother and as picked it up (thank fully she didn’t open as I had no idea where I had left the bookmark) and asked me if it was good. Now I know that some grandmothers – from what I have heard – have been responsible for getting their grand-kids into the Outlander series…yeah, my gran isn’t one of them. I think I would have died if she had started reading it somewhere…ummm…dodgy.

And just for the heck of it here is the 'this or that' questions :)

Physical book or eBook? – Physical book
Paperback or Hardcover? – Paperback
Reality or Make-believe? – Make-believe
Adult or Young-Adult? – Adult
Dog ears or Bookmarks? – Bookmarks
Breaking the spine or Barely open the book? – Breaking the spine

Defy motion sickness or Audiobooks? – Audiobooks
Author crushes or Who-was-that-guy-again? – Who-Was-That-Guy-Again
Interview or Guest post? – Guest Post

I hope everyone's reading is going well :0)



  1. I wish I actually knew what the books in your stories were so I could get the embarrassment. I'll have to look them up. How lame am I?

  2. Lol not at all :) I can't remember specifically what the Mills and Boon books was - some kind of historical romance :) And Outlander is an over 600 page historical number with sex, language, violence... Yeah, I don't mind the language and violence but if my gran had opened the book at the OTHER bit I would have shriveled up and died lol :)
