  1. #4 I can totally relate to. If I’m taking the subway and I’ve forgotten a bookmark, I’ll use a transfer ticket instead. A bookish fact about me (one that bugs almost everyone I know) is I’ve only read about a quarter of the print books I own. But I refuse and will tie myself to my bookcase if anyone suggests that I give my babies away!

  2. I used to read under the covers after bedtime too haha. 🙂

    I have tried owlcrate and the YA chronicles, they are book subscription boxes that ship internationally. They were both expensive but I think that owlcrate was worth it! 🙂
