This Weeks Question:

Q. It's circle time. Time for us to open up and share. Can you tell us FIVE quirky habits or things about you? We all have them...

  1. I have major book OCD, if the book cover is damaged or the corners are bent, I look for another book. I will check every book in the pile to see which one is the one in the best condition.
  2. Cockroaches are my biggest fear, I have a sort of phobia with the little critters. I saw one last night, screamed, killed it, and didn't go back to sleep. That is how bad my fear is.
  3. I have a weird thumb that can bend back unnaturally. I bend it back to creep my friends, it works every time.
  4. I am obsessed with RITZ crackers, I cannot have just one. Especially if they have some cream cheese on em.
  5. I use anything as a bookmark: napkin, sock (clean), pencil, you name it. As long as it doesn't stain the book or damage it in any way, I use it. I just can't keep track of bookmarks.
Sooooo what are your 5 quirky habits?
Two more weeks left of school!


  1. OLD follower stopping by!

    Major book OCD here as well! I put by books in Zip Locks lmao!

    Thank you for sharing!

    MY FF

  2. Hopping through. I use tons of things as books. Money is a specialty. Right now, I'm using a chopsticks wrapper as a bookmark.

  3. New follower here. I have a similar phobia of centipedes. I freak the eff out if I ever see one. It all started when one fell on me while I was asleep. I've never woken from a dead sleep so fast in my entire life. Have a great Friday. :)

  4. Great quirks! I had to laugh at the last one because I do the exact same thing! Sometimes I use a tv remote or even another book.

    New Follower here! Love your blog!

    My quirks:

  5. I share your cover OCD. I refuse to purchase books that are damaged. Everything must be neat. I have novels that I purchased nearly 10 years ago that still look brand spanking new.

  6. Hello! Stopping by on the blog hop!!
    I've always told people that instead of buying a book mark, just use the dollar!!

    *New Follower!
    ~Happy Reading!~

  7. Me too! I also have an intense fear of roaches. It's ridiculous. *shudders* I'm with you on the books, the RITZ, and the bookmarks.

    xo, Maria

  8. New follower! I have a tendency to use whatever as a bookmark as well. Currently I'm using an old program folded up. Love te blog...the purple is FAB! Have a good one!

  9. Hi & Happy Friday!

    I am a new follower :)

    I can't stand cockroaches - eek!

    I have listed my answers here,

    Have a great weekend..

  10. All my joints crack, and my sister hates it, so I do it all the time to freak her out. We're cruel.

    I'm a new follower, happy friday!

  11. Hi Alex, I'm a new follower from Follow Friday. I definitely have OCD when it comes to my beloved books too. I worry about spine cracks, bent corners and stained pages whenever I'm reading a book. Which is probably why I can never let my friends borrow my books except a selected few. I would rather buy them a new one instead of letting them borrow my copy :)

    And cockroaches freak me out too. If a Dementor ever appear in front of me, it'll take the shape of a cockroach for sure!

  12. Stopping by for FF, I'm your newest follower :D

    I have the same issue OCD about books that you do. If the spine is bent, that makes me cringe *shivers*

    Here is my Follow Friday

  13. I totally use random pieces of paper as bookmarks! Hi! Just stopping by. Following you from the Feature and Follow Friday blog hop. Would love a follow back: I also have twitter: @wlbks and a facebook page: Have a 'good read' weekend!

  14. New follower! I don't mind if my books are bent or worn. I even like to buy used books because they cost less and they look like they've had a good life. Happy blog hop!

  15. This is a fun question. I’m learning so much about everybody and I don’t think most of us are as quirky as we think we are.

    My quirks seem normal enough. As I wrote them I woke up to the fact a lot of my quirks create inner conflicts. I’ve got a lot to think about!

    Follow me Back to my blog and see what quirks I’ve got –
