“Me sorprendió el verano traicionero
lejos de ti, lejos de mí muriendo.
Junio, julio y agosto, no os entiendo.
No sé por qué reís mientras me muero.
Vengan nieve y granizo, venga enero,
vengan escarchas ya, vayan viniendo.
Troncos que fueron nidos ahora enciendo
y no consigo el calor que quiero.”—
“Tienes seis sonrisas, ¿lo sabías?
Una cuando algo te hace reír de verdad.
Otra cuando te ríes sólo por cortesía.
La tercera, cuando te sientes incómodo.
Otra cuando te ríes de ti mismo.
La quinta es cuando algo te sorprende.
Y la sexta, cuando hablas de ella.”—(via evaixcheltroisfromages) (via letrasendesorden, laestrelladepersia)
1. Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack? I sometimes munch on some cranberries or baby carrots or something like that, but I mostly read before I go to sleep so…
2. What is your favorite drink while reading? Water, or orange juice c:
3. Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you? On text books yeah, but I’ve always asked myself what the hell do people write on their books, I mean, I want them to last and to be pretty for ever :)
4. How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ear? Laying the book flat open? I like to make bookmarks with recycled stuff so yeah, a bookmark is the way to go.
5. Fiction, Non-Fiction, or Both? Both
6. Are you a person who tends to read to the end of a chapter, or can you stop anywhere? I prefer to read until the chapter ends, because if I don’t I have to go back and try to remember the last thing I read.
7. Are you a person to throw a book across the room or on the floor if the author irritates you? No… I’ve been tempted to, but if I get mad or something I just usually hide it on a drawer.
8. If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away? If I can’t decipher the meaning with help of the context, yes.

10. What is the last book you bought? Ohh… uhm… I don’t remember, maybe it was Brisingr by Christopher Paolini.
11. Are you a person that reads one book at a time, or can you read more than one? One book at a time, but I can go with two if I need to read something for school.
12. Do you have a favorite time/place to read? Yes, in bed before I go to sleep. Or in the balcony if it’s not too chilly outside.
13. Do you prefer series books or stand-alones? Both, but I’ve found myself reading more series than any other thing.
14. Is there a specific book or author you find yourself recommending over and over? I always recommend books by Gabriel García Márquez, I love them. But I also recommend Christopher Paolini a lot.
15. How do you organize your books? By genre, title, author’s last name, etc? If they’re a series, they go from first to last. If not, by width xD
