kris' bookfessions #2 - #5

Because I'm a sharing and caring kind of gal, I thought I'd post some of my favourite admissions from the Bookfessions site.

This has nothing to do with my laziness whatsoever.


Instead, it is all about discovering, knowing there are other readers out there who feel exactly the same way that you do about books. 

Which, I think, is one of the greatest things about this online reading community we have.  

That feeling of finding kindred spirits.  

Now I have something in my eye...

To those people who think we readers are weird?  The feeling is totally fucking mutual.  Idiots.

Sorry Mumma!  I love you!

kris' bookfession #4

It's not my fault if a shop hires dickhead staff, who have absolutely no fucking idea how to shelve books by their correct genres.  I say there should be a special law allowing bookstore owners the right to corporal punishment so that their employees have a hope of getting a bloody clue.

Erm, sorry Mumma.


kris' bookfession #5

Amen.  :)

I accept your apology with one comment - when you complain about how books are shelved, do not do it at the top of your voice!!! I get embarrassed, and the only thing I can do is drag you out of the store before they call the police!!!

Chris said...

Perhaps you could walk up to the store's information center and ask them what their organizing principle is. Maybe it's just one you've not encountered before. I mean, it's possible a book store could be organized by chaos theory, right?

Kris said...

Mumma: And I thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping me from having a police record, Mumma. I really do.

Chris: "I mean, it's possible a book store could be organized by chaos theory, right?"

You know you're asking the person who was recently diagnosed with an OCD, right.

Chris said...

Just theorizing. ;p

Number 1 is sooooo true. Someone *coughAdamcough* inspired me to creep some old high school people on Facebook. Profile pic? Him with a dead animal (I'm sure your parents are proud). Favourite books? "Ones with pictures" and I'm pretty sure he didn't mean yaoi. Ewwwwww. There's a reason I left that town. I may not care for your genre of choice, but you have to have one. :-)

Kris said...

Chris: Well, stop it. It makes me head hurt.

Also, there are no excuses.

Tam: " Favourite books? "Ones with pictures" and I'm pretty sure he didn't mean yaoi."

Oh, c'mon Tam. I think you're doing him a disservice. I'm sure that the 'how to butcher an unsuspecting animal whom you just stalked and murdered' comes with pictures.

As does Playboy.

I'm totally with you on Bookfession #2. (I'm thinking of suggesting they try glueing a book to their cat and seeing if they like it any better though...) :D

Kris said...

Kaetrin: Well, as long as it isn't Sir Terry... :P

Kaetrin said...

@ Kris. well, you know, if it gets people reading it's a good thing right?

Kris said...

Kaetrin: Not if it involves desecrating Sir Terry's it's not.

And why the hell am I still typing to you anyways?
