This is where I share some totally pointless things!
I do have a few pre-reading and post-reading “rituals”, if you can call them that, and today I wanted to share to you guys my five pre-reading rituals!
Go ahead and #GrabABook!
Because duh. How the heck are you going to start reading without your book?! E-Readers and phones work great as well.
Yes, I Think #ImInLove…
After I pick up my book of choice, I’ll first stare at it. For hardcovers, I may remove the dust jacket and admire it, as well as the book without the jacket. For paperbacks, I’ll twist it in all angles and inspect its gorgeous lines. For e-books, well, staring at the cover will do!
Yes. You can fall in love with books, and that is the second step in my pre-reading ritual.
#CalmYourBalls, Aimee. But gah, #hyperventilating!
This is the part where I get EXTREMELY excited to finally start the book. I may just hyperventilate on my own or share my gush-y feelings on social media! I probably look like some sort of diseased chicken to my family and friends at this stage, but who cares! I’m going to read a new book!
Come to me, my lovely. Mwahahaha! (By this point, I’m clutching my book like a maniac.)
This is the stage where I tell everyone NOT TO DISTURB ME. I am now going to start my beautiful book. Shh. Shut up or I might have to duct tape your mouth and lock you up in my basement.
So. What are your some of your pre-reading rituals? ;)
Aimee loves being a little bookworm (okay–she doesn’t like being little). She also loves chocolates and sweets but is freaked out by the thought of possibly getting diabetes.
