Okay I read a bit more today and am almost done with Tempting Danger this book has gotten good where I am having a hard time putting it down. I got a lot more reading done then yesterday, but I hope to get this book done and start making some way into Mercury Striking. I also thought I would do the challenge for today

Would you rather:
Lend books to someone who dog-ears pages or to someone who reads with cheesy Chetos fingers?
I would rather have someone dog-ear my books then put stains in them. I used to do this when I was younger anyway so I can tolerate it. Sometimes though when I stain is to dark it is hard to read through it and understand what it says.

Would your rather:
Be able to meet one character of your choice or meet one author of your choice?
I would rather most likely meet an author of my choice. I like characters where they are because if they became real I have a feeling I wouldn't like them as much as when they are in the books. 

Would you rather:
Never be allowed in a book store again or never be allowed in a library again?
I would choose not to be allowed in a book store again. The reasoning is first I can go to the library and read free books all the time, also if there is a book I want then I can order it online easily enough or download it to my nook or other device. So it would just be easier to not go to a book store again though I would be sad. :(

Would you rather:
Have to choose one of your favorite characters to die in their book or have to pick one of your favorite couples to break up in their book?
I have had favorite characters die in books and usually I am okay with it especially if they wouldn't be happy or if it is needed plot wise. I have also read books where my favorite couple breaks up this one for me is harder to get over since I want the main character to be with who I think would be great for them. So I guess I have to choose favorite characters to die in their book.

Would you rather?
Be required to read Twilight once a year for the rest of your life or The Scarlet Letter once a year for the rest of your life?
I have never read The Scarlet Letter so I would love to read this book and see what its all about and if its any good. I also could read Twilight though I think it would get real old really fast but they are fast reads so it wouldn't take anytime to reread them.

Let me know if you did this challenge as well and how you did for Day 2?


  1. You are doing great! I agree with the doggy eared pages over stains, mainly because you never know what the stain is. Good explanation on the character dying over breaking up. I went back and forth on that one.
