Booking Through Thursday 11
Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme which asks a bookish question which you have to answer. This weeks question is:
If you’re like me, you grew up reading everything under the sun, like the cereal boxes while you ate your breakfast, the newspapers held by strangers on the subway, the tabloid headlines at the grocery store. What’s the oddest thing you’ve ever read? (You know, something NOT a book, magazine, short story, poem or article.)
I'm not all that fussy - if it's got words on it I'll read it. Although I usually have a book with me so it's not really necessary for me to read lots of crazy stuff. I do however have a slight obsession with reading the backs of containers - cleaning products, beauty products, food products, etc. I love to know what's in things and I love to read the big long chemical words out loud just to figure out how they are pronounced. I also love instruction manuals. My family usually rely on me to figure out how things work and how to set things up as I am the only one who will read the manuals. Oh another thing I like to do is read the labels on clothes and towels - don't ask me why I don't really care about how to wash them I just like reading them. Oh another one - receipts, I like to read receipts again I don't know why I just do. OK so apparently I do read lots of crazy stuff! I have never been able to not read so I really can't help myself.
That's all for now.
