Wow what a great set of questions and a tough set as well. I also do not go to the library much although at one time I did. The condition of the books there always makes me sad.
Question 43 for me would be that there are times I am into a book that my husband decides he wants to talk about his day. I could spend hours with him and no real conversation, but pick up a book and really want to get into it, and then he wants to chat. Cute but sometimes annoying.
Have a great day.

That's dedication to never stop reading a book - I love reading but there are several books I just couldn't finish!

I am now going to do this questionnaire *is a sucker for questionnares* XD
