Tuesday Topics–3 Favorite Past Topics and Literary Junkies Link Up

Before I get to today’s regularly scheduled post, I wanted to share this movie trailer:

This movie, THE SHORT GAME follows the lives of eight of the best 7-year old golfers in the world as they train for and compete in the World Championships of Junior Golf. The annual tournament held at golfing mecca Pinehurst, North Carolina, brings in 1500 young golfers from 54 different countries and determines who will be crowned golfs next phenom. In its course, the eight stories entwine to form a fascinating and often funny portrait of a group of very young athletes and their families, in which the narrow-focused, peculiar and highly competitive junior golf subculture becomes both a window into contemporary global society and an inspiring reflection of the human condition. The Short Game is opening in theaters on September 20th, so be sure to check it out!


As you know I’ve been doing Tuesday Topics posts for months now, so I have a lot to choose from for my top 3 past topics! Here are my favorites:

9 Things I Won’t Change My Mind On – A little bit controversial, a lot about my opinions.

4 Things About Me – Just a bit about me to get to know me better!

1 Guilty Pleasure – My all time favorite post that came about via Tuesday Topics. It’s about Mommy Guilt.

I usually include my Literary Junkies questions in my What I’ve Been Reading posts which go up on Fridays, but I will be offline for the next two Fridays, so I’m linking up today!

1. What are you currently reading? Tell us about it.

I am currently reading Painted Hands by Jennifer Zobair. Stay tuned for my review on October 4th, but so far I’m loving it!

2. Autumn is coming! What's your go-to drink when curling up with a book at night?

I normally don’t drink while I’m reading, but hot chocolate sounds great for that!

3. Printed books vs. e-books: What are the pros and cons of each?

I pretty much only read printed books. There is a big reason for that too and that is Shabbat. I read the most on Shabbat and I don’t use electronics on Shabbat, so I need my books in print! Plus, there is that lovely feeling of a real book in my hand that I would miss if I gave it up.

4. Buying books vs. library books: Which do you prefer and why?

I most often use the library, mostly because I don’t like to spend money on a book if I don’t know if I will love it. I tend to buy used books or get them through swaps if I do have my own copy. I like having books that I can lend to my friends, but overall I prefer to get my books at the library.

How about you? Printed vs. ebooks? Buying vs. library? Let me know!

I used to love print books, but then I got a Nook first and then my iPad, so it is just so much more convenient to read on and purchase books on my iPad if and when I do, but like you I loved print books and never thought I would make this switch. Like I said though, it is more for convenience sake now then anything.

I still love both...real books and my Kindle. Although I will always be a real book lover. ;) I like to know how many pages are left and that little percentage thing at the bottom just doesn't give me that same emotion. :) I added your link to the link up. Not sure why the technical difficulties but it's working on my blog and hopefully Lesley's blog soon.

I go back and forth between the library and the book store - right now I am at book shelf capacity so it's all about the library!

Dara said...

I can imagine it is more convenient...I'm just not ready to make the switch!

Dara said...

thank you for linking up for me!

Dara said...

lol book shelf capacity! you have to trade out some of your books, that's what I do!

To me books are trophies - a sign of what I read! Every now and then I weed out ones that I can part with, but I love being able to show people what I have loved, etc - a lot of the shelves are some kid books too from my childhood or ones to share with my class!

I love both printed and E-books, E-books help me take my favorite books on vacations with me without carrying 3-5 different books.
I do used books or trade with my father who's an avid reader like I am and luckily we have the same taste in books. :)♥

I'm a printed book girl. I realized it took me three times as long to finish a book on my iPad than a regular book. I just love the feel of a printed book!

I think if I was reading on an ipad I'd probably get distracted by the other things on the ipad!

Dara said...

you're right, they're both good for different reasons!

Leslie said...

Printed books all the way. I used to use the library a lot to save money on books. Now I barely read. I want to get into the habit of reading again.

Dara said...

I know, you should get back into reading! :)

Dara said...

how cool about your dad and brother! the movie does sound good! thanks for stopping by!

brittany said...

oh you're welcome! hahha yes. I am hoping that movie will be in most theaters!

I prefer printed books too. I own a Kindle, but there's nothing like holding an actual book.
