The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.


Have you ever started reading a book and suddenly realized you’ve already read it?

(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer


Back when I only read physical books, it would definitely happen every now and again. I still look at books on my bookshelf and ponder whether or not I ever read them. I can’t think of any specific book, but I’ve always read tons, so it would be pretty remarkable if I did remember a particular title.

But, now, I mostly read ebooks. Both Kindle and Apple Books marks not only if you’ve read a book but if you partially read it – it will show you what the percent read is. I still find myself arguing with my iPad every once in a while thinking I have already read a book that it shows unread but the iPad wins every time 😜

Have you ever started reading a book only to realize you already read it?

  1. Years and years ago, before there was a Goodreads and digital books, I found it difficult to remember sometimes if I’d read a specific book by a favorite, prolific author and would buy a paperback I’d already read. It was rare but without a system it could happen. Today? Not a chance. I am manic about tracking everything related to my books on Goodreads.

  2. Love your gif! My mother in law STILL gets confused. Even with the Kindle. No, I seriously don’t know how…! Like you say, it shows you that it’s read.

    In the days before technology (not THAT long ago) and before spreadsheets and bullet journaling became a thing, you bet that I got confused with what I’ve read and what not. I still get confused with some authors. Especially Mary Higgins Clark!

    There is definite improvement since Goodreads happened though.

    Have a wonderful weekend and here’s my Friday Fives #1

  3. Yes have done definitely done that!!! Was halfway through a book and it felt so familiar as reading felt so familiar when I showed it to one of my friends she was like we read that book together 🙈

  4. I’ve managed to do this even on my kindle. Though usually it’s when the book was so bad that I deleted it from not only my kindle but from the cloud too! Or when I read it as a freebie download, so that it shows as a document. I’ve definitely mistakenly re-read physical books.
