BBAW: Reading Meme

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
Yes! Usually it’s whatever I find in the kitchen or what sounds good at the moment.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
What?! Books aren’t cheap, so why would I want to mark them up?

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
Bookmark! I hate when people dog-ear the pages – that should be a crime. And if you lay a book flat open, that just ruins the binding.

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?

Hard copy or audio-books?
Nothing beats having the actually book in your hands. But audio-books can be nice for long drives or while cleaning the house (ugh!)

Are you a person who tends to read to the end of chapters, or are you able to put a book down at any point?
Unless within the chapter there is a break, I have to read to the end. Otherwise, when I start back up I tend to forget what happened. Then I have to back-track.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
Why yes I do!

What are you currently reading?
Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles

What is the last book you bought?
Hate List by Jennifer Brown

Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time?
Usually just one at a time. If I read more then one then I'm like what? which book did this happen in?

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
I like to read where ever that is peace and quiet! I do a lot of my reading late in the day and at night.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?
I like them both, but stand alone novels don't leave me hanging at the end, plus I don't have to wait a year to find out what happens :)

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
By the author's last name. I have so many books and that's the easiest way for me to find the one I want.
