Today’s BBAW topic is a meme! You know I love those. I’m meant to be brief in my responses, but if you want to hear more about anything, just leave a comment.
Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack? I’m usually too focused on what I’m reading to do anything else!
Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you? I’ll mark in books for classes, but not for pleasure reading.
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open? I’ll grab anything handy (bookmark, receipt, credit card) to mark my place.
Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? Fiction. I have a terrible time focusing on non-fiction.
Hard copy or audiobooks? Hard copy. Audiobooks are also a focus problem.
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? If I can, I’ll read to the end of a chapter and then stop, otherwise I’ll just stop where I am and probably start up a few sentences back when I return.
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? If it’s giving me trouble understanding the book, yes. Otherwise I juts hope I’ll remember it for later.
What are you currently reading? Everything in my GoodReads widget to the left there.
What is the last book you bought? Questions and Answers: Knowledge and The Search for Vile Things, both for my brother’s birthday in a couple months.
Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time? I’ll only read one of a type of book at a time, but I can read a non-fiction book and a fiction book at the same time and be okay.
Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read? I take reading time whenever I can get it, but I usually read on our fun room couch or the recliner in our living room.
Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? Series.
Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? The Phantom Tollbooth
How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) I have a few bookshelves, so my books are sorted on to them by status: read and loved (next to my desk), read and not loved, and unread. Within those categories it’s a mess.
