Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack? I tend to much on carrots or celery1.
Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you? I’ll bend down the corner of a page but I’ll never write or highlight. How can I swap them then? (One of the benefits of a Kindle is that you can highlight passages and type your own notes. Haha, Caite!)
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open? Dog-ears. (I’m assuming that is bending down the corner of a page, right? Cuz that is what I do.)
Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? Both!
Hard copy or audiobooks? I can only listen to audio books when driving — ALONE — in my car or exercising. And since I barely exercise since the end of the Game On Diet, I’m going with Hard Copy.
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? End of chapters — unless there is an “emergency” (as defined by my persistent and very vocal son) that forces me to stop earlier.
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? No — I’m totally lazy like that.
What are you currently reading? Creating A Charmed Life by Victoria Moran
What is the last book you bought? Where The Mountain Casts Its Shadow: The Dark Side of Extreme Adventure by Maria Coffey
Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time? One book at a time, baby!
Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read? Any time I can squeeze it in. I’m not picky.
Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? No real preference … but I prefer series authors who know when to quit. (I’m talking to you Patricia Cornwell!).
Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? I think everyone would love Bill Bryson, and I’m always telling people to try The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger.
How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) Only I understand how they are organized, and I’m not telling.
1 My answer above was a total lie. Sucking on a Dove Dark Chocolate Promise is more my snack of choice. But ever since The Chocolate Dripping Incident of 2008, I tend not to snack when I read.
