Today’s meme for Book Blogger Appreciation Week is a list of questions, and the name of the game is to keep it brief (like five words brief). I made a concerted effort to keep it short, but in some cases I couldn’t help myself, and there were some that I really had to keep from writing a short dissertation on (like folding pages, writing in books, laying them flat – if you read my post To Break or Not to Break That is the Question you already have some insight into my thoughts on this, haha).
So here goes …
Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
Not usually, but occasionally Cheerios
Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
Slightly horrified, only use flags
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?
OMG, seriously?! Bookmark (or its equivalent)
Laying the book flat open?
Nope, that would break the spine
Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?
Hard copy or audiobooks?
Audiobook, what’s an audiobook?
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 you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
No, but I really should
What are you currently reading?
Well four books but this morning it was an ARC of The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood
What is the last book you bought?
Actually there were two: My Life in France by Julia Child and Dracula by Bram Stoker (but hitting the store today for a book by a Mr. Brown, maybe you have heard of him??)
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 can, but not totally successfully
Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
Morning at the gym
Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?
If I really like the characters I love series books, although I am quite impatient to wait for the next.
Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
Recently it seems to be the Millennium Trilogy books by Steig Larsson ( The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and the upcoming – which I have not read but can hardly wait – The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest)
How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
If I’m trying – by height
