BBAW: You and Your Reading Habits
This is a meme - which I actually meant to do yesterday but my connection was sketchy - from BBAW regarding reading habits.
Answer one of the following questions or all of them in as few words as possible.
Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
Yep. Ginger Ale & Chips
Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
Dog-ear favorite passages, highlighter only for school.
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?
Both, often at the same time.
Laying the book flat open?
Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?
Hard copy or audiobooks?
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?
Can put it down any moment, doesn't mean I will.
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
Depends on the word.
What are you currently reading?
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart.
What is the last book you bought?
Death by Denim by Lisa Gerber.
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, two books at a time.
Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
Anytime is good, places: the bus.
Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?
Shortish series or stand alones. Don't like LONG series.
Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
The Bard Academy Series by Cara Lockwood, those books don't get enough credit!
How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
By how much I like them, books I didn't like too much go to higher, harder to reach shelves. Fave books go within arm reach, usually grouped by author, series and chronological order.
