I saw this over at Book Crazy and I’m always a sucker for things like this so here goes!
Do you snack while you read? If so, favourite reading snack:
No. I’m a little bit of a clean freak. We only eat in the kitchen and I usually read in the living room. But I do read while eating lunch and dinner 95% of the time.
What is your favourite drink while reading?
Hmmm coffee? No, I usually drink my coffee at the computer(like right now). Water then. I’m a very boring person.
Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
Yeah…..that horrifies me just a bit. Who does that? We have to highlight things in books in school and I think it honestly killed me just a little bit inside every time.
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
Definitely bookmarks!! I have them lying around everywhere. I have big ones for hardbacks and small ones for paperbacks! I dog eared until about 2 years ago. Now I don’t see how I ever did it!
Fiction, non-fiction, or both?
Fiction!! I read to escape. I read a non-fiction maybe once a year. I’ve already read mine for this year! Eating Animals by Johnathon Safran Foer. Changed my life!
Are you a person who tends to read to the end of a chapter, or can you stop anywhere?
I prefer to read to the end of the chapter. It doesn’t always happen but oh well. I must be at the end of a chapter before bed though. I might die if I’m not!
Are you the type of person to throw a book across the room or on the floor if the author irritates you?
I don’t think I’ve ever thrown a book. And I can only think of one instance where I was so mad I slammed the book shut(without a bookmark *gasp*). Do you want to know what it was? Okay I’ll tell you….it was in Eclipse! When Bella kisses Jacob. I was sooo mad but when I read it back now I’m “kiss him kiss him!!!”
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away?
No, I’m pretty good at context clues.
What are you currently reading?
Spell Hunter(Faery RebelS # 1) by R.J. Anderson
What is the last book you bought?
Yesterday I ordered 4 from Amazon!! I ordered As You Wish by Jackson Pearce and I preordered: Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce(awesome book! Had to preorder it for the book release party in ATL!) Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead and my second copy of The Sort Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer. I already have it preordered at the bookstore too but this one will be for the Twilight Takeover giveaway! The last book that I actually physically bought was The Summer Turned Pretty by Jenny Han.
Are you the type of person that reads one book at a time, or can you read more than one?
I ‘m a one book kinda girl. There’s not much for me to try to read two at a time. I would just end up liking one more and just reading it until the end…..so no point for me!
Do you have a favourite time/place to read?
I usually get the most reading done in the morning. After I decide to turn off the computer and before my hubby gets up for work. I always seem to finish books around 10 or 11.
Do you prefer series books or stand alones?
If you would have asked me this a year ago I would have said series!! Now I’m not so sure. I love both!
Is there a specific book or author you find yourself recommending over and over?
Most of the people I know in real life aren’t readers so they haven’t read the greats! These are usually people that have read Twilight and realize how awesome books are. So I’m always recommending The Hunger Games and Shiver. If it’s a person serious about reading I recommend The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.
How do you organize your books? (by genre, title, author’s last name, etc.)
I organize mine by favorites lol. I put my most loved on the entertainment center in the living room(Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games, Graceling etc…)the rest are on my one bookcase or in tubs under my bed. 🙁 On my bookcase, I have my favorites on the top rows.
