BBAW: Reading Meme

Today's Book Blogger Appreciation Week task is a meme.

We encourage you to be creative with this! Please choose one or two questions to answer or try to answer all the questions in five words or less. Or choose a picture to answer a question! Brevity is the goal of today!

Do you snack while you read? Only in the afternoon. If so, favorite reading snack? Crackers, nuts and candy.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you? Pristine books make me happy.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open? Bookmarks, bookmarks everywhere.

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? More fiction than non-fiction.

Hard copy or audiobooks? No audiobooks ... not a commuter.

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? Kids don't wait for chapters.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? Only when it affects plot.

What are you currently reading? Another big honkin' Delderfield.

What is the last book you bought? Four from Powell's.

Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time? A one book gal.

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read? Anytime and anywhere it's quiet.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? I like stories to last.

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? Jasper Fforde, The Eyre Affair

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) By subject and whim.

  1. Fantastic! I love our similar chapter answers ... though I think your answer was better. I just use too many words!!!

  2. I so want to curl up under a thick blanket now. Fall cannot come soon enough!

  3. "The Eyre Affair" is a great recommendation. I loves that book. The rest of the series is good too, but the first book remains my favorite.

  4. Great answers. Organize books?? what is that ?? LOL

  5. Great answers - I did it here:

  6. Lucky you to be moving on to the next Delderfield. I have his God is an Englishman on my TBR pile, but I need to finish a few other books before starting it.
