BBAW: Day 3: Reading Meme

Hello, hello!  Welcome to day three of the celebration!  What are we celebrating?  Why it's.....




From the title, you may be wondering what in the world a reading meme is exactly...no worries, I was too!  I had seen the term a few times, but color me silly, I had no clue what it meant!  So, guess where I went to find out?  GOOGLE, of course!  With the myriad of assistance sites that came up I chose Quixtar Blog:  Blogging 101.  According to their entry, a blog meme is something that requires the blogger to participate, but does not have an originating source....and is generally a listing of questions used to share personal info.  (Hmmm....Captain Obvious anyone?)  I mean I gathered that much from this activity posted for today, but alas, that seems to be the most concrete definition I could find!  All of you with inquiring minds out there....you'll just have to focus your energy on the rest of this post.  (Nice segway to get you to read on, huh?)  Learn a little more about my preferred reading habits and share some of your own!

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack? Try not to, but they make such good dining companions....


Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you? Textbooks, yes...novels, NO!

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark

Laying the book flat open? Hardback, yes...paperback, NO!
Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? MORE fiction, less non.
Hard copy or audiobooks? Hard copy all the way.

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? I can put it down at any point....it doesn't mean I have to like it!

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? Only if I can't figure out the meaning from the surrounding sentences.

What are you currently reading? Better question is what am I reading at this moment! Let's see...I'll let my sidebar answer that....

What is the last book you bought? Fly By Night by Frances Hardinge


Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time? Umm...sidebar shall answer again... (multiple)

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read? Ideal would be a room with just enough light to read, a big overstuffed chair and an unlimited supply of books. Alas, that exists in my dreams alone! usually is wherever I am at the time....

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? BOTH! Depends on my mood....I like to break from reading series with stand alone's.

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? Yes....my own guilty pleasures....The Forbidden Game (trilogy) by L.J. Smith and The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyers.

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) At this point, by box! (Let's just say I need more book cases.) If I had the space, by author.

Everyone needs more space! I too organize by box and shelf. I even have a drawer of books in my dresser.

Belle said...

By box is a good idea - you can stack them up! You're right. Books make such excellent dining companions.

Ah the call of so many book addicts "I need more book cases". It's a universal thing you know.

GMR said...

It's official! After the comments left here and my blog hopping yesterday...everyone agrees they need more space. Hmm, I wonder if bookcases as walls are structurally sound... =0)

I need more space for books too!
