BBAW Day 3: Reading meme
Today’s assignment is a reading meme. I’m going to try to answer these questions as briefly as possible, although the recommended five words or less is pretty hard!
Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
Chocolate (if I do snack, which is rarely).
Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
I’m horrified by the idea!
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying
the book flat open?
Bookmark (although many things serve as bookmarks in my world!)
Fiction, nonfiction, or both?
More fiction but both.
Hard copy or audiobooks?
Hard copy only.
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 possible I read to the end of chapters (or sections of some kind).
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
Nope, but I do write it down and look it up later. (I blame Kathy for this habit!)
What are you currently reading?
Fingerprints of God: The Search for the Science of Spirituality by Barbara Bradley Hagerty
Why I Hate Saturn by Kyle Baker
What is the last book you bought?
The Likeness by Tana French
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 one, sometimes two, very rarely more.
Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
At night in bed probably, although I read just about anywhere.
Do you prefer series books or standalone books?
Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
Most recently, I’ve recommended No One You Know by Michelle Richmond to quite a few people, as well as Skim by Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki
How do you organize your books (by genre, title, author’s last name, etc.)?
By genre then alphabetically by author and by title.
