BBAW - Reading Habits Meme
The book bloggers appreciation week is hosting the following meme - if you wish to join in check it out here
Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack? - Sure do-I'm a muncher, I love crunchy things like popcorn
Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of
writing in books horrify you? - the only book I write in is my bible
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open? - usually dog-ears, sometimes flat open
Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? Mostly fiction, but I love biographical writing
Hard copy or audiobooks? hard copy
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 try to get to the end of the chapter, but late night my eyes don't always cooperate with me
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? nope
What are you currently reading? Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran
What is the last book you bought? I bought 4 at once: Ginger, my Story by Ginger Rogers, Light on Snow by Anita Shreve, Weight of Water by Anita Shreve and It's not About me by Max Lucado
Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can
you read more than one at a time? I have 3 on the go now - one that's my main read, the Max Lucado which is more of a devotional and Vanity Fair which I've been working my way through this year
Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read? I can read anywhere, anytime, but my favorite time is when my kids are in bed, sleeping, everything is ready in the house for the next day and I can just relax
Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? I read more stand alone books, but I like when characters connect in books, not necessarily series. Sometimes authors will use the same characters in future books (like Jodi Picoult). My current favorite series is the No. Ladies Detective Agency books.
Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? Sure, I love Francine Rivers and Margaret George. I find Margaret George is a master at historical fiction and I'm always amazed when people haven't heard of her.
How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) I don't, I keep books by the same author together, but my bookshelves aren't organized alphabetically or anything. I used to be more anal about this when I was a kid.
