BBAW: Reading Habits

Today’s it’s all about the creativity. We have this fabulous reading meme for you below and all you have to do? Pick ONE or answer them all in as few words as possible! Be creative, have fun, stand out! That’s all!

I chose to answer all with fewer words. I am just not a creative creature but I'll do my best.

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?

Surprisingly, I do not.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?

I don't write in books, only because marking reminds me of college times.
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?

Always a bookmark or at least some old store receipt.

Laying the book flat open?

Yes, I do that sometimes if I know I'm coming back in a sec.

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?

It would have to be fiction.

Hard copy or audiobooks?

Both. Audio books are from library and hard copies I own.

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 I have troubles reading a book, then I read to the end of chapters. Otherwise, I tend to keep reading until it's done.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?

Not usually.

What are you currently reading?

The Big Rock Candy Mountain by Wallace Stegner

What is the last book you bought?

Theirs Was the Kingdom by R. F. Delderfield

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

One book at a time. I tried it the other way and it doesn't work.

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?

Any place, any time.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?

Series books or at least authors who wrote more than one book.

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?

Author: Stephen King
Book: Shantaram by Gregory Roberts

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

I don't organize books. I would love to though but I just procrastinate too much.
