I love reading and if we had a bigger place I would have more books. I have I don't know how many at mom's which will probably stay there unless someone comes over here with them. I wish we had more space for books, but unless we want to be sitting on them instead of the couch its not happening (see I wouldn't have a problem sitting on the books, but I think other people might be afraid the tower of books they are sitting on would fall over and its not a good thing when guest need to be rushed to A&E with a bump on the head)
Decided to fill out this little meme type thing that I saw over at Jenaveve's blog :)
Do you snack while you read? If so, favourite reading snack?
I use to, big sweet tooth. but now not so much.
Do you tend to mark your books as you read them, or does the idea of writing on your books horrify you?
If its mine I sometimes mark it, especially if its an interesting part. If its a library book no, seen enough library books vandalised to not want to mark them (in what world is it funny to draw a penis in the margins of a book on knitting?)
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog ears? Leaving the book open flat?
usually a bookmark, but business cards work too. my actual library card works too if nothing else is around.
Fiction, Non-Fiction or both?
hmm usually fiction, but love reading about ancient history
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 fall asleep its where ever the book falls (often on my feet if I'm sitting on the floor with a loud thud). I try to read to the end of a chapter just so I'm not lost next time I read the book.
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
sometimes. usually I can figure out any word I don't know by the words around it.
What are you currently reading?
um nothing right now....oh no wait started The Secret Life of Evie Hamilton the other day
What is the last book you bought?
We are broke so the library is our friend :D but it was Labyrinth for 50p from the charity shop.
Are you the type of person who can only read one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time?
Usually I have about 3 books going at once, one for the living room, one for bed and one for school.
Do you prefer series or stand alone books?
Both as long as the series doesn't go on forever (hmm Wheel of Time springs to mind...too long)
Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
no actually. If I've read a good book I will tell someone, but usually only when someone asks. I might think a book or author is great but someone else might think they are crap :p
How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
where ever they will fit on the shelf :p
