I'm a sucker for random questions so I can't help myself but answer all of them.
Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
All the time I can't help it. Normally it's stuff like popcorn or chips. Lately it's been a lot more plums, Havarti and salami, Havarti and pears, Havarti and crackers. I'm on a weird Havarti kick right now. I also tend to like cucumbers and radishes with a little ranch dressing.
Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?Laying the book flat open?
Bookmarks all the way. I used to dog ear when I was younger but I am now out of that stage. Every once in a while I will set the book down open but I try not to do that too much.
Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?
Both, though the non-fiction I read tends to be either about politics or autobiographies.
Hard copy or audio books?
I haven't done a lot of audio books because the only time I would listen to them except in the car and then it's mainly on NPR.
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?
Just whenever I'm done reading for the period of time. If their is something really big going on I will try to get to the end of that part, but if I'm too tired I can hold off for a while.
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
Only if I can't figure it out by the context of the passage it's in.
What are you currently reading?
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
What is the last book you bought?
3 of them from the Dollar Tree: A Shadow in Summer by Daniel Abraham, Monster by Frank Peretti, and Manor House: As Seen on Public Television by
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 tend to read through multiple books at a time though my main focus is on one.
Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
Whenever or wherever I can.
Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?
Both. I love series because if I love a certain character/characters I want more of them. Stand alones do a really good job or getting you to care about characters right away.
Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
Agatha Christie has to be the one author I push on everyone. A few of the books would be Pandemonium by Daryl Gregory, The Thief of Always by Clive Barker, and The Last Herald Mage trilogy by Mercedes Lackey.
How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
When they are organized I try to do the fiction by author's last name and have the non-fiction sorted by subject in alphabetical order.
