BBAW: Reading Meme

Pin It


Another day of BBAW activities! Today we answer a few questions. I'm answering all with as few words as possible.

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


Anything chocolate.

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

It's horrifying!

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?
Laying the book flat open?

Usually a bookmark, or any piece of paper handy but I do lay them flat sometimes.

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?

Both, but more fiction.

Hard copy or audiobooks?

Usually 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?

Since I'm interrupted often- any point.

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

No, I'm terrible for that.

What are you currently reading?

Of Human Bondage

What is the last book you bought?

Er, some used books: The Flying Troutmans, The Black Donnellys and I can't remember.

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 usually have 2 or 3 on the go.

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

Anytime, anywhere.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?

Stand alones.


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

Carol Shields is one I'm usually telling people to read.

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

Organize? I try to keep them in order of when I need to read them.

  1. It always amazes me when someone can read multiple books at a time. I'm too distractable to be able to focus my attention across more than one. Kudos to you!

  3. I read On Human Bondage last year. A difficult read but worth it!

  5. I'm glad to know other people don't look up words while they're reading. I really never have. I probably should though, LOL.

  6. I'm with you on reading several books at once, but I haven't read the author you recommend or Of Human Bondage. Thanks.

  7. Carol Shields? Ick! :) I know, I know--I've heard such great things about her. Stone Diaries didn't do it for me.

    I'm also too lazy to look up words while reading.

  8. I'm not smart enough to read more than one book at a time.

  11. I think I bought a Carol Shields book at a library sale a while back. I'll have to look for it.

    Mmm...I could use some chocolate right about now.

  12. I sometimes have to stop mid-sentence because of an interruption. I really hate it when that happens. It's been fun reading everyone's answers to this meme. As you can see I'm still trying to play catch up. I hope you are enjoying your week.
