BBAW Reading Meme


We're supposed to keep our answers brief- five words or less. Ha. To see links to other bloggers' responses, you can go to BookBloggerAppreciationWeek.com.

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack? Tea and a homemade scone.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you? Sometimes. It doesn't bother me.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? I dog-ear with wild abandon.

Laying the book flat open? No.

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? Mainly fiction.

Hard copy or audiobooks? Hard copy, please. No audio or e-books.

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 can stop anywhere.

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

What are you currently reading? Official Book Club Selection, by Kathy Griffin, and still working through The Hakawati by Rabih Alameddine.

What is the last book you bought? The Jewish Husband, by Lia Levi.

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 can read several books at once.

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read? At coffeeshops any time of day.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? Stand-alone. I'm not a series person.

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? It depends. Everyone's taste is different.

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) I organize books roughly by genre and from there it's all a jumble. If I had a house with tons of bookshelves I'd love to really work on a great system of organization. It's the librarian in me.
