Book Questions from Book Bloggers Appreciation Week

Posted by Caitie F on September 16, 2009

I am not officially part of the Book Bloggers Appreciation Week, but I think this is a fun survery, so I thought I would do it!

Today’s writing prompt is to answer some questions about reading — but with as few words as possible.

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

Usually I don’t, if I do it is pretzels…or whatever I am eating for lunch!

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

I would never mark up a book as I read, it horrifies me, especially when people have done it in a library book!

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

It depends. Right now, I am reading three books and one is laying open one is dog-eared, and one has a bookmark!

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?

Both! I read more fiction, but I like both!

Hard copy or audiobooks?

Hard copy, I am not a fan of audio 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 usually read to the end of a chapter, but I can put it down at any point if I am tired, something comes up, ect.

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

No, I usually can figure it out in context, if not I will check later.

What are you currently reading?

Wolves of Calla by Stephen King
Ruminations on twentysomething Life by Aaron Karo
Emma by Jane Austen

What is the last book you bought?

The Other Queen by Phillippa Gregory

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

As shown before, multiple!

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

Not really, I like reading in bed and out in the sun.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?

No preference

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

I tell everyone to try all of the John Green books.

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

It’s complicated!
