Where I share my love of books with reviews, features, giveaways and memes. Family and needlepoint are thrown in from time to time.

BBAW: Me and My Reading Habits

Always a day late and a dollar short - that is me lately! This meme was yesterday's - but thought it would be fun anyway!

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
I love pretzels or popcorn - so I would have to say that yes, I occasionally snack while I read - Unless I am in bed!

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of
writing in books horrify you?
I don't usually write in books - more because I don't want to teach my kids to write in books, as they cannot always differentiate between what we own and what the library owns. . .

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?
Laying the book flat open?
I love bookmarks and have a ton to choose from. I will dog-ear a book though if there is a word on a page that I need to look up.

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?
I read both fiction and non-fiction - just depends upon my mood.

Hard copy or audiobooks?
I wish that I would have discovered audiobooks while I was working, as I could have used the distraction while in the car - Unfortunately, as much as I would like to listen to audio books now, my chances to do this are limited - so I am more a hard copy person.

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 really need to have ending points. I really hate it when and author writes really loooooong chapters.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
Nope - I dog-ear the page usually and look it up later.

What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading The Treasures of Venice, Millie's Fling, and In the Arms of Immortals.

What is the last book you bought?
I have absolutely no idea! I pick up a lot of books at library sales and garage sales...

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 am currently reading 3 so I guess that covers this question!

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
Does the bathroom count? Just kidding - well, a little - I would love to have a favorite, but right now it is whenever I can grab a few minutes. I do enjoy sitting in the shade in the afternoon waiting for my son's bus and reading.
Toilet Reading

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?
I love books that are in series!

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
Not really - my favorite book is usually the one that I am currently reading!

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
My review books are organized in the order they need to be read - my "other" books are organized by author. When I was young I even went so far as to organize my books by publisher one day when I was bored.

I don't know how you can read 3 books at one time! Your bathroom answer made me laugh!

I too can read several books at a time.

I often have 2 or more books going at the same time. Does take me longer to read them but I just can't help it!

My mom also likes to read on the toilet--I remember reading once that a vast majority of smart people read on the toilet. Personally, I was never into it that much--but then I share a bathroom with 3 people. :P
