So I was reading The Story Siren and Renae had this fantastic post on reader habits from a questionnaire on StoryWings.
It sounded so fun I knew I had to play. :)
Do you snack while you read? If so, favourite reading snack:
I don't tend to snack while I read. Okay, sometimes if I'm in on my own (and I have to finish the book) then I eat my dinner reading, but I like to be really careful. I hate messy books.
What is your favourite drink while reading?
Tea. I'm such a typical Brit. :)
Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
Are you crazy? If it is a non-fiction/study book or something then yes. Would I write in a novel? No way.
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
I'm a bookmark or scrap of paper kind of a girl. I can't do the dog-ear thing. *shudders.*
Fiction, non-fiction, or both?
It depends on my mood. I'm big on fiction at the moment.
Are you a person who tends to read to the end of a chapter, or can you stop anywhere?
I prefer to read until the end of a chapter.
Are you the type of person to throw a book across the room or on the floor if the author irritates you?
No. But I have the unfortunate habit of dropping other things on a regular basis. :)
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away?
Not usually. I may note it and look it up later, but I tend to carry on reading.
What are you currently reading?
Blood Promise by Richelle Mead.
What is the last book you bought?
It was 3 for 2 at the bookstore, so I couldn't resist: Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce, Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles and Waves by Sharon Dogar.
Are you the type of person that reads one book at a time, or can you read more than one?
I try and read one at a time, but I can read more than one. If I'm really enjoying a book or series - like the Vampire Academy one I'm reading at the moment - then I read one at a time.
Do you have a favourite time/place to read?
I read anytime I can. I like to read before I go to sleep. So I guess my favourite place is to read on my bed.
Do you prefer series books or stand alones?
I'm in series mode at the moment but it wasn't a conscious choice. It just so happens that the books I've bought have been series ones.
Is there a specific book or author you find yourself recommending over and over?
I recommend most books I read but mainly Maggie Stiefvater, Richelle Mead, Suzanne Collins. There are loads more though.
How do you organise your books? (by genre, title, author's last name, etc.)
My books are arranged in series order. I'm not into alphabetising or anything like that, but I like to keep them in size order. I can't stand a tall book next to a little one and then another tall one. Okay I'm a freak. :)
