BBAW Meme-Thing

Today’s BBAW task is a kind of meme. In short:

Please choose one or two questions to answer or try to answer all the questions in five words or less. Or choose a picture to answer a question! Brevity is the goal of today!

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack? Not ususally.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you? Two words: library books. Also: it horrifies my husband.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Book darts.

Laying the book flat open? Sometimes

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? Both

Hard copy or audiobooks? 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? Depends on how demanding my kids are.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? Nope. I’m all about context.

What are you currently reading? Three books at the same time.

What is the last book you bought? Catching Fire.

Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time? Used to be one; see above for now.

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read? All day, anywhere.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? Stand alone.

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? Shannon Hale. Love her stuff.

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

  1. Oh c'mon– no marking even in the books you own?? I love returning to an old fave and seeing what my reactions were when I read it last… sometimes I still agree, and other times I wonder, 'what was I thinking???' πŸ™‚

    And, the book darts look really, really cool!! I've used the sticky note arrows like that in the past, but they lose their stickiness after several moves.


  2. Re: Writing in Books
    This is the most amusing part of buying used books. I can usually ignore the writing in the margins, but sometimes people write the weirdest things. One time I saw “Campbell's Soup!” written in a Virginia Woolf book…in a section that had nothing to do with food.
