Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
I normally do not snack. I might have a cup of tea, though.
Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of
writing in books horrify you?
I never write in my books. I try to keep them as pristine and new as I can.
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?
Definitely no dog-earred pages. I use an envelope, a picture, a bill, and sometimes I use an actual bookmark. :)
Laying the book flat open?
Never, never, never. Always close the book and mark my place.
Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?
I read both, but prefer fiction.
Hard copy or audiobooks?
Definitely hard copy unless I am in the car, then I like the audio on a long trip or if I am alone driving back and forth from wherever.
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 like to read to the end of a chapter, but if I am too tired, I stop and turn my bookmark sideways indicating where I left off.
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
No...I wait until later or totally forget.
What are you currently reading?
TAHOE TRAP by Todd Borg
What is the last book you bought?
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm - interesting question. I haven't bought a book for ages. I have so many from the BEA this past June, from authors, and publishers, that I don't think I will have to buy a book for the rest of my life. :)
Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can
you read more than one at a time?
Oh...I can only read ONE book at a time.
Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
I love to read in the evening on my porch or at night in the spare bedroom, but if the opportunity comes up, I will read ANY TIME and ANY PLACE.
Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?
I am not in the habit of reading series, but I may at some point.
Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
Oh yes...I always recommend SHADOW OF THE WIND by Carlos Ruiz Zafon and also THE FORGOTTEN GARDEN by Kate Morton.
How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
I have my shelves organized by size and my shelves are also organized by READ, TO BE READ, and MUST BE READ THIS MONTH.
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY AND READING MY ANSWERS.
