BBAW 09 Day 3: Reading Meme

Day 3: Today’s it’s all about the creativity. We have this fabulous reading meme for you below and all you have to do? Pick ONE or answer them all in as few words as possible! Be creative, have fun, stand out! That’s all!

Do you snack while you read?
Peanut M&M's - but they never last as long as the book!

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
EGADS! I mean No -- but on both counts.

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

M&M bags -- the empties!

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?

Both.

Hard copy or audiobooks?

98% 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?
I only stop when I fall asleep.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? Oxford English Dictionary. Compact edition (4x4x3).


What are you currently reading?

NO WIND TO BLAME by Georgette Heyer; DECONSTRUCTING SAMMY by Matt Birkbeck; VELVA JEAN LEARNS TO DRIVE by Jennifer Niven.

What is the last book you bought?

NOTHING BUT GHOSTS by Beth Kephart and CAPOTE by Gerald Clarke.

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

See above.

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

In bed -- before I sleep, in the middle of the night, and in the morning when I first wake up. (Get your mind out of the gutter!)

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?

I like both, but I like a series to end eventually.

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

TALLGRASS by Sandra Dallas; WATER FOR ELEPHANTS by Sara Gruen; Sharon Kay Penman, Lisa See, Peter Robinson, Ann Hood,

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

As long as I can find them when I want them, I'm good.

Oh, I loved Water for Elephants, too! I also really enjoyed Ann Hood's The Knitting Circle. I'll have to check out more of her work.

I am dying to read Velva Jean Learns to Drive...Can't wait for your review.
Mmmm, Peanut M&M's DO sound like a wonderful treat to eat while reading!

Amy said...

OOOoooo Peanut M&Ms, now those are good! I couldn't eat them everytime though...but it would be nice! You put the bags to good use!

Water for Elephants is a great book. Capote is such an interesting book.
How do you like Velva Jean Learns to Drive?

Great meme :o)

I'm with you on the M & M's, but I prefer the peanut butter ones.

No snack can last as long as the book! I keep making tea for myself!

My husband takes that falling asleep thing one step further. He only stops reading when he falls so soundly asleep that the falling book hitting the floor wakes him up.

Anna said...

I hate falling asleep with my books. I wake up having rolled on top of them and squished the covers. LOL

If I ate peanut m&m's while I read, well, I probably wouldn't fit into the house. Because they are like popcorn for me. In fact, I don't even allow myself to buy them anymore!
