BBAW - Reading Habits Questionnaire

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Because I can't choose just one question to answer, and I can't possibly answer them without RAMBLING... I'm going to do half of the questionnaire today, and half tomorrow. Or, you know. Whenever. Because I am a bad blogger.
leave your answers to these questions in the comments, or post the answers to your blog and leave a link here.

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
I try to avoid snacking whenever possible! If I didn't, I would surely weigh about 600 lbs by now...

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of
writing in books horrify you?
WHY? Why in the name of all that is good in the world would you defile a book that way? I even hated marking my text books in college.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?
I mark my place with any random piece of paper that I find lying around. Reciepts, tissue, a corner torn from a piece of notebook paper, whatever.

Laying the book flat open?
DO YOU WANT TO DIE? No? Then don't you dare do any of these things to my books. Seriously, people.

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?
I like to read Non-fiction occasionally, but I really love fiction. For non-fiction I would rather watch a documentary than read a book.

Hard copy or audiobooks? I always prefer a hard copy, nothing compares to the feel of a book in your hand. But since I had my second child I have grown to love audiobooks for their convenience. Who has time to actually sit and read every book that's on their TBR list? Not me.

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've had to learn to stop at any point, because sometimes poopy diapers just can't wait.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
No, I can usually figure out the meaning by the context. But if it's a really perplexing word then I definitely look it up.

Some of your answers were great and made me laugh out loud. :) (especially about leaving the book flat open).

I guess I want to die. I leave my books laying open/flat all the time. :)
