BBAW Reading Meme


Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you? I will occasionally write in a non-fiction book that I might want to refer to later.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? I have a metal bookmark my kids gave me for Christmas that I love. Laying the book flat open? If it's an old paperback.

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? Anytime, anywhere.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? Not usually.

What are you currently reading? The Big Rock Candy Mountain by Wallace Stegner and Don't Judge a Girl By Her Cover by Ally Carter.

What is the last book you bought? The Hourglass Door by Lisa Mangum

Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time? If I'm reading shorter books, usually one at a time. But, if I'm involved in something longer, I will usually have another book on the side as a break.

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) I used to have them split by non-fiction and fiction. The fictions books were alphabetized and the non-fiction was organized sort of by Dewey number. Now I just have the books I need to read on the lower shelves and the books I've read on the higher shelves and everything is a jumbled mess.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who writes in books on occasion!

I love to hear about other double-bookers. Sometimes I need a break from what I'm reading, too. :-)
