My Reading Habits!!!

So I saw this meme over at WORD for Teens as well as other blogs and it looked like soooo much fun so I decided to do it =) Hope you like reading about my wacky reading habits!!!

Do you snack while you read? If so, favourite reading snack:
Not really, I can't hold both a book and chips or something...not cut out for that kind of coordination =) Haha =D

What is your favourite drink while reading?
Either a grande, hot, upside-down caramel machiatto with three sugars from Starbucks or a grande java-chip frappuccino from Starbucks as well =) You can kind of tell I love Starbucks...hehe

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
I will NEVER write on a book...but I do use those really cute teeny post-its sometimes =)

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
Nope! None of those! All of the bookmarks I get, get stuck up on my swag wall in my room which covers a really big wall...I usually just memorize the page number I stopped on. But it's so weird that I always stop on Page 236! Every single time! Isn't that really REALLY creepy?

Fiction, non-fiction, or both?
Fiction all the way...unless it's some sort of expose on the corruption in you've got me hooked =)

Are you a person who tends to read to the end of a chapter, or can you stop anywhere?
I can stop anywhere anytime...unless I'm reading a SUPER good book...then I tend to bite =D

Are you the type of person to throw a book across the room or on the floor if the author irritates you?
Nope, I just start yelling at the book...happens sometimes; especially in public places...people think I'm crazzzzy...hehe, maybe I am =)

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away?
I almost always am able to figure out the word based on its context...skillzzzz right? LOL.

What are you currently reading?
I'm reading two books:
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White (FREAKING AMAZING)
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer (LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT DUDES!)

What is the last book you bought?
Just bought Gimme A Call by Sarah Mlynowski and Eternal by Cynthia Leitich Smith

Are you the type of person that reads one book at a time, or can you read more than one?
Sometimes one, but mostly two...Never three though..

Do you have a favourite time/place to read?
My bed, my beanbag, or the bathroom...weird eh?

Do you prefer series books or stand alones?
Both...really depends on the genre and quality...there are ENOUGH Vampire series...hehe...I LOOOVE Vampire Academy though =)

Is there a specific book or author you find yourself recommending over and over?
Siren by Tricia Rayburn, Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus, Tension of Opposites by Kristina McBride, She's so Dead to Us by Kieran Scott, Winter Longing by Tricia Mills, The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller, Nightshade by Andrea Cremer, Paranormalcy by Kiersten White...LOTS of recommend-worthy books =)

How do you organize your books? (by genre, title, author's last name, etc.)
This is where my OCD comes in! I organize by series (if it is a series), then by type (hardcover or paperback), then by height, then by color. I RAGE when people mess it up! LOL!

I'm so jealous of Paranormalcy... I'm super excited for it! :) And I've just finished VA book four, and loving those too- can't wait for the Spirit Bound trailer to get onto a website where UK users can actually see it.

Great post! I'm jealous, you're reading Paranormalcy AND Nightshade!

Totally fun to see your answers. I did this meme as well

Natalie W May 14, 2010 at 2:35 AM  

Love all your answers and I'm with you, I never write in a book! And I don't dog ear the pages either. I have a thing for damaging a book. It MUST stay in perfect condition LOL!
Natalie :0)

Awesome! I think I might do this too! :)

I so totally recognize her reading habits!!

Raíla May 14, 2010 at 8:37 AM  

Aw, LOL. It's such a fun meme. Loved it and looking forward to do it as well. I'm very similiar to you in terms of organizing the books, lol. And, yes, baby, I think you're a little bit crazy. Just a little, I promise. Hahaha! But I love it how you're always really excited to blog. :-)

Cute meme. I'm a little like you in your book organization. I don't arrange by color or height though. But all series need to be together and hardcovers first and then softcovers. And NEVER write in a book!! Thats just blasphmeys!!
