Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
Not usually, I like to concentrate on reading completely, unless it’s for read-a-thon 🙂
Here is one of the snacks I made for the last one, yum. I’m soooo excited that it’s coming up in October again.
Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
I usually don’t mark, but I’m not that particular about it either.
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?
Bookmarks. If one isn’t handy I dog-ear.
Laying the book flat open?
Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?
Hard copy or audiobooks?
No audiobooks for me, thank you.
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 have to read to the end of chapters or at least a break in the chapter.
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
No, unless it hinders my understanding to the sentence. Usually I just go with the meaning in context.
What are you currently reading?
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. Edit: I was going to start reading this but now I’m reading Between me and the River which looks good so far.
What is the last book you bought?
Oh, I bought a LOT of books. Here’s the post and take a look at the pic below 🙂
Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time?
Strictly one book at a time.
Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
I cannot afford to have a favorite time to read. Night time is the only time I get to read. Favorite place to read would be my computer chair with my feet kicked up on the table or my bed or my armchair in the living room if the Telivision isn’t on.
Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?
Usually stand alone.
Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
Lisa Kleypas and Nora Roberts for romance readers, Michelle Moran for entertaining and television style Historical fiction, Mary Higgins Clark for mysteries, Sidney Sheldon for people who don’t read much, Jodi Picoult for overtly emotional books and if you want something to think about. I can go on and on but I’ll stop.
How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
I don’t have enough space to organize, currently it’s read-unread. But when I have enough space I might organize them by Genres and then club the books by same author together.
I enjoyed this topic, let me know if you’ve done it too.
I enjoy reading your answers, Violet!
I don’t listen to audiobooks either, they just don’t work for me. I can’t wait to hear what you’ll think of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. 🙂
Mmmm, watermelon! Great answers 🙂
that’s a pretty awesome looking snack. and that armchair looks quite cozy.
oooo… I like your reading chair and the window it sits by.
I can read several books at a time!
BBAW: Reading meme
Bhelpuri – YUMMMMMMMMM!!!!!
I want I want!
I love your arm chair 😉
And yooo—hoo our answers MATCH 🙂
Mine is here!
Your snack looks yummy and your chair looks comfy! No wonder you enjoy the Read-a-Thon. =)
Bhel? Recipe please :-)? I agree that your armchair looks so cozy.
I’m like you – it’s one book at a time for me.
I like all of your recommended author, although Moran is one I’ve not read yet.
I want the recipe for your snack too! 😀
I did mine but Google Reader hates me and will take hours to update! 😛
READ-A-THON!!! I eat a lot during the read-a-thon, too. 🙂 And your chair looks absolutely divine. I don’t have such a comfortable place to read–just the couch. Or my chair at work. Or my car. 🙂
Hi Violet! I read your interview yesterday and came back to check out your meme! I’ve tried an audibook or two but i much prefer books. You reading chair looks so cozy! I love Mary Higgins Clark books especially because I know many of the places in NY she writes about since I’m a NY’er! You really did well at the book sale! Happy Reading!
I want to have “snacks” with you, yummy! Thanks for sharing your reading habits.
We have a lot of similar answers. I did this meme back in May-http://sillylittlemischief.blogspot.com/2009/05/book-meme-again.html.
I really want that armchair! Loved your answers, and the pictures as well. =)
Mmmmm, that snack looks delicious!
Yeah, I can’t do audiobooks either. I don’t remember anything and end up being completely lost!
Great answers, Violet!
I did the meme too but only answered two questions and in five words. LOL!
Seems like a common theme in these memes has been a lack of space to organize…lol
I enjoyed reading your responses, Violet! Mary Higgins Clark was a favorite of mine many years ago. It’s been ages since I’ve read a book by her. Not for lack of wanting too–just lots of other books to read as well. I’m hoping to read more Michelle Moran soon.
That chair looks comfy and the snacks look good. Think I’ll be hanging at your house for the next readathon! LOL
Stumbled upon your blog. And this looks like a good place to “hang out” so I’m going to be lurking around here once in a while. ^_^
