2009 BBAW Reading Meme

(I found this meme over at Booking Mama
and decided to participate.)

Today's challenge is a Reading Meme. I am encouraged to be creative with this.
Please choose one or two questions to answer or try to answer all the questions in five words or less. Or choose a picture to answer a question! Brevity is the goal of today! I chose to answer the questions in as few words as possible!

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack? Sometimes...candy, fruit, popcorn, etc.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you? Yes! I would never do that!

How do you keep your place while reading a book...Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open? Yes. No. NEVER!!

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? Fiction only, please

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? I prefer reading straight thru, but I can put it down when needed.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? No

What are you currently reading?

What is the last book you bought?

Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time? One at a time...99% of the time

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

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? Both, but I really enjoy series books read back to back to back

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? Julie Lessman, Maggie Brendan, Tamera name a few...

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) By author's last name...I. Can. Not. Stand. for my books to be disorganized!!!

(I know, I know...I didn't keep all of my answers to "five words or less"!! Are you surprised???)


  1. lol Why is it that short is so hard?

  2. IDK...I guess I just like to talk too much! LOL I'm also bad about giving too many details!

  3. Wow is that a picture of your bookshelf? Wow you sure are organized! Mine is in alphabetical order by author too but I have so many books I have some stacked this way and that LOL! It bugs me that they're stacked in all different directions but I have no choice!

  4. Hey Renee! LOL That's only TWO shelves on one of my FIVE bookcases! Plus Whitney, Angie, and my Mom are always borrowing my they're never all here at the same time. :D

  5. I have a ton of bookcases too, and I hate to admit it, but sometimes I even have books stacked in front of others. (ducking again)

    I have an excuse for all those books though - home schoolers need lots of books, right?

    BTW - I know I am wrong for leaving my books open flat like that - and I am very thankful to you, Lori, for being so nice and stopping by my blog and commenting. It makes me feel so much better than seeing it empty. :o)

  6. Lee, you have so quickly become a dear friend! I love dropping by your blog to see which book from my TBR piles, or Wish List, you're reviewing! I love having you drop by my blog, as well. :)

    Don't feel bad, I just bought the last 2 bookcases a couple of weekends ago...before that, I had some books stacked on the floor! I can't imagine where all of the books my sisters and Mom have borrowed are going to go when I get them back. I'm really hoping the 2 extra bookcases help. LOL

    You don't need an excuse to have TONS of books ~ I don't! Except for the fact that I'm addicted to reading. ;)

    Please don't feel bad about "leaving my books open flat"...I wasn't fussing at you, I just can't do that to mine! hahaha

    It's been great talking to you...come back soon...or I'll be by to see you...either way, we'll talk soon!
