keep those answers short!

Challenge: try to answer all the questions in five words or less. Brevity is the goal of today! (and boy, was it hard! I’m a word-happy blogger…)

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?

No snacks. Icky residue. COFFEE.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of
writing in books horrify you?

Academic books get penciled in.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?
Laying the book flat open?

Bookmarks rule! (or my memory)

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?

Mostly fiction with some exceptions.

Hard copy or audiobooks?

Hard copy, but e-books, too.

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?

End of the sentence.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?

No. Context helps me understand.

What are you currently reading?

Prada and Prejudice, Only Milo and Half Moon.

What is the last book you bought?

Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters.

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

Several at a time.

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

Red armchair in early evening.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? 

Either, but well-written and long!

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?

Neil Gaiman is made of awesome.

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)

Haphazardly. Only organization by size.

A lot of people are talking about Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. This sounds like a fun book. I have to get the first one too.

This is a great little post!

Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters sounds odd. I heard a radio interview with the editor last week, and I guess it's more of a mystery than horror with the new text.

I L O V E that you organize by size. good for you.

Lisa said...

Thank heavens your books are haphazardly arranged. I just read another blog where the blogger said she has all of her books alphabetized. And I was feeling so inadequate!

Does "Hey, I bet this'll fit there," and then squeezing it in count as organization by size?

Kara said...

I find myself comparing my answers to yours lol.
