I completely missed the Book Blogger Appreciation Week memo this year. I couldn’t figure out why people were appreciating me yesterday.
But when I realized it was BBAW, I headed over to the website to see what was happening and stumbled upon this list of questions for those partnerless in the interview swap. Figured I’d play.
Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack? Not usually. But I love a cup of tea with a book.
Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you? I don’t mark my books but that is more out of laziness. If I like a quote, I usually note the page in a note on my phone so I can find it again come review-writing time.
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Whatever handy “bookmark” I can find. Usually a library receipt.
Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? Fiction, generally.
Hard copy or audiobooks? Both!
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 can put a book down mid-sentence. Which is handy now that I have a baby.
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? Usually. Yay, smartphones.
What are you currently reading? Print = Fallen in Love by Lauren Kate; Audio = Messenger of Truth by Jaqueline Winspear; Ebook = Gone Girl
What is the last book you bought? A bedtime book for Evan. For myself? Probably Shine by Jeri Smith-Ready. I haven’t been buying books lately.
Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time? See my answer to what I am currently reading.
Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read? I love reading on weekend mornings. But that’s a thing of the past for now.
Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? I appreciate both.
Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? It goes in phases for me. I’ll recommend one book to everyone for awhile.
How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) By genre. Within fiction, by author’s country.
