Reading Meme

(I found this meme over at Some of My Favorite Things 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...Baked Tostitos.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
I wouldn't mark my books.

How do you keep your place while reading a book...Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
Bookmarks & laying it open (ducks)

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?

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 can can stop anywhere.

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

What are you currently reading?

What is the last book you bought?
The Edge of Light.

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

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
The couch ~ all the time.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?
Stand alone, unless the series is finished.

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? I hate to do that because there are too many good ones... Julie Lessman, Sharlene MacLaren, Kaye Dacus...

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) By genre, series, size, author's last name...It depends on what works best for that type of book.


  1. Leeeeee!!! You'd better be ducking girl!! How can you do that to your books??? LOL I try SO HARD not to "crack" the spine...that's what everyone sees when they're on the shelf!

    WOW! We have a lot in common when it comes to books...except for "laying the book flat open". :D

  2. Julie, Sharlene, and Kaye are some of my favorite authors too! I have to say, like Lori we're pretty similar except for laying open books LOL! I nearly cried when I let my cousin borrow one of my new books and saw her leave it lay flat on the sofa arm! Ahhh! LOL she didn't do any permanent damage though! :-P
