BBAW #2 - About Me

My interview swap partner and I didn't really have time to exchange questions so I'm going with the alternative:

Do you snack while you read?  I don't snack but I drink a lot of coffee or tea (chai or green)

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

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? I use book marks or write down the page number.

Laying the book flat open?  AHHHH! only if there is no change of breaking the spine.

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? Both

Hard copy or audiobooks? Hard Copy -sometimes audio

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? Any point

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? Nope...I keep reading.

What are you currently reading? Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan

What is the last book you bought? Just Bought "Something Like Normal"

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

I've tried to read more than one book but I always lose interest in one of them if I do

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read? Sunday Morning/ Couch in living room

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? I like both. 

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? Maggie Stiefvater, Lauren Oliver, and Ami Mckay. Always.

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) By author usually, though lately I've been organizing my stand alones by colour....


  1. I can't dog-ear a book. My mom was a librarian and it was a family-felony in our house.

  2. I have never thought of writing down the page number. I use bookmarks! Hair ties, business cards, or any scrap of paper. I loved Something Like Normal and we both share that love of all things Maggie!
