Me and My Reading Habits

I decided to participate in the Reading Meme from the BBAW and answer a bunch of questions about my reading habits (whoop whoop)! Here goes:

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
No snacking for me. I usually read at night in bed and wouldn't want the bed to get all "crumbly!"

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of
writing in books horrify you? No writing in books for me --- I am not against it, just never need to!

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Dog ears!

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? Fiction

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? Put down at any point!

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? Certainly not! I usually try to figure it out! Remember I read in bed and don't want to go find a dictionary either......

What are you currently reading? The Book Thief!

What is the last book you bought? The Help!

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 read up to 3 books at a time -- more than that and I will start making up my own stories!

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read? Night - in bed!

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? Stand Alone! Don't you just hate it when you cant find all the books in a series!

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? Right now its Khaled Hosseini! He rocks!

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) By title, however on my blog: anything romantic or spicy can be found at Evysharlequins. More serious or classics listed here. In my home, books are everywhere!


  1. You are more disciplined than me - I endure a crumbly bed every now and then. It does mean I have to change the sheets the next day but does that stop me? I wish! My books are everywhere too!

  2. You did a good job with that meme's self-interview. My books are on my bookshelves only and in my closet. I'm running out of room for November's book sale. Good work.

  3. Evy, since you're not on Twitter, thanks for commenting on my blog. My fave genre is thrillers. The book sale I mentioned is my library's book sale. They have it twice a year--April and November. I spent about $25 on books.
