Questions for the Book Lover

This questionnaire was originally posted by Hero @ Heroic Endeavors but I found it on Kelli’s blog, She Learns As She Goes.  I love quizes & questionnaires so I thought I’d try it out too :).  Here we go!

Do you snack while you read?

Sometimes.  If I do, it’s usually popcorn :)

What’s your favorite drink while reading?

I love the herbal coffee Teeccino.  I put almond milk, sugar, and vanilla syrup in it and it’s super delish!  Of course, when it’s too hot outside for a hot drink, I love homemade lemonade.

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

It kind of does horrify me even though I read somewhere that it’s good to write in your books.  The only book I mark in is my Bible.  Wait, that’s not true, I mark all over my textbooks if I own them.  But beyond that, I do not highlight or write in the margins of my books.  If I want to remember something, I put a sticky tab or note on the page and write on that.

How do you keep your place while reading a book?

I use bookmarks.  My neighborhood library, when I was growing up, always had bookmarks at the front desk and I would get a new one every time I visited.  I still have a handful of those bookmarks and they’re super nostalgic and homey and sweet.  I do pick up new bookmarks every now and again at bookstores or libraries.  I do want some of those monogrammed ones….

Are you the type of person who tends to read to the end of the chapter, or can you stop anywhere?

I can stop anywhere.  I’d prefer to finish a chapter in one sitting but it’s just not realistic.  I snatch time to read in bits and pieces.

Are you the type of person to throw a book across the room or onto the floor if the author irritates you?

Is the author irritating me or the storyline?  Because it depends.  Gone with the Wind irritated me but I stuck through it.  I’ll only quit on a book if the writing isn’t clear, the arguments are bogus or I get bored with a weak storyline.  But to answer the question, haha, no I have yet to throw a book across a room.

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

I usually just figure it out by the context.  Lately, I’ve been writing down cool or unusual words to look up later.  I’m usually too lazy to stop and look words up in a dictionary.

What are you currently reading?

  • The Bible
  • Christ’s Object Lessons by Ellen White
  • Of Thee I Zing by Laura Ingraham
  • Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
  • On Writing Well: What Every Blogger Needs to Know by Denise J. Hughes

Yeeaah.  I’m not one to read just one book at a time :P.

What is the last book you bought?

1776 by David McCullough.  It’s list price is $32.00. I bought it on Amazon for $0.01 + &3.99 for S&H.  Aw yeah, babe, I was a happy camper!

Do you have a favorite time/place to read?

I can read anytime and almost anywhere but I especially like reading curled up in bed or on the couch or armchair.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone?

I love both :).

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

I usually match book to person but I have recommended Crazy Love by Francis Chan several times, as well as Authentic Beauty by Leslie Ludy.

How do you organize your books?

I’m real specific about my books.  I sort by genre and then by height.  I’m not all alphabetical with my library, I prefer my books to look good on my shelves.

That was lovely!  Feel free to fill in this little questionnaire, and leave me a comment and link so I can check out your answers :).  I will be linking mine to Kelli’s post.

Y’all have a blessed Friday :)
