Booknerd Habits

I saw this on confessions of a bookaholic and thought I'd play too, especially since I haven't posted about books in so long.

Do you snack while you read? If so, favourite reading snack:
Not usually

What is your favourite drink while reading?
I don't think I really have one, whatever sounds good at the moment

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
The idea horrifies me. I've been tempted to mark typos but I just can't do it.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
I have a ton of bookmarks and would rather use something random (tear-out from a magazine or a receipt for instance) over dog-earing.

Fiction, non-fiction, or both?

Are you a person who tends to read to the end of a chapter, or can you stop anywhere?
I prefer to get to the end of the chapter and if I'm close I really feel the need to, but I can stop anywhere.

Are you the type of person to throw a book across the room or on the floor if the author irritates you?
No, but I've been tempted to a few times ::cough -Breaking Dawn- cough::

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away?
No, I can usually figure it out.

What are you currently reading?
American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld

What is the last book you bought?
Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang by Chelsea Handler

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

Do you have a favourite time/place to read?
I can read anytime, anyplace. I like to read curled up on the couch.

Do you prefer series books or stand alones?
I like both. It's nice to get lost in a series but it is also nice to be able to read one book and have the story be done without it dragging on.

Is there a specific book or author you find yourself recommending over and over?
The Outlander series. Love it.

How do you organize your books? (by genre, title, author's last name, etc.)
Right now they are sort of split by genre. I have comedy books all together, travel books together, etc. But otherwise they are just throw together.

I'd love to hear your answers!


  1. I find it hard not to read with a pencil in hand. I love marking books. It is a habit I developed in Honors English in HS. It is really bad when I have a library book or borrowed book and can't do it.

  2. Lol at wanting to throw Breaking Dawn, and you know I totally agree about the Outlander series.

    Let me know how American Wife is! It's been on my TBR for a while now. :-)

  3. I copied and posted my own answers on my blog. This was fun for a Friday morning
