What are your reading habits?

My friend Heather @ Proud Book Nerd introduced me to this meme. I told her I am NOT stalking her but she shares these awesome meme's and I have to participate! :) Thanks Heather!

Do you snack while you read?
I don't normally snack but very often I will sit and read while I eat my lunch.

What is your favourite drink while reading?
Well, if it is during lunch I have an ICE COLD COKE otherwise it's Water w/lemon for me!

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
Ok ~ if it a self help book I will write all over it but if it is a fiction book I never write in them unless it is my Name so when I lend the book out they know who to return it to.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
Definitely dog ears because I lose bookmarks like crazy! I just don't know what happens to those things !!! Drives me crazy! :)

Fiction, non-fiction, or both?
Fiction. I very rarely read anything non-fiction. I want to relax and enjoy not have to think to deeply LOL

Are you a person who tends to read to the end of a chapter, or can you stop anywhere?
I like to finish a chapter but honestly I can stop anywhere on the page and it doesn't bother me.

Are you the type of person to throw a book across the room or on the floor if the author irritates you?
Throw a book??? Never. I may be caught screaming out loud "why oh why" OR "what the heck did they do that for?" but never.throw.a.book!

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away?
No. I can usually figure it out depending on what's happening in the book. But if I need to I will look it up!

What are you currently reading?
Just about to finish Heart Mender by Andy Andrews

What is the last book you bought?
Francine Rivers newest book titled "Her Mother's Hope"

Are you the type of person that reads one book at a time, or can you read more than one?
I can read 5 books at a time and it drives my family CRAZY :~P

Do you have a favourite time/place to read?
Nope, whenever I can but I LOVE going to a Barnes & Noble or a Coffee shop and just sitting with a cup of coffee and read and watch people.

Do you prefer series books or stand alones?
Before I began reviewing books I rarely read anyone other than Karen Kingsbury and I LOVE her series. I have to say I am soo Thankful to review because I have been so blessed to find some AMAZING authors!

Is there a specific book or author you find yourself recommending over and over?
Yes. I usually recommend anything Karen Kingsbury or Francine Rivers but I will always recommend Ron hall and Denver Hall's "Same Kind of Different As Me" as well.

How do you organize your books? (by genre, title, author's last name, etc.)
Organize? What is that? HA. My dad shared my love of reading but HE listened to books on Tape. He has an amazing library and had them all according to genre, listed alphabetically and on his computer and backed up as well. This was something My husband was able to inherit and treasures immensely!

Aww! I'm glad you like the memes I find! ;-) This was a fun one, wasn't it?

Dog ears? OUCH! ;-) Have you tried using a small Post-It? Those are great, because when you're reading you can stick them inside the cover and they don't go anywhere!

I agree with you on reviewing books! I've read so many authors I never would've read otherwise.

What a great little meme! I am always amazed at people that can read more than one book at a time and keep it all straight. My daughter can do that too. Smiling at your Barnes and Nobles one...I would end up people watching instead of reading. :-) I almost need pure quietness when I read.

Hearing your reading habits just makes me love you more! I'm with you all the way (except for the dog earing, but I totally get why you would...Greyley is definitely a dog earer.) Mmm, ice cold Coke and a great book...nothing better. :)

Hey girl,

I enjoyed reading your reading habits. I like to use sticky notes or those little sticky tab thingys (we have some that look like arrows). They can stick out of the edge of the book so I find my place easily and I can put it on the spot where I stop!

I look forward to your review of the Andy Andrews book. Have you read any of his others?
