Book Poll!

I borrowed this poll from Ashley at who borrowed it from The Story Siren...Copy and paste the questions and leave your answers as a comment!!!

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
not usually, at night I'll have a glass of milk while I read

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea ofwriting in books horrify you?
I mark in them occasionally - I like reading back over what I was thinking when I read the book before

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?Laying the book flat open?
It depends on the book - If i can lay it open without breaking the spine and I own it, then I'll lay it open. If it's a library book I use a bookmark.

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?

Hard copy or audiobooks?
hard copy pretty much always

Are you a person who tends to read to the end of chapters, or are youable to put a book down at any point?
I need a good stopping point and always try for the ends of chapters

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

What are you currently reading?
World War Z and Crime and Punishment

What is the last book you bought?
This is so shameful - I got a whole bunch of books at the used book store on Saturday and I can't remember the title for even one of them

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

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
At night in bed before I go to sleep

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?
Stand alone

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
CS Lewis, The Hunger Games, Bel Canto

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
By wherever I can fit them right now. When Luke finally gives in and buys me bookcases I plan to organize fiction alphabetically by author's last name and nonfiction by subject.
