BBAW Reading Meme

There are all sorts of fun things going on for Book Blogger Appreciation Week, and I'm sort of picking and choosing the things I can participate in.

This particular meme is all about the creativity. The idea is to Pick ONE or answer them all in as few words as possible! Be creative, have fun, stand out! Well, Alyce of At Home With Books did the best post and used pictures. You should really check it out.

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack? Usually I just have a cup of cocoa, a glass of ice water or a cold coke. If I'm hungry, I'll eat and keep reading.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of
writing in books horrify you? I have no problem high-lighting passages or lines if something touches me or I want to remember it. I just don't do it to library books!

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Bookmarks. Lots of bookmarks.

Hard copy or audiobooks? Hard copy.

What is the last book you bought? I don't remember. I've been getting everything from my library.

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 usually have multiple books started. That's the problem with reviewing and doing blog tours. I sometimes let myself get over committed, so I read several at once. It's easy.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? Both.

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) Are you serious? Organize? I'm lucky to keep them on the shelf NEATLY.


  1. Don't feel bad - my books aren't organized either.

  2. I do have stacks of books sitting around, but I love keeping my books that are on the shelves in order by author's last name. :)

    Thanks for mentioning (and complimenting) my post!

  3. I'm really enjoying reading these posts ... and I agree with you -- Alyce's was one of the most fun to read!

  4. My books are in piles and the piles start out as priority piles then become chaos. I have to reorganize constantly or I'd never find anything.

    That was fun reading. Thanks for pointing us to Alyce's post. You're right; it's a good one!
