How do you read?

Julia over at Unwritten posted this meme and I thought I would give it a bash 🙂

How do you organise your books?

Oh hell, seriously? I try and keep fiction and non-fiction apart, I try keep books by the same author together and books in a series together, I also have an issue getting rid of books so at the moment my books are an utter mess because there just isnt enough space for all of them.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?

Both, I just love to read 🙂

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?

Whenever and wherever I can.  I love my new Kindle that I got for my birthday, its small enough to pop in my hand bag so I can read wherever I am.

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 would love to be able to read more than one book at a time but I just cant, I tend to loose myself in a book and I just cant concentrate on more than one at a time.

What is the last book you bought?

Hmmmmmm, the last book I bought was a fairytale book as a birthday present for one of the kids friends.  For myself, I bought The Dragon Who Loved Me by G.A. Aiken, book 5 in a series of books about, you guessed it, dragons.

What are you currently reading?

Witches Under Way (Book 2 in the Witchlight series) by Debora Geary.  Its a spin off series from her A Modern Witch series which I have read.  These are also the first books that have been shared via Kindle with me.  You have a few days to accept the loaned book and once you accept it you have 2 weeks to read them in.  I heart Kindle!

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

If I am near my computer then yes, if not I try to remember to check when I have access to my computer.

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?

I pretty much snack all the time, so yes, I snack when I read.  Its usually whatever is handy.

  1. I love to read but I find I have less and less time available lately in which to do it.
    I’ll read in either print or electronic format, as long as the content grabs my attention. I’m loving that my iPad has an eReader and I can’t wait to start populating its “shelves” with all kinds of things to read!
    I’ve downloaded the Kindle app for my PC as well, and recently read “Pride and Prejudice” on it.
    I used to be quite self conscious about what I read and how I would be perceived by other people if they knew what I was reading. But I’ve gotten over all of that and find that I rather enjoy trashy “Chick Lit” every bit as much as the more serious stuff.
    My most recent read was “Dragon Bound” by Thea Harrison. It’s fantsy meets chick lit meets mild erotica and apart from the cringeworthy sex scenes, I love it! 🙂
