I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

BBAW Reading Habits

Today’s it’s all about the creativity. We have this fabulous reading meme for you below and all you have to do? Pick ONE or answer them all in as few words as possible! Be creative, have fun, stand out! That’s all! smile

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
If I snack.... veggies, chips, cereal. Fruit doesn't work unless it's grapes. - okay, great. Now I'm hungry!

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
Horrifies me! I've started using sticky notes to help remember stuff for reviews. I do write in study/textbook kind of books.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?
Dog-ears? no, no, no. flat bookmark ;-) My reading book has a metal hook marking my page right is very cute, I'll get a picture later....

Laying the book flat open?
shudder, I very rarely do this.

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?
both now, but mostly fiction.

Hard copy or audiobooks?
hard copy or ebooks

Are you a person who tends to read to the end of chapters, or are you able to put a book down at any point?
You put your books down? End of chapters are best. Sometimes I have to put the bookmark in and then stop as soon as I get to it without turning the page.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
no, I can usually guess by context

What are you currently reading?
The Man Who Loved Books Too Much. huh, just one?

What is the last book you bought?
Does it count that I'm getting it today? The Lost Symbol. Otherwise Homer's Odyssey.

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 can have several going at once but usually concentrate more on one of them.

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
Anytime, any place. As long as I'm comfortable.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?
either but I like to start at the beginning of a series.

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
mostly whatever I'm reading at the moment or just finished.

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
I try for authors together or like-minded books

I love the name of your blog! We have totally different reading habits except that I also don't look up words. It's usually pretty easy to tell by content what the word means.

Love your answers and how much you respect books! I really want to read The Man Who Loved Books Too Much, hope you're enjoying it!
Homer's Odyssey sounds great too, he's such an awesome cat!

Great answers. This was a fun meme for the week, wasn't it?

You're the first person I've seen who has to bookmark the end of a chapter in order to stop. I thought I was the only one who had to do that! Otherwise I keep reading "just one more chapter" and suddenly it's 2am! *L*

Great answers! :)

Haha! I hope you got something to eat. :-)

I keep a reading journal with me when I read as often as possible and take notes in that. I will write in a book (in pencil) if I'm really desperate, but I don't like doing it.

I want to read The Man Who Loved Books to Much. I hope you are enjoying it!
