There are all kinds of things going on for Book Blogger Appreciation Week, including this meme. :)

Either pick one or two questions to answer in short essay form, or answer them all in 5 words or less. Even though being brief is clearly not my strong point, I'm going to try the latter.

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
Sometimes. One handed food like trail mix or raspberries.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
I mark in my books, but only if they're really good.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
Bookmarks! All else is blasphemy!

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

Hard copy or audiobooks?
Hard copies. Audiobooks and I don't get along. :(

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?
End of chapters or at page breaks.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
Only if it keeps me from understanding the gist of the sentence. And then I usually text my dad instead of looking it up anyway, like the "what is guy fawkes day" exchange we had the other day. I was going to skip it as it didn't seem to matter much, but I'm glad I didn't. It actually ended up being important later!

What are you currently reading?
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan and War and Peace by Tolstoy

What is the last book you bought?
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time?
Usually 1 at a time.

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
Anytime, anywhere.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
Not really.

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
By subject matter and then alphabetical by author's last name then alphabetical by title or series order, where applicable. It's very serious.

So, a couple of my answers were a bit longer than 5 words. Oops. ;)
