Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you? I do not mark in my books! That idea horrifies me! Plus, I usually recycle my books by selling them on Amazon.com later, and marking in them would be a no-no.
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Bookmark. Nothing fancy, though I like the artsy fartsy bookmarks you can buy.
Laying the book flat open? I don't like to lay the book flat open, it tends to ruin the spine. I'm picky about how I treat my books. :)
Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? Right now, I am all into Fiction. I do like Non-fiction as well and have shelves filled with Astrology books, how-to books, etc.
Hard copy or audiobooks? Hard copy for me. If I had an audiobook going, I'd be too easily distracted with other things... oh look! A bunny rabbit...
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? I prefer to read to the end of a chapter as long as I can keep my eyes open!
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? Not usually. I can normally figure out what it means by the context in which it's used. Unless it really bugs me and I'm near the computer - in which case I might Google it.
What are you currently reading? I just started reading "Marked: A House of Night Novel" by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast. It's book one in the series.
What is the last book you bought? I bought 3 when I went to Wal-Mart the other day. The above mentioned "Marked," "Impossible" by Nancy Werlin and "Dark Visions" by L.J. Smith. (Read my review of "Impossible" here.)
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 only read one at a time.
Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read? I like to eat at work over my lunch hour to relax. I like to read when I go to bed at night. I like to read whenever I can steal the time. During the summer, I like taking a good book to the swimming pool. It's where I read the whole Twilight series this summer.
Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? No preference, really.
Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? I tell everyone who'll listen and even those who don't... how much I loved the whole Twilight saga. But it's something you either love or you don't.
How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) Random. The ones that I'm finished with go into a large box and get listed online at Amazon.com for sale.
Favorite genre? I love YA, romance, fantasy, mystery, a little sci-fi, vampires, paranormal...
