My Reading Habits!!!

Saw this me-me on The Undercover Book Lover (Not Really) and I simply know I’ve got to do have it too!

Do you snack while you read? If so, favourite reading snack:
NO! I love laying/sitting down in a comfortable position and enjoy reading the book. Only reading. Soft instrumental songs in the background is wonderful too. =)

What is your favourite drink while reading?
Rarely drink when I read but if I do, it has to be English Breakfast tea or hot chocolate. These 2 complement best when you have your nose stuck in a book!

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
I will NEVER write in my book (except for my name and the year I bought it).

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
No way I’m ever going to lay my book flat open!Esp faced down!!! *that’s so horrifying!* I use a bookmark or remember the page where I stopped. As for recipe books, I mark them with adhesive indexer.

Fiction, non-fiction, or both?
Both! 75% of fiction and 25% non-fiction. ;)

Are you a person who tends to read to the end of a chapter, or can you stop anywhere?
I can stop anywhere LOGICAL..say after a paragraph. Still prefer to stop at the end of a chapter.

Are you the type of person to throw a book across the room or on the floor if the author irritates you?
No way!!! I care for ALL my books to be throwing 'em anywhere at all! If I’m not happy about a book, I’ll just shut it and put it back on the shelf.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away?
Most of the time, I’ll just read the sentence and have a rough idea what the word means. If the word still hangs in my head, I’ll look it up when a dictionary is within my reach. I don’t really like my reading interrupted.

What are you currently reading?3 books;
Mathilda by Roald Dahl
The Rules of Life by Richard Templar
Freakonomics by Stephen Dubner and Steven Levitt

What is the last book you bought?
Smoothie Heaven by Wendy Sweetser
Happiness in Hard Times by Andrew Matthews
The Housekeeper + The Professor by Yoko Ogawa
Freakonomics by Stephen Dubner and Steven Levitt

Are you the type of person that reads one book at a time, or can you read more than one?Mmm..depends on my mood. As much as I would like to concentrate on one book, I’m always torn between many. Most of the time, I will end up with atleast 2 books. *can’t be helped*

Do you have a favourite time/place to read?
On my bed or at a corner of a comfy sofa!

Do you prefer series books or stand alones?
Standalones. If it is a great one like the Shopaholic series, why not? ;)

Is there a specific book or author you find yourself recommending over and over?
The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. =) I don’t just recommend. I would even go to the extend of buying it as birthday presents!

How do you organize your books? (by genre, title, author's last name, etc.)
Sizes and types(hardcover/paperback). I have also tried arranging by colours and authors but sizes and types makes me feel more satisfied.
