BBAW Meme & HistFic Blogger Round Table Update

I know I am a little late on posting these today, but I figured better late than never!
I love answering these short questions, it is a great way to get to know each other.

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
I don’t snack because I am usually reading in bed before I go to sleep – and that is not a good time to eat.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
I don’t usually write in my books – I keep a small notebook on my side table so I can jot down stuff I want to look up or blog about.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
Bookmark, I have recently fallen in love with the pretty metal ones with the beads that dangle from it and have a quote inscribed on it.

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?
Both, but more fiction.

Hard copy or audiobooks?
Up until a couple months ago it would have been hardcopy all the way. Any books that are historical fiction or that I will want to keep are in hard copy – anything to just listen to in the car to take up time I borrow from the library on audio.

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 really try to get to the end of a chapter – I hate stopping in the middle.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
No, I jot it in the above mentioned notebook to look up at the end of the book.

What are you currently reading?
The Triumph of Deborah by Eva Etzioni-Halevy

What is the last book you bought?
Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

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 usually try to do one hard copy book and one audio book. More than 1 of each confuses me.

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
I prefer to read at night – unless there is nothing else to do, but I can read anywhere.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?
I prefer to read stand alones, but if I find a good series I will read it.

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
I try to keep them in order by size, but keep authors together.

Now an update from todays Round Table...

Today Lucy was hosted over at Passages to the Past by Amy, and Lizzy was hosted at historical-fiction.com. There are some amazing giveaways being hosted around the blogosphere and you can check out the links to many of them by clicking on the pictures of my blog sidebar.

Tomorrow I will be hosting Arleigh here at The Maiden's Court with an interview and a guest post about Eleanor of Equitaine - so stay tuned!
