Book Meme

From InfantBibliophile

It's Day 3 of Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW), and today participants have been asked to answer the following questions:

Reading Meme

"We encourage you to be creative with this! Please choose one or two questions to answer or try to answer all the questions in five words or less. Or choose a picture to answer a question! Brevity is the goal of today!"

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack? not often, if I do, it's grapes or crackers

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you? only if I am doing research in the books.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open? laying the book flat open or a piece of paper

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? Both

Hard copy or audiobooks? Hard copy

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? Depends on the book, but due to the 4 small people in my house, I usually must put my book down whenever, rather than wait to the end of the chapter.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? No, never.

What are you currently reading? Late, Lost, and Unprepared: A Parents' Guide to Helping Children with Executive Functioning by Joyce Cooper-Kahn in the hopes of helping Ella with her cognitive flexibility (adapting to new situations, transitions, handling frustrations), initiation (starting homework, chores, and major projects), working memory (following directions, note-taking, reading and retaining info), planning & organizing (completing and turning in homework, juggling schedules), and self-monitoring (making careless errors, staying on topic, getting into trouble but not understanding why).

What is the last book you bought? The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

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 have several books going at once

Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read? no, no favorite place.

Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? Either.

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? No, there are a lot that I recommend over and over. Off the top of my head: Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, Love and Respect by Emerson Eggerichs, Reforming Marriage by Doug Wilson.

How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) I don't organize. Ask my husband. HE organizes his books, though.
