So glad to be back writing after that week-long vacation (will blog about that soon). Today’s post is a bookish meme from the Book Blogger Appreciation Week, which, by the way, officially started on the 14th.
Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
Yes. Chocolates, chips, or any chichirya available.
Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
Not really especially if I just borrowed it from a friend. But sometimes I leave stuff inside books like receipts or any scrap of paper I’ve been doodling on that I also happened to have used as a bookmark.
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?
Dog-ears when no bookmark is available.
Genie in a bookmark. I got this one in grade school as a freebie from an ice cream product and since then, it’s been one of my favorites.
Laying the book flat open?
As much as possible no.
Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?
Fiction most of the time
Hard copy or audiobooks?
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?
Able to put down the book at any point.
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
No. I’ll wait til I can google it.
What are you currently reading?
- Fablehaven, Book 1 – Brandon Mull
- The Siren Queen – Fiona Buckley
- Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane (Book 2, Underland Chronicles) – Suzanne Collins
What is the last book you bought?

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 can read several at a time but only when I’m not raring to finish a particular book.
Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
Usually in the mornings when I’m riding a jeepney on the way to work.
Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?
Doesn’t matter although it takes time for me to get used to an author’s new book/series if I have already been following his previous works.
Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
Nothing in particular..well, maybe the Artemis Fowl series (but I’ve read Eoin Colfer’s The Supernaturalist yet I don’t find it as good as the AF).
How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)
If you can call haphazardly lumping them in piles “arranging”, then that’s how I arrange my books. Hehehe
So there’s my bookish meme. Hope you enjoyed it. ^_^
Special mention to Memory on Stella Matutina from whose post I’ve first read about this. Thanks. 😉
The Genie bookmark was scanned then edited in Adobe Photoshop using brushes downloaded from the Internet.
