Reading Habits

I've seen this question form on many different blogs and it looked fun so I decided to do it too!

Do you snack while you read? If so, favourite reading snack:
I occasionally snack while reading and I usually like it to be something small like yogurt covered raisins, or M&M's

What is your favourite drink while reading?
Iced Tea-it's my favorite drink anytime!

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
I am appalled when people write in books! I think it is a horrible practice that needs band!

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
A bookmark. I have the same opinion of dog-earring and laying flat open as I do of writing in books!

Fiction, non-fiction, or both?
I generally prefer fiction and read more of it but I do like non-fiction and read a decent amount of that.

Are you a person who tends to read to the end of a chapter, or can you stop anywhere?
I like to end things with a chapter end or a least a breaking point but I have no problem stopping randomly if the situation requires it.

Are you the type of person to throw a book across the room or on the floor if the author irritates you?
Nope-you might have guessed I tend to frown on any sort of damaging behavior toward books-but I have been know to close a book in frustration and maybe smack it against a soft surface.

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away?
Not really. I can usually guess it's meaning based on the way it's used.

What are you currently reading?
A Love Inspired book that isn't amazing but it's ok.

What is the last book you bought?
I recently bought quite a few book because we went to Half Price Books my fav of which was a beautiful copy of Jane Eyre. Check out my Stacking the Shelves post if you want to see!

Are you the type of person that reads one book at a time, or can you read more than one?
I read quite a few at a time. Often I have at least 3 if not 5 going at once.

Do you have a favourite time/place to read?
Anytime but I like to sit on my bed.

Do you prefer series books or stand alones?
Series! I get wrapped up in characters and love spending more time with them!

Is there a specific book or author you find yourself recommending over and over?
Susan May Warren, Mary Connealy, Karen Witemeyer, Cathy Marie Hake, Dee Henderson, Ken Ham

How do you organize your books? (by genre, title, author's last name, etc.)
Genre, mostly. Western historical fiction, other historical fiction, Susan May Warren (I have almost all her books 35), contemporary romantic suspense, contemporary romance, YA, novellas, classics and Love Inspired, and non-fiction,

I prefer series' as well. I recently finished Mary Conneally's Sophie's Daughters series (it's a trilogy that's wrapped up and connected to two other trilogies she's written ~ a nine-book saga!)! Great books. Plus who wouldn't love Mary Conneally's style? :)

But if an author does stand-alones and I really like the writing style, I'll hunt down all of her books (like I did with Siri Mitchell. I did a library raid and now I've read all of her books but one. Love her!).
