BBAW_Celebrate_Books

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack? No.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you? Depends on the type of book.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open? Ribbon bookmarks or random pieces of paper.

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? Both. And memoirs. Which would be non-fiction, huh?

Hard copy or audiobooks? Hard copy. Paperback over hardcover.

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’ve got to finish the chapter.

What are you currently reading? Emma (Jane Austen), The Montessori Method (Maria Montessori), Feminine Appeal (Carolyn Mahaney) – finished yesterday!, and Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life (Don Whitney)

What is the last book you bought? I can’t even remember. Most of my books come from the library and Paperback Swap.

Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time? Depends on the book.

Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? Jane Austen and Elisabeth Elliot.

How do you organize your books? Like the library. Without the call number.

I’m sure many of you have already heard about the 2nd Annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week going on September 14 – 18 started by Amy from My Friend Amy. It’s going to be a time to “celebrate the contribution and hard work of book bloggers” and all that we do. It is quite a hobby, isn’t it?

There’ll be lots going on from giveaways to daily blogging themes and special guests. Head on over to Book Blogger Appreciation Week to register and get involved.

Well, this week they put out a quick little meme and I thought I’d join in!

1)  What has been one of the highlights of blogging for you?

I’ve really enjoyed “meeting” other book bloggers and finding out about so many books I wouldn’t have otherwise. Now when I walk into a bookstore I go “Oh…I’ve heard of that one…That’s supposed to be really good. I’d like to read that one too.” It’s definitely increased my book awareness.
2)  What blogger has helped you out with your blog by answering questions, linking to you, or inspiring you?

I’d have to say the ladies at 5 Minutes for Books, since that was really the first book blog I came across.

3)  What one question do you have about BBAW that someone who participated last year could answer?

Hmm…don’t really know. I do wonder how some bloggers are able to read and review so many books!
