You sound much like me ... I might have a go at this on my weblog later today.


I keep hearing about A Reader on Reading. How are you finding it? I might need to pick it up.


This was fun! Thank you. My answers are here:


I need silence when I read, too. One of my pet peeves is when I take my lunch at work I go out into the library part (break room is often too noisy) to find a quiet corner to sit,eat and read and often I can't find a quiet spot--lots of chatter and lots and lots of cell phone conversations. I think libraries are no longer quiet places! (I could go to our quiet please/no talking floor, but if I have an apple I hate making crunching sounds!).


Hello Cornflower -- Thanks for the mention and the link. This was a more-interesting-than-usual meme, I thought, and I had fun answering it.


I'm not far enough in to comment properly yet, Skip, but so far I am enjoying it.


I enjoyed it, too!

I too can't eat on my own without reading!

I like the occasional biscuit when I read, something lemony preferably to chocolate - chocolate a no-no because it might melt and leave a nasty smear on a page. I mark passages in pencil in my own books, and if I find a word I'm unfamiliar with, if it's at night and I'm in bed, I mark the page where the word is and, if during the day, I have to look it up immediately. I like to drink coffee or tea, depending on whether morning of afternoon or evening. A cup of tea in bed at night with a good book is my idea of heaven. And I have to have quiet in order to read - I can't read whilst Himself is watching footy on TV, for example; I have to go into the bedroom, the study or the bed sitting room.


This was fun to answer, and you've led me to another reading blog I'll enjoy following!

thank you!


It is fun, Audrey, and great to read everyone's answers. (I like the sound of your couch!).
