1. Do you snack while you read? If so, favourite reading snack?
I really try not too unless I'm really hungry. I hate having anything stain or grease up my pages. I also hate rolled spines and folded corners.

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

You will not see me EVER write in a book unless in just inside the cover to mark ownership. Usually in as *small as I can stand* handwriting.

3. How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
See Answer #1. I either use a bookmark, spare piece of paper or whatever else I have laying around. I refuse to abuse!

4. Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?
Fiction. Only on the rarest occasion n will you catch me reading a book that is non-fiction. In fact the only non-fiction book you will see on my bookshelves, at any given time is The Diary of Anne Frank. I do though like diction based on actually people or events the "Little House" series has been a mainstay for as long as I've known how to read.

5. Hard copy or audio books?
Hard copy. Audiobooks are an absolute last resort for me. (unless something comes in Audio only, then I will consider it.)

6. 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?
Any given point. Books can wait. Potty breaks can't. Twilight I find myself putting down several times a page. I find myself wanting to finish Angels & Demons to refresh my memory before I go see the movie.

7. If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? Write it down to look it up later? Just try to infer what it means from the rest of the sentence, and keep going?

Most of the time, without vanity, I'll check it out an Answers.com. They have been most helpful in the past. In fact, despite the fact that I only have a High School degree, I've been told I have a collegiate vocabulary.

8. What are you currently reading?

Seriously? Too many books to really count but I'll give it a shot

Angels & Demons by Dan Brown
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Darcy's Story by Janet Alymer
Great Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe
Transformers: The Veiled Threat by Alan Dean Foster

And those are just the books I can remember

9. What is the last book you bought?
Transformers: The Veiled Threat by Alan Dean Foster

10. Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can read more than one at a time?
See the Answer to #8 I'm a multi-tasking reader.

11. Do you like re-reading books?
Yes. That's why I can't bear to part with any of my books.

What can I say when it comes to my books most of the time I'm all:

Hands off the precious!
