Literate Good Reader - same as OP. My wife can't stand the piles of books I have all around the house. Although I'm in grad school...most of it's scholarly stuff.

Non-Reader

You always prefer to see the movie. Bookstores make you nervous, so you avoid them. You think people who read are often doing it to make you look dumb.
Actually, I like bookstores just fine. I just tend to only look at non-fiction. But I don't really read books much.

I'm definitely a "dedicated reader," and I keep books with me all the time. In my car, in my purse, and they're overtaking my house. It makes waiting less frustrating. If I'm waiting in line at the drive thru at the bank, for example, I just pull out a book. And people really close to me tease me because they know I always have at least one or two books in my purse at all times.

My parents used to actually worry about me when I was younger because I read so much. And my sister used to complain to my parents, "She's reading the encyclopedia again!" I think because I read so much when I was younger, I'm an insanely fast reader now.

I wouldn't consider myself a book snob, though. I believe that almost all forms of literature are engaging, and it's not as if I only read classics. I think people should read whatever interests them.

What Kind of Reader Are You?

Your Result: Obsessive-Compulsive Bookworm


You're probably in the final stages of a Ph.D. or otherwise finding a way to make your living out of reading. You are one of the literati. Other people's grammatical mistakes make you insane.



Fairly accurate--though I found a few of the questions a bit lacking in proper choices. I do "make my living out of reading" (in large part--teaching college history courses makes it a job requirement) and I do find grammatical errors quite annoying (I'm not sure "insane" is apt, but my wife might beg to differ ).
