36% Dedicated Reader
27% Non-Reader

Pretty accurate. I've read a lot, over time - it has a tendency to accumulate. But I don't really consider myself "a reader" or that "reading" is hobby of mine.

Literate Good Citizen . It's actually pretty accurate for me. I've read a fair amount of classics as well as a bunch of others from all over the spectrum. though I'm not as much of a reader as I used to be.

Literate Good Citizen, which is fine by me but I thought the questions on the test were rather stupid--the most accurate answer to most of those questions would be "none of the above."

Yeah, most of the questions were silly. Especially the one that said something like "choose the group for which you've read ALL of the books in it," and each group listed four or five books. Of course I had read exactly two books in every group.

I read a lot of Stephen King in high school so I'd read those two and, of course, a whole lot more--I remember every book I had to read for class and I also read a shitload of other stuff ranging from Dune and Ed McBain's 87th Precinct novels to The World According to Garp and Catch-22. Right now I'm reading Heinlein's Puppet Masters and after that, I plan to read Saul Bellow's Ravelstein. I need to read more non-fiction, though.

I read The Bridges of Madison County because I put it on the syllabus for a class I teach called Popular Fiction. Terrible book. The class loved it.
