    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.

    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 ;) ).

    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. :lol:

    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.

    A hero of mine.
