    It's that time of the year again where someone posts a link to an online self-testing quiz for all to enjoy and discover something about others and themselves. :)

    This one should be interesting here: What kind of reader are you?

    My result:
    :bolian: Quite odd as I'm not that into books, myself. At least, not anymore.
    Quite an interesting breakdown too, placing obsessive-compulsive at the bottom and a variety of strengths of reader in between.

    How do you fare?

    Apparently I am a very dedicated reader. Sounds accurate to me.

    Dedicated reader.

    However i am not as dedicated as I used to be. I used to read three times as much but that plummeted when I got the internet on at home :(.

    I do tend to be reading more than one book at a time. At the moment I am reading a historical novel set in Iceland (Iceland's Bell by Halldor Laxness), a crime mystery (The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern) and a non-fiction book with a local flavour (Underground Hobart - the World Beneath the City).

    I have several books in my to-read pile with more on the way from Amazon.

    I don't read much science fiction anymore. Once it used to be my favourite genre but nowadays I get must of my sci-fi and fantasy fix via TV or the movies.

    Well I like to do it in bed, but outside on a blanket if warm enough. I prefer thick and hard and it must have substance to keep me interested. I usually have 2 or 3 on the go ~ after all variety is the spice of life :)

    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.
