A Quiz...  Your Reading Personality


Start quiz 

(my results...)

Your Reading Personality: Serial Reader!  (big surprise huh?!)

You may read a lot or a little, but either way you're a publisher's dream, because once you discover a favorite writer you stick with him/her through thick and thin and eagerly await the next in the series; but even you need to discover some new blood from time to time!

Vala here again. Took the quiz, but mine had different questions. I wound up being a eclectic serial reader and heavy reader. Think they wanted me to join that site. Got your comment on my lj. The cat showed up after the hurricanes back in '04 or '05. Think it belonged to someone at sometime. Momcat know much more about those things. Finishing up a drawing and have to one other but who knows, perhaps when I return from the convention in Chicago, I will be motivated to draw Karl.

I mostly own the books I read, too. But, that's because our library is pretty awful.

I think I'd have to answer 'both' to nearly all those questions! Apart from stream of consciousness/plot, where I think I prefer plots, like you.

I'm not one for borrowing either. Unless they're library books and the library has books I want in the first place. Those I'll borrow. ^-~

This is such a fun and interesting meme to see. ^-^
