WHAT ABOUT YOU, A POLYGAMIST, NEUROTIC OR SOMETHING IN BETWEEN? ALL OF THIS AND ... SPREADING THE BOOKISH LOVE.


Hmm! 

Occasionally but only very occasionally a Polygamist. I very rarely have more than one book on the go at a time.

A Monogamist in that I tend to read only one book at a time but with so many wonderful titles/authors yet to be discovered I only rarely re-read books. I know, I know, ironic when you consider the number of books on our many shelves. 

A bit of an Introvert in that I do like a book in which I can identify with the characters, however I'm an eclectic reader, enjoying many genres.

One thing I'm not is Neurotic. In fact, the polar opposite, despite all of those titles/authors waiting to be discovered I very, very rarely give up on a book (I think there was only one last year) no matter how much I'm not enjoying it.

I guess I most identify as an Extrovert with a touch of the Altruistic.


But what about you and your friends ... and their children? What better way to find out what kind of a reader they are than to share the love by giving them a book?

Thanks to Barbara @ March House Books for sharing this event here on her blog. I'm hoping to join in by taking some of the children's books I've received for review to my local library on February the 14th where hopefully they'll find a new home and be enjoyed by another generation of readers.

Like you, I don't fit in to any of those categories perfectly, but probably (again, like you) most fit the Extrovert with a touch of Altruistic. And while I'm usually a monogamist, I never re-read books and sometimes have a non-fiction or daily devotional type book going on the side.

What a great idea for how to share the children's books you've read and reviewed!

Tracy, I seem to fit into many of these categories (so perhaps I am a "moody reader"), although I am not a neurotic reader. I enjoyed this post about reading habits. Have a terrific weekend.

I'm more on the left side. I used to read a lot of books at once, but now it's usually only two at a time if that. I'm pretty open to any and all books. I've definitely expanded what I read through blogging. And finally, I LOVE to recommend books - hence the blog. :)

Tracy,
I am definitely not a neurotic reader. But I can
identify with the monogamist, as for instance
I love to re-read books. But sometimes I am a
polygamist. And also with the introvert, as I
truly appreciate characters with who I can
identify and care about. But I do not stick to
one genre. In this I am not an introvert
but an extrovert, because I love to discover
and explore new books and genres. And privately
I have recommended books to family and friends.

I love these categories, I used to me monogamous but in recent years I have become Polygamous.

In some ways I am an extrovert, I read across, genres. But I am careful what I read and do not pick up everything. So in this way I am an introvert.

Giving books as gifts is a great thing to do.

I like to identify with the characters too and am a bit of an altruist reader, raving to friends and family about books.
Happy weekend!

Hi Tracy, I’m a Monogamist – who knew? Thanks so much for spreading the word. Have a lovely week, Barbara x

I'm somewhere between a monogamist and extrovert reader, I guess! I only read one book at a time, but I do love trying new books and will read all sorts.

Only category I don't fit is neurotic. :) So glad you are still doing the book giveaway. Wish we had it here. I think the US could do with some reading... or at least I know one that needs to learn to read. *roll eyes* Sorry. :)

Hi Tracy,

I guess I would best be described as an "Altruistic, Monogomist, Extrovert" reader, although this in no way reflects my general personality. I must become a bit of a demon rebel when I read :)
