What Kind Of Reader Are You?

Alison Morris from Publishers Weekly had this interesting question on her blog, asking her readers whether they are:

1. The Whimsical Polygamist: you dip in and out of multiple books at once -- whichever strikes your fancy or fits your whim anytime, anyplace.

2. The Placebound Polygamist: you read multiple books simultaneously but each in its own locale -- say, you've always got one book you're reading at home, one you reserve for your workplace lunch break, and another that's the sole domain of your subway ride.

3. The Noncompetitive Polygamist: at any one time you are reading one fiction book and one non-fiction book, or some similar combination of multiple books that does not involve reading two books of the same type at the same time.

I'm mostly #2. I have a few books in the bathroom (which makes me a bi-polygamist?!), one near the computer, one in the truck, one in my bag, and Lord knows where else.

If the book is unputdownable, I do carry it with me to bed and finish it.

What about you? Maybe you're a true Monogamist and can only read one book at a time. Or perhaps you're a variation not mentioned above?

Bear with me while I learn. The first button likes the POST. The second button likes the BLOG site. Please help me by "liking" me. Thanks!

I am a Whimsical Polygamist. And I'm proud of it darn it. I cheat on every single book I put my greedy, greey hands on. It's an addicction.

It varies - sometimes I'm a monogamist, sometimes a polygamist. Since I generally read paperbacks, it's easy to throw the current book in my bag. For the car,I leave a book of short stories.

LadyZannah said...

true monogamist, ONE book at a time from start to finish, it does not matter if I'm at work, home or stopped in traffic. The book usually lasts for about 24 hrs anyway then I move onto a new book. Except for Acheron, that one lasted a few days. If only more books were as big as Ash.....lol.. that sounded so funny.

Deborah,
I like being whimsical too! And the Alpha Male can't understand how I can keep so many stories straight. I told him I have two sides of my brain for that. LOL.

i'm a true monogamist. if i read one book, i have to finish it before i start another. rarely though if the book doesn't grab me at first, i might play the whimsical polygamist. i tried whole polygamist thing before too and i couldn't get my stories straight. i'll be picking up one book wondering what will happen in the other.

Mo said...

{crawling out from under her rock} Monogamist! Like Lady Z - the book never lasts long anyway. ;) And books I start and don't finish very rarely will get picked up again.

Bunny Queen said...

I'm a cross between whimsical and placebound. I always have a book for the bus and work, but usually have multiple books at home.

Kathleen Dante said...

I used to be a Whimsical Polygamist, sometimes still am. By usually, these days, I'm a monogamist, possibly because the time, brain cells and attention I used to spend skimming other books are now taken up by writing. >.< I missed switching between books!
