It's midweek already! Today's BBAW meme is this:
We encourage you to be creative with this! Please choose one or two questions to answer or try to answer all the questions in five words or less. Or choose a picture to answer a question! Brevity is the goal of today
Ha! I'm not really know for my brevity, but I'll try. Here are questions asked by the BBAW committee:
Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
⇒ Not usually, sometimes fruit
Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
⇒ Use sticky notes, not pencil
How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears?
Laying the book flat open?
Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?
Hard copy or audiobooks?
Are you a person who tends to read to the end of chapters, or are you able to put a book down at any point?
⇒ Chapter or space break
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away?
⇒ Mark for later
What are you currently reading?
⇒ Between Me and the River
What is the last book you bought?
⇒ Rashi's Daughters: Joheved
Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time?
Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read?
⇒ Deck, afternoon; couch, evening (winter)
Do you prefer series books or stand alone books?
⇒ Either but love series
Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over?
⇒ Currently Willow; subject to change
How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?)

Dane. To win these three short children's/middle reader books, all you have to do is leave a comment here telling me (1) your email address and (2) the title and author of one of your favorite children's books. If your comment is missing this information, I can't count your entry.
