1. What is your favorite genre to read?
For the most part I stick to fantasy and horror. Sometimes I'll read a mystery but not one of those cutesy ones / themed ones.
2. What is the first romance novel you ever read and how old were you when you read it?
Uh, does the series Clan of the Cave Bear count? If so, then I was about 13. *coughs*
Regular romance, though, probably around the same age. When I'm in the mood for romance, Nora Roberts is fun and I enjoy some of the supernatural romances but, in general, I find most romance stories to be kind of insipid.
3. How many books--paper or ebooks--are in your existing TBR pile?
About 80? I need to do a headcount, actually/
4. Do you read nonfiction? If so, from which sub-genre?
More so now than I did before but even then, not religiously. When I do delve into nonfiction then I tend towards: cooking / food, travel, history, science history(?), and some auto/biographies
5. Do you own an e-reading device? If so, which one(s)?
Kindle and I love me my precious - though it makes remembering those TBR books kind of hard ...
6. Which one book have you re-read most often?
That has to be a tie between Lord of the Rings the entire collection and Sword of Shannara. I took those two books everywhere with me when I was a kid and re-read them both dozens of times.
7. How many library books do you have out right now?
Not a one. While I still love libraries, I generally prefer to own my books now.
8. How do you mark your place in a book?
Oh, I'm kind of bad about this - I do tend to dogear my books. I like bookmarks but I almost always lose them or drop them while reading. I did find this really neat one that you slip over the spine of your book to keep it in place and then there's another part that you move around to mark your place in it.
So far that's kept me on the straight and narrow.
9. About how many books do you typically read in a month?
Depends on the month and what's going on in my life. When I have time to read, about 4-7 books a month. When I don't, I'm lucky to even finish one.
10. What was the last book that made you cry?
Feed by Mira Grant. I read it the same month that Katz had passed away and a few months after both my grandfathers and there were a few crucial scenes that just had me crying. I normally don't cry like that over a book but, well, probably poor time in my life to read it. XD
11. What was the last book that made you laugh?
I think Cold Fire had a few moments where I laughed.
