BBAW Day#3 Meme--Just a bit late

After getting caught up in my Google Reader this morning, I thought I would quick do the Reading Meme from yesterday. :-)

Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack?
Usually something warm to drink.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of
writing in books horrify you?
Not since college.

Laying the book flat open?
Bookmark, sometimes dog-ear to remember something.

Fiction, Non-fiction, or both?
Both, but mostly fiction.

Hard copy or audiobooks?
Hard copy. (audiobooks are hard for me to focus on).

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?
Almost always end of chapter. (Unless parental duties cause me to immediately put the book down for some reason)

I love the Time Traveler's Wife too. I think I love it all the more because I just picked it up randomly from the library's new releases section after work one day having no idea that it would turn out to be so popular. it was an unexpected delight. I'm afraid to watch the movie in case it disappoints me.
