The Question Club
1. What are your reading habits like? i.e., do you read multiple books at once, dog-ear your pages and take notes in the margins, etc.|
I tend to dog ear pages in paperbacks, and I have no qualms with taking notes in the margins... I usually have to for things I read for school anyway. I also am really bad about starting a book and then wandering off in the middle of it, only to come back to it weeks or months later. I also am really hesitant to get rid of anything I might want to read again, so I've accumulated a ridiculous number of books... and I buy them at a faster pace than I can read them. I also am starting to keep a journal with summaries and my thoughts on books I finish, which I think will be nice to be able to look back on.
2. What are you reading right now?
I'm about to finish up The Woman in White, and am partway through a book called Wittgenstein's Poker.
3. What was the last book you finished?
I sat in a coffee shop last night from 11pm-3am and read The Solitary Vice: Against Reading from cover to cover, which prompted this post.
4. What books are you planning on reading in the near future?
I can't decide... I recently bought some pretty awesome ones. I have The Library at Night, No One Belongs Here More Than You, City of Thieves, The Varieties of Scientific Experience, and Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid. So one of those.
