BookLikes recently asked readers via social media, “What kind of reader are you?” They did more than pose the question, though. Using a diagram, BookLikes broke down different reading habits and idiosyncracies so users could think about – and be amused by – how they read books. I thought the image was so funny yet true that I had to share it here!
So, what kind of reader am I? Well, I am a…
- Monogamist: I prefer to give whatever story I’m reading my full and undivided attention, so I rarely read more than one book at a time.
- Altruist: Looking for book recommendations? I’m always happy to offer some! I also like to give books as gifts to friends and family.
- Introvert: Plot, dialogue, character development, writing style, small details – I notice and applaud (or scrutinize) everything. I also feel more connected to a story if I can relate to or empathize with the main character(s).
- Extrovert: Huh? Yes, it’s possible to be both an introvert and extrovert reader. Fantasy may be my favorite literary genre, but I like to explore other realms like historical fiction, science fiction, mystery, commercial fiction, self-help / spirituality, and poetry.
Now I’m curious to know… What kind of reader are YOU? 😉 Share your answers by commenting below!
