Book Browse Quiz

One of the blogs I read is Book Bloggers International. This blog is mainly used to connect bloggers with other bloggers. What a concept! I love it. Part of their interviews are the book browse quiz and while I haven't officially been interviewed, (but am considering submitting myself) I thought it would be fun to take the quiz anyway.

I believe there were four options and somehow I found myself falling into three of the categories. What are the chances? *Side note: if I asked my husband that question, he would easily do the math in his head and provide us with a number. But I was a psychology major. I'm more of a social science girl so I'll leave the hard math to him...* Ok, back to the results.

Involved Reader: You don't just love to read books, you love to read about books. For you, half the fun of reading is the thrill of the chase - discovering new books and authors, and discussing your finds with others.

Um, duh. I'm a book blogger. I like to read about books, read books, talk about books, and discover books. Does every book blogger score this one? If not, I would question the validity* of this quiz! *there is the only math a therapist knows. Research statistics. Go me!*

Exacting Reader: You love books but you rarely have as much time to read as you'd like - so you're very particular about the books you choose.

If you read ahead, you will see that the next category is almost mutually exclusive of this category (more research terms, you're welcome.) So I'm going to ignore the results of this part while still putting my faith in the validity of this quiz. (What questions did I answer to get to this point I wonder? I read all the time!)

Eclectic Reader: You read for entertainment but also to expand your mind. You're open to new ideas and new writers, and are not wedded to a particular genre or limited range of authors.

Ah yes, once again, this quiz has hit the nail on the head. I'm extremely eclectic. If you think I should read a book, it goes on the TBR list. If a book is highly talked about, it goes on the TBR list. If the book has a pretty cover, it goes on the TBR list. See where I'm going with this. I'm a reading slut. I'll go with any genre, any time. (With the exception of poetry. I hate poetry and have no interest in it.) This makes for a huge TBR but also a vast repertoire of reading experiences(maybe sluts should use the word repertoire when referring to themselves, might class it up a bit. Just a suggestion.)

2 out of 3 ain't bad, eh? I do love books and I do love to read various books and genres. But I think anyone who has every talked to me about books, seen me in B&N, or read my blog would know that. So my question is, awesome quiz or just luck? You decide. To be honest I already decided on the latter but I like to leave things open to interpretation.

And go take the quiz and share your answers with me!!!


  1. I did not get "involved" reader, but I'm guessing that my other answers just overpowered this one. If the quiz was longer, or if you could pick any answer that applied, I'm sure this would have been part of my reading personality as well.

    1. Yea, I am very amused by this quiz. Short and sweet and the results are a little ridiculous. How did I manage three categories?!?
