Trivia_quiz1Personality Quiz Results: What type of reader are you?

Last week, we asked you a bunch of random questions to find out what type of reader you are. This week the results will reveal your reader personality! Count up all your answers and see where you fit.

Mostly A’s: OMNIVORE
You read everything! Like the scientific Latin word (eating all things plants and animals to survive), you are a literary omnivore. From sci-fi to fantasy, drama to historical fiction, trendy series to offbeat authors, if it’s got a good hook, you’ll read it! You may go in spurts of reading one genre, and then take a break to read another. You may read several books simultaneously, and you may be caught late at night reading with a flashlight under the covers. You are the person everyone turns to for book recommendations, so wear your badge proudly: a true Book Omnivore.

Mostly B’s: FAN READER
You love the latest popular series! You have your finger on the pulse of what’s hot now. You pick an author or series and become a fan follower. You follow the latest trends and when you find one you like, you are fiercely loyal. Camp out at midnight for the latest book release? Check. Dress like your favorite character? Check. See the movie version the day it comes out? Check. You might like Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Baby-sitters Club, Percy Jackson, and other popular series. Wear your badge proudly: you’re a true Fan Reader.

You read the same books over and over again! Once you find a good thing, you stick with it — because a good book never gets old. You treat your books with loyalty and care. You can quote memorable lines from your favorite books. You will probably pass down your favorite books to your kids! So wear your badge proudly: a respectable Repeat Reader.

You like to experiment with different types of books! After all, variety is the spice of life! You are not afraid to wander away from the norm. You seek out new and cool books – maybe based on a review you read, an off-the-beaten path bookstore you discovered, or a book you saw someone reading at school. You like books that surprise you . . . and sometimes make you cry. You might like books like The GiverWhen You Reach Me, The Graveyard Book, or The Underneath. So wear your badge proudly: an exciting Experimental Reader.

A book better impress you . . . or it gets shelved! You are a very selective reader. You put a lot of thought into the books you pick. You can’t be bothered with a mediocre book – it’s a waste of your valuable time! If a book turns boring, you’ll shelve it. You only read books you know are great. People know if you recommend a book, it must be good. So wear your badge for the world to see: you are a proud Picky Reader.

Your Age in Book Years

Posted by at 2:35 am in Personality Quiz, Trivia | Permalink

Trivia_quiz1Your Age in Book Years

You know how dogs’ ages are different in dog years than in human years? Supposedly, 1 year of human life equals 7 years of dog life. So a 6-year-old dog is really like a 42-year-old human! Well I was wondering if that applies to other things too. . . like those of us who read a lot.

If you read a lot of books, does that make you age differently? Get a pencil and paper, and take this fun (strictly non-scientific) quiz to find out your age in book years.

  • How many books do usually you read per week?
  • Multiply this number by 2.
  • Add 5.
  • Multiply it by 50.
  • If you have already had your birthday this year, add 1762.
    If you haven’t, add 1761.
  • Now subtract the 4-digit year that you were born.

The total number you get is your age in book years, but notice the cool part. The first digit of this number is your reading number (how many books you read per week).
The last 2 numbers are YOUR HUMAN AGE!

Cool, right? Leave a Comment telling us your age in book years!
