It takes all sorts

October 19, 2007

I don’t make a habit of these quizzes, but I do have a weakness for them:

What Kind of Reader Are You?

Your Result: Obsessive-Compulsive Bookworm



You’re probably in the final stages of a Ph.D. or otherwise finding a way to make your living out of reading. You are one of the literati. Other people’s grammatical mistakes make you insane.

Dedicated Reader



Book Snob



Literate Good Citizen






Fad Reader

I don’t know about being a literato — at the very least, I would have thought that my affection for Tolkien would have disqualified me — but the bit about grammatical mistakes is true enough.

Not that it matters very much these days. My poor reading plan has fallen on hard times of late, what with the wedding planning, and the two jobs, and the weekend trips. It seems that several of my reading plan’s epicycles have broken, and the former flow of words is down to a trickle of hardly 5-10 pages each day. But times change, and to everything there is a season.

If you try the quiz yourself, I’d not mind knowing the results.

    Apparently, I’m a book snob. I can read, but don’t have the dedication of “literata”. (the fact that I just tried to find the correct spelling for this latin word might be cause for re-consideration).
