- The Devourer: Each book is a snack for this kind of reader--but it doesn't mean that s/he won't enjoy each book just as much.
- The Lover: Books read by this kind of reader are read in hidden, stolen moments at the most unexpected times.
- The Slow Dancer: Books are a treat that this kind of reader savors. Slow and steady wins this reader's race, as his/her eyes take in and taste each and every word.
- The Addict: Books are a conquest to this kind of reader. S/he will buy more books than s/he can read, but s/he will ALWAYS have something to read.
- The Classic: Books of the past are a gift to this reader. Prose in the style of early contemporary authors, or stories written long ago, are favorites for this reader.
- The Die-Hard: Genres are a way of life for this reader. S/he finds a niche and sticks to it--veering from what s/he knows for short bursts of time.
- The Advocate: This reader is a lover of books. S/he is not just a reader, but an advocate of reading--hoping that the future will contain more readers.
- What kind of reader are you? Add on if you wish!
- is it possible to be all of these at the same time?
I don’t need to be protected from a book. Do you?
I’ve started a pet project of sorts (tentatively) called DON’T LIMIT MY LIT. In a nutshell, it’s about book banning. I’m going to keep it going for at least six months— which I like because Banned Books Week will be going on right in the middle. Book banning trends and lawsuits have been flying around in my country lately, so I’ve suddenly taken an interest in learning as much as I can about the big picture of book
burningbanning on an international scale, away from the overall theme of fuckyeahreading, my tumblr book baby (which by the way I seriously still can’t believe has found itself 7,497 followers).
If you’re interested in book banning or what I’ll find, such as
- quotes from banned books
- or quotes about censorship and ban culture—
Reblogs, likes, submissions, even applications for co-admins are all welcome to the party.
