Not 100% but the "Delayed Onset Reader #1"

I have the Princess Bride, but I've yet to read it, as with the Anne of Green Gables (which I have had since early secondary school)

I don't think any of those types actually describe me fully!

One type doesn't describe me either. I'm the delayed onset reader #1 and the cross-under. I have a co-worker that's a book-buster, it makes me cringe to see what she does to her books!

Very interesting article!

I'm several: the Cross-Under, The All-the-Timer/Compulsive/Voracious/Anything Goes Reader, and the Bookophile.

I have way too many of those symptoms mentioned in the article.

Delayed Onset Reader #1, Bookophile, The Rereader, the audiobook listener (did you all read the next addy-with more reader symptoms)

I think I'm all of them except for the bookhater/reader ones. LOL

Ditto! Good fun article. Thanks.

I am a delayed onset reader #1, multi-tasker & sleepy time reader. I'm sure I could fit into more categories but I didn't read the rest-have to go get ready for work now.

Okay, I read the article, and it's obvious to me that I am a Cross-Under, Multi-tasking, Sleepy Bedtime, Hopelessly Devoted, Book Swagger-ing, All the Time/ Compulsive/ Voracious reader.

:roll: But then, I already knew that.

F'rinstance: I just read that Lois Bujold is bringing out a new Vor book - and this one's about Ivan! - and am now anxiously awaiting the time I can put in my reservation at the library so I can read the hardcover immediately and be happy until I can buy my keeper paperback copy... Obviously compulsive. :lol:

I am "The Multi-Tasker". I definitely read more than one book at a time. I do it all the time.

One type that I did not see on this list but confess to being, is the Impatient or Bored Reader. If the story is slow-going or I just cannot stand the suspense, I read the end to see either Whodunit or Whosheendsupwith (if there's more than one guy in the story).

Like many other have said, I don't fall into one specific category. After reading through all the types, I found that I'm a combination of The Re-Reader, The All-the-Timer/Compulsive/Voracious/Anything Goes Reader, The Hopelessly Devoted, and The Bookophile. :D
