Today’s Question:
Now for this week’s question…

Do you ever dog-ear the corners of book pages to mark your spot? Or are you a faithful bookmark user, refusing to damage the pages of your books? OR do you have another way to keep track of where you are in a book?
My Answer:
Bookmark!!!  Dog-ear never!!  However, I do have 2 sets of bookmarks, some for in the house reading and some for when reading in public.  The “house” bookmarks are random ones without anything special associated to them.  They are the ones that get used the most and it shows, so I don’t feel bad when I have to discard them.  But then there are the special bookmarks that are only used when reading in public and would feel awful if they were damaged in any way.  Which happened with one of them but can not throw it away.  One of my favorite prayers is Footprints and I have a bookmark with that prayer.  My son’s dog got at it and now it has teeth marks in it but there is no way I can throw it away.  I also have some that were given as gifts, those are very special to me.  Two of my favorite bookmarks were given to me, one from my book bloggy friend Julie from Reading Without Restraint, which is a bookmark with a picture and logo of her blog.  Great idea don’t you think?  And the other,  which was given to me from another friend, is a 3D bookmark of roses.  Warning: can make you a little dizzy if you look at it from the wrong angle.  FYI: donations of bookmarks are accepted at this blog and greatly appreciated  LOL.

Okay, now for this week’s question:

Do you eat/drink while reading? If so, do you have some favorite reading snacks?
My answer:
Yes.  As far as drinks, it depends on the time of day and the time of year.  I usually would have a glass of water with a lot of ice cubes…has to be ice water.  But if its in the morning, hot coffee. at night either water, tea or hot chocolate.  Snacks are usually fruits or pretzel sticks.
Ok….now what about you….do you eat/drink while reading?

This Week’s Question:
And now, for question #2…
What do you think about e-books? Do you engage in e-reading or do you prefer to stick to good ol’ physical books?
My Answer:
I had wanted an EReader for awhile, even before finding this neighborhood of book blogging/reviewing.  And around November/December we found out that I needed another back surgery,  hubby felt so bad that he bought me one.  He is a Sony fan so he ordered the Sony EReader.  At first it was a little hard getting used to but I learned quickly.  It was so much easier and less cumbersome taking it where I went compared to a PB/HC, easier holding it while reading in bed.  Other pluses, in my opinion, are the prices of EBooks and the fact that we live in a world of “instant” technology.  If I see great reviews from many bloggers, I just open the EReader and within seconds, have the book.  The only thing I don’t like, if I am reading a really good can’t put down book, the battery needs to be recharged often.  However, I do like the smell of a new book, the noise of turning a page, the look of books in a bookcase.  So as of today I would have to say that I am a 50/50.
