Filipino Fridays 2013: Introduction


Filipino Friday 2013 kicks off with this question, “What kind of reader are you?” based on this infographic by Laura E. Kelly.

Going through the infographic, I realized that I cannot be pinned down to just one kind of book reader. I’m definitely a mutt, because of the way I feel about books and reading in general. I’m a free-range reader because while I have my favorite genres, I try to read anything. However I’m also a combination of other kinds.

I definitely am a compulsive book reader. I read through the descriptions and every one of them fits me to a T. I rarely lend books because I am OCD about the condition it’ll be when it’s returned (proven many times *sigh*), I display them on my bookcases, and I definitely believe in finishing a book in one sitting.

There’s also a few descriptions in the situational category that fit. I’m definitely a Kindle convert because it’s so convenient (but I maintain that printed books are still the best, and if I loved the digital version, I’d buy the print). I’m somewhat app happy too because of it. I’m a comfort reader and sleepy bedtime reader (which I blame on the fact that I feel compelled to finish a book in one sitting). Bathroom reader? Guilty.

I’m don’t read for prestige, because it just seems silly (and people can see through that, especially if the person’s a true book lover). I can never be a hater, because, well, if I hated books, I’d have no life.

How about you? What kind of reader are you?

    1. Oo, OC ako! I usually lend it out to people who I know are similarly OC (like Den or Ching). Not even my sister is as OC as I am. Hehe.
