What type of book reader are you? That’s what a recent article in The Atlantic Wire aimed to help you answer. Are you always starting a book with enthusiasm only to be distracted by another book and never finishing the first one? Then obviously, you pick up a third book and forget all about the second? If so, you may be a “promiscuous reader.” Or do you only have time to read for the 5 minutes before you fall asleep every day? If so, you may be a “sleepy bedtime reader.” But the types outlined in this article left a lot out, and an addendum was written with many other types, including my favorite type, “the Cat”: “Sometimes, if you’re lucky, your owner has left [a book] open, and you lie on top of it and let its smooth pages touch your whiskers.”
I think most readers are probably a combination of several categories. When reading through these, I really identified with being both a “book buster” and a “critic”. What type are you?
