Yeah, I'm pretty sure there isn't a person on the planet who'd be surprised at this result. (Although for the record, I still haven't figured out how to convince someone to give me a PhD in "reading genre fiction.")

What Kind of Reader Are You?
Your Result: Obsessive-Compulsive Bookworm
 

You're probably in the final stages of a Ph.D. or otherwise finding a way to make your living out of reading. You are one of the literati. Other people's grammatical mistakes make you insane.

I like to pretend I'm you

What Kind of Reader Are You?
Your Result: Book Snob
 

You like to think you're one of the literati, but actually you're just a snob who can read. You read mostly for the social credit you can get out of it.

I used to read like this! (smiles)

Pouring through book after book, but once I turned forty, my eyes sort of rebelled.

Even with perscription reading glasses, now, I can only do the book "marathons" when I'm in-between writing one of our books. After a whole day on the computer, my eyes are "done" for the day. Hah!

But I make big piles to read in-between. I received a small stack for Christmas that are calling to me.

Well, I do know people who read a lot more than I do (wish I had the time for more, but kids can keep you busy). I think my score mostly comes from the fact that there are very few books I won't at least try, so I have a pretty good variety on my bookshelves.

That's got to be hard, for someone as literary as you are to be so limited in your reading time. Are audio books an option for you?
