I took the quiz!

If you aren't sure what quiz I am talking about, it is a book personality quiz that tells you what kind of reader you are, and the most common types of books you like to read or look for while shopping for them.
At first I was thinking "this quiz can't possibly know what kind of reader I am!" But I was totally wrong! This describes the type of reader I am, and I couldn't even put it into the terms it gave me if I hadn't of taken it!

It turns out I am 3 different types:

Your responses showed you fitting into three different personalities:

Involved Reader: You don't just love to read books, you love to read about books. For you, half the fun of reading is the thrill of the chase - discovering new books and authors, and discussing your finds with others.

Exacting Reader: You love books but you rarely have as much time to read as you'd like - so you're very particular about the books you choose.

Eclectic Reader: You read for entertainment but also to expand your mind. You're open to new ideas and new writers, and are not wedded to a particular genre or limited range of authors.
These are very detailed in my opinion, because all 3 of them describe me perfectly. I totally adore the first one, Involved Reader, because I ABSOLUTELY love to read book blogs, and about books, and all of that jazz. It does give me a thrill on other readers opinions and their views. Everyone gives me ways of looking at something differently than what I would expect, and that is exactly what the reviews on different blogs show! Ha, and the Exacting Reader is somewhat like me... I do have time to read and all, it's just sometimes I don't feel like it.

Such as now, I am so ashamed of myself for the month, because I have only read ONE BOOK! AHHHHHHH! That's horrible, but if you have ever gone into that dreadful non-reading faze where picking up a book for a while will just kill you, then you understand. But, I think I am getting over that now (hopefully because I am getting tons of review books in the mail!!!) So, let's just pretend this month of reading never happened.
And as for the last one, I am totally open to new authors, because how are you supposed to find your favorite if you don't try new things? I have so many "favorite" authors, I don't really have a #1.

Hopefully I can get 1 or 2 books done before June comes!
If you still haven't taken this quiz, what's stopping you!!! Get with it! Ha, I'm just kidding, but you really should check it out by clicking here! If you do decide to take it, please, let me know if you blog about it by commenting! I'd love to hear from you!
