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 believe this question was concocted specifically for me:

9. When the huge blockbuster film version of your favorite book comes to theatres, what do you do?

Heh, heh, heh. I leave it to you to figure out my response. It isn't that difficult. Unfortunately, "Boil the producer in oil" was not a given choice.

Yips! to Citizen Jen.

UPDATE: Speaking of compulsive, here's my latest purchase from the Devil's Website:

F and F.jpg

Frigates And Foremasts: The North American Squadron In Nova Scotia Waters, 17451815, by Julian Gwynn.

Which it's another Royal Navy Geekfest, ain't it?

Of course, I'll let you know what I think.

I'm a book snob. And they'll never turn Lord of the Rings into a movie -- it's far too much.


Er, I mean they'll never turn the Necronomicon into a movie.

Seriously, I don't know if I have a favorite book; that's sort of like having a favorite scotch - why limit yourself when there are so many tasty ones out there.

My profile was just about identical to yours, Robert. Question 6, "Which set of books have you read ALL of?" was pretty embarrassing, since I'd read everything on all four lists. Except The Bridges of Madison County. I'd admit to owning a bound set of Letters to Penthouse Forum before I'd touch that thing.

Hmm. Dedicated Reader.

The "Which set of books have you read ALL of?"- none. I went with the "Moby Dick, Huckleberry Finn..." one since I've read all but Moby Dick [in the best decision of my high school experience, I avoided AP English Lit.] Oh well.

Owlish - I went with that too, but have to confess that I never actually finished Wuthering Heights.

Fortunately, I've now reached the age where I can take Bronte or leave her alone and not feel ashamed about it.

With three young ones at home, I have spent more of my waking hours watching Spongebob than reading anything even approaching a novel since 1999.

It seems I am on the slow boat to moronville with no hope of rescue in the near future.
