1: Where do you read?

Anywhere I have a book and sufficient light :) I read a lot on public transport at the moment, and sometimes it feels that I read even more while waiting for said public transport ...

2: When do you read?
When I can - sadly working in a library doesn't mean you get to read all day ...

3: Are you a skipper or a plodder?
Mostly a plodder. I am getting better at giving up on things that are dreadful though - I won't waste time that could be spent reading something good.

4: Do you cheat? (ie look at the end before you get there)
Generally not.

5: Single or multiple reader? (one book or many books at once)
Multiple mostly. Sometimes I get down to one book, but I don't let that state of affairs last very long.

6: What books do you remember from when you were a child? 
I have a lot of fond memories of endless Blyton stories, but going even earlier I have a sure and certain memory of some Poddington Peas

 What have you always wanted to read, but never have? 
I really can't think of anything off hand

8: What else do you do while you are reading?
Travel. Wait for buses. I read on the loo (sorry if that is TMI). Watch TV. Listen to music.

9: Do you feel guilty about reading? 
Yeah, quite often there are other things I should be doing.

10: Do you reread books? 
Oh yes. Probably about 1/3-1/2 my reading in a given year is rereads.

Who do you talk to about reading? 
Anyone and everyone. Working in a library helps with that. I also bore people on my flist every month and talk on another forum

12: How do you discover new authors? 
Browsing - both in book shops and libraries. Recommendations. Reviews. Adverts.

What Be Your Nerd Type?
Your Result: Literature Nerd

Does sitting by a nice cozy fire, with a cup of hot tea/chocolate, and a book you can read for hours even when your eyes grow red and dry and you look sort of scary sitting there with your insomniac appearance? Then you fit this category perfectly! You love the power of the written word and it's eloquence; and you may like to read/write poetry or novels. You contribute to the smart people of today's society, however you can probably be overly-critical of works.

It's okay. I understand.

Everyone else has, so why not?

I am not sure how good an idea this is, but several friends have been on at me to get a LJ, so here I am.

Quite a lot to say this time as it has been a while since I updated.

But I must learn to knit socks

I had a mostly good birthday weekend away with my SO.

Yesterday I read the sad news that my online friend Cindy had died.

I just realise that I didn't update after the April round of the Bookmark Exchange, so here is a double update as I have just recieved my May bookmark.

I seem to have another 3 weeks of cataloguing, which I am really pleased about, even if my line manager doesn't seem to understand how much I enjoy it (I get to have a 'break' from cataloguing today to do design reading lists).

My friend Sarah is pregnant - and the baby is due on my birthday!

Yet another post detailing how I need to get my arse in gear (smaller gear to be precise, but there you go)

Both at the Tales of Robin Hood in Nottingham, and on BBC Breakfast when they were hyping the new series of Robin Hood there was scarcely any mention of Michael Praed.

Tell me, does this sound 'voluntary' to you?

There will be some holiday photos, once I have got them all uploaded and online.

You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

If there is someone on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal

Meme I stole from [profile] zeusgirl's LJ:

Book thing
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

(fession time, I did cheat a little, as I was at work when I saw this, and the nearst book to hand was a poetry book with only 58 pages  - not really suitable)

Although this is undoubtablely due to the hardware and software used, it is also considerably influenced by the file structure.
