Everyone seems to have their own unique style of reading, so I thought it would be fun to compile a list of some of the different ‘types’ of readers I know!
Once this readers starts a book they will retreat into their reading cave. You will not see this reader again until the book has been finished. Although in rare instances this reader might be spotted while darting out of their cave to gather food.
This type of reader thinks ahead and they are always prepared with reading material. They are ready to fill their daily commutes with their current book obsession. Free time is reading time.
A Book for Every Room
While some of us might balk at the thought of reading multiple books at once, some readers embrace the challenge. So much so that the more veracious readers of this type will have a book in each room of their home, so they are never without a book they are currently reading!
The Speed Reader
This type is a much faster reader than many of us. They will often have others comment in shock about how quickly they are able to get through books. While speed reading definitely has its benefits it also necessitates an ever growing need for new books!
In contrast, this type of reader goes through a book at a very slow pace. Whether they are being methodical in their reading or they are being interrupted by other things in their life, reading a book becomes a long process. This process can become so protracted that they might even have to go back and re-read passages that they have forgotten in their reading gaps. Slowly but surely they finish their book.
The Accidental Night Owl
I think most of us have accidentally fit into this category. We pick up a book at a reasonable hour, and tell our selves that we will only read for a little while. After what feels like an instant we look at the clock and it is somehow 3 am. Late night reading can be a dangerous endeavour.
The Self Spoiler
I admit I also fit into this category. While reading thrillers once the tension has become too much, I have the terrible habit of checking to see how the book ends! While self spoiling might be a controversial topic, I am positive there are a few more people out there like myself!
Please let me know if you fit into any of these types, or many of them! I’d also love to hear about any other types of readers I might have missed!Also, Happy Friday the 13th!
