Obsessive Compulsive bookworm.

And I can't argue with that.

However, I have been working on Anna Karinina for almost two years now.

Hm. How long did Tolstoy work on it?

I came up a very strong Book Snob; the quiz accused me of reading only for the social credit it gives me. If that's the case I might as well be illiterate.

What Kind of Reader Are You?
Your Result: Dedicated Reader

You are always trying to find the time to get back to your book. You are convinced that the world would be a much better place if only everyone read more.

Literate Good Citizen was a close (very close) second, with Obsessive-Compulsive Bookworm not far behind!

I feel relieved. I didn't want to be a literate Good Citizen somehow. It did feel a little like a facebook quiz.

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.

Dedicated Reader is at 95% even though the quiz is rigged towards books and I read some genre fiction, history, and theory. Otherwise I'm strictly a periodicals man. Mostly wonky periodicals, but periodicals. I also rarely finish a book unless it has a plot.

I skipped the group-of-books question entirely as I've read few of any of the books mentioned. I re-focused the questions about Post Office lines and losing luggage because I always travel with at least three periodicals and sometimes a book or two.

Other categories:
Obsessive compulsive Reader 90%
Book Snob 85%
Literate Good Citizen 75%
Fad Reader 7%

Non-Reader 0%
Bookworm 0%

Rich: Just a word to say that it's great to see you here. I was worried after the "Politics" forum went away that would go away, too. I'm glad that's not the case.
