What Is Your Reading Personality?

I found this quiz online and decided to take it, although I kind of already knew what I would turn out to be... An eclectic reader.

According to this quiz I "read for entertainment but also to expand [my] mind. [I'm] open to new ideas and new writers, and [am] not wedded to a particular genre or limited range of authors..."

I tend to read whatever book strikes my mood, whether that means selecting my next book to open for the fist time or deciding which of the three books I am currently reading to pick up at that moment.

Do you know what your reading personality is? Leave a comment and let me know.

I'm an All-Rounder!
Your responses showed you fitting equally into all four reading 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.
Serial Reader: Once you discover a favorite writer you tend to stick with him/her through thick and thin.
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.

There are three out of the seven questions that I'm definitely between two options: So I switched them around and I'm either an All Rounder or Eclectic. I know I go in spurts, sometimes, I'll be very much an Exacting, I rarely am a Serial: the author has to be REALLY good (Austen is one of the few, and even then, I have books of hers I go "eh" about) and yes, I'm DEFINITELY an involved, and yes, inherently eclectic.

I'm three: Exacting, Serial, and Eclectic. And it's accurate, too! I always like quizzes that know what they're talking about.

Apparently I'm an 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."

And all this time I just thought I was more of an ADD reader...
