This question is being posed by two Atlantic articles:
I would classify myself as
- Hopelessly Devoted to certain authors – I only read crime thrillers from three series of three authors, never any others
- an Audiobook Listener during my commute and sometimes while going for a run
- a Re-Reader (I’ve read Lord of the Rings several times and will re-read whole series of books if it’s been several years since the first time I read them)
The “It’s Complicated” Reader. You are a combination of many of these things and yet completely different, too. Each book means a new type of reader exists in your soul; you refuse to be defined or categorized. You are a freeform, wild, woolly entity. You do whatever you want. You’re probably a pisces. You’re definitely a reader.
