Based on my previous post focused on quizzes, you know: I enjoy taking them. Especially when they relate to vocabulary, grammar, writing, or reading.

So let’s take some book-related quizzes, shall we?

Be prepared to quiz away an hour of your life.

Are You More Paperback or Hardcover?

I got paperback – as it should be. (If you’ve ever tried reading a hardcover book while lying in bed, you know why I say this. Or if you’ve ever gone on a trip with a huge, 600-page hardcover book. Or if you typically travel with more than one book…like some of us do.)

Who Is Your Romance Novel Boyfriend?


Ah, romance. This one wasn’t as much fun for me as the others because I got someone from a book series I haven’t read: James Fraser from Outlander. I know some Outlander lovers, so I’ll have to ask if this is a good thing.

The Guess the First Sentence Quiz

Got only 15 out of 22 right on this one – I dare you to see how well you can do.

The Reading Personality Quiz

My result?

You are a Book Junkie.

You are addicted to books. Air, food and water apart, you need an uninterrupted dose of books in order to survive. You don’t just read books, you devour them. You can read just about anything. You can never have enough of books.

Only Real Book Lovers Remember These Small Details from These Iconic Books

Oh, I didn’t do well on this one. Not at all.

Can You Identify These Books by Their Covers?

Not too shabby:

You got 16 out of 20 right!
Not bad at all. Excellent, even! You have a great eye for design, while still staying focused on the most important stuff: the writing itself.

Can We Guess Your Age Based on Your Taste in Books?

Based on my result, which is below, the answer to this ever-important question is an emphatic “NO.”

You got: 16

You’re in the most exciting time of your life as a reader — you’ve got a whole world of books ahead of you! Take this time to explore, and read everything you can get your hands on.

And a Little Something(s) Extra Once You’re All Quizzed-Out:

  • Morten Just created a free text editor that limits the writer to using only the 1,000 most common words in the English language. The responses were varied…and hilarious.
  • Julie Proudfoot has some invaluable advice that I find myself, as an editor, reminding writers of frequently: Read that ish out loud.
  • Joel Orr spills the beans on verbs – and how to enhance them in your writing. Short and sweet and oh-so-true.

That was fun. Who said you couldn’t be 16 again? They just got proved wrong.

Thanks for the link to Joel Orr’s piece. Vivid verbs are invigorating words.

I got 16 of 22….not because I read them all, but because I am a precocious guesser.

I showed this to one of the girls I used to babysit. Sadly, she hasn’t done particularly well.

I think I’m going to introduce her to romance novel quizzes, though I’m not familiar with many.

I can’t say that I’m familiar with many either.

Oh well. I’m sure she’ll be a good girl and do her own searches. 🙂 Have a great day!
