Add up your scores
If you choose mostly 1 – You’re a reader who is in touch with their feelings, loves the classics and if reading were an olumpic sport, you would get a gold medal
Mostly 2 – You like to relax. Life is about reading and taking naps, thinking about books and living in fictional worlds. Quite right too.
Mostly 3 -You’re a bit like Vera – you like your morning routine and things you know you are going to enjoy reading but then again you also like a clug and going out with friends but only if you can read when you get home.
Mostly 4 – A mixed bag of a reader. You enjoy classics such as The English Patient and those epic reads, enjoy going out to a noisy club but you do love talking to anyone who will listen about your reading pleasures. A great mix!
