What Is Your Reader Personality Type?

What Is Your Reader Personality Type?

I recently came across an article that claimed there are four different types of readers.

Book Club

1.     You read a variety of genres and authors. You need to discuss every book you read and you couldn’t survive without your book club.

Books Series

2.     You are devoted to a limited group of authors and read their books almost exclusively.

3.     You have limited reading time so you will only read books recommended by people you trust.

Reading and learning

4.     Your books must be educational as well as entertaining.
Do you fit into any of those categories?
I think I’ve belonged to all of them at different times and I still move between them.
·       When I was younger I read everything I could get my hands on. Nowadays I read something if it sounds interesting but I generally stick to thrillers. I don’t belong to a book club because I’m a mood reader and I probably wouldn’t want to read a specific book at a specific time.
·       I used to have a set of ‘go to’ authors and I bought every book they wrote as soon as it was published e.g. Lee Child and Linwood Barclay but I don’t have any ‘go to’ authors at the moment.
·       My tastes are similar to one or two book reviewers so if they like a book, I’m fairly confident I will like it too, but I read other books as well.
·       If a fiction book happens to be educational, that’s a bonus but I don’t look for fiction books that educate me. If I want to learn about a subject I look for a non-fiction book.
Next week I’ll look at different types of writers. In the meantime,  you can check out my thriller ‘Girl Targeted’ here.

    I like different kind of books: classics, fiction, romance… and since I’m a student: I also have to read books / economics, political science and International Relations, ideologies… and sometimes, when I feel down, I like to read girly books like Sophie Kinsella’s…

      I like Sophie Kinsella too. I re-read the Wedding Night recently. I laughed out loud in parts. I just finished I Owe You One. It wasn’t as funny but it was a pleasant read. You’re right. They really cheer you up.
