Carnivorous. I’ve never been able to regulate my reading like some people can, thirty minutes before bed or over morning coffee, even though it sounds like bliss. It’s either all or nothing, most of the time. If I can put the book down, I most likely won’t pick it up again. I love reading while I eat, which has lead to a lot of my books being covered in multicolored fingerprints and their spines being crushed by whatever heavy object I found to prop it open. I’m jealous of people who can keep their books in spotless condition – the more I loved a book, the worse it looks.
