The best series are the ones that actually stop at trilogy length and don't go on forever. Those I enjoy. The super long ones, not so much!

Cute meme. :) I snack while I read too hehe.

And I can't do without my bookmarks. When I was little I used to dogear the pages *shudders at the thought*. I would scream at someone who did that now haha!

I hear you about the series. You wait and wait for the next one and then it's awful! Frustrating!

I've gotten pretty good with reading at home. I can tune out the background kid noise but I sooo prefer reading at lunch. A closed door really helps!

Ya, reading with one hand is still important. I wasn't thinking about that when I said ice cream. Actually I don't think I was thinking anything except "ice cream!" :)

I usually get my reading done at lunch, too.

By size, do you mean cramming them in where ever they fit? That would be me. :)

You're right that some series end up being disappointments. And it's good to know I'm not the only one too lazy to look up words! ;)
