What kind of a reader are you?

I took a quiz that is going around on some children’s writing blogs. I’m not generally a fan of such quizzes because the multiple choice answers never seem to include one that fits me. These quizzes assume a sort of one-size-fits-all, or more accurately, four-sizes-fit-all, and that, of course, is not true.

Yeah, I’m making a mountain out of a molehill here. The object is to choose the answer that best fits. But who really wants to wear an ill-fitting label?

This did nothing to change my opinion about quizzes, but here are the results. They fit a little, but not perfectly. The most interesting part is discovering how to insert the quiz here! The black lines rating each of the categories don’t seem to work. There was no line in the non-reader category in the results I got on the quiz site, and the others were of varying lengths. You can follow the link at the bottom and take the quiz, too.

  1. I think I was hurt by the “Did you read Cliiff Notes in High School” question. Okay, so I wasn’t the best student…. But that was 30 years ago! 🙂

  2. I don’t think I ever *saw* a Cliff Notes book in high school. But I was not a big reader until after college, when it was no longer a requirement.
