What Reader Species Are You? (From Laura e-Kelly’s Blog)


By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis

The advantage of keeping a pulse on social media networks especially those connected with the book and publishing community is discovering fun and creative finds like this Reader Species chart created by Laura E. Kelly (Click to view at original large size.):

What Species of Reader Are You?--Infographic

In reading the chart, I’ve confirmed that I am indeed:

  • part of the “Compulsive” genus
  • rooted as a “Cherisher”
  • am a “Book Preserver”
  • a “Book Worshipper”
  • and a “Book Hoarder”
  • I also show symptoms of a “Book Rescuer”
  • who is a “Comfort Reader”
  • and a “Book Swagger”
  • and a “Sleepy Bedtime Reader”
  • as well as a “Book Evangelist”
  • And while I’d like to think of myself as a “Complicated Reader,”
  • I’m actually a “Book Snob”
  • and a “Critic”
  • as well as “Reader the Obscure”
  • and must confess that I’m somewhat of a “Delayed Onset Reader.”
