Quiz Outcomes

  • 1.
    The Philosopher
    You will never lose your hunger for increasing your knowledge. You likely prefer nonfiction and "think" books, but you can enjoy a novel if it teaches you something. You hold the deep conviction that, although the world may work in mysterious ways, you can decode those ways if you apply yourself. For you, the best books are ones that help you solve the puzzle of human existence.
  • 2.
    The Endurance Reader
    Like a long-distance runner, you have powers of endurance and you don't mind tackling epics or long sagas that cover varied terrain and multiple generations. Covering so much ground appeals to you because you enjoy the sensation of slowly compassing the distance you cross, enfolding the landscape into yourself. You read pretty much anything and everything. You are a natural-born bookworm. You derive satisfaction from the achievement of completing the journey.
  • 3.
    The Picky Reader
    You do not love reading, but you definitely don't hate it either. You will read for fun occasionally, but the book has to be really good and catch your attention in the first chapter.
  • 4.
    The Skimmer
    You are not a reader! You could care less about reading and books. You only read when you have to, and even then you just skim over the content. You would much rather be outdoors, shopping, or on your phone.
