      I think it may skew low for people like us—bloggers and heavy readers—because we are not only reading a lot of what’s new, we’re also paying attention to what other bloggers and readers are doing (via sites like Book Riot as well as Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram and the like.) It means that regardless of our age, we’re aware of trends like organizing books by color, or whatever. We’re not stuck in the habits of reading and organization that we learned as children and young adults, so it’s harder to pin down our age.

      I got 32 on the Build Your Library, too — which is about 20 years off! And I though you’d like the Fiction-Food Cafe, with your interest in cooking. 🙂

      I know at least one person got 24, so I don’t think it’s completely rigged… but maybe 32 is the upper limit? If so, Buzzfeed has a misguided idea of who their readers are (or they figure we’re all susceptible to flattery!)

    Lol, I got 32 also, apparently a common conclusion. Proving book enthusiasts can’t be cubbyholed. I know they were expecting some to choose sets like Divergent and assume they’re young folk when many of us mid-aged bloggers read the series. So… not accurate but fun.

    I love all the links you have today! The BEA selections, the fiction-food, the Mantel article, all interesting to me. Thanks again!
