On My Mind Monday (4) Different Kinds of Readers, which are you?

On My Mind Monday with Paranormal Sisters!
Where every Monday we pick a topic and tell you our thoughts on it. It might be weekly or every other week. Haven't decided yet. And if you have a topic you want our thoughts on, post a comment and we might decide to do it.
A week ago I saw a status on David James Facebook page and I just absolutely loved it. So I thought I’d share it with you guys. I hope you don’t mind David! ;)
It’s a status where you can see what kind of reader you are. I’m a Slow Dancer and The Addict, I read books slower than most and I just can’t help but buy more than I can read, as you can tell from our I am a Book Hoarder feature haha.
 And Tasha:
I am a mix of things. Sometimes I’m Devourer and read books fast and sometimes I’m a Slow Dancer and take my time with them. I don’t have to be an Addict because I can just raid my sister’s stash. I will also admit that at times, I can be a Die-Hard. I will read almost all genres but there will be times when I’m just reading book after book of the same genre.
So there’s ours, what’s yours?  

"The Devourer: Each book is a snack for this kind of reader—but it doesn’t mean that s/he won’t enjoy each book just as much.
The Lover: Books read by this kind of reader are read in hidden, stolen moments at the most unexpected times.
The Slow Dancer: Books are a treat that this kind of reader savors. Slow and steady wins this reader’s race, as his/her eyes take in and... taste each and every word.
The Addict: Books are a conquest to this kind of reader. S/he will buy more books than s/he can read, but s/he will ALWAYS have something to read.
The Classic: Books of the past are a gift to this reader. Prose in the style of early contemporary authors, or stories written long ago, are favorites for this reader.
The Die-Hard: Genres are a way of life for this reader. S/he finds a niche and sticks to it—veering from what s/he knows for short bursts of time.
The Advocate: This reader is a lover of books. S/he is not just a reader, but an advocate of reading—hoping that the future will contain more readers.
The Juggler: The reader that inexplicably is reading six books at any given moment."
