writing in books horrify you?

If I come back to it quickly.

Fiction, mostly.

Hard copy or audiobooks?
Hard copy or e-book.

Are you a person who tends to read to the end of chapters, or are you
able to put a book down at any point?

Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can
you read more than one at a time?
