Reading Habits Book Tag
I recently spotted this Reading Habits Book Tag on Rathertoofondofbooks blog and thought it would be fun to join in
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
Yes I love to sit on my recliner settee in my living room and read, I’m not one of those people who can read in bed I’m afraid, I can never find a comfortable position to read in!
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Has to be a Bookmark, I have a few that I keep handy, but my favourite one is one that hooks over the page and belonged to my beloved nan, so I always have a reminder of her when I’m reading
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop at the end of a chapter/a certain amount of pages?
I’m slightly OCD when it comes to this, I have to stop at the end of a chapter! I’m sure I must drive my husband mad at times, because he will be ready to go somewhere and ask if I’m ready? And I will always reply “I will just read the rest of the chapter”
Do you eat or drink while reading?
I’m a coffee addict! There is nothing better than reading a book with a good cup of coffee, it makes the whole experience more pleasurable. I don’t eat when I read as I can’t seem to get my Hand to mouth coordination right, and end up with food every where, not a good look for my kindle or books
Multitasking: music or TV whilst reading?
I normally have the TV on but the sound turned down, so why have the TV on at all? I hear you ask, I really don’t know the answer it’s just something I do out of habit I think!
One book at a time or several at once?
I read one book at a time I applaud those who can read more than one book at a time, but me being me, I would end up getting story lines/characters muddled up!
Read at home or everywhere?
I read mostly at home now, when I commuted to work I would a read on the bus to/from work and during my lunch break, but now I’ve changed jobs I walk to work, and my breaks always get interrupted, so again no time to read!
Read aloud or silently in your head?
In my head, I haven’t read aloud for at least 17 years, since my son no longer needed me to read him a “goodnight” story
Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
Sometimes if a books not keeping my attention I may just skip a few pages or read the ending.
Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
I hate breaking the spine on my books, most of my books looks unread as I’m so careful with them, and not in a million years would I turn down the page as a book mark!
Do you write in books?
No never, I always use post it notes!
