Hi guys! Sorry I didn’t post yesterday as I said I would, but it was a rainy day and I started a good book (Paper Towns by John Green. I have half of it left so I’m hoping I can finish it later or tomorrow sometime.) and rain just makes for a perfect reading day. I was wondering…Should I do a used book haul? I went to a used book store two days and got a few and I’m going to a used book sale in a few minutes… Anyway, today I will be doing the Reading Habits Book Tag that I’ve been wanting to do for a while and I was tagged by Catherine and I just want to say thank you and if you don’t follow her yet, please go do so because she is so sweet and I love her so much♥ So let’s get into it, shall we?
Do You Have A Certain Place At Home For Reading?
I usually like to stay in my room, in my chair or on my bed, but when I want to be with my family (even though they can get loud), I’ll come out to the living room and sit in the chair out there, because 1. It’s faciing the side of the TV so I won’t get distracted and 2.It’s just comfortable…
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Honestly? I love bookmarks, but every time I try to use one, I end up losing it and when I try to find a stray sheet of paper, it doesn’t show up so I end up just having to remember the page number I’m on.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?
I prefer to stop after I finish the chapter I’m reading but most of the time that can’t really happen and I like to finish the sentence I’m reading. (Cat, we’re the same on that one,)
Do you eat or drink while reading?
….Yes. I love to either have some tea, my water bottle or a cappuccino thing. I will also read while eat. Very carefully of course.
Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
I love to listen to music (either classical or the radio in which I don’t know most of the songs because I live in the shadows…) but for me, the television can get distracting and really really bright lights, so I have no idea what that’s about…
One book at a time or several at once?
Lately I’ve only been reading one at a time because I feel more invested in that singular story, but sometimes I’ll read two at the maximum.
Reading at home or everywhere?
I mainly read at home, but I take my book everywhere with me and people have been forcing me to leave it at home and I don’t like it…
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
I usually only read silently, but when I’m reading outside (alone of course) I will read out loud in a somewhat dramatic way….If not that, I sometimes like to read to kids at the library.
Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
NOOO. I don’t like spoilers. But if I do end up seeing a spoiler on the internet, I will still read the book because I’m that person who wants to know how it happened (*cough cough* The Selection.).
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
Um…I wouldn’t do it on purpose, obviously, but it does happen and I don’t really like it but I’ve sort of taught myself how to hold it properly so it won’t break.
Do you write in your books?
Okay, you guys are going to hate me but technically I don’t write in them, I highlight quotes that I like from the book and then add a sticky note. I feel like admitting this makes me a murderer but I would never do it in a library book or a book I don’t think I’m not going to keep.
Thank you for reading! Do we have any habits that are the same?
