The Reading Habits Book Tag

Reading Habits book tag

I’m picking up this tag from In A Messy World because I love reading and this is fun!

BOOKMARKS OR RANDOM PIECES OF PAPER?

Usually bookmarks, but sometimes a hold slip from the library

STOP READING RANDOMLY OR AFTER A CHAPTER/CERTAIN AMOUNT OF PAGES?

There has to be some sort of natural break in the action.  For me long chapters that aren’t divided into sections are annoying and sometimes even a dealbreaker.

DO YOU HAVE A CERTAIN PLACE AT HOME FOR READING?

Bed!  Then again, that’s probably my favourite spot for just about anything….

DO YOU EAT OR DRINK WHILST READING?

I guzzle water pretty constantly.  Or tea would be nice.

 MULTITASKING: MUSIC OR TV WHEN READING?

No.  Absolutely not.  I have no idea how people can listen to things and read, because I just can’t do it.

ONE BOOK AT A TIME OR SEVERAL?

Usually one at a time, but sometimes I’ll have one fiction and one non-fiction on the go.  Or if there’s a book that I don’t really like but I’ve gotten so far I figure I should probably just finish it, I might start another book as an excuse not to read the original book.

READING AT HOME OR EVERYWHERE?

Home is preferable, but other places are acceptable if there’s not too much noise.

READING OUT LOUD OR SILENTLY?

Silently.  I think I’d annoy myself if I read out loud.

BREAKING THE SPINE OR KEEPING IT LIKE NEW?

In an ideal world, keep it like new, but in the real world, break the spine.

DO YOU WRITE IN YOUR BOOKS?

No!  And it drives me bonkers if I get a book from the library and someone’s written in it.  Get a notebook already!

 

I tag any book lover who happens to be reading!

    I like to read quietly too. Mostly on the sofa, but I have known to be in my own world in a cafe and read. One time, while on holiday, I read a book while on the beach front. I absolutely loved it.

    Bed for reading is my preferred spot too, and I tend to only read one book unless I have a non-fiction or self-help style book on the go too. Fab tag!! 🙂
