Look at me doing another book tag! I love seeing how other people read, I think it’s the most fascinating thing, together with organization and daily routines. 😀 Thank you, Rafaela for tagging me! Make sure to check her blog if you don’t follow her already!
|1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?|
Not really. I always prefer to read on my bed. I can sit, I can lay down, I can semi-lay / semi-sit. It’s the most comfortable place to read.
|2. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?|
I can stop reading whenever, but I prefer to read until the end of the chapter and then put the book down.
|3. Bookmark or random piece of paper?|
Bookmark, always bookmark. I usually pick one bookmark when I start a new book and it lives there. Very rarely I’d need a random piece of paper to use as a bookmark.
|4. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?|
Neither? I prefer when it’s quite. But I don’t mind TV. Music, on the other hand, is a total no-no.
|5. Do you eat or drink while reading?|
All. The. Time! Lol I always need to either have a cup of tea or coffee, or something to snack on. If my metabolism wouldn’t be as good as it is, I would definitely need to make some adjustments to this habit.
|6. Reading at home or everywhere?|
Everywhere. I love reading outside, at the beach, at the park. Anywhere with sunshine. But I also read a lot at my bf’s place or cafes. Basically everywhere.
|7. One book at a time or several at once?|
Several at once. I usually have 2-3 books on the go. I like to have several options for my reading time.
|8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?|
Uh, silently ofc. :O Reading out loud would be too slow, as I often don’t read full words just see the first couple of letters and jump to the next one.
|9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?|
I’m guilty of skimming or sometimes even skipping pages of the books I’m not enjoying. I skipped many pages in «The Curse so Dark and Lonely» and don’t regret it.
|10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?|
Keeping it like new. As a result, I often barely open my mass-market paperbacks when I read them. Lol
|11. Do you write in your books?|
No, but not because I want to keep them in pristine condition. It’s more because finding a pen or even stop reading to write something down will pull me out of the story. What I usually do when reading physical books is put small squares of paper every 50 pages or so, at the end of chapters. So when I get to that point, I need to stop reading and write down my thoughts and it helps tremendously with reviews later on.
|12. Who do you tag?|
This was a lot of fun! I didn’t want to tag a lot of people, but if you would like to participate you’re Tagged! 😀 Also, if you don’t feel like making a separate post for this, you can always share your answers in the comments below. ❤
