Stressful times call for a book tag, don’t you think?
Today I thought I’d take a break from studying and do the Reading Habits Book Tag to get me in the mood for a night of reading.
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
My bed is usually were I do most of my reading because it’s out of the way of everybody else but if I’m home alone I like to get curled up on the couch, normally with my two dogs on either side of me.
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
I started off with a bunch of bookmarks and now I have … 2? My favourite which had a picture of a sloth got eaten by my devil of a cat. I’ve also been known to stuff toilet paper in my books to hold my spot and then never change it out until I finish the book.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?
I can stop whenever unless there’s some big thing happening and then I need to get to the end of the chapter but other then that I’m pretty good at just getting to the end of a page and putting my book down if I have something to do or just aren’t in the mood.
Do you eat or drink whilst reading?
Nope for the simple reason that I can’t multitask. If I drink and read I have to move my book a safe distance away from the drink cause I’m a clutz and if I eat then I get distracted by the crumbs or something and it just doesn’t work out ever.
Multitasking: Music or TV whilst reading?
I’m not too bad with TV in the background if it’s not something I would typically watch but I’m easily distracted so I prefer silence or random people talking.
One book at a time or several?
I normally focus my full attention on one physical book and then have an ebook on standby which takes me longer to read unless I pick it up at 1am in which case I usuall end up finishing it in one night. During the school year I also always have a different book in Spanish I have to read for class.
Reading at home or everywhere?
Home and school. Literally anywhere else and I’ll get distracted and/or try to murder people for no doubt interrupting me.
Read out loud or silently in your head?
In my head because my own voice is grating unless one specific line is so amazing that it needs to be read aloud.
Do you read ahead or skip pages?
I’m a terrible person but I totally skip ahead especially if there’s some big thing happening or a character I love is in mortal danger. I do normally go back and read what I skimmed over though.
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I try to keep it new and nice but then it gets wrinkled and broken and I don’t mind it in the end because it makes them look read.
Do you write in your books?
Noooo. Not even my name but that might be because I’m always to lazy to get up and find a pencil to write with.
So I had fun doing this tag, I unfortunately can’t remember where I found this so I don’t know who created it. I’m hoping this get’s me in the mood for finishing books tonight.
