Hello all, I hope you are all well and keeping yourselves safe! I love looking at all the wonderful book tags that are out and about at the minute. I stumbled across this one quite a while back but really wanted to do it. I can’t find the orignal tag but it is all about the different reading habits we have. Here is the reading habits tag!
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
I moved into my very first house with my boyfriend, David, a couple of weeks ago and I am still figuring out my reading spot in the house. Currently if the weather is nice I am loving reading outside on the back patio. But, I also love reading just sat in bed or on the couch in the living room. We are hoping to have our spare room made into a games/reading room in the next few months so I cannot wait to read in there very soon!
Bookmark, dog-earring or random piece of paper?
Always a bookmark! I have a little mug full of bookmarks so whenever I start a new book I grab a new bookmark. If I’m out and about when I start a new book though and find myself without a bookmark, I will always find a random piece of paper rather then dog-earring a book.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter / a certain amount of pages?
I always try and read a book chapter by chapter. I hate stopping mid-way through a chapter because I always feel like I’m leaving the book somewhere that it shouldn’t be left. If I’m busy though and reading in the only chance I can then I sometimes stop at the end of a paragraph.
Do you eat or drink whilst reading?
I always have a drink next to me at most times throughout the day, so when I am reading there is always a drink next to me. It could be a fizzy drink, a hot chocolate or just plain water. I can’t really eat whilst reading though I just can’t focus on both reading and eating.
Music or TV whilst reading?
It really depends where I’m reading. If I am on my work break or in bed then I have nothing in the background. But, if I am in the living room or at home on my own then I have either the TV or music on in the background. It doesn’t distract me but keeps me company in a way.
One book at a time or several at once?
I am currently reading three books. One I am co-reading with Sarah from The Little Contemporary Corner, the other is a a physical copy of a book and then the third is an e-book on my kindle! I need help! I go from struggling to consume one book to consuming three all at once.
Reading at home or everywhere?
I can read absolutely anywhere. I have a book with me anywhere that I go so I can literally read whenever and wherever I am and I love that!
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Silently always silently.
Do you read ahead of even skip pages?
I do neither of these things. It just isn’t in my reading nature to do so.
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I used to hate breaking the spines. Like I would go out of my ways to keep my books in pristine condition. But, recently I have stopped really caring. If I break the spine then so be it. If I don’t then also so be it. Read books however you want and keep them like new or make them look well read, it is however you like!
Do you write in your books?
Nope maybe in the future but not at the minute!
There you have it, the reading habits book tag! If you want to do this, tag yourself and show me your results! Also, let me know about your reading habits in the comments below!
