I was tagged by Dee ( @thebookishkhaleesi ) to do the Reading Habits tag. Thank you once more for tagging me! ❤
- Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
I mostly read in my room. It’s the place I feel most comfortable in and I love the fact that I can close my door and enjoy the silence while reading. Where in my room do I read? In my bed. It’s very big and has many pillows on it, which makes it the perfect place for reading and relaxing.
- Bookmark or random piece of paper?
I tend to use bookmarks. I own quiet a few beautiful ones and I love using them. If, for some reason, I can’t find a bookmark (or I am out and don’t have one) I don’t mind using a piece of paper. Still I prefer bookmarks as they look beautiful in books.
- Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?
I have to finish a chapter before stopping. I really hate leaving off in the middle of one, it just bothers me. Also I don’t set myself a certain amount of pages – I read however much I feel like each day.
- Do you eat or drink while reading?
I do drink while I am reading, mostly water or coffee. I can eat if I am reading on my Kindle, otherwise I find it really inconvenient. Though I don’t tend to eat and read as I usually watch anime or tv shows while eating.
- Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
I usually read in silence. I find it easiest to concentrate that way and I get much more reading done. If I do listen to music it’s instrumental – mostly movie soundtracks. (I especially love the Lord of the Rings one!)
- One book at a time or several at once?
I read more books at once, though not books with the same genre. I like reading more books at once because I can choose what I want to read each day and it gives me a variety to choose from. (That is also why I don’t read multiple books from the same genre, as I want to have variety.) I don’t get the stories or characters mixed up, so I find that reading several books at once suits me just fine.
- Reading at home or everywhere?
I read everywhere. Wherever I go I take a book with me, so I read on the bus, train, while waiting. Basically I read whenever I get the chance to do so.
- Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Silently. Though I do read short stories and poems out loud with my best friend.
- Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
I sometimes skim pages if I find parts to be very boring and that only happens when I am not enjoying the book. It’s very rare that that happens. I don’t read ahead, I never feel the need to do so.
- Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I don’t break the spines. I try to keep them like new. If it does happen for some reason I don’t get upset about it or anything. I just prefer them looking like new.
- Do you write in your books?
I do not write in my books. Period.
