I decided I’d do a Tag post today since I don’t know what to write for T5W. I found this on Magni Books blog. This seemed fun so, I thought I’d try it! ^_^
1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
Currently, I enjoy reading in bed the most. It is the MOST comfortable place in my house. I’m hoping when I move to my own place I can buy a sofa or a lounge chair OR a Lovesac just for reading on!
If you don’t know what a Lovesac is I suggest going to a store and checking them out! I used to work at one and wow…. I’m sold haha.
2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?
I’d like to say bookmark but, they are all packed away 😦 plus the library puts the slips of paper in the book so, I just use those!
3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?
I can just stop if needed but, I prefer to stop at the end of a chapter. It just feels… right. I don’t know how else to explain why it needs to be the chapter.
4. Do you eat or drink while reading?
I usually have water at hand no matter what. If I forget to refill my water bottle or the glass I get frustrated with myself. It is a good way to stay hydrated. Sometimes I eat as well. For example, if my fiance isn’t watching a show I want to watch during lunch then I’ll eat lunch in front of my book which is a lot easier if it is an e-book.
5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
I used to be like listening to music while reading. It brings more dynamic to the book sometimes. Now, I don’t do it as much. Mostly I’m listening to the TV in the background as I read. I can’t get away from the noise unfortunately but, I can change how I’m sitting so, I don’t get distracted by the screen.
6. One book at a time or several at once?
Unless I have an audiobook going on, I’m usually only reading one book. If I’m listening to an audiobook, then two because the audiobook is usually for crocheting or driving to.
I do put a TON of books as currently reading at once. If I have library books out, I put them under currently reading or the next netgalley book — goes under currently reading.
7. Reading at home or everywhere?
Everywhere but, I prefer to read at home. I’ll whip a book out in public if I’m waiting for someone/thing besides that most of my reading is done at home.
8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Silently. Although, I do read out loud if I don’t understand a passage and I”m trying to work it out.
9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
I used to read the last sentence of the last page when I couldn’t hold back anymore. Now, I’m okay. If the book isn’t good I’ll skip pages here and there to speed things along. Oh!! I also usually skip sex scenes… surprising since I read so much PNR but, yeah. Sex scenes usually make me roll my eyes so, I skim through to make sure I don’t miss anything important.
10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I don’t like breaking the spine. I don’t need the book to be like new I just hate when there are many creases on the spine or it turns ugghhh the poor book. Doesn’t look good on the shelf but, it looks loved so I mean… I keep it. I just don’t want it to seem like I damage my books.
11. Do you write in your books?
Only if it is a textbook. I sometimes right notes or highlight usually though I just write my notes on a notepad.
12. Who do you tag?
If you read this then you are tagged! Feel free to do this if you want 🙂
