I saw this post originally on Ayse’s blog – creds to her for bringing this one to my attention! I had so much fun answering these questions and I tag any blogger who also wants to do this tag, especially my bookish friends. Without further ado, let the Reading Habits tag begin!
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
I usually love reading sitting on the sofa or in my bed, but to be honest, I can read comfortably anywhere in my house. Sometimes even whilst I’m cooking or brushing my teeth haha.
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
I use whatever I have to hand, bookmark, piece of paper, pictures etc. Recently though I got a couple new bookmarks from my local library so I’ve been using those.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter / a certain amount of pages?
I usually try to stop at the end of a chapter, just so I know exactly where I left off the next time I decide to read again. But when I’m in a rush I stop at a random place.
Do you eat or drink while reading?
I never eat whilst reading but I usually have a drink, whether it’s a huge glass of water, tea or juice.
Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
I prefer silence when reading but I can read whilst having background TV or music on too. My favourite playlists to read to are those low fi hip hop ones haha.
One book at a time or several at once?
One at a time. I would get super confused if I had several at once and I start forgetting things. I only read several at once when I was at Uni.
Reading at home or everywhere?
Everywhere – except in a car, I get motion sickness.
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Both. Only when I’m alone in my room I’ll read aloud sometimes, especially when it’s a nicely written passage – I like hearing it aloud.
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I used to be sooo against breaking the spine but now I don’t care. It’s hard to keep a book in mint condition, but I don’t break them on purpose, just happens over time. I love seeing books which have been read over and over again, the wear and tear shows it’s been loved.
Do you write in your books?
NEVER. what sacrilege!
Hope you guys enjoyed reading my answers to this tag – was really fun to answer!
What are some of your reading habits? Do you have certain routines or can you read wherever and whenever? Would love to chat in the comments!
Until next time,
