I have wanted to do the ‘Reading Habits Tag’ for a while now, and this week the lovely Isabell from ‘Dreaming With Open Eyes’ has tagged me in it. So thank you so much Isabell! 🙂 Go and check out her lovely blog!!
So, let’s get started….
I do (It’s quite similar to Isabell’s answer for this one!) My favourite place to read is my bed. I like to be relaxed and comfy when reading, and my bed is the perfect place for that! During the summer though, I like to spend my days reading in the garden or the conservatory, soaking up the sunshine!
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
I wish I could say bookmark, but I’m afraid it’s a random piece of paper! I used to have so many lovely bookmarks, but they all seem to have vanished! I think I end up leaving them in the last book I read, and then forget which book that is!
In fact, this has made me want to get one – That’s what I will do this week – No more random piece of paper. It’s time to purchase a proper bookmark!
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter or certain number of pages?
Nooo, definitely not! I have to finish reading at the end of a chapter. I literally can’t ever stop reading at random points during a book. If I am on the train then I won’t start a chapter unless I know I have time to finish it – is that weird? 😛
Do you eat or drink while reading?
Not really… I can’t say I’m the best at multitasking. If I am doing something else whilst reading, then I won’t take any of it in. I would just end up re-reading it to understand it properly!
Do you watch TV or listen to music while reading?
Again, I can’t do this otherwise I won’t take in the words I am reading. Sometimes I probably could if I am really into the book, but usually I get distracted quite easily and end up having to re-read everything again.
One book at a time or several at once?
One book at a time! I get too confused otherwise, and if I prefer one to the other then I would probably give up reading the other one!
Reading at home or everywhere?
Mainly at home, but I often read on the train as well. Since getting an E-reader though, I bring it with me more than I would if I had a big chunky book to carry!
Silently. But if I can’t take in something, then I will read it out loud slowly until I digest what it is saying!
Do you ever read ahead or skip pages?
No, I don’t. I used to when I was little, but what’s the point? I don’t want to know what is going to happen, I want it to build up a suspense and surprise me!
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I love keeping it like new! But there is always that one book that you have read soo many times before, that it can’t help but have a creased spine!
Do you write in your books?
No. The only time I ever write in books is if it is a book that I have to study for university/school. If it is for exam/assignment purposes then I will write in it, but if it is for pleasure then I will never write in it.
I really enjoyed doing this tag, and I’m really glad I have finally got the chance to do it! 😀 Thank you again to Isabell for tagging me!
Remember to link me to it if you take part so that I can read your answers 🙂
