Reading Habits Book Tag!

1. Do you have a certain place in your home for reading? - Yeah, my bed or my couch! Best lighting in my house so I can keep reading longer until I absolutely have to get up to turn on a light.

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper? - Both, but I try to use a bookmark if I can.

3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop reading after a chapter / certain number of pages? - I have to set a page goal, usually to the next hundred.

4. Do you eat or drink while reading? - If it’s an ebook, yes. I would never eat and read a physical book at the same time. I don’t trust myself like that.

5. Multitasking: music or TV while reading? - Music! I like to pull up long playlists and read till they’re done.

6. One book at a time or several at once? - Both. Usually several, but I’ll drop other books for an important one.

7. Reading at home or everywhere? - Everywhere!

8. Reading out loud or silently in your head? - Silently in my head.

9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages? - Nope! Sometimes I skim but then I feel bad and read the passage fully.

10. Barking the spine or keeping it like new? - Like new!

11. Do you write in your books? - Absolutely not.

.Reading Habits Tag.
  1. Do you have a certain place in your home for reading?? Normally in my room on my bed, sometimes in the living room in the armchair. 
  2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?? Bookmark always, although I tend to use train tickets for my magazine. 
  3. Can you  just stop reading or do you have to stop reading after a chapter / certain number of pages?? I prefer stopping at the end of a chapter but at work that's not always an option, when times up, it's up.
  4. Do you eat or drink while read?? Oh yes, I do a lot of reading at work in my lunch. Surprisingly my books are quite clean. 
  5. Multitasking: music or TV while reading?? Either or, if I'm at home I tend to have something on but if I'm on a train I'll have music playing as well. 
  6. One book at a time or several at once?? Several, from about 11/12 I would read at least two maybe three books swapping every week. I now swap monthly.
  7. Reading at home or everywhere?? Anywhere really.
  8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?? In my head, but I have in the past read out loud when I've struggled to get to grips with a book. 
  9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?? Nope, nope, nope.
  10. Barking the spine or keeping it like new?? Keeping it like new.
  11. Do you write in your books?? Heck no!! Are you insane?!

Reading Habits

1. Do you have a certain place in your home for reading?  Couch.

 

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper? ereader bookmark usually.  Otherwise with print books if I have bookmark handy will use it and if not a random piece of paper (usually shake out magazines for those loose cards).

 

3. Can you  just stop reading or do you have to stop read after a chapter / certain number of pages?  Huh?  Stop reading before a book is finished without some real life interruption by outside influences?

 

4. Do you eat or drink while read?  Yes, except sometimes in the really engrossing parts I freeze and do nothing but read.

 

5. Multitasking: music or TV while reading?  Multi-task.  Music or tv; sometimes computer work ongoing and reading while waiting for some long process to finish.

 

6. One book at a time or several at once?  Several.  Plus there's always something new that seems interesting, library waitlist priorities, lovely friends loaning something, etc.  Sometimes current book stalls and I put aside to try again later or something gets too intense where I need a break.

 

7. Reading at home or everywhere?  Everywhere.  Particularly airports and planes during business travels.

 

8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?  Silently (unless to kids).

 

9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?  Never (unless checking to see if a familiar seeming book is one I already read).

 

10. Barking the spine or keeping it like new?  Mostly ebooks but on print books I try to keep like new.

 

11. Do you write in your books?  Nope, not even text/reference books.  I will use post-its and post-it flags to mark things.  If a tech/reference manual in a three ring binder printed only on one side of the page, I might use the blank backside for notes (more likely to open the rings and add notebook paper).  It's one reason I like ebooks -- the ability to highlight (particularly the B&N Nook Study features) and note without damaging.
