I have never done a tag before and they looked fun, so I found the Reading Habits tag. Hopefully, with this tag, you guys can get to know me a little bit better. I know that every reader is different and has different reading habits so here are mine….enjoy!
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
I have three places at my house that I always end up reading and they include my bed if it is at night, the living room couch if nobody is home (otherwise it can get loud), and the front porch if people are home and it’s not freezing.
Bookmark or Random Piece of Paper?
I would totally use a bookmark if I had some and they were easy to grab when I needed them. However, in reality, I use anything from scraps of papers to old rubber bands to mark my books. I just use whatever I can find and don’t give it much thought!
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?
I sometimes like to try to finish the chapter I’m on before I stop, but its not a big deal if I don’t. The exception to this is if I am in a really really good part. Then I don’t want to stop for anything!
Do you eat or drink while reading?
I really like having tea by me to drink while I read, but I can’t eat and read at the same time. That is too much multitasking for me to handle!
Multitasking: Music or TV while reading
Anything with words being said will distract me and I won’t be able to read. I do occasionally like to listen to music without words while reading though. I actually have a post called Beautiful, Wordless Music for Reading and Studying that has some of my favorites for when I want to read with some background noise.
One Book at a Time or Several at Once?
A lot of the time I’m only reading one at a time, but on occasion I will pick up two.
Reading at home or everywhere?
I can read anywhere! I don’t know how else I would be able to get a lot of reading time in.
Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
I can honestly say that I don’t do this!
Breaking a spine or keeping it like new?
If the spine is broken so much that its hard to read, then no. But if it is only broken a little, then I think it has just been well loved!
Do you write in your books?
Not in library books or e-books of course, but sometimes I make notes in the books I own. I don’t mind people writing in books. I think its fun to get used books and see that somebody else has written a little note about a line that they liked/disliked. Its kind of like a secret message system.
I had way too much fun making this tag! If you think you would have fun doing it too, then consider yourself tagged. I’d love to see what other people’s responses are to these questions, so let me know if you decide to do it!
