The Reading Habits Tag

Sunday, September 21, 2014

I saw this tag recently, and I thought I'd give it a go. I usually go through stages of reading, where I won't read for a while, and then I'll just binge read. Being holidays now, I went through the latter stage and have been reading loads of books. I thought it would be interesting to do this tag as it's something a bit different to what I usually see. So, here's the Reading Habits Tag! (Sorry for the text heavy post!)

1. Do you have a certain place for reading at home?
I love to relax in bed when I read.
2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?
I normally just use whatever random paper I can find. But I recently placed a book order and a free book came with the novels so I've started to use an actual bookmark.
3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter or a certain number of pages?
Being quite OCD, I have to stop after a chapter.
4. Do you eat or drink when reading?
My most hated thing about borrowing library books is finding food throughout the pages. I never eat when I'm reading.
5. Do you watch TV or listen to music whilst reading?
I'm fine with the television being on in the background if someone else is watching, but I can't read and watch at the same time. So generally, no.
6. One book at a time or several at once?
I like to concentrate my full attention on one book at a time. I think I'd find myself getting easily confused between different books.
7. Reading at home or everywhere?
I really only ever read at home. I tend to be quite easily distracted by the outside world, and find myself reading the same sentence over and over when I'm not at home.
8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Definitely silently in my head!
9. Do you ever read ahead or skip pages?
If the book I'm reading is quite slow or I'm a little bored with it, I may flick ahead and have a bit of a read.
10. Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
I normally end up unintentionally breaking the spine. As much as I would love to keep the spines nice, it just never happens.
11. Do you write in your books?
There's no way I would ever write in my books.
12. What are you currently reading?
