My Reading Habits


I have seen a couple of book bloggers doing this tag before and thought it would be great to do it myself. Plus, you get to know a little bit more about me.

1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

Normally I tend to read last thing at night in bed. It’s the cosiest place for me personally (although instead of making me more tired some books can keep me up for hours).

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

When I was younger I had way too many bookmarks, thanks to my mum creating them for me and laminating them. But, up until recently I had just been dog-earring the pages (I can just hear you all telling me off for that). You’ll be glad to know I am using the trusty Book Depository bookmarks that came with my delivery, and I even coloured in one of them, too.

3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?

If I have to stop reading for whatever reason, I have to finish it after a chapter is over. Either that, or I can stop if there is a break in the chapter, but that is only if I am desperate to go do something.

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?

When I think about it, I don’t tend to do either in all honesty. I feel like it distracts me too much from the book, but every so often I will make a coffee and have that (praying I don’t forget about it and drink cold coffee).

5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

I’m one of these people that prefers to read in silence. I love when I’m able to focus on just the book alone and conjure up the story in my mind. My sister is the opposite to me, she has to have something on in the background.

6. One book at a time or several at once?

I have only ever tried reading one book at a time. I think I would get too distracted if I tried to read one too many.

7. Reading at home or everywhere?

Normally I tend to just read at home, but if I am travelling on a train or plane somewhere then you can definitely count on me packing a book in my bag.

8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?

When I was younger I would read out loud if I was with my mum, but it is always in my head now.

9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

I had this thing when I was younger where I would always read the last page. I have no idea why I did that because, yes, sometimes it did ruin the book for me. As for skipping pages, sometimes I am tempted to, but I resist. I could miss some important information that is crucial to the story and that wouldn’t be good.

10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

When it comes to breaking the spine I do this really weird thing where I have to split it into quarters or thirds, depending on how big the book is. I have always done that for as long as I can remember. Although, I do hate it when there are too many breaks in the spine, pet peeve.

11. Do you write in your books?

The only books I have ever written in have been the one that I used when I was at school for English Literature and Language. It definitely helped when it came to exams!

I really hope you enjoyed reading my answers. If you have ever done this tag then leave me the link in the comments, I would love to check it out!
