Reading Habits Tag!
1. DO YOU HAVE A CERTAIN PLACE AT HOME FOR READING?
I read before bed almost every night, so usually that happens in my bed (of course). Any other time, I read on my couch in my living room. So, no I don't have a certain place, but one day I hope to have a comfy reading nook.
2. BOOKMARK OR RANDOM PIECE OF PAPER?
I pretty much use Book Depository and Craft'ed bookmarks exclusively now, but before I was obsessed with those, I used to use a 2 dollar bill that I received as a tip when I worked as a waitress. I also have used the receipts that come in the book when I bought them. So even then I didn't use random pieces of paper, just things that aren't officially bookmarks.
3. CAN YOU JUST STOP READING OR DO YOU HAVE TO STOP AFTER A CHAPTER/ A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF PAGES?
I usually stop after a chapter, UNLESS the chapter is abnormally long or I'm literally falling asleep. Let's be honest, this happens fairly often since I read right before bed.
4. DO YOU EAT OR DRINK WHILE READING?
I almost always have water, tea, or coffee when I'm reading. As you can see in the collage, I frequently accompany my daytime reading with Starbucks. If I have a snack (which is rare), it has to be something that won't stick to my fingers and get on the pages of my book.
5. MULTITASKING: MUSIC OR TV WHILE READING?
NO! I can't read unless it is silent. But, if I'm listening to an audiobook, I can do other tasks while listening such as driving, cleaning, or working out.
6. ONE BOOK AT A TIME OR SEVERAL AT ONCE?
I used to have a really bad habit of starting a lot of books without finishing them... as in, I would have 5-6 books in my currently reading on Goodreads. I had to ban myself from doing that because I was so bad at finishing books. Now I only will have 1 physical book and 1 audiobook in progress as the same time. After about a year of doing this, I don't think I could ever go back to how I was! It's too stressful!
7. READING AT HOME OR EVERYWHERE?
At home for physical books and everywhere else for audioboks.
8. READING OUT LOUD OR SILENTLY IN YOUR HEAD?
In my head, because 1. It's way faster and 2. I don't want to look like a crazy person.
9. DO YOU READ AHEAD OR EVEN SKIP PAGES?
Nope :) I don't like accidentally seeing spoilers.
10. BREAKING THE SPINE OR KEEPING IT LIKE NEW?
I don't mind a broken spine, but I do like to keep my books looking nice, especially if I spent decent money to get an edition that I love.
11. DO YOU WRITE IN YOUR BOOKS?
No, I used to, but now I can't be bothered. I just want to enjoy my book and annotating feels too much like homework.
