Reading Habits Tag

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

 

I do have a chair in the living room with a light behind it that is my default reading location, though I might read anywhere.

 

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

 

Both. I have some lovely bookmarks, but they never seem to be around when I need them!

 

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

 

I prefer to stop at a chapter break. I can pick up mid-chapter if I go back a paragraph.

 

4. Do you eat or drink while read?

 

Not generally, with some exceptions. I won't notice what I'm eating if I'm reading.

 

5. Multitasking: music or TV while reading?

 

I tune it all out.

 

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

 

LOTS! Different genres though.

 

7. Reading at home or everywhere?

 

Mostly at home, but if I have to wait somewhere, I want reading material.

 

8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?

 

Silently of course.

 

9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

 

No. It takes discipline sometimes, but I let the story unfold as it's meant to. It's only when I give up on a book that I might glance at the end before throwing it against a wall.

 

10. Barking the spine or keeping it like new?

 

As like new as possible.

 

11. Do you write in your books?

 

Blasphemy! Burn the blasphemer who would soil the pages of a book!
