I’m curious to see if people care about my reading habits or not, but either way, I’m posting this because I was tagged by another blogger. I’m a techno newb, so I may not be doing this right/tagging people correctly, but thanks to Book Bunny I’m going to attempt it, so here goes!
Do you have certain places at home for reading?
Yes, although I’m willing to pick up a book and start reading just about anywhere. My favorite reading location is my couch, in our front living room, with Smokey, Pearl, or both sitting on my lap.
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Bookmark! I have about a million of them, but my favourite one is from the resort my husband and I got married at in St. Lucia, called Jade Mountain.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?
As a new mother, I am frequently forced to stop reading ( usually accompanied by a baby’s wail, signalling the end of nap time), but when I’m reading at night before bed, I typically try to make it to the end of my chapter or section.
Do you eat or drink while reading?
Oh hell yah! A nice cup of tea is a great accompaniment to any kind of book, but if I’m feeling naughty, a Cadbury Dairy Milk Bar is my go-to choice.
Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
The only thing I can do at the same time as reading is breastfeed my baby, or pet my cats if they are close at hand. That’s about it.
One book at a time or several at once?
Usually I like to stick to one book, but these days I find myself reading one kind of book to blog about, plus some parenting book that gives me some sort of clue as to what I should be doing with my kid.
Reading at home or everywhere?
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
I read my own books silently, but I read out loud to my baby.
Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I’m not sure if I actually break the spines, but I force them open as much as needed to read comfortably. I also try to keep the dust jackets of the hard cover books intact, so I can pass them on to others when I’m done.
Do you write in your books?
Why the hell would I do that?
I’d like to tag the wonderful blog I Will Never Own Enough Books to answer these same questions, when she gets around to them! And no rush, I know you’ve got lots of reading to do 🙂
Great answers. I love reading other people’s book habits 😉
Thanks for the nomination! I was able to make my post today!
