I was recently tagged by Leah @ Leah’s Book Reviews and Recipes to do the Reading Habits Book Tag*. For some reason I’ve been distractable AF all of today so I thought I would do a short, fun and easy book tag and this one seemed to fit the bill! Thanks for the tag, Leah 😘
*This tag was originally created by TheBookJazz.
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
I just read on my bed now. But when I used to live in my flat, I’d read on my couch on days when I wanted to feel slightly less lazy by moving one room over and plopping down on the couch 😂
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
If I remember to find a bookmark before I start reading then I’ll use a bookmark. If not, then a random piece of literally anything will do!
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop reading after a chapter or a certain amount of pages?
I try to stop reading after a chapter or paragraph ends. I hate cutting things off mid-way!
Do you eat or drink while reading?
I do sometimes but not always because a lot of the time when I read I’m lying down too 😅
Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
Sometimes I’ll put on some chill lo-fi hip hop tunes or classical music to play in the background!
One book at a time or several?
Defo depends on my mood. If I’m in a funky one then I usually have several going all at once but I mostly try to limit myself to one at a time. Just so it’s easier for me to write a review for the book!
Reading at home or everywhere?
No doubt everywhere! Lol
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
If I need to get myself to focus I’ll start reading out loud and then fall silent once I’m in the zone 😂
Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
Guilty… Totally guilty. But not always! I only do this when I need to know what happens but I don’t have the patience to read one sentence at a time. So I skim pages to get to the part I want and after skimming to see how things go, I’ll go back to where I originally was and read it all properly!
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I don’t know HOW people don’t break spines? No matter how hard I try it’s impossible for me to not do. But y’know, there’s a certain level of satisfaction in opening a book with a broken spine 😂
Do you write in your books?
I spend so much money on my books, so that’s a solid no. I like to keep them in good condition, thanks!
When do you find yourself reading?
Literally whenever I can? Mostly in the evenings after work and blogging, and before catching Zzzs.
What is your best setting to read in?
Do I have a best setting? I think somewhere peaceful (not necessarily quiet) where I can burrow under a blanket with some fluffy pillows propped up behind me so I can get all cozy and zoned in to whatever I’m currently reading. Did I answer this question “correctly”? 😅
What do you do first: read or watch?
Usually read. But it always takes me forever to get to the read so that means I usually don’t end up reading (or watching) until… much much later if ever. The only exception was probably Game of Thrones (I only read up to book 4 but I also haven’t finished the season and have seen zero spoilers)!
What form do you prefer: audiobook, e-book or physical book?
It’s either physical or e-book. I like the convenience of e-books and I read them much faster than physical books BUT nothing beats the feel and smell of a physical book! Also depends on my mood!
Do you have a unique habit when you read?
I think I’m a pretty conventional/boring/average reader? Unless I have a unique habit that I don’t notice doing while reading but then the answer would still be no 😂
Do book series have to match?
YES if possible because I like to keep them together on my shelves and when they mismatch I have to separate them and it actually really irritates me lol
That’s a wrap friends! This was totally the fun/easy tag that I was looking to do today 🙂 I’m not going to tag anyone in particular but if you want to do it then YOU’RE TAGGED!
