Hope your day is going well so far. I thought I’d do another tag post, this time about reading habits. Once again I first saw this on Portobellobookblog – Joanne takes part in good tags!
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
No, not really, although on the settee in the living room, I suppose. I mainly read when I’m not at home, either on the bus or at lunchtime. Occasionally I snatch time in the evening, but not often.
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Bookmark. Random bits of paper would upset me.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop at the end of a chapter/a certain amount of pages?
I try to stop at the end of a chapter but sometimes I have to stop wherever because it’s time to do something else (like get off the bus).
Do you eat or drink when reading?
Yes, if I’m at home or work. Not on the bus!
Multitasking: music or TV whilst reading?
No. I don’t mind it being on in the background, but it’s someone else’s doing, not mine.
One book at a time or several at once?
One at a time. Occasionally two, but one of them would then be non-fiction.
Read at home or everywhere?
More often outside than at home. I can’t read while walking down the street like some people manage to do, though.
Read aloud or silently in your head?
Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
Hmmm. I’d love to smugly say no, but occasionally I do have a quick look ahead. I always feel guilty, though.
Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
It doesn’t upset me if I have to break the spine of a book, but I don’t do it as a matter of course.
Do you write in books?
How dare you. 😉
If you join in the tag, please let me know so I can check out your reading habits!
