Everyone has their weird habits, especially while reading! Here are mine…
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
Yes, kind of. Most of the time I read in my room on my bed. Give me a big cozy blanket and I could stay there for hours.
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
I always forget to grab a bookmark before I set down, so I tend to reach for whatever is next to me. Things like receipts, Bobby pins, hair ties, my phone,…they’ve al been used as bookmarks.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/certain amount of pages?
I have to finish a chapter before I put a book down. I’ve tried stoping in the middle, but it just doesn’t work for me. I end up having to reread the first part anyway.
Do you eat or drink while reading?
Sometimes I will have a drink, but I never eat while reading. I’m too scared that something will get on my page and ruin it. That would be a nightmare!
Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
No way! I like it to be super quiet. I lose focus very easily if there are any other distractions around me.
One book at a time or several?
One book. There are times when I listen to an audiobook alongside whatever I am physically reading though.
Reading at home or anywhere?
At home. If I had a Kindle though, I would take that thing everywhere.
Read out loud or silently in your head?
Silently in my head…100%. Honestly, I hate reading out loud. It was my biggest fear all throughout school.
Do you read ahead or skip pages?
NOPE! I could never do this. Not knowing what is going to happen may drive me crazy, but that’s the fun of reading.
Breaking the spine or keeping it like mew?
Like new…for the most part.
Do you write in your books?
I did annotate an ARC once and I actually really enjoyed it. So as of right now, no I don’t, but I would like to start doing this more.
There you go. I hope you learned a little bit about me as a reader. Feel free to answer these questions in the comments!
