Reading Habits Tag

It's been a while since I've done a tag. This one seems fun so here we go.

This tag was created by The Book Jazz on youtube, unfortunately the original video is not available anymore. I found the questions on DreamLand Book Blog.

All I have to do is answer questions. I'm good at that. Let's roll.

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

I do! I've actually written a post a few months ago about my reading nooks, in which you can find pictures too. If you'd like to see where I read the most, click here.

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

Sometimes this, sometimes that. If I start a book while I'm home, it's definitely a bookmark. If not, I can end up with a piece of paper or a clean tissue as a marker.

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

I can stop anywhere anytime. I have an awfully short attention span so I very often stop reading at odd places, haha.

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?

I love drinking coffee while reading. Sometimes I read during breakfast too.

5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

The telly is often on when I read but obviously the book is priority when it's reading time.

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

One or two at a time, rarely more. I like to focus on one or two stories, I don't like hopping much.

7. Reading at home or everywhere?

At home. I don't like reading around people because they often break my concentration; they ask questions either about the book I'm tying to get lost in or totally unrelated ones. I rather enjoy a book when there's peace and quiet around me.

8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?

I do read out loud when I'm completely alone. It feels good to give a voice to the story. However, if anyone is around I read silently, obviously (except when we read together with my lil' brother).

9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

I never skip pages. If I feel a terrible need to do so, I simply don't read on, I abandon the book. If there are whole pages/parts that are not worth my time, most likely the whole book is not worth it.

10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

If you really love a book, there is no way you can keep it in a 'like new' condition. Books that show signs of love like broken spine, dog-eared pages etc. are the best because you know they are/were valued. Books exist to be read over and over again, a physical book's destiny is to look worn out eventually.

11. Do you write in your books?

I don't like writing in my own books but I like reading annotations that are written by others.

Please consider yourself tagged if you're reading this and write a similar post if you feel like to. Don't forget to leave me a link if you do!
