Reading Habits Book Tag

Good morning!

And wow! I made a Friday post!

I’m going to make this short. I found this cool tag on The Basic Critic’s blog and thought it looked really cool, so here I am.

Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

I really like reading in bed but it gets hard during the school year because I’m always so tired. Much of the time I try to sit upright on the couch to read and that’s become more comfortable since trying to make it more of a habit.

Bookmark or random piece of paper?

Bookmark most of the time, but sometimes I’ll lose my book mark and be forced to grab whatever’s around me. I do have a habit of laying a book print-side down which breaks the spine. I’ve been working really hard to break that habit.

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

Typically I can stop wherever and pick up just fine where I left off. If I’m struggling to get through a book I’ll basically assign myself so many chapters before I can put the book back down though.

Do you eat or drink whilst reading?

I tend to forgot that I’m eating if I pick up food while reading, so typically no. Unless I have something like a banana, I just don’t have the ability to concentrate on reading and eating.

Multitasking: Music or TV whilst reading?

I can listen to music while reading, but T.V. will completely sidetrack me, so I avoid turning the T.V. on if I’m reading.

One book at a time or several?

This just depends on how I’m feeling. Right now, I’m working on reading one book at a time and doing it just for pleasure. However, when I’m super into it, I will typically find myself reading three or four books at a time.

Reading at home or everywhere?

For the most part I can read wherever.

Read out loud or silently in your head?

Always silently. It’d feel weird to read out loud to myself.

Do you read ahead or skip pages?

When I was younger I’d get antsy and read small bits of dialogue 100 and 200 pages ahead. I’ve since broken that habit. I never skip pages.

Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

I really try not to break the sine, but Jenn and Caitlynn can both attest to my unique ability to kill a book even when I don’t mean to.

Do you write in your books?

The closest I’ve been to writing in books is sticky notes. There are some that I made notes in when I was reading them for college courses though.

What about you? Do you have any weird habits when reading?

  1. Great tag! I used to be a lot better at multi-tasking while reading but these days I have the attention span of a gnat, lol. I do still listen to music sometimes, stuff without lyrics, and that actually helps me concentrate better. 🙂
