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.
