Reading Habits Tag

I wasn’t tagged to do this, but I saw it on Emilie’s blog: Create Explore Read back in January and thought it looked like fun!


1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
—-  Wherever I can find a quiet, comfortable place. 😉  Usually on my bed or in a comfy chair in the living room… or outside.

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?
—-  Yes.  Whatever works and is handy at the moment.

3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?
—-  Unless I am so totally exhausted I can’t keep my eyes open any longer or I suddenly have to leave… I don’t stop until I reach the end of a chapter or at least the end of a section.

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?
—-  Sometimes.

5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
—-  I usually find music to be a distraction– either I want to sing with the music or it makes me sleepy.  I have watched movies while I was reading, but only when both the book and movie were already familiar to me.  However, I multitask all the time when listening to audiobooks!  I’m listening to “Betrayal” by Robin Lee Hatcher as I write this post and I listen to audiobooks all the time at work.

6. One book at a time or several at once?
—-  It’s not often that I only have one book in progress.  I usually have at least 2 or 3 going at a time.

7. Reading at home or everywhere?
—-  Well, not everywhere… but certainly not just at home! 😉

8. Reading out lout or silently in your head?
—-  Both.  Though I usually read silently, I do sometimes like to read out loud.

9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
—-  Um… maybe..?  Not often, but sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures.  If I do skip ahead, I almost always go back and read what I skipped– unless the book is just too boring or awful to read in it’s entirety.

10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
—-  I prefer to keep my books looking as new and beautiful as possible!

11. Do you write in your books?
—-  Sometimes, yes.  My paperback copies of Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre are particularly marked up because I wanted to mark some favorite sections and make some notes.  Usually, though, I mark passages with sticky notes to avoid writing in a book.



Anyone who thinks this looks fun, count yourself tagged! 😉
