Woohoo !!! My first book tag thanks to Ajoobacats. She has an amazing blog so please do drop by and have a read.
Do you have certain places at home for reading?
Yes. Being a creature of habit, I have 2 places I like to read, either on the sofa or on my bed and I prefer to lie down when possible. I find it more relaxing 🙂
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Always a bookmark. I have a collection of bookmark’s (nothing fancy) and I change them around between books.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?
Preferably, I like to finish a chapter but with a five year old son …. interruptions are inevitable !!!
Do you eat or drink while reading?
Generally no. The fact that I do most of my reading horizontally is not very conducive to either. Lol 🙂
Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
I don’t like distractions when doing anything. I try to be mindful and give my attention to one thing at a time.
One book at a time or several at once?
One book at a time but on the odd occasion when I find a book too disturbing to bring to bed, I will start a 2nd book solely for bed time. I can’t go to bed and NOT have a book to read. It would give me insomnia !!!
Reading at home or everywhere?
I much prefer to read at home. I have tried bringing books to coffee shops on several occasions but am too easily distracted or else just plain nosey. I’m not sure which 🙂
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
In my head. I only read out loud for my son’s bed time stories.
Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
I read every single word. No skipping ahead for me. I read for enjoyment. Its not a race.
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
Guilty as charged. It makes for a more comfortable read, in my opinion. Apart from that, I keep my books in pristine condition !!!
Do you write in your books?
I don’t generally write in my fiction books but I will write in non-fiction/ factual books.
I would like to tag the following book lovers to answer the above questions (only if you get the chance) xx
