The Reading Habits Tag

150821_0002

Guys!!! I’m doing my second tag!

I was tagged by the lovely Jenna @ Reading With Jenna. Go check out her blog if you haven’t already!

Let’s get started!

Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

Yes, so i have a desk and a chair in my room, and i usually read in the chair, with my feet propped against my bed, which is right behind the chair, so i just swivel it around. I don’t know, it has become a comfortable position for me to read in. 🙂

Bookmark or random piece of paper?

I like using bookmarks, but when one is not handy, i use anything from library slips, to pieces of paper, and sometimes, toiler paper, i know!

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

Nope, i’m good to stop reading whenever 😉

Do you eat or drink while reading?

Ok, i know how hypocritical this sounds, but i can’t eat or drink with my own books, but with library books i can, oops.

Multitasking: music or TV while reading?

No, no, no! Sometimes, if the music is on really faintly i can read, but not usually. Oh wait, when i’m in the car, and my mom is playing music, i just tune the music out and read, because i’m really just great at tuning things out, (ex: my mom)

One book at a time or several at once?

I mean, i try to read one book at a time, but it’s not like i physically can’t. I think that when a get bored of a book, i read another one, and then come back to it later, but that usually doesn’t happen.

Reading at home or everywhere?

I can read absolutely anywhere. I don’t get carsick, so i can read on the bus or in the car, and i’m good at tuning loud noises out, so i can read at school, like in the cafeteria.

Reading out loud or silently in your head?

In my head definitely. I read in my head faster than aloud, so it slows me down, reading out loud.

Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

Not usually. I mean, once or twice when i was younger, i’d flip to the middle of the book, read a sentence, and then find weird delight when i finally catch up to it and remember that that was the sentence i read. Sometimes if an action scene is going on, i skip to the bottom of the page to see the outcome, then go back and read it.

Breaking the spine or keeping it new?

I mean, i try to keep it new, but just look at my Harry Potter spines. They’re so used that the spines are destroyed. But i feel that that shows that my Harry Potter Books are read very well. I think my Harry Potter Books and the Hunger Games are the only books where the spines are broken, on my shelf that is.

150821_0001 Do you write in your books?

No, *shudders*. Even at school, when they ask us to annotate, i take out a piece of paper and annotate on loose leaf. I don’t care that the book cost me 5 dollars, it’s wrong.


I tag:

Short Story Long

Alex the Shadow Girl

Charley @ Books and Bakes

Tori @ Just a Dreamer

Eva @ Devouring Fictions


That’s it for the tag, let me know in the comments which books you own that have broken spines!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Aww there’s some brilliant answers here. I can’t write in my books either. It just feels wrong, so I absolutely agree with you. Can’t wait to complete this tag. Thanks so much for the nomination 🙂 it’s really kind of you!
