Reading Habits

It’s been some time since I have done a book tag and I found this amazing book tag on Soph’s Book World. This book tag has been fun and I encourage any book lover to participate. Enjoy!

BOOKMARKS OR RANDOM PIECE OF PAPER

If someone asked me this a couple of years ago I would be using bookmarks, however, I have a one-year-old who seems to always find my book and take the bookmark out of my book so sometimes I end up using paper from my journal to just stuff it at the page I stop at. Better for me so the bookmark doesn’t stick out of the book.

STOP READING RANDOMLY OR STOP AFTER A CHAPTER/CERTAIN AMOUNT OF PAGES

I stop reading randomly, I get away with this and remember everything that I read by taking notes in my book journal. I only do chapters when I do buddy reads.

CERTAIN PLACE AT HOME FOR READING?

Right now I’m staying in a hotel waiting to move into my new house in Michigan so currently, my reading spot is on the bed. My new house has a porch where I know I will be spending time reading and I have a hallway that I’m going to be making my mini library where I will be reading too.

EAT OR DRINK WHILE READING?

I never eat while I read, I don’t want my dirty hands getting my books all gross from the foods I eat, but you know I will be getting down on some tea, smoothies, and ice coffee!

MUSIC OR TV WHILE READING?

Before I had a baby I read in absolute quietness now that my baby is one-year-old I always have Mickey Mouse Club House on or playing Disney top Hits for my daughter and I learned to read my books while there is noise in the background, trust me it was hard at first but you have to do what you have to do.

ONE BOOK AT A TIME OR SEVERAL?

Several. I am always reading my physical book and I also have my Kindle for the books on Netgalley.

READING AT HOME OR EVERYWHERE?

I love reading at home but I do read everywhere I go. I always have my book, my Kindle, and my journal in my bookbag when I leave the house, you never know when you will have to be stopped somewhere and be waiting on something or someone.

READING OUT LOUD OR SILENTLY?

The only time you ever hear me reading out loud is when I’m reading to my daughter when it comes to my books I read to myself in my head not out loud.

DO YOU EVER READ AHEAD OR SKIP PAGES?

I always go to the very end of the book to see how many pages and read the last sentence of the book and then start from the very beginning of the book. I never skip pages.

BREAKING THE SPINE OR KEEPING IT LIKE NEW?

 I like breaking in the spine, just like when you buy new pairs of shoes and break them in, the same satisfaction for me.

DO YOU WRITE IN YOUR BOOKS?

No never! I use my color tabs to mark my books.

Thanks for reading!
