Reading Habits Book Tag!

Yay! Another book tag! These are so fun! The Reading Habits Book Tag was created by the BookTuber TheBookJazz. Follow the link to her channel!

1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

When I read during the day I usually read on the couch and when I read before I go to bed I read in my bed. I would eventually like to have a reading room with a nice comfortable arms chair with a side table that can hold a lamp and coffee or tea and read surrounded by my books. Oh, the dream!

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

I usually use a bookmark.  I have a large shoe box full of bookmarks to choose from but I use the same bookmark until I lose it and then find another bookmark to use.  If you ever to go ALA or BEA, they are great places to get a bunch of bookmarks to use for years.

3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?

I always prefer to stop at the end of a chapter.  But if I'm falling asleep and I absolutely can't keep my eyes open then I'll try to stop at a natural breaking point but I'll never stop in the middle of the paragraph.

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?

Since I'm not very good at multitasking I usually don't eat while I read.  But I do like to drink hot coffee or tea.

5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

Haha. Multitasking.  I definitely cannot watch watch TV while I read.  The only music I can listen to while I read is instrumental like Explosions in the Sky.  They're pretty good and I don't have to concentrate on the music which makes it really easy to listen to while I read.

6. One book at a time or several at once?

I usually have several going on at once.  I'll be reading at least one physical copy of a book and then another one on my Nook/iPhone so that I can read at work.  Then I also have a few really really long books (A Storm of Swords, Outlander) that I have off to the side that I'll pick up every now and then and read a few chapters.

7. Reading at home or everywhere?

Oh I'll read anywhere.  I always take a book with me wherever I go.  I won't buy a purse unless it's big enough to fit at least one hardcover.

8. Reading out lout or silently in your head?

I don't think I've ever read out loud.  That would definitely feel really weird.  The only time I've ever done it was when I was trying to nail down Hagrid's accent and I couldn't get it right in my head.

9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

I never read ahead or skip pages.  I don't want to spoil myself so I just don't do it.

10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

I prefer to keep my books looking like new. Really long mass market paperbacks are really hard to read without breaking the spine so I don't worry it.

11. Do you write in your books?

I've only ever written in my textbooks.
