I made a visit to a lovely book blogger’s page this evening. I read her random post on her reading habits. Inspired me to keep the post chain going. I love to read, I was (and still am) an avid reader before writer. Here are my habits what are yours?
Do you have a certain place in your home for reading?
Not really, I read anywhere. Including public places. Normally when I’m at home I read in bed or in the living room on the sofa. Curled up with a cup of tea or coffee, sometimes something a stronger. Okay, not sometimes most of the time.
— Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Bookmark all the way! I have collected some pretty ones over the years. It annoys me if they slip out or I lose them.
— Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop reading after a chapter / certain number of pages?
Most of the time I aim to finish the chapter. I find it hard to cut off and disconnect. If I’m really tired I may stop part way through, but I always aim for the long haul and finish a chapter.
— Do you eat or drink while read?
All the time! The crumbs on the E-reader is unbelievable.
— Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
Ahh, hard one I always have something on in the background, the hard decision is music or TV. If I have the TV on it’s always the news channel I place it on, I have no idea why. If it’s music, something easy going is playing.
— One book at a time or several at once?
Just the one thank you! I give it my full attention.
— Reading at home or everywhere?
*Raises an eyebrow* what do you think?
— Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Silently in my head… what am I? Five years old?
— Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
No. Never. It’s a sin.
— Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
Keeping it new…
— Do you write in your books?
Who? What? … Hell No! Why would you? When I was at university I didn’t even like making notes in my text books. But reading books? My escapism?.. You’ve lost ya damn mind.
What are your reading habits?
