The Reading Habit Tag

I recently saw The Reading Habits Tag that Wish Fulfillment posted on her youtube channel and I thought that it would be a fun tag to do. The original video is no longer online.

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

No, I don’t have a set reading place I just tend to read either curled up on the couch or in bed. If its nice outside then I will read out there.

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

I have to admit I try to use bookmarks because I have a ton of them but half the time its random pieces of paper hanging out of the book.

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

No I can’t just stop reading I have to stop at the end of a chapter.

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?

I sometimes will either eat or drink while I am reading.

5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

No, I need to have a quiet surrounding as I tend to get distracted while I am reading.

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

Lately I have noticed I have been reading two books at once. One is a physical book and the other is an ebook. I don’t use my iPad at night to read as I find its a strain on my eyes.

7. Reading at home or everywhere?

I usually like to read at home but basically can read anywhere.

8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?

Silently in my head.

9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

No I never read ahead or skip pages.

10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

Keeping it like new always. I cry a little when I am reading a mass market paperback because those are hard to keep looking new.

11. Do you write in your books?

No I have never written in my books but seeing people annotate them makes me want to try but then again I rarely keep my books so not sure I would do that.

12. Who do you tag?

Anyone who wants to do this.

I am also going to do the Readabits tag as well and for some reason that original video was deleted as well. If anyone has the links for the original creators of these two tags I will gladly update this post to reflect it.

Readabits

1. When do you find yourself reading? Morning, afternoon, evening, whenever you get the chance or all the time?

*  I normally do most of my reading before bed but I have been known to pick up a book and read any time during the day.

2. What is your best setting to read in?

* For me the best setting to read in would be by the lake or beach but ideally its a nice quiet house.

3. What do you do first – Read or Watch?

*I usually prefer to read first but have been know to watch first.

4. What form do you prefer? Audiobook, E-book or physical book?

* I actually prefer physical books but will do ebooks.

5. Do you have a unique habit when you read?

*Hmm I don’t think I have any unique habits when I read. I will have to pay attention the next time I am reading.

6. Do book series have to match?

*For the series of books that I do tend to keep I have to say yes they must match and hate when they change it up.

Comments

  1. I love bookmarks and have a bunch of them too. I never intentionally break the spine but it does happen sometimes. I almost always have a couple books going – one in print and one on audio – and have a third one going from time to time as well.

  2. Loved reading your answers, Cindy! I miss you! Also stealing this!
