I’m going to attempt to do a blog post every Thursday. Which is probably going to be some kind of tag. It may be book related, it may not be book related. The world may never know. Heck, I don’t even know. I will always link where I found the tag. It most likely will not be the original post.
I found this tag from CornerFolds.
DO YOU HAVE A CERTAIN PLACE AT HOME FOR READING?
I’m either reading in bed or on the couch. Those are my only two designated reading spots. I prefer the bed though. It’s nice and cozy and that’s the only place Julian will relax. He hates sitting around on the couch so we always spend time together in bed.
BOOKMARK OR RANDOM PIECE OF PAPER?
Bookmark for sure! I’ve been using the same bookmark for over two years and I refuse to use any other one. Unless, I’m reading more than one book at once. It’s my favorite 🙂
CAN YOU STOP READING ANYTIME YOU WANT OR DO YOU HAVE TO STOP READING AT A CERTAIN PAGE, CHAPTER, PART, ETC.?
I really have to stop at a new chapter or where there’s a gap in the chapter. I can’t stop mid sentence because I will have to reread it all. I will never understand how people can just put their book down.
DO YOU EAT OR DRINK WHILE READING?
I drink a lot of soda. So, most of the time, I will be drinking a Dr. Pepper while reading. Now, I don’t read while eating dinner or any other big meal. I will probably eat some salt and vinegar chips while reading. Only if I can hold the book with one hand though. Don’t want greasy fingers all over my books.
CAN YOU READ WHILE LISTENING TO MUSIC/WATCHING TV?
I’m normally watching TV while reading. I’ll either watch South Park or Bojack Horseman. It has to be something that doesn’t have an important story line or I can’t read. It’s rare that I’ll listen to music while reading. If I do, it has to be something I don’t know the lyrics to. I’ll just sing along and completely lose track of what I’m reading.
ONE BOOK AT A TIME OR SEVERAL AT ONCE?
The majority of the time, I’m only reading one book at a time. There will be a time that I decide to read two books at once. They can’t be the same genre though. I’ll mix up the story lines in my head and there’s no need to get confused. I also prefer to read just one book at a time.
READING AT HOME OR EVERYWHERE?
I have a big purse for a reason. It’s big enough for like three good sized books. I will anywhere I get a chance to. Waiting in line? Read. Pumping gas? Read. Waiting at the doctor’s? READ!
READING OUT LOUD OR SILENTLY IN YOUR HEAD?
Because I am a mommy, I’m going to say both. Reading silently to myself and reading out loud to my son. I love both so much. Marcel absolutely loves it when we read to him and he has since he was born.
DO YOU READ AHEAD OR SKIP PAGES?
Never! Why would anyone ever do this? You might miss something!
BREAKING THE SPINE OR KEEPING IT NEW?
I keep all of my books in pristine condition. I treat them like little babies. They’re my little babies. I have to take care of them and not ruin them.
What are some of your reading habits?
Let me know in the comments!
