Thank you to the amazing Summer for tagging me. ❤
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
In my bed surrounded by my fluffy pillows or sometimes the balcony of my apartment.
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Before it use to be a piece of paper or a post-it. However, I realized that my books are special and definitely deserve a bookmark and not just a piece of paper that I tore off of my notebook. HAHA Here are just some of the bookmarks that I use.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?
My rule is to stop after a chapter, but at times the chapters can get too long that I do stop at a random page. If that happens I just make sure that it’s in a new paragraph…
Do you eat or drink while reading?
I only drink water, but because I am so immersed in my reading, eating or drinking doesn’t even cross my mind anymore. But there are rare occasions when I do eat and drink; however, I’m so engrossed that I end up multitasking….reading a page while stuffing food in my mouth. HAHA
Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
I am actually good at multi tasking. The only time I can’t concentrate is when people are talking. People always find it weird that I am able to listen to music or have the TV on while I’m reading. It’s whatever to me, unless it’s super loud and really causing a disturbance.
One book at a time or several at once?
Several at once. I know people who claim that they get confused while reading multiple books, but I don’t think that really happens to me. But I do like variety–so I tend to choose books in different genres. Often, I would even read one physical book while the other an e-book.
Reading at home or everywhere?
Nowadays I just tend to read at home. Nevertheless, I tend to find myself reading elsewhere when I need to occupy myself something– i.e on a train ride to the city, waiting while on jury duty (to my dismay), or just waiting in general.
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Okay I will admit I have read a passage or two in certain books and recorded myself. HAHA I wanted to hear how I sounded like so that’s why I read at loud. However, definitely silently in my head. I just find it weird reading out loud.
Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
I skim…when the pace of the story is really slow because I’m just that bored. I’ve read the endings for some books before, and honestly never regretted it.
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
My books are my babies so definitely keeping it like new; however, it’s difficult when it comes to paperback editions. I try to be really careful when I’m reading a paperback edition because they aren’t as sturdy as hardbacks.
Do you write in your books?
Like the actual pages inside the books? Then no. I do write on my book, but just to put my name on it and it’s inside the back cover of the book.
