By now, I would think you’d have figured out that I love to read; so when I came across Ashley’s “The Reading Tag” post on her blog, hellonatureblog.com, earlier today I immediately decided that I needed to do this tag on my blog!
Please feel free to do this tag on your blog as well, and if you do, please leave me a link to your post in the comments!
1. Do you have a certain place for reading at home?
I usually read while lounging on my bed, although I do occassionally read on the couch, at the kitchen table, or if it’s a nice day I might do some reading outside!
2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Usually I’m using the little receipt from the library as a bookmark, which is handy to keep around as it reminds me of when the book(s) are due back to the library!
3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter or certain number of pages?
I prefer to stop reading at the end of a chapter, or at least at the end of a page. There are times when a book is just too good to put down and you sneak in some reading whenever possible, and then in that case you stop reading whenever you happen to get interrupted!
4. Do you eat or drink when reading?
Sometimes, but not usually. It all just depends on how good the book is that I’m currently reading!
5. One book at a time or several at once?
I’m definitely a one book at a time type of reader, I’d get too confused by trying to keep up with multiple books at the same time!
6. Reading at home or everywhere?
Usually at home, but if it’s a good book… everywhere
7. Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Silently in my head, for sure.
8. Do you ever read ahead or skip pages?
I never skip pages, and I avoid reading ahead if at all possible. If the book is that uninteresting, I’d much rather just stop reading it altogether and go find another book to read.
9. Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
Everything I have been reading lately comes from the library, but I try to keep books in like new condition for as long as possible.
10. Do you write in your books?
No, never. (See answer to #9)
11. What are you currently reading?
I’m currently reading “Stir-fry” by Emma Donoghue and I’m finding it a bit difficult to get through.. and I’m only on page 23, sooooo… yeah. =/ I just need to make more time to read it! I did enjoy reading “Room” by the same author, which was the reason that I picked up this current book from the library.
By the way, would you like to become friends with me on Goodreads.com ???????
