Reading Habits Tag!

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

I read in my in bed. I turn on the tv for background noise and snuggle in with Abigail who gets belly rubs and paw rubs the whole time.

#2 Bookmark or a random piece of paper? 

Bookmark! I have tons of them all over the house from swag packs and one nice fabric one that I love to use. I’ve never used random bits of paper because they slide out and get lost.

#3 Can you stop reading anytime you want or do you have to stop at a certain page, chapter, part, etc.? 

If I have to stop and can’t finish in one sitting I try to stop half way through the book. I can’t stop during exciting parts and will keep reading until I’m past the parts that I can’t wait to finish.

#4 Do you eat or drink while reading? 

I never eat while reading. I will sometimes drink while reading, but I put my book aside to be safe. I don’t want anything on my books or phone if I’m reading on my phone.

#5 Can you read while listening to music/watching TV?

Yes! I can’t have silence when reading because every little noise catches my attention then. Can’t have people in the room though.

#6 One book at a time, or several at once?

One at a time. They would get mixed up in my head when writing reviews. I may start one and take a break from it to read another like I did with book five of the Outlander series (haven’t finished yet), but can’t go back and forth.

#7 Reading at home or everywhere? 

I can read everywhere if there are no distractions. My reading apps are on my phone and with me everywhere.

#8 Reading out loud or silently in your head?

Silently in my head. I just react out loud to what I read at times.

#9 Do you read ahead or skip pages?

Never! I don’t want to miss anything.

#10  Breaking the spine or keeping it new? 

I try to keep it pretty, but the spine always gets broken. I have small hands and hold the book can be hard at times.

#11 Do you write in books? 

Never! I’m pretty good at remembering stuff. If it’s an ebook I just highlight it.

Readabits Tag!

#1 When do you find yourself reading? Morning, Afternoon, Evening, whenever you can, or all the time. 

Evening! 99% of the time I read at night. I rarely read during the day because I have stuff to do.

#2 What is your best setting to read in?

In a nice cool bed with a snoring dog by me.

#3 What do you do first watch or read? 

So far I’ve watched first because I didn’t know about the book until after seeing the movie or show.

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

It’s a toss up between ebooks and physical books. I love the smell and feel of physical books, but ebooks take up less space. I never have time for audiobooks because family is usually around and I don’t want to put headphones on.

#5 Do you have a unique reading habit? 

I don’t think so. Maybe that I can read with the mindset of the time period the book is set sometimes to understand things.

#6 Do book series have to match? 

Nope. It doesn’t really matter to me.
