Reading Habits Tag that Tina over at Novel Meals had done way back in 2015. I do love a good tag and this one seems like a lot of fun so I decided it was time to give it a try!
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
Not really. I do most of my reading in bed though I do love a long bath with a good book. In theory I'd love to have a comfy reading chair but I tend to do most of my reading late at night.
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
I have two bookmarks that I always use - 1 Emma made when she was in kindergarten (she'll be 21 this month) and the other the Tornado made last year. As well, I have a handful of freebies from authors and a set of magnetic bookmarks.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?
I prefer to stop at the end of a chapter and to get at least 100 pages in but that doesn't always happen.
Do you eat or drink while reading?
I try not to eat because I tend to not pay attention to what I'm eating while reading and before I know it the entire plate of cookies or bag of chips is gone. I normally have either my favorite water cup or my favorite mug filled with some kind of herbal tea nearby.
Reading at home or everywhere?
Mostly at home though I do read most days in carline while I'm waiting to pick up the Tornado. I try to read in waiting rooms and anywhere possible but I have mixed results.
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Unless I'm reading a bedtime story to the Tornado I read silently.
Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
Usually not though if I'm reading a thriller and there's an animal or small child that seems vulnerable I have been known to peek at the end to make sure they survive.
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
In between. I'm not vigilant about keeping my books like new but I also try to take care of my books.
Do you write in your books?
No never. I wrote in a cookbook one time and it made me feel like I'd done something horribly wrong so if I need to make a note in a book I use a post-it note but that's usually only for cookbooks.
What are your reading habits?
