THE READING HABITS TAG
No one tagged me, but I wanted to do this anyway and tag a few more people and newer bloggers who haven’t had the opportunity to do it yet, like myself. Enjoy! ^.^
1.) Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
Curled up in a chair. Any armchair size chair. I like the small space for some reason. I’ve debated even reading in the closet, but… it’s kind of dark in there. Haha! But really, I like reading in some place that feels small. So high-backed chairs are my best friend(or corners). ^.^
2.) Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Psh! Anything! I used to have billions of bookmarks, but I dunno what happened to them. So now it’s whatever I can find. I haven’t quite mastered the ‘no bookmark, remember the page’ thing yet, but I’ll get there one day. Haha! Right now, I’ve been using a card from the game Magic: The Gathering ‘cuz I’m geek. :p
3.) Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop at the end of a chapter/a certain amount of pages?
I can just stop reading in the middle of a page. Do I like to is the real question. I prefer to end at a chapter, but life doesn’t always allow such perfect pauses. :p
4.) Do you eat or drink while reading?
|Drink? Absolutely! Coffee is my addiction and it goes perfect with a early-morning reading sesh!||Eating? Blasphemy! You might get something on the book! The horror! 0.0|
5.) Multitasking: music or TV whilst reading?
Nothing. Absolutely and completely nothing. TV annoys the bejeezus out of me and it should never be allowed to distract my attention from reading. Music is usually a no-no, too. Though, sometimes classical or electronic can be good drown-out noise for the real world. Haha! But yet other music and I end up like this:
6.) One book at a time or several at once?
One book! My brain doesn’t like being thrown off the path and having to keep track of multiple worlds. Frankly, I’m usually a one series type of person, but I’ve been trying to cut that habit lately since it takes far too long to get through books that way. But alas, my brain really likes being in one world at a time. Especially when writing reviews. Can’t starting crossing good writing with bad writing or fantasy with scifi. So, one and done(or on to the next one :p).
7.) Read at home or everywhere?
I used to say at home. Though, I’ve started to branch out from that. Now, I read while walking on my lunch break, while biking at the gym (making sure to hold the book with a towel so it doesn’t get sweaty obviously!), and who knows where I’ll try next. :p I’d like to find a nice tree branch to sit on and read. That would be perfect. ^.^
8.) Read aloud or silently in your head?
Silently. Everyone already thinks I’m crazy. They don’t need to be reaffirmed of it. :p Plus I don’t comprehend things as well when I’m forced to read them aloud, at least not in the way that I read for fun.
9.) Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
I plead the fifth! HA! Actually, I’m completely guilty of jumping to the next page, but only the page that’s opened. I don’t skip pages to find out what happens. I like the ride, not the end goal.
10.) Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
BREAK THE SPINE?! What’s wrong with you people?! You people are banned from ever touching books again!
11.) Do you write in books?
More blasphemy! What is with all the blasphemy in these questions?! No! I do not write in books. I don’t like words, stains, kinks, creases, or any form of perfection in my books. The book needs to consistently look like it was just printed! Bam! Hot off the press!

P.s. I am no longer doing blog tags because I will not have the time to devote to them in the coming months. So, while I thank you for tagging me in the past, I request that you tag some other amazing, fun bloggers to participate in book tags and other tags alike. Thank you! ^.^
