Hey Pals!! Today, I am gonna be doing The Reading Habits Tag! Now, when I read I might look like a typical bookworm, with nothing special, just trying to find a comfortable position to sit and making weird faces from time to time when the characters make dumb decisions, but that doesn’t mean I can’t do a tag to analyse my reading habits!
I was tagged by Rabhya @ Rab’s Bookish Planet. She has an amazing book blog and she posts almost daily which is so cool, go check it out! Now, let’s get started with the tag!!
1: Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
No, anywhere the lighting is maximum is my place to read, but I usually prefer reading on my bed. As for audiobooks, I read them anywhere…except of the bathroom of course, but I would read them in the bathroom too though I don’t think my mom would be too fond of that idea 👀.
2: Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Bookmarks all the way 🤩! I have this really huge collection of both DIY and readymade bookmarks and I treasure it so much, so bookmarks it is!
3: Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?
90% of the time I have to stop at the end of a chapter. It just feels right, you know? But sometimes I don’t mind stopping in the middle of a long chapter at the end of a scene break.
4: Do you eat or drink while reading?
Um, I can do both while reading but I usually don’t eat while reading a physical book. I sometimes eat my lunch/dinner while listening to an audiobook though 😁.
5: Multitasking- Music or TV while reading?
No way! I can’t focus if something else is playing around me. I don’t mind if somebody else is watching TV but I can’t do it myself.
6: One book at a time or several at once?
I can’t even play one Scrabble game online, I need to have more than one. So, you can very well imagine that it is not in me to read only one book at a time. For instance, I need to have an audiobook started even when I am reading a physical book because audiobooks provide good breaks from physical books. And I have one physical book on hold at almost all times so I read more than one book at a time.
7: Reading at home or everywhere?
Everywhere baby! This one time I literally downloaded the epub of a book on my cousin’s phone while we were standing inside a shop just because I was bored. And I literally read standing there while she bought her clothes. Later, she did do a very good job of making sure I understand just how much of a psychopath she thinks I am 🙄, but what do these non-readers know about the struggles of us readers?
8: Reading out loud or silently in your head?
In my head. Until two years ago, I used to lip sync to whatever I was reading and people always looked at me weird but I got rid of the habit, thankfully.
9: Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
Y–yes, I do that 😶. But it’s only when the author has started to ramble on and on about the scenery or some other stupid stuff that I couldn’t care less about. And yes, I have skipped pages too, but that happened in only one or two books.
10: Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
Until a few months back, breaking a book’s spine used to bother me like my life depended on it. But then sense was knocked into my head somehow and I realized eh, who cares? A book will still be a book no matter if the spine is broken or not. So, it doesn’t matter to me anymore.
11: Do you write in your books?
I’m gonna assume this question is not supposed to refer to textbooks because ahem, my textbooks have notes scribbled in them like craaazy. My novels though don’t have anything written on them, except of The Final Empire which I have scribbled a little bit on…I kinda regret it now but well, can’t do anything about it now.
