I saw this on dini panda reads, and I thought it would be a lot of fun! Book tags are something I love doing because it’s fun and way to look at all of the books you have read in the past! I wasn’t challenged to do The Reading Habits Book Tag, but who says who I need an invitation?!
DO YOU HAVE A CERTAIN PLACE AT HOME FOR READING?
BOOKMARK OR RANDOM PIECE OF PAPER?
I will use just about anything, but I do love bookmarks! I tend to leave my bookmarks in books when I finish them, and then I forget about them and lose them. So I end up using pieces of paper more since I lose all my bookmarks.
CAN YOU JUST STOP READING OR DO YOU HAVE TO STOP READING AFTER A CHAPTER OR A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF PAGES?
Chapters! I hate stopping in the middle of a chapter. If I need to run and get a snack or use the bathroom, I’ll stop in the middle of a chapter, but if I’m just putting the book down for the night, I have to end at a chapter.
DO YOU EAT OR DRINK WHILE READING?
YES! I always have my water bottle next to me while I am reading! Also, I love to eat goldfish or popcorn while I am reading as well! I don’t eat every time I read, but it does enhance the experience!
MULTITASKING: MUSIC OR TV WHILE READING?
I will put on instrumental music or ambient sounds in the background, but I struggle to read and watch TV at the same time. If I really try, I could do it, but I prefer not to.
ONE BOOK AT A TIME OR SEVERAL?
One. I feel like it takes so much longer to finish a book I read more than one at once!
READING AT HOME OR EVERYWHERE?
Mostly at home, because when I leave, I’m usually on a mission. Although I do like to go to the park and coffee shops to read.
READING OUT LOUD OR SILENTLY IN YOUR HEAD?
For the life of me, I can not read out loud. I trip over my words, and I keep needing to stop to get water, and it’s not for me. I’m a in my head reader 1000000%
DO YOU READ AHEAD OR EVEN SKIP PAGES?
If I’m not into the book but want to know what happens, I’ll skip pages. If I think someone might die, I will search for their name someone ahead of the book if I really don’t want them to die. I will go to the last page to see how many pages there are to divide up the book, but that’s about it.
BREAKING THE SPINE OR KEEPING IT LIKE NEW?
How does one read a book and not break the spine? Like is that possible?
DO YOU WRITE IN YOUR BOOKS?
It depends on one the book. If it’s a self-help book or a motivational book, I will write and highlight in it. Pretty much any other book, I leave alone unless there is a quote that hits me where it hurts in it.
WHEN DO YOU FIND YOURSELF READING?
Pretty much whenever I can. I always have a book on me and If I can I’ll read it!
WHAT IS YOUR BEST SETTING TO READ IN?
As I said, I love my reading nook so much! It’s so warm and cozy, and I did a whole post about how it’s set up, and you can check it out here! It’s perfect for reading in, and I spend so much time in it! I also really like to go to the park or a coffee shop to read.
WHAT DO YOU DO FIRST: READ OR WATCH?
I prefer the book first, but I will watch first. It’s hard not to some times, but I will look up how close it is to the book so I can see what I’m missing and if I should read the book.
WHAT FORM DO YOU PREFER: AUDIOBOOK, E-BOOK OR PHYSICAL BOOK?
I prefer physical books. They are superior, in my opinion. I also do like e-books, but they don’t give me the same feeling. I’ve listened to one audiobook, and it was so hard for me to follow along with the story and focus.
DO YOU HAVE A UNIQUE HABIT WHEN YOU READ?
I don’t think I do. I mean, I almost always have a candle going when I read, but I feel like that’s pretty normal.
DO BOOK SERIES HAVE TO MATCH?
YESSS. It bothers me so much! I really wanted the Owlcrate edition of Ruthless Gods, but I didn’t have their version of Wicked Saints, so I only have the kindle ARC.
Let me know down below if you have any weird reading habits! You all should do this Book Tag Reading Habits! it was so much fun!
