My Reading Habits


I’ve been trying to read more book bloggers lately and it’s turning out to be very rewarding. Recently I stumbled across a tag that Bee from VIVATRAMP did back in 2014 called. I really liked the idea of sharing my reading habits. Since she tagged everyone, I decided to bring back this tag like bringing back a dead meme! (Questions are at the bottom.)

I read in bed a lot

It would be a dream come true to have my one little reading nook.

I love reading on-the-go.

I’ve always enjoyed reading while travelling, so I’m thankful I don’t get motion sick from it.

I usually have a bookmark.

On the off chance that I don’t have a bookmark near me, I use a piece of paper. I avoid folding the corner at all costs, even if it means writing down the page number or recording it on GoodReads.

I can just stop reading if I have to.

But it has to be at the end of the page. If I can control it, I stop at the end of a chapter.

I will have something to drink while I read.

But I never eat.

I can listen to music when I read

And it doesn’t bother me if the TV is on while I read in the living room. But I prefer to read in silence.

I usually only read on book at a time.

But with my job I sometimes end of reading 2 books at once. One for pleasure and one for work. Also when I read from larger books, like my Harry Potter film reference books, I will read a trade paperback when it is too big to read when I’m not in bed or on the couch.

I read everywhere.

I don’t care where I read so I usually carry a book with me.

I love reading aloud.

But I get tired very quickly so I normally read in my bed.

I never read ahead or skip pages.

But if there isn’t a table of contents then I’m always looking ahead to see how long the chapters are.

I try to keep smaller books looking like they’re new.

But with larger books, I’m very likely to break the spine.

I used to write in my books in university.

But now I write notes in my phone if I plan on writing about them later.

I tag…
