I saw this tag over at In Case Of Bookishness and I really liked it, so I decided to do it. I thought it would be a great way for you to get to know me a bit better. So here we go.
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
I like to read in bed, wheter it’s late at night or in the middle of the afternoon. You can also find me reading on the couch in our livingroom, but I prefer to sit in my own room, as I get less distracted that way.
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Bookmark. Definitely bookmark. They are sooooooo pretty. I love making them myself and I’ve collected a whole bunch of ’em by now. I really love them.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter / certain amount of pages?
Usually I stop after a chapter. I find it hard to get back into the story if I just stop in the middle of it, so when I do stop in the middle of a page I almost always have to reread the chapter. When the chapters are really long I stop after a scene though.
Do you eat or drink while reading?
Most of the time I don’t, except when it’s tea. I love to snuggle up under a blanket with a book and a hot cup of tea.
multitasking : music or TV while reading?
No. Not at all. It has to be quiet in order for me to read. I get distracted way too easily. It’s a serious problem. So I always sit somewhere very quiet to read.
One book at a time or several at once?
I read only one book at a time. I’ve tried to read multiple books at once, but I always end up just reading the book I like most and when it’s finished going back to the other one.
Reading at home or everywhere?
I prefer reading at home, it’s not as noisy, but I do read elsewhere. I just get distracted more easily and sometimes I think I won’t have enough time to finish a chapter, so I don’t even start reading.
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Definitely silently. When I read out loud I just concentrate too much on my own voice and I swear it’s waaaaaaaay slower.
Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
No, I don’t see why you would do that. I’m the kind of reader that reads every word. Except maybe the word of thanks at the end…
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I would say keeping it like new. I do NOT break the spine on purpose. Sometimes it just happens a little while reading the book.
Do you write in your books?
NEVER. I don’t want to ruin a perfect book and when I reread a book I don’t want to be influenced by my previous thoughts. So nooooo.
Do you like this tag? Are you thinking about doing it yourself?
Consider yourself tagged!
