I wasn’t tagged, but WHO CARES, RIGHT ?
I love everything centered around reading, and if I see anyone talking about their reading habits, there’s a 99% chance I’ll head over and check it out. So HIT ME UP WITH YO READING LIVES YO 😎 So, here goes nothing !
1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
Nah, I read everywhere; bed, kitchen, toilet ( no shame whatsoever 😂), on my desk, anywhere. If I don’t need my hands, I’ll use them to hold my book.
2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?
BOOKMARK. Always 💙 I even have an Emergency Bookmark on my bedside just in case I misplaced mine. I might bookmark with the paper I tuck in my book that I use to write my review notes if I lost my bookmark or something. But no Random Paper. And NO DOG EARS. #READBOOKSNOTDOGS
3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?
I rarely stop reading in the middle of a chapter. I hate having to reread to find my exact place, so stopping at the end of the chapter, even if it’s long, is SO much neater.
4. Do you eat or drink while reading?
Nope, not really. (If anything, I sometimes have lemonade. I 💙 lemonade!!) I am a bit paranoid when it comes to eating and reading at the same time. I mean, I could spill it all over the book, get oily hands and ruin the cover, or get to a plot twist just as I’m swallowing and then choke and die. See ? That’s some Final Destination right there. And OH, MY GOD, reading in the bath ? How do people even DO that ? If you’re a bath reader, you have my respects, and much more composure than me 😂
5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
Music !! I can’t always have golden silence around, so I put music. It’ll be either a song I’ve listened to enough times not to distract me, or rain. I literally have 12 minutes of rain sounds on my phone JUST for reading. I put it on a loop and I’m set !!
6. One book at a time or several at once?
I mostly read one book at a time. Sometimes I’ll read a new book while rereading another one. Or I’ll read several books while I’m going through a book from A Song of Ice and Fire series by G.R.R Martin ( because if I ever read them alone, there’s at least an 89.56% chance I’ll land in a book slump.)
7. Reading at home or everywhere?
Everywhere ! Well, no everywhere everywhere. Not while chasing a prison escapee. But you get the idea.
8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Silently ! I read SO much faster if I do it silently. Plus, if I read out loud all the time, me and Dried Throat will be best buddies, and will probably go on epic adventures with Horribilus Headacheus 😂
9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
You see, I don’t like reading romance so when it gets too much I’ll probably skip to the actions.
10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I’d REALLY want to keep my books’ spines like new. But spines are fragile ( SOMEBODY INVENT A SOLUTION ) and they break. So if that happens despite my efforts, it would have been unavoidable ( right ? *paranoïa*
11. Do you write in your books? *GASP* NEVER.
1. When do you find yourself reading?
Morning, afternoon, evening, whenever you get the chance or all the time? Whenever I get the chance !
2. What is your best setting to read in?
If I had to describe the perfect reading setting for me, I’d imagine a big window facing East. A cool weather, sunrise. Birds chirping and a nice breeze. I’d sit by that window in a cozy reading nook next to my bookshelf and I’d read with no disturbances or commitments. *Sigh*
3. What do you do first – Read or Watch?
I’d really rather read first ! If I watch first, I’ll probably DNF the book. It almost happened with The Hunger Games ! I watched the first movie at least 3 times before I knew there was a book. I fell asleep reading the book multiple times because it wasn’t much different and I basically have a mental tattoo of it.
4. What form do you prefer? Audiobook, E-book or physical book?
Physical book all the way !
5. Do you have a unique habit when you read?
I don’t think so, no ( Yup, I find me boring too xD) 6. Do book series have to match? YASS PLEASE. 🙌🙌🙌🙌
