The Reading Habit Tag

Image result for reading habit

Many thanks to Spooky's House of Books for creating the first fun tag of 2017 and BrokenTune for letting me know. 

Here is mine. 

1: Do you have a certain place in your home for reading: 
Anywhere that I could sit down. 

2: Bookmark or random piece of paper? 

I use ribbon as bookmark. The ribbons I got are recycled materials from gift wrappings. I cut them into book length and use this as bookmark. Also used whatever receipt I got as bookmark if I lost the ribbon bookmark. 

3:Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop read after a chapter / certain number of pages: 

I can stop anytime and pick up wherever I left off. 

4:Do you eat or drink while read: 
Yes. Eat chocolate, peanuts... Drink whiskey, coffee, hot chocolate..

5: multitasking: music or TV while reading: 
TV or music with reading. But not all three at the same time.

6:one book at a time or several at once: 

Several books at once. One to be kept with me while I was out of the house, and a few books to read when I get home. 

8: reading out loud or silently in your head:
Silence. I'm reading out loud in my mind and sometimes in the voice of the writer. 

9:Do you read ahead or even skip pages:

Read all pages. I don't skip pages. But will skip ahead to see if some characters survived to the end or not if it is late and i have to go to sleep. 


10:Barking the spine or keeping it like new:
Keep it new, always. 

11:Do you write in your books: 
No. I don't like to write in books unless there is something I need to remember.
