I came across this book tag on Flowers In The Brain’s Blog and if you follow my blog then you will know I love book tags. As they are fun and everyone can join in. If you do this book tag please tag me as I’d love to know your answers.
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
I read in bed every night, and I spend at least one day a week curled up on the couch reading.
Bookmark or a random piece of paper?
I use all sorts of things, usually a book mark or if I haven’t got one I’ll find a random piece of paper.
Can you stop reading anytime you want or do you have to stop at a certain page, chapter, part etc?
I tend to fall asleep reading, if I don’t I usually read until the end of the paragraph.
Do you eat or drink while reading?
Yes I usually eat and drink while reading, because I live on my own I sometimes read while eating my evening meal.
Can you read while listening to music/watching TV?
I prefer to read without any noise, the odd time I will read with some relaxing music. I can’t read with the TV on anymore however I used to when I was younger.
One book at a time, or several at once?
One book at a time, unless I’m finding one book particularly hard going.
Reading at home or everywhere?
I mainly read at home, but I do take my book with me when I go out so I can read while I’m waiting for things.
Reading out loud or silently in you head?
I read silently in my head.
Do you read ahead or skip pages?
No I never read ahead or skip pages. I have to read the book the way the author wrote it.
Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
I keep my books like new, most of them you can’t even tell they have been read, but someone pointed out to me that the books on my bookshelves look as though they haven’t been read. Since then I don’t mind too much if the odd crease appears on the spine.
Do you write in books?
No, the last books I wrote in was a revision book.
When do you find yourself reading? Morning, afternoon, evening, whenever you get the chance or all the time?
At night in bed, sometimes during the night when I can’t sleep.
What do you do first read or watch?
I’d rather read the book first, but the odd time I’ve enjoyed the film so much I will then read the book.
What form do you prefer? Audio-books, E book, physical book?
I find audio-books quite hard to listen to as I tend to switch off and think of other things while they are playing. I love physical books, but due to a hand injury I can’t hold traditional books due to the weight of them, so I use my Kindle. I still buy traditional books as I like to add the odd physical books to my bookcase.
Do you have a unique habit when you read?
No none except I probably tut my head off when my reading gets disturbed.
Do book series have to match?
I try to match the physical books in a series if I can. I’ve even purchased books from the USA to carry on with the same style of covers in series. I don’t have many book that are in a series that don’t match each other. If I have books that don’t match I tend to put them on the shelves where you can’t see them quite as easily.
