Hey everyone! So,
last year I was tagged by the lovely Ally at Ally Writes Things (go check out her blog, it’s amazing!) to do this tag (she actually made it, which is BEYOND COOL) and I’m so excited to finally be doing this.
- Pingback to this post or me!
- List some of your good reading habits, the things you think you do well
- Nominate some of your blogging friends
I’m well aware I’m being a bit cheeky here, but here me out! I know people who are always looking at books, talking about books, buying loads of books – but then hardly ever read them! I feel like their hobby is more browsing for books than actually reading books and it’s kind of insane! I do understand though because sometimes after I’ve read a lot one day and I don’t really feel like reading I just browse for books on Overdrive, but I definitely read more than I browse, so I think the fact that I get on with it is a good reading habit haha 🙂
I also know some people who are kind of crazy when it comes to buying books. No judging, I know everyone has their own budgets and priorities, but personally, I think I’m pretty good when it comes to buying books. I’ve mentioned this before, but I bought myself a lovely puffin version of The Count of Monte Cristo and that is like the first book I’ve bought in maybe two or one and a half years??
It’s just that books are so expensive and I prefer to save whatever money I have for the future like costs for uni since I’m still in school (although I don’t have long left!). Libraries and OverDrive are a thing and because I actually have OverDrive accounts for two libraries I have a pretty good access to a lot of books and they’re good libraries. My tip is to just go to the biggest library you can find (make sure they have OverDrive) and then get a library card there.
I also don’t buy a whole series of books if I haven’t even read the first book yet. I’m just too scared to because I feel like this could end up in disaster if you end up really disliking the first book. Personally, I would actually prefer buying some of my favourite books because I reread books I previously loved when I’ve forgotten quite a bit of it and end up enjoying it just as much as the first time.
Food and Drink
This is something that terrifies me. Whenever I’m reading a physical book (which, in all honesty, isn’t too often because as I said before a lot of the books I read are from OverDrive) I’m always so careful. I don’t think I’ve ever spilled something on one of the books I read for pleasure before, although I have spilled drinks on my school books and was in PHYSICAL PAIN over it, okay. I think I’m pretty good with that, although that also might because I tend to read ebooks and I have had 824366237426 meals with me and my iPad and it has been great.
