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.
Do you have a specific place for reading?
Not necessarily. I like to read somewhere comfortably though, like either on a sofa or my bed. But I have read in all sorts of places, like on the bus, plane, train, airport, dentist’s… IKEA!
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Probably a random piece of paper. I never seem to find my bookmarks when I need them. But I never fold the corner of the page I’m reading on. Ever. It’s this unwritten law of mine.
Do you eat or drink while reading?
I drink and eat usually only while I’m reading on an ebook, so I can prop my device up and things don’t get (too) messy. And if they do, you can always wipe it off from the screen. No sweat.
Music or tv while reading?
None. It’s impossible for me to read like that, I just get distracted and stay on the same page on the same paragraph again and again wondering what on earth it is talking about.
One book at a time or several?
If I am reading one book at a time, that book will definitely get finished fast. But if I am reading a couple of books simultaneously, then all of the books are going to lag a bit and take longer to finish than if I had just been reading that one thing.
Do you prefer to read at home or elsewhere?
Home. Easier to concentrate and usually more comfortable.
Read out loud or silently?
Silently! I only read out loud when I’m reading to someone or for a class or something. For some reason my mouth always tends to go dry almost immediately after I start reading out loud. I have no idea why.
Do you read ahead or skip pages?
I try not to, but in a really gripping moment I may accidentally skip lines to see what happens next, and sometimes when I’m casually flipping through a book I read a spoiler and I’m just like, ugh, why did I do that?!
Break the spine or keep it like new?
I try to keep it like new, but I can’t say it always works like that.
Do you write in books?
No, unless it’s for my studies like with Animal Farm (ergh, who agrees with me this book is so unbelievably boring, despite having a good political thingy to it?).
What books are you reading now?
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater and Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard.
What is your childhood favorite book?
From when I was 3-6 years old I loved the book We’re going on a bear hunt by Michael Rosen.
What is your all-time favorite book?
When I was a tween that was Anne of Green Gables, but now I don’t really have one, but I do have a selection of all-time favourites that is constantly growing!
And that is the tag! I hope you guys all enjoyed it! I tag… anyone who would like to do this 🙂 Please leave the link to your post of this tag (if you do it) in the comments so I can check it out!
