The Reading Habits Tag – Part 2!

RH tag

Nancy tagged me in her reading habits post =P

  • Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

Not really, though I tend to read either on an armchair in the living room or downstairs on the couch. As long as I have a puppy next to me, I’m good =P

  • Bookmark or random piece of paper?

Both! Mostly random paper rn, as all my bookmarks save my favorite one are still in boxes with my school stuff XD

  • Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?

I try to either stop at chapters or breaks, but I’m good stopping wherever.

  • Do you eat or drink while reading?

I read while eating lunch all the time! Dinner too if I’m eating alone, otherwise my family makes fun of me XD

  • Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

Occasionally. I’m more likely to listen to music while reading than watch TV.

  • One book at a time or several at once?

Several!!! I have too much to read to go one at a time.

  • Reading at home or everywhere?

Everywhere! I normally carry a book with me just in case I have a few spare moments~

  • Reading out loud or silently in your head?

Silently~

  • Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

No way, man! I see enough spoilers on the internet!

  • Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

I try to keep a book new as long as possible, but it doesn’t bother me when the spine breaks either. It’s easier to lay on the table then and keep my place if I’m reading while eating something that requires both hands X,D

  • Do you write in your books?

No way! What kind of monster do you think I am???

Go nuts! Go ahead and copy and paste these questions onto your blog if this tag seems intriguing to you. What weird reading habits do you have??? We’re both dying to know ;D

And just a bit of personal news… I’m officially a librarian! I got hired part-time at two libraries near me!! And I start at both next week!!! I couldn’t possibly choose between them, they’re both great libraries and I’m sure I’ll be very happy. Not to worry, though, my handy dandy planner will be keeping me on task with two jobs, art making, boyfriend visiting, puppy watching, and, of course, this blog =P

The Reading Habits Tag

 

FEH reading

I was tagged by the awesome blogger Michael at My Comic Relief to participate in answering these questions about my reading habits.  Based off his replies to the questions on his blog, he will be disgusted with me when he comes to one of my answers 😉

 

Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

Mostly in bed or on my family room armchair.

Bookmark or random piece of paper?

What ever is closest to me- bills, post-it notes, grocery lists…

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?

I used to stop at chapters but now I stop where ever, even in the middle of a sentence. I’m a mom, wife, librarian, grad student, daughter, friend, volunteer, blogger- I’m exhausted. If I can’t stay up another minute, I put down the book right then and there.

Do you eat or drink while reading?

Nope.

Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

Who needs either when a great story is in front of me?!

One book at a time or several at once?

I always have several books going at once. I always have, and it’s no problem for me to remember the separate plots.

Reading at home or everywhere?

EVERYWHERE!

Reading out loud or silently in your head?

In my head.

Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

This is where I will freak everyone out- I read ahead ALL THE TIME. I read a few chapters in to understand the plot and get to know the characters. Then I read the ending!!! Then I go back to where I left off and finish the book. It’s like a puzzle to me then- if I read ABC and now I know XYZ, I enjoy how the book arrives at the end while I read the middle. I drive my friends in book club crazy that I read this way, but I’ve done it for years, and I’m not going to stop.    ***Sorry(not sorry) Michael!

Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

I’m a librarian- I must keep the book nice for the next reader!!!

Do you write in your books?

Never.
