Reading Habits Tag

I have been tagged in the Reading Habits Tag by the wonderful Megan over at Reading in the Sunshine I love book tags, you find out wonderful things about fellow bloggers so thanks so much for tagging me! Hope you enjoy my tag!

Lets get started!

1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

I tend to read a lot of places at home, my favourite places are the garden in the sunshine and in bed! There is nothing better than chilling with a lovely cold drink outside in the summer or tucked up with a cup of tea in bed. I love those nights when I can go to be early and get a few hours reading done!

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

Hmm this is a tricky one!  I like to use bookmarks, however depending on where I am reading and what I am reading I sometimes just grab the nearest thing to me, which can be a scrap of paper! I do have a wonderful new bookmark though that I am trying to use for all books at the moment.

3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter or certain number of pages?

O.K, I like to finish at the end of chapters really, it makes it easier for me to slip back into the story when I get the time to start reading again. However some books I have been reading lately have really long chapters and it is not always possible for me to get to the end of one. - When I am in bed and I cannot keep my eyes open! So I have to try and find a paragraph to stop at instead!

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?

I like to drink, not all the time while I am reading but I love a cup of tea or coffee with my book. I don't like to eat though, this is mainly because I don't want to ruin the book, get chocolate on the pages or anything.

5. Do you watch tv or listen to music while reading?

No, I get too distracted! Unless the hubby is watching the football, that's O.K as I have zero interest in that and can just zone out! If others are watching T.V then I have to go into another room just so I can get immersed into the story.

6. One book at a time or several at once?

Normally I only like to read one book at a time, to allow myself to really get to know the story well and the characters, however at the moment I have a couple on the go, the reason? There are so many good books out there at the moment that I want to get through, also one of the books I am reading has really tiny writing and I am finding it a bit of a struggle, so to break it up I started another...

7. Reading at home or everywhere?

Normally I only read at home, if I have a long journey on a train/plane then I will take my book to read. I cannot read in the car though, makes me feel really ill so that sucks as I regularly go on long car journeys. I also enjoy reading at the in-laws house, they are really good and I have to do very little when I am there so I can just sit and enjoy a book for the whole weekend.

8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?

Unless I am teaching at school I always read in my head, I can read a lot faster when it is in my head. The only other exception is if I am sharing a book with my hubby - something about travel normally, then we will read this together.

9. Do you ever read ahead or skip pages?

Noooooooo, never skip pages or read ahead. I do sometimes check to see when the chapter is going to be ending - for sleeping purposes ha ha! I don't want to spoil anything for myself though so would never read ahead.

10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

I HATE breaking the spine, I like my books to look new and if I lend a book out and it comes back with the spine bent I am not happy!

11. Do you write in your books?

No and I would never! A book needs to be respected any by defacing it in any way is not respecting it! I sometimes make notes for review purposes but on a separate piece of paper that I can slip in and then refer to when writing the review. 

Once again I would like to thank Megan for tagging me in this and so my tags go to: 





I think this tag has been around for a long time and if you have already done the tag then please pass to someone else, however if you are reading this blog and you have not been tagged and would like to be then please consider yourself tagged :D
