By now, I realized that I mostly posted reviews. Other than reviews, I posted weekly meme like Wishful Wednesday (if I happened to remember it) and maybe Monthly Recap. Nothing beyond that. So, when I came across this post from Stefanie I gladly grab the tag and make this post.
Please, have a peek to my reading habits!
- Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
Not a certain place but mostly, I read while sitting or lying on my bed. And I often read on the couch in my living room too, since there was where my bookshelf located.
- Bookmark or random piece of paper?
I could say both. Bookmark, usually. And piece of paper I used to write down highlighted parts.
- Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter or a certain amount of pages?
Well, I can stop reading every time I need to do something else or when I got sleepy. But sometimes I do have that habit to stop after chapters or hundred of pages (get it even) just in case I have no bookmark available and need to memorize the last page to pick up later.
- Do you eat or drink while reading?
I drink while reading, especially when I have a long session of reading (and more than often I read hundred of pages in one sitting). And eat, if its just bread or chips.
- Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
Music, yes. But these days I just read without listening to music. No particular reason though.
- One book at a time or several at once?
Several at once! I don’t know, I sometimes get bored with the story that comes in slow pace WHILE at the same time I’m still willing to read, so, I turned to another books. I can read two to three books at a time. Its just these days, I happened to read interesting books so I read book after a book at a time.
- Reading at home or everywhere?
Home. But I can read everywhere. Nothing can stop me from spending the spare time outside with a book in my hand. I always have a book or two on my bag (don’t we all?).
- Reading out loud or silently on your head?
Silently. And one time or twice, when I happened to read book of poems, I voluntarily recited the words JUST to feel the beauty in them (when I’m alone, of course! Hehhe).
- Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
I do. JUST when I met a novel that I feel the story’s not going anywhere nor escalating and FORCE me to skip pages. Its special case though.
- Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I intended to keeping it like new. They deserve that, at least.
- Do you write in your books?
In old times, I wrote my name on every first page of the books I had. But now I don’t. If its about highlighting some lines, I used colored sticky notes.
