I have been tagged by Geoffrey Valentine from the amazing blog, https://highteadreams.wordpress.com/ to answer the following questions.
Do you have a certain place at home for reading? My fave place to read is my bed. I like to bunch all my pillows together at the headboard and snuggle back into a comfy spot. With my hair pulled back and glasses on, that’s when the reading begins.
Bookmark or random piece of paper? Either one that’s handy. I’ve even used business cards to mark the page.
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages? Definitely have to finish the chapter that I’m on before I can put the book down for the night. It’s kind of like finishing a thought for me, finishing the chapter just makes it easier to process what I’ve read so that I can take a break before continuing the story.
Do you eat or drink while reading? Never. I’m sort of a “clean freak” and don’t want anything food related near my books.
Multitasking: Music or TV while reading? Not for me. I mean, I love music and a great t.v. show, but when it comes to reading, I like to focus my attention on the book in my hands. Outside distractions take away from the imagination, in my opinion.
One book at a time or several at once? One book at a time. I’ve never been able to “multi-book”.
Reading at home or everywhere? Even though I prefer to read in my bedroom, I can easily read anywhere. I used to work in a salon and in between clients, my nose would be buried in a book.
Reading out loud or silently in your head? Both, but I prefer silently in my head. I’ll only read out loud when I stumble upon something that makes me think and go…. “hmmm”…
Do you read ahead or even skip pages? No way. Actually, I’ve reread paragraphs or pages before just to make sure that I’ve grasped every minute detail of the story.
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new? Keeping it like new, definitely! It may sound weird, but seeing the folded spine of a book makes me cringe. *shivers*
Do you write in your books? No. If I have to make notes, I’ll jot them down on a piece of paper, then fold the sheet in half and use that as a bookmark.
