As you may be aware, I have recently gotten back into the mood for doing tags! It’s been quite a while since I last did tags and I realise that I probably have lots of new followers now who actually don’t know that much about me. So what better way for them to learn more about me than by completing this tag. I was not tagged by anyone but who cares, eh?
Can you stop reading at any time, or does it have to be a certain page or chapter?
I much prefer to finish reading at the end of a chapter. It is where I would naturally stop reading. However, being that I usually end up reading on my break, on the bus, etc, I sometimes have to stop reading earlier than the chapter end but I always get the end of the chapter as soon as I can!
Do you eat or drink anything whilst reading?
Again, it depends where and how I’m reading. If I’m reading a paperback or hardback then there will be NO food but water or hot drinks are likely to be consumed. If I’m reading via an e-reader or my phone, food can be consumed but only something that I can eat with one hand and nothing too messy! If I’m reading an audiobook, I will eat and drink absolutely anything!
Can you read listening to music or watching tv?
No TV! But music is somewhat a must. I’ve gotten better at reading in silence as the years have gone by and I’ve had to but generally speaking, I much prefer to read with music blaring in my ears!
One book at a time or several at once?
Several. I have tried to read just one book at a time but I always fail. I am far too much of a mood reader!
Reading at home or everywhere?
Everywhere! In fact, reading at home is really difficult for me. I find it far too tempting to just turn on the TV… but I do love reading before bed sometimes.
Reading out loud or in your head?
In my head for sure. I don’t know if I’ve ever read out loud other than to someone else!
Do you read ahead or skip pages?
No, I literally would not be able to do it without having a mental breakdown.
Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
Keeping it new! There is no reason to break the spine.
Do you write books or just read them?
At the moment, just read but I have written books in the past. I keep thinking I’ll write again one day but nothing has come to mind recently.
