Today I have decided to participate in the Currently Reading Tag! It’s been a while since I’ve done a tag but I’ve decided to start doing them again so you may see a few more of these on the blog!
This tag I found out about from Sarah over at Book Hook Nook – Find here post here.
How Many Books Do You Usually Read At Once?
Too many. I am awful at just reading one book. I often have multiple on the go. For example, at the moment, I am currently reading two audiobooks, two ebooks and three paper copy books.
And that doesn’t even include all of the books that are still just part-finished. Ooops.
Do You Ever Switch Bookmarks While You’re Partway Through a Book?
The only reason I do this is when I have run out of magnetic bookmarks. I’ll swap out a magnetic for a paper bookmark on a book that I’m not currently reading but I am partway through. I’ll then use the magnetic one in a book I am currently reading!
Where Do You Keep The Book(s) You Are Currently Reading?
Everywhere. Honestly. If I’ve taken it out the house and I don’t then read in bed, it stays in my bag. But if I’ve read it in bed then it might go onto my desk or if I was really tired, it might just stay in bed with me! (I have a king size bed that I share with no-one so it just ends up on the side of the bed I don’t sleep in).
What Time of Day Do You Spend The Most Time Reading?
Honestly, it really varies depending on what I’m doing. Lately, I’ve been travelling by bus and train a lot so have been reading a lot in the day. But sometimes I read at night too.
How Long Do You Typically Read in One Sitting?
I have quite a short attention span so unless the book has gripped me so much that I’ve lost sense of time, I can generally only read for an hour. I then need to break to do something else, even if it’s just making a cup of tea, before reading on further!
Do You Read Hardbacks With The Dusk Jacket On or Off?
Off. I don’t like to ruin the dust jackets and so I much prefer reading without the jacket!
What Position Do You Mainly Use To Read?
Sitting is definitely my preferred method of reading but I do read lying down in bed sometimes.
Do You Take The Book You Are Currently Reading Everywhere You Go?
Not always – it depends where I’m going. For example, I’m not likely to take my book to the gym – although I do listen to audiobooks there! – but if I’m going out all day it will just be in my bag, just in case.
Also, I have the kindle on my phone so technically I always have a book with me if I need one!
How Often Do You Update Your Goodreads Progress On The Book You’re Currently Reading?
Never. I actually stopped using Goodreads last year as I kept forgetting to update my progress. I now tend to just use my bullet journal and try to remember!
And that’s the tag! I’d love to know if we’re at all similar so do let me know in the comments or if you do the tag yourself, tag me in!
