Reading Habits Book Tag

I’ve not participated in a book tag before but I thought this one looked fun. I enjoy reading them on other blogs as they give you a bit of an insight into the person behind the writing and so I decided to join in.

This particular tag I read initially on Jen of Books

Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

No, I read wherever I happen to be. On the sofa, in bed – occasionally laying on the floor of the living room.

Bookmark or random piece of paper?

This one makes me laugh as per one of my previous posts – Bookmarks  I can let you know that I’m a serial page folder (the shock & the horror) however, when I do use something to hold where I am in a book I use a bookmark.

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?

Oooh the only time I will stop mid chapter if is i’m interrupted. I will always try to reach the end of the next chapter. Sometime I will check how long the next chapter is before I embark to make sure I have enough time to complete it.


Do you eat or drink while reading?

Yes – I like to have a hot drink like tea or coffee and easy to grab snacks usually crisps.

Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

TV is too distracting but I enjoy listening to music while reading.

One book at a time or several at once?

Several! I usually have about four on the go – three to suit whatever reading mood i’m in (crime, sci-fi, YA etc.) and one that I should have DNF’d but keep pretending that I’m going to go back to.

Reading at home or everywhere?

At the moment obviously its at home. But I do enjoy reading out and about at a picnic or occasional coffee shop when I get the chance.

Reading out loud or silently in your head?

Silently in my head!

Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

Books should be lived in, its one of the reasons that I enjoy secondhand books. I also don’t understand how people read books without breaking the spine. I find it impossible.

Do you write in your books?

No that’s a little too lived in. Actually yes I do if they are a gift for someone else, I may write a small note on the inside cover.

Readabits Questions:

When do you find yourself reading?

I like to read in the evenings it helps me relax.

What do you do first, read or watch?

This really depends on what I come across first. If given the choice initially, I would go with the book as usually films or TV series rework or tweak the story so its interesting to read the original.


What for do you prefer? Audio, E-book, or Physical?

I prefer physical books however, I enjoy all forms of books and they each have their positive points.

Do you have a unique habit when you read?

Nope – or not that I’m aware of!

Do book series have to match?

They don’t HAVE to match. But it makes my bookshelf much better when they do.

I hope you enjoyed reading and learning a little bit more about my reading habits.

Also I tag anyone who reads this and wants to join in!
