Reading Habits Tag | Book Tag

Hello, my fellow Spirals!

I am assuming this book tag was created by Ariel Bissett on YouTube but I was tagged by Rab’s Bookish Planet. This tag looks quite fun and I’m so happy to do it.

Now let’s get into it!

1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

Yep, my bedroom. So I have this whole ritual at night where I do my skincare routine (yes I have gotten into it lately and lemme tell you, it’s therapeutic as hell), switch on the fairy lights, play some Lo-Fi beats in the background and settle on my bed under the comforter and read. It’s absolute bliss!

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

Well technically I do use bookmarks but I have this knack for collecting pretty cloth tags and using them as my bookmark. I love collecting unique or pretty bookmarks but end up using the worst ones 😂

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

Earlier I used to stop midsentence if I ever felt sleepy (yes I was that weird) but now I try to get to an end of a paragraph or section before stopping.

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?

I do read while eating but ONLY when I’m reading on the Kindle and the book is riveting. Otherwise I can’t be bothered. And I’m pretty sure I look exactly like Ron while doing that 😂

5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

Like I mentioned in a previous answer, I love to listen to Lo-Fi beats while reading. I find any songs with lyrics too distracting while reading. Give Lo-Fi beats a try if you want something to play in the background while studying, working or reading. Here’s the website to find some amazing & free music to download: Lofi Records

6. One book at a time or several at once?

Several books at once. I was a One-Book-At-A-Time kind of person, but I get bored when I am reading a long, chunky non-fiction book. Now I like to switch things up and read a thriller or fiction while reading a non-fiction book.

7. Reading at home or everywhere?

Haha, everywhere. I think that’s the beauty of Kindle, I slip it into a sling bag and carry it LITERALLY everywhere. I also love to go down to the park with a book and read there.

8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?

Umm, silently! Do people read books out loud?!

9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

Nope nope nope. I do skim through paragraphs sometimes but don’t skip.

10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

I don’t actively break the spine (some people do that), but I am not too bothered if it does break. Unless it’s some book that I really love, then I try to keep it new.

11. Do you write in your books?

I have actually gotten into the habit of annotating and it’s definitely so fun! I like to write remarks or my thoughts like “Oh my god I can’t believe he just did that” or so on. It’s not always something super profound but I think it adds that touch of personality to the book. Plus it’s so nice to read them after a few years when you pick up the book once again.

I would like to tag:

I’d love to hear your answers down in the comments!
