The Book Lover’s Tag

So in the interest of readers getting to know me better, I have decided to attempt this tag that has been floating around in the blogosphere.

  1. Do you have a specific place for reading?
    • Not really! I am able to concentrate while reading a book anywhere! (My mind manages to ignore anything and everything that happens around me, thats bad in a way I guess but I’m not too unhappy about it.
  2. Bookmarks or random pieces of paper?
    • Random pieces of paper definitely! It’s usually a sticky note, or a receipt or some form of paper that resembles a bookmark!
  3. Can you just stop anywhere or must it be at the end of the chapter?
    • Usually at the end of a paragraph, so that I can pick up reading it again easily.
  4. Do you eat or drink while reading?
    • Most of the time!
  5. Music or TV while reading?
    • No, just the book!
  6. One book at a time or several?
    • Depends on the books I’m reading, if they are hardcore literature, then maybe one at a time, but if they are easy reads then maybe two or three (depending on my mood)
  7. Do you prefer to read at home or elsewhere?
    • As mentioned previously, anywhere!
  8. Read out loudly or silently?
    • Silently (in my head)
  9. Do you read ahead or skip pages?
    • I try not to read ahead, but sometimes when the descriptions are way too long and unnecessary I just skip straight to the dialogue. I enjoy fast paced books, when an author spends more than a paragraph describing a table or a chair I become slightly agitated.
  10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
    • Breaking the spine (writing that out makes me feel like a criminal!)
  11. Do you write in your books?
    • Sometimes, I have this habit of writing down interesting quotes from the books I read in a separate book – in addition to that I also underline and highlight if there are interesting ideas.
    • For example, this quote from “The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho” went straight into the quote book, I mentioned earlier, “Your eyes show the strength of your soul”

 

I would like to tag the following users to take part in this! If you have already, don’t worry about it!

Have a great day!

Talk soon!

  1. Hey, thanks for tagging me in this! I’ll have to go through and do it later on this week, but for now, it looks like I have some similar reading habits as you (random receipts and post-its for bookmarks all the way!).

  2. Great tag! You’re so lucky you can read anywhere and stay focused. I have a hard time with that sometimes…
    Oh no, breaking the spine *and* writing on books? That’s savage! :O
    Hahaha just kidding XD (but really, I can’t do it!)
    Thank you so much for the tag ❤️ Loved reading your answers!
