Sleepy Sunday: Reading Habits Book Tag

Hello everybody! I hope you’re all well. Today I’m coming to you with a book tag I found on Kirsty’s blog The Bibliophile Girl, called the Reading Habits Book Tag. Like most readers, I have particular preferences when it comes to reading. Here are just a few…


Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
Not really. Depending on my mood (and how noisy my family is being!), I could be hanging out on the living room armchair or curled up in bed with the door shut.

Bookmark or random piece of paper?

Take a guess! Although, desperate times call for desperate measures, so I have occasionally used a bus ticket…

I’ve customised two of the bookmarks in this photo myself; if you’d like to learn how, take a look here!

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?
Unless the story is really gripping, I can generally stop reading anywhere.

Do you eat or drink whilst reading?
I can’t! Either I eat/drink too much and neglect my book, or I get too engrossed in the story and the food/drink gets cold.

Multitasking: Music or TV whilst reading?
Nope. I need quiet while I read.

One book at a time or several?
Depends on the book(s). In the past, I’ve read multiple books together for my course, which prevented me from getting too bogged down in books I didn’t particularly enjoy. But if I’m reading something I really like, I prefer to focus on that entirely.

Reading at home or everywhere?
Whilst I do like reading on trains/planes, I would ultimately choose home.

Read out loud or silently in your head?
Usually I read silently, unless I’m having trouble concentrating.

Do you read ahead or skip pages?
I never skip pages, and I try not to read ahead! But when I was a kid I used to read the last page first, for some reason…

Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I would never break the spine on purpose, but I don’t mind a bit of wear. I actually like cracked spines on old books especially.

Do you write in your books?
Only if I’m reading them as part of my course…

And that’s the end of the tag! If you’ve read this far and are occasionally found with a book in your hand, I tag you to answer as many or few of these questions as you like.

This was quite fun to work on, so I hope you enjoyed reading it! Recently, I’ve been thinking about establishing a posting schedule: a longer post on Mondays, Weekly Photo Challenges on Wednesdays, and Friday Fictioneers on Fridays. This leaves me the weekend for any shorter, fun posts like this that I might want to publish, which I’ve decided to make into a series called Sleepy Sunday. Thank you for reading, and I hope to see you again soon!
