Hey, dolls! It would be a lie of the greatest magnitude if I said I had no bad reading habits. I honestly feel like I possess more bad than good habits. I was tagged for this by the amazing Orangutan Librarian many moons ago. Here are a *few* of my bad reading habits! Perhaps you all might relate to a couple of them!
Bad Habit #1 | Book Hoarding
Is it normal to have over 200 books on your Kindle that you haven’t read, in addition to around 75 physical copies you need to get to? I can’t help it when I meander through a used bookstore and uncover so many inexpensive books! As far as e-books are concerned, Amazon deals will be the death of me. I swear, I probably purchase every digital YA book that happens to have a reduced price.
Bad Habit #2 | TBR’s Are A Foreign Concept To Me
I don’t typically make strict tbr’s, but they are quite nonexistent in my mind. There is always a handful of novels that I tell myself I will read soon, but I more often than not, forget about them, and wind up reading whatever new release has captured my attention. My mind tends to wander at 75 mph. I simply can’t help being interested in anything and everything out there! Yes, this is my paltry excuse.
Bad Habit #3 | Oh, Series Are Meant To Be Finished?
Bad Habit #4 | Cover Judging
I judge books by their cover all the time. It’s a consistent pattern of mine to read books with stunning covers. I truly have to tip my hat off to publishing companies and cover artists who make some artwork irresistible. If I wind up being disappointed in the process, at least, I still have a gorgeous cover on my shelves. Hehe.
Bad Habit #5 | Skim Reading Uneventful Sections
Ah! This is possibly the worst reading habit I have, but if a plot drags and I’m not particularly interesting in the characters or their relationships, I’ll likely skim read until something exciting occurs. I don’t do this too often, but if I’m reading a book and it begins to feel like a chore, I want to accelerate to the more momentous occasions.
That’s all folks! If you haven’t done this tag before and want to do it, I tag you! Do you have any of these habits as well! What are some bad reading habits you have? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for reading!Instagram | Twitter | Goodreads | Bloglovin
