Hey dolls! Another Monday, another book tag! I was tagged for this one a millennium ago by the beautiful Maria from Bookgraphy! With my homework load gradually escalating, it isn’t too practical to be squandering my time reading and blogging, yet here I am! I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to answer these lovely questions! If you don’t already follow Maria, I highly recommend you do so! She’s the sweetest pea ever, and always posts the best stuff!
How Many Books Do You Usually Read At Once?
The number always varies, but I often find myself reading merely one or two at a time- two being one physical copy and one e-book. To me, a book is no different than a movie in the sense that I prefer finishing a story without any interruptions. I wouldn’t watch only half a movie, pause it, and start another. However, I have broken this rule a few times before if I truly can’t wait to pick up my next read!
How Do You Decide When To Switch Between Multiple Reads?
This explanation is far simpler than you would think – whatever my mood indicates! At night, I only read e-books, so this can also be a deciding factor. If reasons prevent me from finding or having a certain book on hand, than that can be another reason for switching between my reads. And, of course, if I’m following a reading schedule, I’ll read a different novel after I’ve finished reading the designated number of pages for that day.
Do You Ever Switch Bookmarks Partway Through A Book?
Considering how the vast majority of the time, my bookmark consists of old receipts and napkins, yes. I switch them out as soon as I can find a proper bookmark!
Where Do You Keep the Book(s) You’re Currently Reading?
I tend to keep my Kindle on my nightstand, and will put the physical books I”m currently reading, on the top shelf of my bookcase. Of course, if I’m reading them that very second, I’ll keep them in my backpack or a table close by.
What Time Of Day Do You Read The Most?
I’m definitely a night owl! I do at least eighty percent of my reading at night.
How Long Do You Typically Read In One Session?
I prefer reading as much as I can in a single session, but since I usually have multiple engagements throughout the day, most of my reading sessions during the day, are only an hour or less. Although, I can read up to three hours at night if a book is truly engaging!
Do You Read Hardbacks With the Dust Jacket Off?
Absolutely! I used to always leave it on while reading, but I’m terrified to death of ripping it now – I may or may not had accidentally destroyed a dust jacket before. It also feels more comfortable in my hand without the jacket.
What Position Do You Mainly Use To Read?
Either lying down on my back, with a few pillows propping me up, or lying on my stomach. As you can see, I’m not a huge fan of sitting. Haha.
Do You Take Your Current Read With You Everywhere You Go?
It depends on the situation and the space in my bag, but if it’s an e-book, yes! I lug my Kindle with my everywhere I go. That device is honestly one of the most brilliant investments I’ve ever made.
How often Do You Update Your Goodreads Reading Progress?
I try to update it as much as I can, but I usually won’t update it more than four or five times for the duration of the read. Oops! I wish I would update it more, but when I’m absorbed in a story, updating my progress doesn’t even cross my mind.
