Book Tag

I was tagged by Melissa @ Ever So Mela.
Thank you so much! :P

1. Do you have a specific place for reading?

I have two specific places for reading one is at home in my bed. Nice and comfortable there. The other is at work sitting at the desk. There is a lot of downtime working overnight so I can enjoy reading while working.

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

I prefer a book mark I mean I buy bookmarks specifically for that reason to use. But every once in a while I will find myself with a book and nothing to use so then I will use a random piece of paper but for the most part I usually have a bookmark.

3. Can you stop anywhere in a book or do you have to finish a chapter?

I don't like these either or questions since I seem to do both of them. I most of the time will try to stop at the end of a chapter but there are times like at work or when they leave cliff hanger ending on the end of chapters that I will just stop anywhere. Then there are some books where a chapter is like a billion pages long, those I stop in the middle as well.

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?

I don't usually eat while reading since I don't like getting anything on my books or on the screen if I am reading on an electronic devise. I will drink while reading though.

5. Music or T.V. while reading?

Just no to both! I have a hard time concentrating on reading especially if something interesting is on T.V. or if a good song comes on. I had to do this recently on a car ride listen to music and read and lets just say I would have gotten a whole lot more read if there was complete silence. I mean its irritating when you have to read the same paragraph over 10 times because you can't comprehend what you are reading and sing the lyrics to the song in your head at the same time.

6. One book at a time or several?

I do both. Most of the time I try to stick with just one book but then there are those times when I am reading several at a time either because one isn't holding my attention or because I am doing buddy reads or because I am reading one huge book and the other one is smaller that I read in between.

7. Reading at home or elsewhere?

I of course prefer reading at home but I can and do constantly read other places like at work. It's to bad I just can't stay at home and read all day and all night long. :(

8. Reading out loud or silently?

I like to read silently unless if something is distracting me like music then I might read out loud if I can't get past a certain paragraph or what not. I will also some times read Aesop Fables aloud to my boyfriend since we are trying to read through it together.

9. Do you read ahead or skip pages?

I try so hard to not read a head, but some times when I am looking at how many pages I have left in a chapter or how many left in the rest of the book I see the ending of the book or the beginning of the next chapter and skim it and ruin something for myself. But I never skip reading pages I might skim a boring part but that is about it.

10. Breaking the spine or reading it like new?

I used to not really care about spines but now I try so hard to not break the spines or hurt the books in any way. So that they last longer, I have a book where it is an 800 page book so its a pretty big paper back and since I had it when I wasn't worried about spines its broken and now since I have read it many times it feels like it will fall apart some day soon if I keep reading it. :( Good think I found a cheap hardback cover of this book and now don't have to worry about it but yea now I try to read all my books like new.

11. Do you write in your books?

No never! Unless if its meant for that. Like puzzle books or wreck it journal or something like that.

12. Who are you tagging?

You! You know you want to.


  1. Great tag! Loved the answers to your questions. I try my BEST to finish a chapter before stopping, but it can be tough if the chapters are long. But I have been known to put my husband off when he is talking to me so I can finish a chapter. Ha

    1. Thanks. I have done the same my boyfriend will be talking and I will just be like shhh one more page. You can't just interrupt someone in the middle of a page.
