I know it’s been a while since you were blessed with a tag post on my blog so, me being the generous person I am, I decided that it’s about time. Also, um, I have a huge backlash of tags. And I don’t mean huge in the normal sense. Huge in the sense that I could do tags for a year on this blog and still not run out… So yeah.
Today we have a short and sweet tag on the blog for which I was tagged by my wonderful friend Tanvi @A Reader To Whatever End who by the way is a pro at book tags so go check out her pretty little blog. Thank you so much for tagging me Tanvi 🙂
1. How many books do you usually read at once?
I like to go wild and read as many books as I can at the same time. I’ve never gone over 5 books at a time but it’s usually 2-3 books at a time. I love to have books of different genres among these so that if one book gets too heavy I can shift onto the next one for a while. The downside of this can be that sometimes I end up completely ignoring a book and keep reading other books.
2. How do you decide to switch between multiple reads?
Like I just said above, I switch between different genres. Also sometimes I’ll try to read the same amount for all the books I’m reading. For example, if I’m reading two books at a time and get in 200 pages on one but only a 100 on the other I’ll drop everything and try to get to 200 pages on both books because I don’t want any of the books to feel left out…
3. Do you ever switch bookmarks partway through a book?
Maybe sometimes? If I feel that the bookmark is sticking too much out or just doesn’t match the vibe of the book I might swap it out. And well this one time I accidentally had 3 bookmarks in one book so I kept switching them around.
4. Where do you keep the book(s) you’re currently reading?
When reading e-books they’re just lying there in my e-reading app but when it comes to physical copies my books take the entire tour of the house and wherever the hell I go. I tend to take the book with me everywhere so it could legit be in any corner of the house. If I’m reading multiple physical copies they’ll rarely be found together, probably in opposite corners of the house.
5. What time of the day do you read the most?
Okay, I had to think really hard for this one. My reading is pretty scattered and while most people tend to read more at night I’m the opposite. During school days I read between periods and in free periods plus in the evening when I come back home. But now that I’m enjoying my holidays I tend to either stick to evenings or start a book in the morning and just stay glued to it until I’m finished.
6. How long do you typically read in one session?
It varies a lot, mostly depending on how much time I have, how many times I get interrupted and whether the book is gripping or not. These days I would say I’ve been reading an average of an hour in a single sitting.
7. Do you read hardbacks with the dust jackets off?
Hell yes! I absolutely refuse to deal with annoying dust jackets, they go off the moment I pick up the book. They can just so easily get torn or bent and keep sliding off when you’re reading -_-
8. What position do you mainly use to read?
I can never get the perfect comfortable position but usually, I read lying on the bed on my side and just keep shifting on my sides. It’s a full workout for both my arms.
9. Do you take your current read with you everywhere you go?
Yup, almost everywhere. I mean I would love to take it to stupid weddings and parties I’m forced to attend but I’m pretty sure my parents would have my head for that.
10. How often do you update your Goodreads reading progress?
I have a horrible memory and I’m too lazy to update my Goodreads especially when I’m engrossed in a book. I usually just add a book to my ‘currently reading’ shelf and then update it when I’m finished but sometimes I forget to even do that and end up adding the book when I’ve finished it and moved on to the next book…
I’m going to tag:
Simant @Flipping Thru Pages
Clo @Cuppa Clo
Sam @Fictionally Sam
Sahi @My World Of Books
So, which book are you currently reading?
If you read more than one book at a time do you keep them in different genres or formats?
Do any of my book reading habits match with yours or am I just a weirdo?
