1. How many books do you usually read at once?
Actually actively reading, usually 2-4. But it’s not uncommon for me to have up to 10 on my currently reading shelf. I often start books and come back to them months later.
2. If you’re reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch to reading the other book (do you read a certain amount of pages in each?)
I’m a mood reader (and I have a short attention span) so I pick a book and read it until I need a reading break. After that I’ll often move on to another book for awhile and repeat. I’m usually reading 1-2 ebooks and 2 physical books, sometimes with an audiobook thrown in as well.
3. Do you ever switch bookmarks while you’re part way through a book?
Not unless I lose the first one.
4. Where do you keep the book you’re currently reading?
I carry them around my apartment with me so that they’re always next to me when I have a break from whatever else I’m doing.
5. What time of day do you spend the most time reading?
I do most of my reading before bed. On the weekends I read before I get up in the morning.
6. How long do you typically read for in one go?
Not that long honestly. Usually half an hour to an hour. If I’m reading multiple books I can go for longer if I switch back and forth.
7. Do you read hard covers with the dust jacket on or off?
Always off. Not so much because I’m worried they’ll get damaged but because I hate how they slide around when I’m trying to read.
8. Which position do you mainly use to read?
Laying down or reclining
9. Do you take the book you’re currently reading with you everywhere you go?
That’s why I’m always reading ebooks in addition to my physical reads! I don’t like carrying physical books around and I read my ebooks on my phone so that’s much more convenient for me when I’m on the go. I do take physical books with me when I go to the gym though.
10. How often do you update your progress in the book you’re currently reading on goodreads?
Every 50 or so pages, or whatever I read in one sitting. For books that I’m struggling with, I update a lot more frequently.
11. Who would you like to tag?
I don’t like to tag specific people. Anyone who wants to complete the tag can do it!
How do YOU read books? Do you read more than one at a time like me, or do you stick to one book until you’re finished with it? If you do the tag, leave me a link in the comments 🙂
