1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
It’s my dream to have a room dedicated especially to reading. A room where I can keep all my books with a reading nook. But for the time being, I usually just sprawl out on my bed. Otherwise, if the weather is nice I’ll sit outside on my porch on my daybed. But I’m usually just reading in bed, at work in my lunch break, or in my car before I go in to work.
2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?
I don’t have any real preference. I have plenty of bookmarks that I use on occasion, or I dog-ear the pages. I’m also a spine-breaker, so I generally just leave the book face down and open on a flat surface, haha.
3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?
I can stop, but I prefer to finish the chapter if I have the time.
4. Do you eat or drink while reading?
No, not really. Maybe I’ll have a can of Red Bull or something, but I generally eat at the table, or snack in front of the TV.
5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
No way. Only if I have no other option. I much prefer silence so I can lose myself in the pages.
6. One book at a time or several at once?
One book at a time. I don’t have any idea how people have multiple books on the go! Maybe non-fiction books could be okay, but fiction I like to dedicate my time to.
7. Reading at home or everywhere?
Everywhere! I’m not home very often because I work full-time and spend plenty of time with my partner, so I read whenever I get a spare moment.
8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?
9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
If I’m not enjoying a novel I’ll start skimming. I’ll just flick through the pages to get a general idea of what is happening. These novels are always 1-star reads for me because they can’t keep my attention.
10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
I break the spines, dog-ear the pages… readers are generally horrified when I say this! But I like my novels to look well loved.
11. Do you write in your books?
No really. It is actually something I think would look really awesome, but I have no idea what I’d write!
