Winter Bayne did a post with questions on reading habits. I usually don’t like memes but I decided this one wasn’t too bad.. Here are my answers concerning reading habits.
Question #1: Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
Yes. I like reading on my bed using the headboard and pillows to support my back. Every once in a while I’ll read at the kitchen table too. When I usually read is late at night. Reading is relaxing for me so that falling asleep comes a little quicker.
Question #2: Bookmark or a random piece of paper?
Actually neither. I have a slue of post-it squares in all sorts of colors. I pick my color of the moment, fold the square in half and stick it in the book.
Question #3: Can you stop reading anytime you want or do you have to stop at a certain page, chapter, part, etc.?
I can stop almost any place as long as it’s at the beginning of a paragraph. Still, I prefer to read by scene or chapter.
Question #4: Do you eat or drink while reading?
I’m notorious for snacking on cereal (Cheerios) or grapes while I read.
Question #6: One book at a time, or several at once?
One book at a time. I just know I’d get too confused otherwise.
Question #7: Reading at home or everywhere?
Typical I just read at home, although if I go with Hubby to the VA hospital for one of his many appointments, I won’t forget to take a book with me.
Question #8: Reading out loud or silently in your head?
It’s all in my head. I have read out loud to my son when he was small but every time I did, I’d get the yawns.
Question #9: Do you read ahead or skip pages?
I will skip over long narratives that have very little if anything to do with the plot of the story.
Question #10: Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
I’m one of those terrible people who break the binding. I wish I could keep my books looking new but if I want to read them, the binding must be broken because of my disability. I can’t hold a book with two hands. Only one hand works.
Question #11: Do you write in books?
I have in text books in college but that’s it. Even with my Kindle, I like to keep the pages clean and new-looking as much as possible.
