The Lost In A Book Tag

I’ve had this post in the making for a long time and actually can’t remember where I found it! I know that’s committing some sort of blogger sin! But anyway, on to the tag.

1. Do you have a specific place at home to read in?
I tend to read in the bath or in bed. Sometimes I’ll go in the bath just to read my book for an hour haha I try to read every night before bed.

2. Where do you like to read?
In the bath.

3. Do you use a bookmark or piece of paper?
If I’m reading an actual physical book (quite rare these days) then I use a bookmark.

4. Can you just stop reading or do you have to get to the end of the chapter?
I prefer to get to the end of a chapter. When reading on my Kindle it tells you in minutes how long a chapter will be. If I don’t think I can stay awake that long, then I won’t bother starting.

5. Do you eat or drink whilst reading?
Not usually

6. E-reader or real book?
Both have their advantages. I like that you can take lots of books anywhere with you on a Kindle. However, there are certain books I think need to be real books e.g. autobiographies with pictures in or large coffee table books

7. Music or television whilst reading?
I’ll have music on whilst I read but it tends to be classical otherwise I end up singing along and not actually reading.

8. One book at a time or several?
One at a time otherwise I’d just get confused.

9. Read at home or everywhere?
I tend to only read at home but I’ll take my Kindle on holiday or on long drives or if I know I might be waiting somewhere a while e.g. doctor’s surgery.

10. Reading aloud or silently?
Silently.

11. Fiction or non-fiction?
I tend to read a lot of fiction. The only non-fiction I tend to read is auto biographies, although I haven’t read one of those in a long time.

12. Do you read ahead or skip pages?
Never!

13. Break the spine or keep the book like new?
I don’t break the spine intentionally but they do end up breaking when you read books, especially thicker books.

14. Do you write in books?
No!

15. What is your favourite book?
Tricky! I really enjoyed The Light of the Fireflies by Paul Pen which I read last summer. The Harry Potter books will always be favourites too.

16. Do you buy books new or second-hand?
I tend to just buy for my Kindle so obviously they’re new but I have bought lots of books from charity shops.

  1. Ahh I love this. I’ve been reading a book since I can remember. As soon as I finish one I start another. I grew up in a very book-friendly family. My parents are always reading. I can listen to an audiobook and read a different book but I can’t read two books at the same time.
    My reading time is generally at dinner. It helps having a Kindle because it’s splash-proof 😉

  2. I love reading too- ever since I was little and I would get out books from the library each weekend and then spend ages reading them. I always read before I go to sleep. I sometimes skip pages if it is something gory (like the description of an autopsy in a crime book) because otherwise I get bad dreams!
