I saw this on Thrice Read yesterday, and thought I haven’t done a book tag in awhile so why not? So if you are like me, and a lover of book tags, do this one and let me know that you did so that I can check out your answers!
How many books do you usually read at once?
Typically, I will read about 2-3 books at one time.
If you’re reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch books?
I’ll either read 1-2 books from my ever growing TBR shelf that I have in my office closet (because I ran out of shelf space in the office #sorrynotsorry), and a book on my Kindle. Most times it just depends on where I am or how much time I have in between things to pick which type of book format I’ll read. If my husband is complaining about the light, then I’ll most likely switch to my Kindle book. I think my Kindle TBR shelf is a little out of hand, I have so many eArcs that I need to read and review it is a little crazy!
Do you ever switch bookmarks while you’re partway through a book?
Sometimes, but not very much. I never really use the same bookmark right after each other. Normally, I will just grab whatever is closest when I start a new book and then I will use that one for the entire reading time.
Where do you keep the book(s) you’re currently reading?
Where do I not keep them? LOL. My iPad is either right beside me or on my night stand, and the book I am currently reading I will carry everywhere around the house.
What time of day do you spend the most time reading?
It used to be right before bed, but now I have somewhat of a more flexible schedule thanks to maternity leave. I will read whenever baby Sophia is taking a nap (if I am not catching up on chores around the house or running errands).
How long do you typically read in one sitting?
This is a hard question. Some reading sessions will be an hour or two, and others are about 10-20 minutes. It really just depends on what the baby is doing or wanting at that particular time.
Do you read hardbacks with the dust jacket on or off?
Definitely off. I am particular with my dust jackets and I don’t like them to get torn or messed up. I also take them off when lending them to other people, because lets be honest you never know how they will treat your book!
What position do you mainly use to read?
Laying down on the bed, or lounging on the couch.
Do you take the book you’re currently reading with you everywhere you go?
Depends on where I am going. If I know there will be a long waiting period then yes, if I am just running errands around town then no.
How often do you update your Goodreads progress on the book you’re currently reading?
Religiously. I love seeing the status bar move, it makes me feel accomplished. Although I am currently almost 20 books behind schedule for the year…oops.
