Book Tag – The Reading Habits Book Tag

I was tagged by Mark Jayson Balas of bongbongbooks for this book tag long back but couldn’t finish this task . Better late than never, I guess. So lets begin with questions.

1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

Yes, my Bedroom where my study table is. I mostly read in my bedroom. Sometimes I read just before sleeping ,so my bed is second spot where I read in my bedroom. 

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

Bookmarks. mostly! I do own few bookmarks,the metal ones and paper ones too. I do carry a bookmark whenever i am carrying a book. 

3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?

I like to stop when a chapter finishes rather than on random pages. This also works for short stories well, so I am very particular about it. It’s easier to remember where you last stopped in the story. In rare occasions when I stop reading in between chapters , I start with re- reading that chapter.

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?

Sometimes. I am one of those people who are super clean while eating, so I am not worried about my books getting dirtier.

once my friend borrowed a book and returned it with yellow food stains. I am yet to forgive her for that.

5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?

Music is good company but tv is distraction. 

6. One book at a time or several at once?

There was a time when I couldn’t read more than one at a time, but presently, I am reading 4.

7. Reading at home or everywhere?

I read when at home,office and while travelling. I do carry a book along most of the times,unless I am going out with friends and family.

8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?

Silently of course.

9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?

I do skip pages if the book is boring or the plot is getting typical. 

10. Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?

Why is this even a question?

Preserving it like a new copy all the way! As I mentioned earlier, I am a super clean person, I wrap books in plastic after I am done reading so they remain brand new always.

11. Do you write in your books?

I don’t write, but yes if I find a beautiful quote or if a line strucks me I highlight it.

12. Who do you tag?

I hardly have blogger friends,so I am gonna tag few friends who also blog.

Here’s the list of wonderful people I tag.

Pls, do tag me once you are done answering the questions, i’d love to read them.

Busy Me!

Last few weeks I have been very busy with festivals, my Scriptwriting classes, writing my first script, working on some other stories, and what not.  Phew!!

My blog suffered because of that. May be I knew this, that’s why I stopped taking up book review requests two months back. (once a planner, always a planner). 

Even December seems busy. The holiday season is here and so is wedding season . I am hoping to post a few blog post(if I find time in between my travel) that I have in my mind, also I want make few changes on the blog.

I really really hope I get time to read.

*Fingers crossed *
