The Reading TAG

I was tagged in a, well tag, for the first time in agggess and I was quite surprised when it was the reading tag. I love reading but didn't think I really said much about it for people to know I like reading though I suppose my 'bed and book' tweets would be a hint. 
Anyways, thank you as always Miss Leona for tagging me! 

Do you have a certain place for reading at home?
Not really right now but once we move at the end of this month I do! I'll show you all in due course..! 

Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Don't judge me, but I just fold the top of the page! Ahh I know, slapped wrists but I end up just dropping bookmarks out of the book and then loosing my page.

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter or a certain number of pages?
I have to usually finish the chapter, but if I'm being rushed I have to do a certain number of pages haha...who can just stop reading?! What a strange concept. :P

Do you eat or drink when reading?
Not really because right now I read the majority of the time in bed and I don't eat in bed. Maybe I'll have my cup of juice or something but nothing in particular. 

One book at a time or several at once?
One at a time. My brain hasn't the capacity to remember all those different story lines, especially when we watch shows and movies and stuff too!

Reading at home or everywhere?
I prefer at home, or even by the pool on holiday but I haven't been abroad on holiday since 2008. I can't read on a bus or public transport as it gives me travel sickness and I'm scared I'll miss my stop.

Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Silently in my head - always. How annoying would reading aloud be?!

Do you ever read ahead or skip pages?

Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
I like to keep it 'new' but when certain people borrow your books and bend the cover backwards there's no going back.

Do you ever write in books?
Oh no! BUT I'm embarrassed and annoyed to say that one of my first edition Harry Potter books has my pre-teen scrawl of my name in the front cover. WHY?!

What are you currently reading?
Here's where all the proper serious readers laugh. I'm re-reading the full Harry Potter series for I think the 5th time and I'm on Goblet of Fire currently. I have a small collection of books, most of which a 'series', for example I have the full series by Ian Rankin and I also have alot of Mary Higgins Clarke books. If you have any suggestions (nothing disgusting like 50 shades, that isn't a book it's filth!) let me know!

Let me know if you have done or do this tag! Please always feel free to leave your links in the comments!


  1. I really want to re-read the HP series, but I don't think I can cope with lugging them all back up to uni with me, so it will just have to wait. I've read them all at least 5 times probably! I have a really long to read list at the moment.

    1. Aw no that would be rather heavy haha. See if you can find them online to read?!


  2. I really need to re-read the Harry Potter series - it's been way too long. And I'm with you - I have to finish a chapter before I put a book down - I'd get so confused otherwise!

    1. Exactly haha. Get them out and start reading! I could literally just read them in a loop :P


  3. It's been so long since I read Harry Potter!
