Another tag, indeed! Now, as this has been sat in my drafts for a matter of months and I didn't include a link as to where I got it, I couldn't really tell you who tagged me or where I found it - apologies! If it was you feel free to tell me off on Twitter or something and I'll edit to credit you :)
On with the tag...
On with the tag...
Where do you like to read? In bed, as I said above but also when on holiday - like by the pool etc but I haven't been on a holiday like that for around 8 years.
Bookmark or random piece of paper? I'd like to say bookmark but I don't own any and it's not something I'd just go out and buy myself. I may actually have to make myself a proper one on my printer...I could even sell them in my store - all of the ideas are flooding to me now lol. Now don't get angry at me, but I don't use a piece of paper either. Eek. I'm really bad and turn the corner of the page over, which annoys myself but I turn the tinest bit that I can!
(edit - since writing up this post many months ago, I have actually acquired a beautiful faux leather bookmark from the WB studio tour!)
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop at a chapter? Usually I have to stop at the end of a chapter, but when reading in bed it just depends how long I can keep my eyes open for :P
Do you eat or drink whilst reading? Generally not, though I can do.
E-reader or real book? Real book!! This is a huge thing for me. I've never owned/used any kind of e-reader or tablet and although I obviously do spend a lot of time online what with blogging and such, I think certain things do not require technology to enjoy - especially reading. Not saying I don't think they are handy things for people, I'm just glad they are wiping out the printed word...plus I'm too scared I'd break it! Books look much more appealing lined up on a bookshelf too.
Music or TV while reading? Oh goodness no! I can multitask 'till the cows come home with stuff like housework and work on the laptop but things like reading a book I need 100% concentration.
One book at a time or several at once? See previous answer! Ha! If I were to read more than one at once I'd end up getting story lines crossed over and not be able to let my mind digest it, in the end taking more time to read them all than I would if I'd done it one at a time.
Reading at home or everywhere? Everywhere I guess. I'm quite looking forward to taking a book with me on the Eurostar later this year, though hopefully it won't make me motion sick as I can't read on a bus or in a car!
Reading aloud or silently in your head? Silently in my head. Again, for some reason I struggle to fully take it in when I read aloud.
Fiction or non-fiction? Both! I love a fantasy world though...
Do you read ahead or skip pages? :O Who does that?!
Break the spine or keep a book like new? Ask my Mam ;) haha As unbroken as possible please and if you borrow my books, like my Mam, and break them I'll not be best pleased. It's not always just as easy as to not crack the spine at all but people who literally bend it backwards on itself?...Just why?!
Do you write in your books? Again, negative. If you take a peek in the front covers of my Harry Potter books you'll see my name as I obviously got them when I was pretty young and apparently I was a fan of labeling anything I could with my name. But even with coursework and literature studying I would always use paper to take notes and never deface the book itself. It just feels wrong to me, I don't know how exactly but I just couldn't do it.
Your favourite book? Need you really ask?
