The Reading Habits Tag

Hello everyone! I saw this tag post on What Lauren Did Today and I absolutely loved it. I'd been planning on writing a post about my reading habits anyway so when I discovered that there was actually a tag I decided I'd just do this instead! I can be quite fussy about reading, I know what I like and what I dislike. For example it really bugs me if someone's book shelves aren't arranged alphabetically by the author's last name!

1. Do you have a certain place for reading at home?
I always just read in my bed!

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?
I bought this really awesome bookmark from The Book Depository but before that I normally just used paper!

3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter or a certain number of pages?
If I get interrupted then I can stop reading whenever but if I'm choosing to stop reading then I like to do it after a chapter.

4. Do you eat or drink when reading?
I'll eat snacks and stuff but I can't eat a proper meal whilst reading, I need my hands to hold the book!

5. Do you watch TV or listen to music whilst reading?
No. I don't mind if someone else is but its just not something I choose to do by myself.

6. One book at a time or several at once?
I try to read only one book at a time but if I'm not really enjoying a book then I'll start another one and then go back to it when I'm finished. Often I find myself reading one book on my Kindle and one phsyical book at once.

7. Reading at home or everywhere?
I can literally read any where over any noise!

8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Always reading silently in my head, reading out loud gives me a sore throat.

9. Do you ever read ahead or skip pages?
Nope. I do sort of skim read through if it's a book that I'm not really enjoying, just to get through the pages!

10. Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
I try not to break the spine of a book but often when they're big books then it can't be helped!

11. Do you write in your books?
I don't really 'write' in my books but I'll highlight, under line or bracket bits that I really like. I don't do this often, only for quotes that I find really poignant.

12. What are you currently reading?
At the moment I'm currenlty reading How I Killed Pluto And Why It Had It Coming by Mike Brown but I'm scheduling this post so who knows what I'll actually be reading when it actually goes up! If you'd like to keep up to date with what I'm reading then you can add me as a friend on GoodReads here.

I don't want to tag anyone specifically so if you fancy doing this tag then feel free!
