Sorry I was gone so long… Forgiveses? Again?
I’m coming back with this post because, unfortunately, it might be a while before the next one comes.
I’m considering posting twice within these few days because I’d like to leave you guys with bit more material to read before I go on an, admittedly, longer hiatus. *heh, heh*
Here’s the explanation: I’ve got a really busy next few (haha few, no, it’s quite a few months) ahead of me, so I won’t have any time to post. At all, basically. Honestly, I’m not expecting to get much sleep from now on.
*whispers* (AKA I’ve got loads and loads of schoolwork coming my way. LOADS.)
However, moving on to something much more positive, I’ll be sure to post once the holidays arrive! (AKA Thanksgiving + the many holidays that occur in December.)
I am also planning on changing the theme (no worries—only temporarily this time! 😅 ) into something festive when the time comes, so there’s also that to look forward to. 🙂
Now, that’s enough explaining (aka me babbling a lot), so let’s actually get to the tag.
1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
As I’ve mentioned before, this answer is a bit boring (ahh please don’t abandon me just yet), as I normally just read at the table (come on, it’s comfortable and I don’t have to strain my neck or back), or my wonderful, wonderful bed.
2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Mmm… Depends. I used to use random pieces of paper or post-its, but since I’ve got a collection of bookmarks now, I just use those. (Though when I’m feeling lazy it’s just -*whoosh* *swipes random paper from table*.)
3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/a certain amount of pages?
Normally I just stop reading. I mean, I don’t want to set a certain amount for myself to read up to. Reading is usually for leisure, so I don’t want to put any pressure on myself to read a specific number of pages.
4. Do you eat or drink while reading?
Mhm. Definitely. It *enhances the reading experience*.
5. Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
I listen to music when I read. For some reason, sometimes I feel like I have to be doing two things at once. That’s how my book playlists form. The music I listen to while reading that book is the music that creates the playlist for the book.
In a way, music helps me become absorbed in a book. Anyone? Anyone? No one? Okay…
6. One book at a time or several at once?
I don’t do it intentionally—I swear! Somehow I just always end up reading multiple books at once.
7. Reading at home or anywhere?
Anywhere. Including restaurants when waiting for the food to arrive. See, most people get annoyed when they have to wait a long time for food, but I just see it as more time for me to read. 😊
8. Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Silently in my head, of course. Unless I’m reading to someone else. I have discovered that reading out loud takes a significantly looonger amount of time.
9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
I suppose you could say I read ahead a bit because sometimes when I’m getting info-dumped I get bored and skim the giant paragraphs (sometimes I skip one or two paragraphs altogether). Or, if I’m not really interested in a book I skim and skip over pages until I reach the interesting parts. Heh. Heh.
10. Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
As much as I want to keep the spine new, I always end up breaking it, so I’ve given up on that dream and just accepted it.
11. Do you write in your books?
Nope. Only post-its, or nothing. Plus, there’s something really satisfying about seeing and feeling the post-its sticking out from the pages. (Or is that just me…? 😅 )
12. Who do you tag?
P.S. I’m trying out inserting a feather in between every question for my tag posts. Yes? No? Too much? Feedback would be wonderful!
