I haven’t done a tag in a minute so I decided why not do one now? I kind of in between books and watching a playthrough of Amnesia (which, by the way, is NOT living up to the scariness that it’s been hyped up to have. Either that or I need to find another playthrough) and I really wanted to do some blog posts.
I don’t think I was tagged in this but it looks fun so I’m going to do anyway. Props to the creator!
Can you stop reading at any time, or does it have to be a certain page or chapter?
I can stop whenever really. I prefer to stop at the end of a chapter so I know where I am but that doesn’t always happen.
Do you eat or drink anything whilst reading?
I usually have a soda or an energy drink on hand. I eat snacks sometimes while I read but not like a full course dinner.
Can you read listening to music or watching TV?
I used to be able to listen to music while reading but I got too distracted. Now I have Forensic Files on in the background while I read.
One book at a time, or several at once?
Depends. Sometimes I will have multiples but usually I don’t.
Reading at home or everywhere?
I can read at home but sometimes it’s distracting. I read at work usually.
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Silently in my head.
Do you read ahead, or skip pages?
No…I try not too anyway.
Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
I’m always breaking the spines. I don’t know how to not do that.
Do you write books, or just read them?
Read but I’m kind of sort of writing a thing that may or may not be something.
