Reading Habits Tag

I found this tag on inspiredbythepage (where I coincidentally also found the Reader Problems Tag) which it was originally created by The BookJazz, and I thought it would be fun to do. So here we go!

1. Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

I tried, but nope, I don’t. I like having things organized and stuff, but having one specific place for reading just ain’t working for me. I read everywhere (except the bathroom, of course); my window seat in my bedroom, at my desk, on my bed, in my sister’s room, the guest room, the kitchen. I often read while eating too, which is when my eReader comes in handy since I don’t want to bend a book too much or get it dirty. 🙂 Although I’ve mostly perfected those little complications.

2. Bookmark or random piece of paper?

Random piece of paper, all the way! I tried a few times to keep a bookmark, but it ended up being misplaced or unused or something along those lines. Mostly I just keep them safely on my shelf. I usually can find a piece of paper lying around somewhere, so when I have to stop reading, and I can’t find my bookmark or whatnot, I’m just like, “Whatever, I’ll use this ripped piece of paper instead.” 😉 I had to use a candy wrapper several times too, since I couldn’t find my bookmark!

3. Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?

I’ve gotten better at just stopping reading (especially when I was reading in class ;)), but usually I prefer to stop after a chapter, or when a particularly entertaining or action-filled scene kind of cools down. Often though I end up stopping at a few more chapters than planned… I just can’t help it, when I’m especially immersed into a book! “Just this chapter… a few more pages… a few more pages… a few more pages… oh, I can just finish another chapter, then I’ll go…just another chapter… and another…” 😉
