Currently Reading Book Tag

Hey, lovelies! I was tagged by Rhea @bookchantedblog, please check out her blog because it’s really cute and her reviews/posts are amazing!

Let’s see the questions that are related to my reading routine. You’ll want to read it if you want to see how chaotic I get when I’m reading.

 

1. HOW MANY BOOKS DO YOU USUALLY READ AT ONCE?

It depends. I usually only read a book at once, you can see me having many books on my currently-reading shelf on GR, but usually my full attention is on one of those books. The others are just started and I’ve lost my interest in the meantime or something like this.

 

2. IF YOU’RE READING MORE THAN ONE BOOK AT A TIME, HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHEN TO SWITCH BOOKS?

Like I’ve said before, it’s a matter of which one grips my interest the most. I might start by reading 2-3 books at once and then one of them (depends on which one I enjoy the most) will have my entire attention.

 

3. DO YOU EVER SWITCH BOOKMARKS WHILE YOU’RE PARTWAY THROUGH A BOOK?

Yeah, it happens. I might not find my bookmark and get another one or something like this. I’m not very careful with my bookmarks, to be honest. I’ve lost at least two. Once, I forgot one of them in a book from library (but I got it back, yaaay!).

 

4. WHERE DO YOU KEEP THE BOOK(S) YOU’RE CURRENTLY READING?

Near my bed. Usually on a desk or even somewhere on my pillow. I’ve been known to fall asleep next to books because they are my only love and you have to keep your love close. HAHAHAHAHA. I say such idiotic stuff and then I wonder why I am still single.

 

5. WHAT TIME OF DAY DO YOU SPEND THE MOST TIME READING?

I spend my every waking hour reading or thinking about reading. It’s not a drill. It’s been taking over my life for years now. It’s real. I think everyone is worried about me by this point. But my reading is the most productive during nighttime because I’m a night owl and I love to stay up late (3 a.m. – 4 a.m.) to read.

 

6. HOW LONG DO YOU TYPICALLY READ IN ONE SETTING?

It depends. If I love the book very much and it’s fast-paced, I’ll read it in one sitting. But sometimes, huge books or books that are from genres I don’t usually reach for (like high fantasy) will take longer and I will read around 50 pages at a time.

 

7. DO YOU READ HARDBACKS WITH THE DUST JACKET ON OR OFF?

Again, it depends on the situation and on my mood. Sometimes, I feel like the dust jacket is getting in my way and I’ll take it off, sometimes I enjoy the way the book looks with the dust jacket too much to take it off.

 

8. WHAT POSITION DO YOU MAINLY USE TO READ?

Laying in bed. All day. I’m such a lazy ass. I hate the fact that holding books all day isn’t considered a work-out and doesn’t help me becoming more fit. Because I’m struggling, you know? It should be taken seriously!

 

9. DO YOU TAKE THE BOOK YOU’RE CURRENTLY READING WITH YOU EVERYWHERE?

Not everywhere. I take it everywhere I’m going while I’m inside. But not outside because I don’t trust people around my books and I don’t want to damage them in any way.

 

10. HOW OFTEN DO YOU UPDATE YOUR GOODREADS PROGRESS ON THE BOOK YOU’RE CURRENTLY READING?

Usually three – four times, I only do it more frequently if I have a lot of feelings.

 

I’m not going to tag anyone for this one, but whoever wants to do it can consider themselves tagged by me!

What are some of your bookish habits? Do you read books in one sitting?

      Thank you very much!! You can consider yourself tagged, then! Also mention me in your post, so that I can check out your answers! ❤ YAAAY, I'm so happy to find other people who snuggle with books, they are my only true love!

      Yes, I feel the thing that doesn’t let me read in one sitting is the fact that I know I should be doing other things – like study. And I get guilty and stop reading and try to do something productive, but stop pretty soon afterwards. Hahaha! 🙂

      Thank you!! ❤ Same here, I find myself struggling more and more since starting this blog and becoming more active on Twitter to read in one sitting, though. I get distracted often. 😦
      Also, I edited your comment! 🙂

      Same here! It’s so much easier to read two books at a time – one on your Kindle/phone and one in physical format – as you can easily switch from one to another. I need this very much at my dorm as I still want to read after my roommate wants to turn off the lights.

    Definitely stealing this later! I have a really hard time reading books in small pieces, so most of the time I finish in 1-3 sittings, depending on the length of the book. Once I start, I can’t stop!

    What a fun tag! I loved reading your answers 🙂 I dont usually read more than one book at a time, I like to have my full attention on one book, haha. I… don’t update goodreads while I read, but it’s mainly because I forget to, haha. 🙂

      Thank youuu, Mariee! ❤ Same here, it's very difficult for me to focus on more than two books at a time, especially if the books are from the same genre or very similar because I would start mixing things up.
      Hahahaha, this never happened to me before as I used GR the most, but now I usually review everything on the blog and use GR less frequently – so, yes, I forget a lot too!

    I usually read 2-4 books at once! Sometimes more. It’s kind of like changing the TV channel for me 🙂

    It’s not idiotic about the sleeping bit xD we often sleep the three os us lol – me, my boyfriend and my kindle :DDD not kidding! Sometimes when I’m done reading it’s just too far to reach to put it away…

    The dust jacket is a constant problem. Don’t you just hate how they start flapping about xD

      Hahaha, that sounds great! ❤ I never can pull it off, I usually read 2 books – one in physical format and the other on my Kindle/phone. But not more than that because I end up not finishing any of them.
      Hahaha, that's sooo funny! You're lucky that he's okay with your bookish obsession, I always feel like I would be fortunate to find someone to understand my bookish habits and be okay with them.
      Hahaha, yeah, thankfully I only have two or three books with dust jackets. But I struggle with them when I borrow books from library.

    Very nice answers. And Marta, I’ll just say that I’ve been known to say idiotic stuff like that myself, and I had accepted that I would probably end up a single lady with a massive personal library. But then I found a guy who finds my idiotic book fangirl and nerdy comments to be utterly adorable.

    Love your answers, I see so many similar things I do. One thing I don’t do though is update my reading progress on goodreads, I’m just lazy haha.
