Currently Reading TAG


1. How many books do you read at the same time?
It varies all the time. I used to be the person who read just one book at a time, but I can't do that anymore. Because sometimes I come over a book that just isn't right for that moment, and if I would try to read it till the end anyway, I would probably get stuck in a reading slump. So I rather pick up another book, and after a while I get back to the first one...

2. If you read more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch between them?
I usually decide what to read according to my mood at the moment. But sometimes it also depends on other extrenal influences. For example, if I am going to read outside, I rather pick up a paperback than hardback...

3. Are you switching bookmarks underway for a book?
No, I don't do that. I have so many bookmarks that there's no need for it. Habitually, I choose a bookmark that fits to a book, and put it into it before I even start to read. So I usually have as many bookmarks in use as many books I read at a time...

4. Where do you keep books that you are reading currently?
Either on the table beside my bed or in a bookshelf in front of the row of a books. That way I can see whether the pile isn't growing too high. So I can focus on finishing all the books before picking up another one...

5. What time a day do you usually read?
It depends if I am at work or at home. During the week days, I usually read in the morning on my way to work, during the lunch break, and sometimes also on my way back home. And when I have a day off, I read whenever during the whole day. But ironically, I usually read more during the week because it's easier to concentrate for it. When I am at home, I have loads of other things to do that keep me from it...

6. How long do you typically read a book at a time?
I can easily get distracted, so I can't say that I usually read like one hour or so. When I am lucky enough, I read half an hour straight. But more typically, I read one or two chapters before getting up to go to hang clothes up to dry or something...

7. Do you read bound books with or without dust jacket?
I found reading a book with a dust jacket really annoying because it always slides away and it doesn't feel nice on my fingers (especially the shiny one). So I usually take it off even though it means that the book looks plain during the reading...

8. In what position do you read most of the time?
If I am not in the park or in a café, I always read lying on my back with lots of pillows stuff under my head. Also, I can't read without a blanket because I always end up shivering with cold...

9. Do you take reading material with yourself when you are heading out?
Always!

10. How often do you update your status on Goodreads while reading a book?
Well, I don't really do that when I am reading a book. I am happy enough if I can remember to put there the books I've read already. But I try to keep up on the Instagram...

  1. I am so glad I've found a reader who gets distracted, too! I also can't really pay attention, usually not for more than two hours. Makes being a bookworm a bit difficult, doesn't it. ^-^ An interesting tag. :)

    1. Oh, yeah, it definitely does. But then again, we are just human beings, right? :-) Thank you for your lovely comment...
