Feature: The Reading Habits Book Tag

 I don't usually do these things on my blog, more for the lack of time than anything else, but having seen a few of them I thought as I had a spare afternoon I would join in.

I haven't been tagged by anyone, ( unless you call being nagged by Aggie and Hayley on twitter!!!) and I won't be tagging it on but if you see this feel free to join in.

You can check out Aggie and Hayley's answers by clicking on their names.

Do you have a certain place at home for reading?

Not particularly, it depends on my mood and whether it's an ebook or physical copy. That said, I adore my chair and will be found curled up reading in that most of the time!

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop at the chapter/ certain part of the book?
I'm always interrupted when I'm reading, either by my other half or the phone or that little thing called social media! I've become quite good at memorising where on the page I am haha! 
However... Interruptions are one thing, stopping is another and I always have to leave the book at the end of the chapter!

Multitasking: Music or TV whilst reading?
Music yes - but it has to be as background music so fairly low volume.
I can read and watch TV if it's a programme I'm not overly fussed on, however if it's something that I want to watch then I have to leave my book for a while.

Do you eat or drink whilst reading?
Yes.. always a cuppa or hot chocolate in my giant mug! 
Snacks are ok, but main meals I never read at.

One book at a time or several on the go?
Always one at a time. 
I envy people that can read more than one but I get to confused with characters and plots so would rather give my attention to one at a time,

Read at home or everywhere?
Anywhere and everywhere!

Can you read on the move? Car or train?
I can read on the train but only if I'm travelling forward!
Car is a no -go mainly because I do most of the driving but if I'm a passenger I can read a little on straight roads like motorways but side roads and reading makes me feel quite nauseous.

Read aloud or silently in your head?
Always in my head! 
Its just weird to hear myself reading out loud unless its to my nieces and nephews.

Bookmark or Random piece of paper?

I have a few different ones but this one is by far my favourite!

Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
Until I became a blogger and book reviewer I never thought any different - I had a book to read so I read it. However, since my life has been taken over and I've been lucky enough to get ARC's via ebook and physical I've become obsessed with keeping books new. I've got quite a collection now of duplicates - I can read the ebook and keep the physical nice and in tact - just don't tell my other half!!

Do you write in books?
No, never.
