How many books do you usually read at once?
I usually read one, at a time. There aren’t any good bookstores or libraries near me, so I mostly read on my phone. If I do have a paperback version of the book I want to read, I read two at a time, one on my phone and the paperback. It has worked well for me, so far.
How do you decide when to switch between multiple reads?
I don’t have any particular criteria, I listen to audiobooks while travelling. But if I’m in the process of reading two books at a time, I would prefer to read the one that is so good that I couldn’t think of doing anything but reading.
Do you ever switch bookmarks partway through a book?
I don’t use bookmarks. I prefer to remember the page numbers. It works great in keeping track of my reading progress as well.
What time of day do you read the most?
Usually evening or night. But if the book is so good that nothing else matters, I would wake up at 4:00am to know how it ends.
How long do you typically read in one session?
I don’t have a fixed time period. I read till I finish the book or fall asleep or realise that I have a test that I haven’t started preparing for. All of it usually happens after midnight.
Do you read hardcovers with the dust jacket off?
Not really. But if they keep falling off, I take them and keep them aside and put them back on after I’m done reading.
What position do you mainly use to read?
*thinking* I usually read while sitting/laying on my bed or if Im waiting for something to happen, I read standing up. But I don’t usually read while standing for more than 10 to 15 minutes.
Do you take your current read with you everywhere you go?
90% of the books I read are on my phone. So, yes, I (used to) take my read with me everywhere I go, except school and church.
How often do you update your Goodreads reading progress?
Rarely. I always forget that I have a Goodreads profile and when I do remember, I update it in bulk. I’ll add 7 – 10 books to my ‘read’ list and a few more to ‘want to read’.
Also, a little note regarding this month’s posting schedule. Due to the poetry series held here last month, I was unable to follow up on a few tags that I had been tagged for. So, I’ll be doing tags the entire month and to accommodate all of them, I’ll be posting twice a week, on Wednesdays and Fridays. Thank you so much for all the tags and I look forward to doing them!!
