Reading Habits

  1. Do you have a certain place in your home for reading? My bedroom.  
  2. Bookmark or random piece of paper? Bookmarks, I collect them. (I have accidentally returned books to the library with a special bookmark and grieved over it's loss.) :P 
  3. Can you  just stop reading or do you have to stop read after a chapter / certain number of pages? No, I will read until my eyes are bleeding. LOL I have even pretended to be sick to get out of work the next day. 
  4. Do you eat or drink while read? No, I don't want crumbs in my bed because I didn't aim for my mouth correctly. 
  5. Multitasking: music or TV while reading? Nope. I am using my senses in my books world. 
  6. One book at a time or several at once? Several, because I read for a living (editor) and for enjoyment. 
  7. Reading at home or everywhere? Everywhere. It is a miracle I don't have traffic tickets for RWD (reading while driving). ROFLMAO 
  8. Reading out loud or silently in your head? Silently to myself. Out loud burst of reaction and talking to the characters and/or author. 
  9. Do you read ahead or even skip pages? No. I have and found that I would not finish a book because I ruined it for myself. So now, I don't ruin the suspense. 
  10. Barking the spine or keeping it like new? Keeping it like new. I will flip if someone folds down pages. I especially abhor people who lick their finger to turn the pages on one of my books. 
  11. Do you write in your books. No, I will take notes in a notepad or a scrap of paper.
