Book Lover's Book Tag

*Hello loves! I'm back with another book tag. This one is all about reading habits and ticks. This is one of the simpler tags I've done but it was still fun. I found it on Jo Linsdell's book blog. You can see her original post here.


Book Lover's Book Tag


1. Do you have a specific place for reading?

I don't really. I read at the kitchen table, my reading chair, our couch, in my bed. I'm really not picky when it comes to reading.


2. Bookmarks or random pieces of paper?

Definitely bookmarks. I have so many of them that it would be a waste of money not to use them.

3. Can you just stop reading anywhere or do you need to finish a chapter?

I prefer to finish a chapter, but sometimes life doesn't allow for that. A.K.A. when my kids are fighting and I need to play referee. 😅 

4. Do you eat or drink while reading?

I don't usually eat cause messy fingers and books don't go well together. But I always have a cup of coffee in my hand.

5. Music or TV while reading?

I don't watch TV so that would be a no for me. I typically only listen to music for ambiance. If there's any talking/singing I won't be able to focus on what I'm reading.

6. One book at a time or several?

I'm a one book at a time kind of person. Even if I have more than one book started I will only be able to focus on and finish one at a time.

7. Do you read ahead or skip pages?

Only if the book is deathly boring or I'm not interested in it. I find that if I'm looking ahead or always seeing how much of it is left it's a good sign that I should just dnf the book.

8. Do you prefer to read at home or elsewhere?

I am 1000% a homebody. I love reading at home and getting cozy with my books. People are super distracting for me so it would be kind of pointless to try to read outside of my home.

9. Read out loud or silently?

I read out loud to my kids! But when it's just me I read silently.

10. Do you write in your books? 

No. And not because I think it's bad but just because I can't possibly take the time to do it. lol. If there's something in the book worth writing about chances are I'm way too engrossed in what's going on to stop and write about it. 

That's it for the Book Lover's Tag! What a fun tag. Do you do any of these habits as well? I'd love to know!

Happy reading,
