How Many Books Do You Usually Read At Once?
and and and and
I’m currently reading 3 books but I usually am only reading 2 – 1 for school and 1 for pleasure. However, in the months where I’m not at school, as much as I try to stick to only 1 or 2, my currently-reading shelf can gt aa bit full – anywhere from 1 to 5 or even 7 or 8 which even just typing that makes me uncomfortable.
How Do You Decide When To Switch Between Multiple Reads?
If I’m reading something for a class or a specific blog post I will prioritise that otherwise, I will just read whatever I want to in that moment. If I’m reading a big book I will also try to prioritise that and maybe chuck on the audiobook but generally, if I’ve picked up another book it’s because I wasn’t enjoying the last one so, I’ll probably just continue with whatever the new book I picked out was.
Do You Ever Switch Bookmarks Partway Through A Book?
Uhh no. I have a whole jar full of bookmarks but, I generally only use the same 2-3 old pieces of folded paper as bookmarks because I’m clearly trash, just like my bookmarks.
Where Do You Keep the Book(s) You’re Currently Reading?
I generally keep my current read in my tote bag because I almost exclusively read on the bus, so my current reads don’t really come out of the bag at home unless I’ve finished the book. My other current reads will stay on the shelf nearest my bed where I can easily access them. Usually, it’s just a cycle of in the tote bag – out of the tote bag – in the tote bag, a rinse, wash repeat kind of thing.
What Time Of Day Do You Read The Most?
I generally read the most between 8am and 5pm. I would say the best reading time for me though, is around 8-10am because that’s generally when I travel to school and I’m usually a lot more tired when I’m going home from Uni, so my reading speed is a lot slower and I’m a lot more likely to get distracted!
How Long Do You Typically Read In One Session?
I would say that I generally only read in 30-45 minute sessions because I read on the bus and because I get distracted really easily. But, if it’s a really good book I can probably go for around an hour without taking a break, which for me is pretty damn good. I honestly don’t know how people can read books all in one sitting, they must have superpowers.
Do You Read Hardbacks With the Dust Jacket Off?
Yes! If it’s my copy I will, but I rarely read hardbacks so this is almost an irrelevant question for me. That being said, I do get some hardbacks from the library and because they have the plastic covers on them, I guess I read with the jackets on them because we can’t exactly take them off???
What Position Do You Mainly Use To Read?
Sitting up? Chair position? I don’t know what it’s called? I mainly read on the bus or listening to audiobooks while I’m working at my desk, so whatever that is, I guess???
Do You Take Your Current Read With You Everywhere You Go?
Yes and no! When I leave the house I’m generally only going to Uni or to work and I always take a book with me to both of these places! But, if I’m going anywhere else I’m probably only going grocery shopping, so I guess my official answer is no? I feel like such a bad book blogger now…
How Often Do You Update Your Goodreads Reading Progress?
I don’t always update my Goodreads progress as I’m reading the book unless I have a comment to make or I’m actively writing out my notes that way like I did with Winter.
