Hello, welcome back to my blog!
Today I will be answering some questions that you asked me on my Instagram story: all about books and reading. I found them all very good, but only picked ten! I hope you enjoy 😊
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
Usually my bedroom where I can block out any noises, though the garden can be nice. My bed is very comfy and no-one can disturb me there!
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
You may have seen my cute beaded bookmark in my Instagram photos. I will always use that one, but if I don’t have it with me I’ll use a random piece of paper.
Can you stop reading at any point in time or do you have to stop at a certain point, page or chapter?
I try to read until a page ending in 00 (like 100, 200) though sometimes I have to put my book down at the end of a paragraph.
Do you eat or drink while reading?
I sometimes have chewing gum, or a glass of water. Though when I am drinking, I get a bit distracted from the book because I’m concentrating on two things.
Can you read whilst listening to music or watching TV?
I can read on the bus or train, though most of the conversation is blurred over eachother. However, at home, I can’t read with music or TV in the background. Music is too distracting and even ‘calm’ music is too much for me 😂
One book at a time, or several at once?
Just one at a time. I means I can finish them faster, usually.
Reading at home or everywhere?
Wherever I can! Library, train, social occasions even…
Do you read ahead or skip pages?
I do read very fast and miss things sometimes but I never skip pages!
Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Always silently, I don’t want people hearing the context of some of the books I read…
Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
Most of the books I read are borrowed from the library so I have to keep them in good condition! If it’s my own, I read it comfortably. If that breaks the spine then it’s just unfortunate. Though I try to keep them new so that I can give them to a charity shop with it looking nice.
Thank you for reading! I would love to hear your answers to these questions in the comments below.
I hope you have a lovely day!
