It’s time to do my first book tag of 2018! I saw the Currently Reading book tag on someone else’s book blog (I can’t remember so sorry if it was you) and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to do it. It fits in well with it being my first book tag of the year so here it is. So here it is.
- What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading Eon by Alison Goodman. So far I am really enjoying this book. I didn’t think I would but I’m loving it! Obviously, the feels of Mulan are there but it’s done in a really nice way. I can’t wait to see how it continues.
2. How many books do you normally read at once?
I normally read one book at a time. I try not to read more than one book at once, but recently I have at least been reading 2 at a time. I have no idea how this started but it’s just been happening.
3. If you are reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch books?
I try to get to a point in the book where either the action hasn’t started yet or when a major event has occurred. Normally it works out well.
4. Do you ever switch bookmarks while you’re partway through a book?
I actually try to match the book to the bookmarks I have before I start the book. I don’t like switching the bookmark halfway through the book. It annoys me somehow if I do.
5. Where do you keep the book(s) you’re currently reading?
When I’m not reading them, they are either next to me or the table next to my bed. I don’t put them back on the shelves until they have been completed.
6. What time of the day do you spend the most time reading?
I guess I could say when I am on my way to and from work. I always read a lot when I’m traveling around.
7. How long do you typically read in one sitting?
I sometimes try to read the whole day. If not I will try to read for at least 3 hours to feel like I have read a good amount
8. Do you read hardbacks with the dust jacket on or off?
Yes, I do. It feels weird if I read a hardcover with the dustjacket on. It makes me think the book is slipping from my hands every time I have the dust jacket on. Also, it’s quite hard to hold the book if the dust jacket is on.
9. What position do you mainly use to read?
I mainly use reading on my bed or on the train. Both work quite well and I always get a good amount of reading done.
10. Do you take the book you’re currently reading with you everywhere you go?
Yes. I never leave the house without it. I always try to have a bag big enough to make sure the book doesn’t get damaged when in my bag and my book fits in it properly.
11. How often do you upload your Goodreads progress on the book you’re currently reading?
I normally do it when I have at least read 100 pages more than my last update. With doing this, I only update my reading progress between 3 to 7 times per book (depending on the length). I also update it when something either heartwarming or unexpected happens.
I love doing these sort of blog posts. I knew I had to do this in the beginning of the year so here it is. I think I might cut down the number of tags I do this year as so many were posted last year. Over the years, my reading has definitely changed so it’s nice answering the question that made me look at what I have been doing differently. If you are interested in doing this tag then definitely do it. I would highly recommend it!
