The Reading Tag

Wierdly,  I was just contemplating a post about my favourite book series when Faye Olivia put up her Reading Tag post and I thought it looked fun so of course I had to join in... 

Do you have a certain place for reading at home?
Usually on the sofa under the blanket, or sometimes the bath.

Bookmark or random piece of paper?
If its not on my kindle, and If I don't devour it in one sitting, usually its a post-it so it doesn't fall out

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter or a certain number of pages?
I usually have to keep going until I finish the book to be totally truthful, unless something comes up (like work or sleep). Then it tends to be just stopping when I have to.

Do you eat or drink when reading?
Cup of coffee or tea, and cake. A must. Or wine in the bath.

One book at a time or several at once?
One at a time, non-fiction being the obvious exception.

Reading at home or everywhere?
Once I start a book its generally everywhere until its done if I NEED to finish - like when the new Game of Thrones book is out for example. Otherwise I try to keep it to just on the way to work so it doesn't take over my life until its done. I have lost DAYS to my kindle before.

Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Definitely read silently in my head. That said, exclaimations and full on gut-busting laughter are often exceptions to this.

Do you ever read ahead or skip pages?
NO SKIPPING! ok I "may" have peaked at the end of the last Harry Potter but I was young and impatient back then.

Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
I try to keep my books nice, it sometimes works that way

Do you ever write in books?

What are you currently reading?
I've just finished a big re-read of a book series, so looking for something new. Open to suggestions! 

If you read lots, get in on the act and do this too! Lets keep this thing going!!
