I saw these questions on a friend’s blog and I thought they would be fun to answer here!
How Many Books Do You Usually Read At Once?
Oh goodness….I am actively reading three right now, and usually at all times. One on audio, one in real, paper-book form, and one on my kindle. I know that sounds a bit crazy, but I have over an hour commute and the audio is a perfect way for me to get through that drive! My phone goes with me everywhere, so having one on the kindle ensures that any lines I wait in will be spent reading a book. Then there is my trusty good-old-fashioned book that I like to curl up and read with.
However, with that said, Goodreads currently has me reading 7 books, which means that I have started multiple books and have had to switch to hit a deadline for a publishing date or a return-to-library date, and then will go back once I’ve completed the first book.
How Do You Decide When To Switch Between Multiple Reads?
Sometimes I switch because it’s convenient. The car demands audio, out somewhere with my phone means I get to jump into the Kindle book. It all just depends on my location.
Do You Ever Switch Bookmarks Partway Through A Book?
I had never done this early in my life, however, my daughter has lately been making me bookmarks. Once she gives me one, she gets upset to not see it in a book, even if the one that is currently in a book is also made by her. So, I end up having to switch out to the newest bookmark.
Where Do You Keep the Book(s) You’re Currently Reading?
I try really hard to put it on the bookshelf, where I’ll be able to find it when I go looking for it, but a lot of times, it’s sitting on my bedside table.
What Time of Day Do You Read the Most?
I read the most at night, but over lunch I’ll try to read a bit as well.
How Long Do You Typically Read in One Session?
With two kids, a job, and two cats, I am really proud if I get 30 mins in at one time.
Do You Read Hardbacks with the Dust Jacket Off?
The dust jacket is a work of art and should be removed to keep it safe. 100 PERCENT. The jacket is removed and placed in a safe location on my bookshelf until I have finished the book.
What Position Do You Mainly Use to Read?
I like to have my feet up on the couch or footrest. If I’m in bed, I try to sit up, once I’m laying down, I inevitably fall asleep with the book hitting me in the face.
Do You Take Your Current Read with You Everywhere You Go?
Yes, there is always a book with me….the kindle makes things quite easy!
How Often Do You Update Your Goodreads Reading Progress?
I update it every few days. Sometimes I’m really good at doing it daily, but not all the time. My favorite is when the kindle updates Goodreads for me!
